Media, Sexism

So, what does an old, white, homophobic, misogynistic, conservative asshole look like? Well, take a look at this guy. This goof is called Pat Robertson. He’s a televangelist.

All communities have their problems and their conflicts. Sometimes belonging to several communities that don’t always overlap can be a bit of a problem.
