Mike Easley’s “Pansy” Comment Lame; Move On
It is pretty amazing watching the gay mountain being made out of the pansy of a molehole comment that NC Governor Mike Easley made in his endorsement of Hillary Clinton. In speaking in support of Clinton Easley said “But this lady right here makes Rocky Balboa look like a pansy.”
Pansy, of course, being a term used to described an effeminate man or gay man.
As Pam Spaulding says Easley’s use of the word was “tacky,” but in the overall scheme of GLBT politics does it really matter?
We have far more to worry about than some than some gubernatorial doofus poor choice of words.
