'Bigots' react to Brison's Christmas card
At least one news website had to shut down its comments section running under a story about gay MP Scott Brison's Christmas card. The Globe and Mail web editor said the section was shut down because of "hateful and homophobic remarks."
But Matt Mills, editorial director of Pink Triangle Press, said it's a mistake to block homophobes.
"Gay and lesbian people do know that homophobia exists and is expressed all the time," he said. "Our approach is that shutting down comments when there are homophobic remarks that come out really just drives that homophobia underground and out of the public eye.
