As I’ve said before, in the Schmalfeldt controversy, one side is accused of saying harsh things about someone. The other side has a long history of reaching into other’s lives through direct contact. That means saying things to someone. One might be harassment, and the other isn’t.
If a website bothers you, don’t read it.
In May, 2012 this was the advice Bill Schmalfeldt gave to people who did not like his writing:
This diary, short and sweet, is really dedicated to the six people who found no humor whatsoever, thank you, in the piece I wrote yesterday about how it’s the “butt stuff” that male homophobes find so scary about “teh gey”.
It is not an apology.
It’s a suggestion.
Stop reading my stuff.
