ATL pundit finds new way to hate: transphobia

Add this share

Shrill Atlanta dick Erick Erickson poked the hornet's nest that is Twitter on Thursday, mocking convicted WikiLeaker Bradley Manning's desire to live as a woman. He drew jeers and cheers.

With the eloquence that is Erickson's anti-gay, homophobic and transphobic blather, the WSB radio host, blogger and Fox News pundit let loose with this about 5 a.m.

Of course he did. Not satisfied with himself, he continued to poke, engage and mock Manning. Just like he did when the slammed the Boy Scouts for going gay.

Critics were not pleased.

Like really, you expected Manning's disclosure to spur a highbrow discussion about transgender and gender identity issues? Please.
