He complained that shatner didn't go over the top to embrace his gayness back in the day. Wtf? I thought that's what "they" wanted. To be treated like anyone else. No special treatment. Etc. Nope. "They" want you and I to shout from the rooftops how "ok" we are that "they" are gay. Eff that. An effing gay bully.
