Last week on Jezebel Groupthink, contributor SlayneJayneAllyson made the point that although it’s completely okay to hate Ann Coulter, it’s entirely not okay to call her a transsexual.

We completely agree. Using insults like tranny and gay make it sound like it’s a bad thing to be transsexual or homosexual, and quite obviously it’s not.

As the author noted in Groupthink, there are numerous reasons to hate Ann Coulter. A couple were noted in the piece, but here’s a few more to provide you with ammo to use against her, rather than resorting to petty and childish insults that belong on the playground.

:”I was going to have a few comments about John Edwards but you have to go into rehab if you use the word faggot.” –at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference

:”Liberals love America like O.J. loved Nicole.”

:”We should invade their countries, kill their leaders, and convert them to Christianity.”

:”My only regret with Timothy McVeigh is he did not go to the New York Times Building.”

:”God gave us the earth. We have dominion over the plants, the animals, the trees. God said, ‘Earth is yours. Take it. Rape it. It’s yours.'”

Even GCR can’t believe the last one, and we’ve heard it all.

So in conclusion, kids, using transsexual and gay as insults hurts both transsexuals and gays, and why would you resort to something so petty when there’s already so much better content to work with?
