Given New Times’ usual progressive/tolerant stance on most issues, I was very surprised to read “Confession of a homophobe” in your Feb. 25 edition. Although I support Otis Page’s First Amendment rights, I also support responsible reporting and journalism practices: Printing such a commentary as this, which is largely based on bigotry,
irrational fear (the definition of a phobia, as it turns out), ignorance, and misinformation does not represent responsible journalistic practices
on your part, in my opinion. I hope this is not a sign of the “Times” about what we can expect in future editions.
