Huffington Post: Sandra Fluke Says Monica Crowley Insult Was 'Blatant Homophobia'


April 27, 2012- Georgetown University law student Sandra Fluke responded to Fox News pundit Monica Crowley's tweet on Thursday, saying she was disturbed by the conservative commentator's "blatant homophobia."

“I’m not going to let this kind of thing get to me personally,” Fluke said during an appearance on MSNBC's "The Ed Show." “What really bothers me about it [is] the blatant homophobia in the comment, and the idea that that is an acceptable thing to say publicly.”

Crowley caused a stir on Thursday when she responded to the news of Fluke getting engaged to her longtime boyfriend by tweeting, "To a man?"

During the MSNBC interview, Fluke said she was most disturbed that Crowley intended the tweet as an insulting joke.

“I don’t want an apology from anyone personally,” Fluke said. “I think it is possible she owes an apology to the LGBTQ community, because I am not offended to be asked whether or not I’m with a woman. It’s not offensive to me to be gay, but it was clearly meant as an insult.”
