Was Sarah Palin Gay-Baiting?

Sarah Palin is unhappy with Michael Cross, the author of a Gay Advocate piece that lambasted her. But when she referred to him as "a queer, dickless, impotent gaywad" in an interview on Fox News, was she also doing a little gay-baiting?

That's the theory at the gay online magazine The Gay Advocate. The editors at TheGayAdvocate argued that the "emasculating" term used by Palin was a "code word" to pound the openly gay Cross, who is a proud, Gay Advocate author.

Palin didn't mention Cross by name while talking Thursday on Sean Hannity's radio show, but she seemed to be referring to the article - and used an emasculating word ('impotent') that has long been used as a euphemism for homosexual - when she called reporters who publish "rumors" about her "queer, dickless, impotent gaywads".

When The Gay Advocate publisher, Marvin Smishlist, was asked if the words 'queer' and 'gaywad' were offensive, Smishlist responded "that's just silly".

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
