Exactly how did politics get involved at all?) is a complete non-even to the vast majority of the population. You could stop 100 strangers on the street, and likely not find any of them even knew this took place. So what you are doing is just as much an overreaction as what GLAAD did.
You can't have it both ways.
I used politics as the idiom 'to play politics', meaning to manipulate to one's own agenda. It's perfectly legitimate. Instead you try to dismiss my comment by focusing on it, rather than addressing the main points I made. And it doesn't matter how many people do or don't know whether this happened. Heck, most people don't even have a clue about politics but that doesn't make it any less important.
I don't have any problem with GLAAD being allowed to take the action that it has. It's just political correctness gone wrong and it is counter-productive to their intended aims.
