Backstory: During the summer after Parker Molloy had waged a personal attack at my expense, using several homophobic slurs, Grindley responded by threatening to block me, getting on my case for criticising Molloy. In doing so, Grindley totally ignored Molloy's onlne actions which were and still are, a major violation of my right to privacy.
Fast forward, now it's Grindley having to put up with Molloy's near homophobic meltdown which appear to have been caused by someone at Verizon who mistakenly assumed Molloy was male.
Enough with the preamble; Lucas Grindley owes me an apology. I would go so far as to include all the other people Molloy offended on social media, but I don't want to speak for them. They sure as hell said nothing on my behalf so why start now?
As for Parker, to simply refer to him or her as psycho drama queen and an embarrasement to the transgender community is being too kind. I would hope this incident would serve as a final reminder to all the LGBTQ publications to avoid hiring this person at all costs, but as someone has already minded me, that's not likely to happen.
This is why I'm not holding my breath waiting on Grindley to apologize. It's not the nature of gay advocacy writers or anyone in the gay media to hold themselves accountable and transparent, admit he fucked up. Instead I'll just do what everyone else does and pretend nothing happened.
