Dan Savage fires back at US Senator who says gays need perspective

Dan Savage has hit back at Senator Tom Cotton’s claims that gay people need to get perspective and stop being so outraged by the religious freedom laws in the US.

During an appearance on MSNBC, Savage said that politicians such as Cotton argue that LGBTI rights are far worse elsewhere in the world just so they can justify making it worse in their own country. 

‘You see Jeb Bush and the entire republican field enable these religious bigot-enabling acts. People are going to remember,’ said Savage.

He continued: ‘The hypocrisy of people like Tom Cotton, who wants America to get credit for being better on gay issues but will point to how bad it is elsewhere to justify making it worse here, how do you rationalize that except through some bigot blender brain?’

Over the weekend, US popstar Miley Cyrus urged her fans to ‘Stir Some Sh*t Up’  for Cotton by calling his office and leaving messages comdemning him for his remarks.
