As Twitchy reported, Chad Felix Greene kicked the hornets’ nest the other day in The Federalist with a piece describing how, for him, it was more of a stigma to come out as a conservative than it was to come out as gay.
The progressive masses then descended, proving his point: no one had any problem with him being gay, but being a conservative was a horrific lifestyle choice that called for him to be silenced and ostracised. And then there was “sports” site Deadspin. Oh, Deadspin:
The evolution of Deadspin from zany irreverent sports blog to hammer of totalitarian injustice for any opinion different than far left wing politics is utterly fascinating. But the fact that so many in sports media have followed their lead is even more shocking. pic.twitter.com/FS2Yu5AFeF

Deadspin’s piece, “Conservative Gays Need To Shut The F**k Up,” was written by Lauren Theisen, who also took a shot at Barstool Sports writer Pat, who didn’t appreciate being called a “traitorous queer” and “a much more boring example of queer identity.”

Pat wrote his own piece over at Barstool Sports, which actually reports on sports, incidentally:
Newsflash babe, I don’t “allow discrimination” and I don’t get “performatively heated” over anything other than Shawn Mendes performing in the rain.
What I do do is not take life too seriously. I understand that different people have different opinions. I don’t force my beliefs down others’ throats and I understand that sometimes calling someone out does more harm than good. I don’t have to act a certain way or inject myself into every conversation that I don’t agree with.
As far as my, “complicity in my boss’s ongoing harassment campaigns against women in sports media” goes, I have nothing to say other than this is the same tired argument we’ve heard time and again from the attention-starved writers at Deadspin trying to hang onto whatever thread of relevancy they have left. (In this case, none.)
If you have anything else to say, call me up tomorrow morning on Barstool Breakfast, 7-9AM 833-857-8665. That’s 833-85-STOOL. Other than that, take your own advice: shut the f**k up, and keep my name out yo mouth.

This lady sucks hard. Well done Pat. Way to teach this horrid woman the lesson she needed. Sadly her ilk are too progressive and tolerant to listen to others’ ideas and opinions

@theisen95 trying to use Barstool to get famous? Like ever other deadspin writer leeching Barstool for clicks. Since her writing certainly isn’t going to get her there.

Thank you for this article Pat. I’m a gay conservative and appreciate you defending us. Keep up the great work at Barstool.
