The "fine": there was NO FINE... he was guilt tripped into making a 10,000 donation for The Matthew Shepard Foundation (a gay guy who was killed... it was/is a big deal)... i think GLAAD over-reacted, and that Kevin handled it well, to my knowledge...
and, basically... while i know i can't speak before Kevin, i am under the impression that he is not totally homophobic or totally gay-friendly... i think he's just your normal straight dude who probably has some gay friends and is enlightened about homosexuality, as well as life in general. i dont think its his responsibility to be a gay-activist... i think it's cool that he incorporates gay stuff in his movies, and its awesome that at the end of Jay and Silent Bob, he's put in some warning about homophobia to try to appease GLAAD.
lets not put Kev under a microscope, and lets not hate in general... i think people who are homophobic shouldn't put their energy into hate, but something else, productive or neutral.
