Dan Choi Apologizes for Slur Used Against Harry Reid


Dan Choi tweeted an apology for a slur he used in a Village Voice interview when discussing Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

Said Choi: "I appreciate your criticism; I apologize for using the slur, and resolve to educate others in any capacity I'm afforded in the future."

According to Politico's Ben Smith, "'Harry Reid is a pussy,' Choi told the Voice, 'and he'll be bleeding once a month.' The comment apparently struck some readers as offensive and degrading to women. 'I am a feminist,' Choi wrote defensively on his Twitter feed Wednesday afternoon."

Pam Spaulding responds.
