OUT Journalist Comes Out As Homocon

Out Magazine writer Chadwick Moore (above right) shares with the New York Post that, due to the backlash to his feature article with alt-right homocon Milo Yiannopolous, he now feels the need to "come out" as a homocon himself.

At the time, LGBTs were incensed that Moore treated his subject with such kid gloves. This would perhaps explain why his OUT article was so flowery towards Yiannopolous.

After the article was published, Moore says many longtime friends dropped him, he got the cold-shoulder at this favorite gay bar, and even got called a Nazi for supporting strengthening U.S. borders.

He goes on to declare how liberals actually against free speech, and the many difficulties of being conservative in New York City.

From his  the New York Post:

When I was growing up in the Midwest, coming out to my family at the age of 15 was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. Today, it’s just as nerve-wracking coming out to all of New York as a conservative. But, like when I was 15, it’s also weirdly exciting.

I’ve already told my family, and it’s brought me closer to my father. He’s a Republican and a farmer in Iowa, and for years we just didn’t have very much to talk about. But after Trump’s inauguration, we chatted for two hours, bonding over the ridiculousness of lefties. But we also got serious: He told me that he is proud of my writing, and I opened up about my personal life in a way I never had before to him.

I’ve made some new friends and also lost some who refuse to speak to me. I’ve come around on Republican pundit Ann Coulter, who I now think is smart and funny and not a totally hateful, self-righteous bigot. A year ago, this would have been unfathomable to me.

I even went on a date this past week with a good-looking Republican construction worker, someone I previously would not have given a shot.

Moore sounds a bit self-important when he writes, "Coming out to all of New York..." As if everyone in the world knows who he is? Ego can be such a funny thing.

It's hard to imagine how, reading his essay, that he's completely the victim in all this. I think he comes across as a bit too butt hurt over the Milo article.

And speaking of butt hurt - perhaps it's a bit oversharing with "all of New York" to respond this way when asked how the construction worker date went:
