I find the idea that Sullivan somehow suddenly “misses” lesbians to be hilarious. He’s jumping on the radical feminist bandwagon after all his years of being one of the most staid, conservative, patriarchy-reinforcing, privileged, gay men on the planet?


Sullivan has made a career out of pushing back against queer activism. It’s his schtick now and it always has been.

For decades, if you wanted to find a wealthy gay white man opposing LGBTQ equality, all you had to do was look for Sullivan.

The idea that he would be radical anything, let alone radical feminist, is too rich for words.

You’ve nailed it. He doesn’t miss lesbians, he just doesn’t like trans people. He never has.
