CNS' Starr Unhappy That Gays Might Be Considered 'Extraordinary'
Topic: reporter Penny Starr is rather prone to anti-gay freakouts. She has another one in an April 17 article over the thought that gays might be considered "extraordinary":

The White House announced it is expanding its “Champions of Change” contest, which “spotlights ordinary people doing extraordinary things,” to include gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender individuals.

The announcement posted on the White House website cites President Barack Obama posthumously awarding Harvey Milk the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2009. Milk, a gay man who was elected to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors and later shot to death by a rival politician, served as the inspiration for the expanded contest.

Starr seems to think that gays have never done anything extraordinary ever. That that fits right in with her employer's anti-gay agenda.
