In the letter, which reached GLAAD yesterday, Shalit both apologized for his choice of words, and also asked that the organization correct its website assertion that the goal of his review had been to "promote defamatory anti-gay prejudice to a national audience." His letter ends this way: "I certainly had no intention of casting aspersions on anyone in the gay community or on the community itself. I regret any emotional hurt that may have resulted from my review of Brokeback Mountain." To GLAAD's credit, they ask the visitors to their website to email Shalit and thank him for his clarification. Whew. I was so worried - thank goodness everybody made up.
