For posting too many quotes like this (Becker):
"Creative contributors to films divorce in large numbers, often several times. Many have frequent affairs, often while married, they have children without marriage, they have significant numbers of abortions, have a higher than average presence of gays, especially in certain of the creative categories, who are open about their sexual preferences, they take cocaine and other drugs, and generally they lead a life style that differs greatly from what is more representative of the American public. By contrast, an important base of the Republican Party is against out of wedlock births, strongly pro life and against abortions, against gays, especially those who adopt an publicly gay lifestyle, against affairs while married, and very much oppose the legalization of drugs like cocaine and even marijuana."
Everyone's entitled to their own opinion. And man I certainly have quite a few. But if I were to write something scathing like that basically saying that the average "creative" type is a gay, drug abusing, baby-killer, I would like to think I'd back it up with some data or something. I'd like to think my stereotypes are a little more informed than that. In any case, this kind of post has been a recurring pattern over at Becker-Posner, and while I once really admired Dr. Becker, I find myself becoming more offended than enlightened by their occasional posts.
