I have in fact now finished listening to the whole thing! (Er, at least, the hour and 37 minutes of it linked to – the youtube recording seemed to cut of abruptly before he was entirely done speaking.)

I am impressed at how passionately he argues against homophobic attitudes, and how he chastises hypocrisy. I'm sure it caused many heads to explode, because at the end of the day, what many people want is a legitimizing reason to look down on others (his mentions of lashon hara were clearly not random examples), and people don't like their punching bags taken away.

But very little he said surprised me, and in fact it made me feel a bit precient in what I wrote in my other comment to [personal profile] liv and to you.

ETA: To clarify, I don't for a moment believe that Dweck should be castigated or attacked from the left. But as magnanimous as his position is, it still is homophobic. The homophobia is not his, but, as he understands it, his god's. It clearly sorrows him that this is so; he is left trying to cope with it.

Miscellaneous. Eclectic. Random. Perhaps markedly literate, or at least suffering from the compulsion to read any text that presents itself, including cereal boxes.
