Michelangelo thinks this is much ado about nothing.  Joy disagrees.  There’s another guy in the video, but he’s not helpful to the discussion.

I’ll let commenters argue about this, but my initial thoughts are that, though words are indeed powerful and can be very hurtful, it’s always useful to choose one’s battles wisely. Somebody, somewhere on the internet, said of this controversy, “If Glee and Susan Sarandon are our enemies now, we’re doomed.”  That struck me as sane.  It could be used constructively as a teachable moment, though.
