Betty White continues to be wonderful in this interview with Larry King, where she explains that she just doesn’t understand homophobes:
Echoing the sentiment from her 2010 Parade interview, in which she first came out in support of gay rights, White says she doesn’t understand why homophobes think same-sex relationships are any of their business.
“I don’t care whom you sleep with,” she said. “It’s ‘what kind of human being are you?’ I don’t understand [why people are antigay], it’s such a personal private business and it’s none of mine.”
In her initial 2010 interview, White said “I don’t know how people can get so anti-something. Mind your own business, take care of your affairs, and don’t worry about other people so much.”
They’re only anti-gay because of bigotry shielded by religion. Once that drops away, there is no rational reason to oppose equality. Keep speaking up, Betty.
