We called it last night — just as we learned that “creepy ass cracker,” in the context of the George Zimmerman trial, isn’t necessarily racist and perhaps even a compliment, today brings another vocabulary lesson. Alec Baldwin’s wife Hilaria, defending her husband against charges of homophobia, would like her followers to click over to Gothamist and learn that “toxic little queen” isn’t a gay slur in her husband’s culture. Alec Baldwin explains:

Number two, the idea of me calling this guy a “queen” and that being something that people thought is homophobic…a queen to me has a different meaning. It’s somebody who’s just above. It doesn’t have any necessarily sexual connotations. To me a queen… I know women that act queeny, I know men that are straight that act queeny, and I know gay men that act queeny. It doesn’t have to be a definite sexual connotation, or a homophobic connotation. To me those are people who think the rules don’t apply to them.

Wow, good thing he cleared that up! That, along with the suggestion that reporter George Stark would actually enjoy Baldwin’s boot entering a certain orifice, had a lot of people concerned. GLAAD is OK with Baldwin’s explanation, though, as are most “rational people.” What’s really offensive is suggesting Alec Baldwin is homophobic.

So, we can all use that word now?
