After much consideration and some gentle nagging, I've decided to amend what I posted yesterday.
In retrospect, Elton John wasn't really the target of my anger, but rather the incompetent reporter who couldn't be bothered to write a real story, and as such, is the actual sexist asshole. His story was mostly conjecture. Only twice did he actually quote EJ, and neither quote was especially inflamatory unless read in the context of story. The reporter probably made a lot of shit up to sell a story.
However, Sir Elton is still partially to blame for discussing his friends' private lives with reporters. For shame.
