You may not have been following the whole lawsuit in Canada against McCleans and Mark Styen for him discussing what a book said a book in a book review.... which is -- I don' t know -- isn't it kind of hard to review a book without talking about what it's about? But anyway, here Steyn distills it:

I'm something of a phobiaphobe. I don't subscribe to the concepts of "homophobia" and "Islamophobia." They're a lame rhetorical sleight to end the argument by denying it's an argument at all: you don't have a political disagreement with me over gay marriage or sharia, you have a mental illness.
