Yesterday, during an afternoon panel at Netroots Nations, Dan Choi decided to make his feelings known on those that aren’t on bored with marriage equality. While a audience commentator was asking a question as he admitted that as a bisexual man he wasn’t a fan of marriage equality, Choi decided to rip up a picture of President Obama to make a very direct point.

Soon after, news of Choi’s exploits permeated social media and news blogs – surely, given the “media hungry” Choi the attention he so craves.
