yes, she has done a lot of harm for the things that she backs, since she is a person that does not use the good methods to get her point across, and she is a really aggressive person, which is not the way that you want to try to talk.
The LGBT rights movement has certainly made progress in the last 10 years, however proponents of the method, including Rosie O'Donnel have done contless damage to the movement. People look at the members of a group to judge those who are pushing forward for it's acceptance and when they see Rosie O'Donnel all they see if a boisterous, loud woman.
Rosie O'Donnell can be very smug at times. A lot of comedians have a problem with going over board with their comedy. She is not the face of the LGBT rights. They are many people associated with the LGBT and I am sure there are more respectable people than Rosie O'Donnell. People should not judge one organization by one person.
I personally agree,The legacy of Rosie O'Donnell revolves most closely around her LGBT activism
and proliferation. O'Donnell is not well-known out of this arena
because she has been so vocal about gay rights. Some people might
vaguely remember she was in a few movies and a TV show, but will always
acknowledge her for her stance on gay rights.
Rosie O'Donnell, despite her celebrite status, is probably seen as a unique case. There are many members of the LGBT community who go a long ways to bring themselves a badname or act abrasive and violent, but people are smart enough to know that Rosie is a unique case who doesn't represent the rest.
