The other day I noticed the site’s Authority rating at Technorati had gone up one. Turns out David over at My Small Gay World posted an article a little over a week ago about the piece I published here and at American Chronicle on gay marriage. He was nice enough to quote a decent chunk of it and even referred to yours truly as a “handsome, straight, baseball-loving bearded dude,” which I’d say is pretty on-the-nose. I appreciate the link and the kind words, David, and am only too happy to return to favor.
Check out David’s blog if you get a minute, be you gay, straight or undecided. I dig it for mostly egotistical reasons; with its eclectic combination of smartly written, earnest articles on gay history and culture, alongside photos of chiseled, well-oiled male models, it strikes me as a gay version of my humble little website here. Today’s article is about artist Jean-Marc Plassard; yesterday, David wrote about a crucial moment in the history of the gay liberation movement; and the day before that was devoted to the rumor that Prison Break star Wentworth Miller is banging actor Luke McFarlane of Over There — I’d say that runs the gamut, wouldn’t you?
Even among some of us who are supportive of gay rights causes, there’s this assumption that finding homosexual culture or behavior repulsive is a prerequisite for being straight. That’s really too bad. Just take a minute, my hetero brothers and sisters, to browse David’s site, read some of what he’s written over there, and see for yourself that gay is just another facet of the human condition. It’s not where my interests lie, it doesn’t melt my butter, personally, but thank God for it. Diversity is good, see.
Okay, end of lecture. Everyone back to work, this anal lube ain’t gonna sell itself.
