Holy toilet stall blowjobs, I’m friends with all seven Log Cabin Republicans and I’ve sat through many a lament about “gay culture,” yet I’ve never heard a rant as embittered as dating blogger Charles’s “The End of Gay Pride” post. I'd somehow missed it until now. Is this halal? To shvitz about a shvitz post? Whatever, I can’t help it.

 

The moneyshot:

Gay men suck at life. They somehow come through this culture so jaded and shallow that they have nothing to offer the world other than fashion, makeup, and decorating advice. As a species of human they are singlemindedly searching for raunchy sex and whether intelligent or not are incapable of not having affects like a woman in conversation. I’ve decided that I no longer belong to this culture and that my sexuality will be defined as something else (suggestions welcome).

And look at the comments so far! They’re so considered and understanding! Who’s ever heard of a minority group (whether sexual, ethnic, or religious) that doesn’t flip out in response to that sort of venomous internal criticism? The appropriate response in the age of American identity politics, in case you commenters are a bit slow on the uptake, is to accuse the speaker of being a spineless self-loather who’s internalized all the sick prejudices of America’s evil middle-class suburban honkey heterosexual Episcopalians (shiver).

Well, fair play to the commenters for responding with such empathy and grace. America would be a better place if more minority communities dealt in that way with even mild internal criticism.
