DoonanRoadBarney's Creative Director Simon Doonan categorizes gay and straight foods: “Gay foods are more decorative; they’re more frivolous. The macaron craze is the ne plus ultra of gay fooderie. I can’t believe any red-blooded straight guy can even walk into a macaron shop. If you wanted to ruin a politician’s career, just publish a picture of him shopping for macarons.”

    Maybe it wasn’t a typo and Sinead made love to nine people other than her husband.

  2. Rick says

    I don’t even know what a macaron is–further evidence, I guess, that I am a “bad gay” (LOL)

    Is that just a new spelling for macaroon and do macaron shops exist anywhere other than Manhattan?

    I am just dying to know……as I wait for the Orange Bowl to begin

    This is all hilarious – macaroon, macaron, maricon – and here is Little Kiwi at it again with Rick, pecking like an irritating titmouse (though Rick wisely never responds – talk about unrequited love!) and the story about those twins was as nutty and funny as New York ever gets. All of it priceless.

  4. Will says

    Glad someone else already caught the bone-headed mistake re Margaret Marshall. Her retirement was newsworthy back in July 2010.

  5. Paul R says

    Doonan is embarrassing. I know he’s promoting his book, but seriously–gay and straight foods? And he pretends that his target audience is straight women who want to be empowered?

    So all gays are thin, dainty little flowers who eat healthy stuff, and all straight guys are big oafs who slam down crap. Aren’t we beyond those kinds of stereotypes? Because I know plenty of fat gays and built straights.

    As do most of us. Sorry, but that was the most annoying thing I’ve ever read in the NYT.

    Someone had the balls to cancel Martha’s show? They must have had balls bigger than hers.

  7. Sean in Dallas says

    A macaron is a dangerously good bite-sized sandwich cookie. In specialty shops you can get more exotic flavors like lavender, but they generally come in lemon, orange, chocolate, and different berry flavors.

    If you haven’t tried them, do yourself a favor and get some. They’re worth it.

    Re: the MIT suit that makes you feel like you’re 70 years old. Since I am already past 70 would it make me feel like I was 140 years old?
