When was I in?'  I never knew that, you know, that was the situation."

RoadDavid Halperin: How to be Gay. “Gayness,” Mr. Halperin declares, “is not a state or condition. It’s a mode of perception, an attitude, an ethos: in short, it is a practice.” The great value of traditional gay male culture, he further posits, perhaps even more challengingly, “resides in some of its most despised and repudiated features: gay male femininity, diva worship, aestheticism, snobbery, drama, adoration of glamour, caricature of women and obsession with the figure of the mother.”

  1. I guess it is safe to say Bret Easton Ellis never watched White Collar.

  2. @ Bret Easton Ellis, I guess that's why they call it acting you tool. Or do you think that Christian Bale really is Batman?

  3. working for a company that promotes hate is promoting hate. sorry drive through lady, but it does have to do with the workers. if i worked for a company which donated millions to anti-semitic causes, or whos ceo funneled charity money into anti-miscegenation front groups, it is my problem -- im not in the kkk, but i work as their receptionist.

  4. the one thing i'll say for hipsters is that their children always seem to be better behaved in restaurants than non-hipsters' kids.

  6. RE: David Halperin: How to be Gay

    The original ideal of what it IS to be "gay" was always a contrivance, a put-on, a phony mask based on a twisted character in an old flick...

    Sounds about right. I always hated anything to do with it.

  7. David Halperin sounds like a gay man of a particular age. I believe what is known as "eldergay". Many younger gay man don't want to constantly obsess over women and campy movies about women. Younger gay men don't want to be distinguishable from straights and I for one applaud this.

  8. I don't buy anything Travis Wall just said.

  9. David halperin-- don't know who he is- and don't care. But he certainly doesn't know much about gay people.

  10. David Halperin: Yuck.

    His "book" shows an attitude from a generation of gay men that is ready for the nursing home. Gay men broke away from those horrible stereotypes and learned behaviors a long, long time ago.

    Why? Because they aren't necessary. Gay is about genetics and sexual preference, not what you're wearing, who your watching and where you're going.

    Go back to sleep now, Davie, we'll wake you up when Golden Girls comes on.

  11. Go to hell, David Halperin. You and anyone like you.....

    Go to hell and rot there for all eternity, you pathetic--and deeply emotionally damaged--woman-idolizing, man-hating piece of sh!t......

    I only hope that I live long enough to see the "gay culture" you describe--and its practitioners--become permanently extinct.

  12. Saying that antigay General Mills fire starter "got fired"? He still has a radio show I bet and has a realtor's license still. So he can't be a part of whatever association, big deal. Wonder how long he's been on the radio while a member of it. "Fired" means taking him off the radio and taking his realtor's license I would think, neither has happened.

  13. From the Bret Easton Ellis Wikipedia entry: "When asked in an interview in 2002 whether or not he was gay, Ellis explained that he does not identify himself as gay or straight. He explained that he is comfortable to be thought of as gay, bisexual or heterosexual and that he enjoys playing with his persona, identifying variously as gay, straight and bi to different people over the years." Oh. So he's an actor but nobody buys his shtick?

    Whatever, honey. If I want to know your opinion, I'll check out one of your books from the library.

  14. Now that would be an address whats next the...Chrysler building!

    Posted by: VDUFFORD | Aug 8, 2012 6:05:36 PM

  15. Brett Easton Ellis is a gay guy who hates gay people so much that he once wrote a book about the fashion/modeling industry in which he pretended that everyone in the business is straight. the only gay character in the main story (who ISN'T a model) is killed in a horrible, sadistic way That was written back when Ellis was still pretending HE was straight. He disgusts me beyond words. I guess he's still not over himself.

  16. Manhattan has been completely taken over by the super-rich--many of them absentee foreigners--to the point that it has become a sterile, uninteresting place that is no longer worth spending any time in, except to attend a performance of some sort or see a museum exhibit.....and the conversion of the Chrysler Building to obscenely priced apartments just symptomizes that.

  19. David Halperin is an intelligent and thoughtful writer. One-Hundred Years of Homosexuality is a must read. I still prefer Boswell, but...

    I think that people might want to read what the man actually writes before condemning him to Hell and accusing him of every evil ever committed. Some folks really don't know what they are talking about and they sound like morons. The curse of the internet age.

  20. That is so sad about Randy Travis. I loved his early records. There was always a rumor that he was gay, and, if true, I've got to think that's what's feeding this self-destructive binge. He was probably raised in a seriously homophobic family.

  21. And as for the BEE comment about Bomer, I have to say that I'll support almost anything that keeps Bomer from being cast in the movie of that stupid stupid book.

  22. Poor Mr Reverend, another career ruined by burning grass. Now we have to get him fired from his job talking to "The Lord".

  23. Not interested in Halperin's book. There's something great about certain aspects of gay sensibilities, but not so about old-school gay culture. Oh, it's fun to recall - but I'm so glad that is not going to be the dominant gay culture for anyone going forward in the 21st century. Good riddance.

    I AM interested in living in the penthouse of the Woolworth Building. That would be rad. So would being so super-rich that I could afford such a thing.

  24. Without "old school gay culture" you'd be married to a woman and sucking cock in highway rest stops for solace.

    Posted by: BobN | Aug 8, 2012 8:27:24 PM

  25. What Halperin doesn't get (or won't admit) is that many of those kinds of gay men were rejected by traditional male culture or themselves refused to embrace their own masculinity so they embraced feminity by default. The evolution of gay male culture should naturally be to embrace the masculine...and reject the feminine. Gay men will only survive and PROSPER if they embrace their own masculine power and alliance with other men (gay and straight).
    Those gays who, for lack of a better word, are "frustrated women" hold us all back...
