  1. Women are not our friends.

    Their condescending "support" comes with conditions: that we know our place and never pretend that we are social equals, not pretend that we deserve to be respected as men (rather than fops), and that we never, ever compete with them for the emotional loyalties (much less sexual loyalties) of men they actually are attracted to.

    Some of you really need to begin to understand this

  2. Egads, Rick, what did your mother do to you growing up to make you such a misogynist? O.o

  3. It's a stupid question and Joy should have known better. Also stupid was Carter's scooting away from James-Collier when he acknowledged he kissed men. Are we back in Junior High? Jeez!

    And yes, J-C handled it perfectly by calmly deflecting the stupidity to address what the difference was to him.

    And here's the short Ewan McGregor video clip. Brilliant:

    And here's the longer version, with the stupid question right at the end:

  4. If he said he actually enjoys kissing a man would you bitter, bitter people (the majority it seems though there is some sanity here) still be up in arms about this harmless question?

    In other news, he is freaking hot with his stubble! Can't wait for season 3!

  5. dear troll rick, my mother (and father) march in the pride parades every year. two sixy-something heterosexual adults who go out of their way to be visible and vocal advocates for our communities.

    ie, my straight mother has done more for gay men than you ever will.

  7. I've always enjoyed Jim Carter's work. Great voice too.

  8. I loved Steven Weber's comment about kissing Michael T. Weiss in Jeffrey (1995): he's hairier.

    @Seattle Mike: Thanks for the links. In addition to McGregor's comeback that no one should care anymore about male-male kissing, I loved how he (inadvertantly?) went for the jugular about political memoirs. FWIW, I'm sure he's inured to this sort of question because of his nude scenes in Velvet Goldmine.

  10. Yes, it is a little disappointing that actors have to underline the fact that they REALLY are str8 but it is even more annoying that the media seems obsessed to confirm that it is indeed tough. I even heard John Carr (host of chatty man in the UK) ask the same question.

    I wish more actors would reply the way some actor did once by saying, "what's so difficult about playing a scene with a beautiful person and having to kiss them?"

    The question is still coming from a str8 normative mindset STILL!

    If you're annoyed write to Joy and school her, she probably doesn't even know how dumb she sounds.

  11. the whole premise of even having the question poised is absurd .. as IF heterosexuals cant imagine how "other worldly " a man kissing a man must be .. as IF it were not somehow human
    .. It seem very created to me, a False destain

  12. It is a sign that we still have a long way to go on that road to equality when Joy, the liberal, still asks such a silly question and giggles like a teenage girl when talking about guy on guy stuff.
