Wallis and Blades It's hard to take a radio show seriously when it gets its name from a gay stereotype.

As a gay man I detest the men who act like flamming sissies. It gives the rest of us normal gay men a bad rap. The unnatural speech, hip and hand movements, etc... Theses men are not women for christ sake and need to stop acting like them.

I agree with you. And the worst ones are the flamers on tv and other media who simply refuse to admit the obvious.

Sounds to me like somebody has some issues with their own masculinity.

You people are awful. DanielP, would you not make the argument in your own defense "Why would I CHOOSE to be gay and live a harder life?"

Well, why would one CHOOOSE a high pitched voice to be singled out even easier? It's not natural to you, but it sure is natural to them. You freaking date drag queens and you have this to say about someone being effeminate? Shame on you.

It's one thing to actually be gender non conforming, or whatever, and it's another to play act in a stereotypical manner.

That can either be satirical or bigoted. It depends on the intent of the performance, the execution of it and then the attitude of the intended audience. Not always easy to tease out what's going on for sure.

I have little interest in thinking seriously about these two, but sense the worst.

I listened to their old show "It's a Gay Thing D.C." a few times while on the treadmill at the gym and it was actually kind of boring. But they were talking about their new show "Swish Edition" that was soon to be launched. This was a few months ago. I will probably download an episode or two and see how it is.

I understand the discomfort that some gays and lesbians have regarding the flamboyant stereotype-reinforcing individuals in our community. However, each and every one of us owes a huge debt of gratitude to those very out and in-your-face drag queens and bull dykes who were the primary activists in June 1969 in the Stonewall riots.

We would probably still be cowering in the closet today if it weren't for those drag queens and bull dykes who had been pushed one too many times by the homophobes -- and who stood up for all our rights and fought back.

Do read Androphilia A Manifesto, Rejecting the Gay Identity and Reclaiming Masculinity.

I think you'll love it.

I'd prefer if your comments were written in Greek, or any other language I can't read.

In concession, I agreed with your earlier comments. There is nothing worse than a flaming, hypocritical closet case, except perhaps the self-loathing closet case who wants everyone else to suffer with them by enacting homophobic laws (if they are one of those gay arch-republicans) or preaching homophobic hate (if they are one of those charismatic preachers who have gay flings on the side.)

Now I can't decide which is worst.

I was thinking more of people like Liberace, Sean Hayes and Ricky Martin. Men who are obviously gay, yet steadfastly denied it for years, or refused to acknowledge the obvious.

Sean Hayes denied being gay? I thought he was publicly out right from season one of Will and Grace.

For years he refused to confirm or deny the obvious. Finally, he said he didn't have to confirm or deny it because he said "I was never in".

I never watched the show. I couldn't stand the characters.

I do think that "FRASIER" is the BEST-WRITTEN and FUNNIEST sitcom in history ("The Simpsons" is obviously a close second). There are 2 openly gay actors on "FRASIER" and they often have gay actors as guest stars (such as Nathan Lane and John Glover), and frequently have gay jokes.

Yeah except Frazier is a complete douche and anyone who likes that show is untrustworthy. Will And Grace on the other hand was an incredibly well written, witty, and hysterical sitcom.

I couldn't stand the characters nor some of the actors, ESPECIALLY that actress with that that INCREDIBLY ANNOYING voice. That's why I can't stand Fran Drescher. Her voice is just AWFUL too.(And she was married to a gay man for 20 years).

Speaking of Frasier, they did 2 crossovers onto "The Simpsons". Did you see the Simpson's episode "The Brother From Another Series" ? ROFL ! Do you get the "double joke" in the title ?
