This was initially posted on another forum I visit where I tend to be a bit more... vitriolic. A more normal blog entry resides below this one and was posted less than half an hour prior.
An openly gay fashion designer. This isn't starting out well. Then we get this lovely bit of information he ..."groped Scarlett Johansson's breast..." and "asked Eva Longoria about her pubic hair."
God, for every step forward in terms of breaking stereotypes and fitting in with the hets, we have to deal with asses like this who make the rest of us look like losers of the highest degree. Of course, right after the tagline, the AP has to inform its readers that he's gay (not that we couldn't tell from his looks or choice of occupation) So, no matter how educated every mind in America that looks at that is going to have a little bit of info added onto what gays are like in America...
To say nothing of the fact he's downright rude. And he's getting away with being an ass because he's gay. Damnit, being gay doesn't give you a license to do whatever the f**K you want. It's just a sexual preference. Period.
Propagators of the stereotype like him do more harm to gays in America than an army of jerry falwells, or robertson's or any homophobic nutjob ever could. Though shooting is extreme (the title was sarcasm folks), I think somebody needs to slap some sense into people like him.
