Huh?

“Pierce Brosnan has landed the title of top gay icon – in the over-50 category. The former Bond star beat off competition from Bruce Willis and Richard Gere to land the crown with 33% of the vote. Willis came second in the poll, conducted by dating website Gay-parship, with 24% and Gere was third with 14%. Dame Helen Mirren topped the Lesbian Icon poll, with Susan Sarandon and Meryl Streep in second and third place, respectively.” [The Sun]

      That is kind of surprising … but I think I agree with it!

      Pierce Brosnan the homophobe? The guy that ruined the film “The Matador” because he refused to play a bi-sexual having a sexual affair with a married man (played by Greg Kinnear). It turned a wonderful screenplay into a confusing and overblown movie.

      Yeah thats a real ‘Gay Icon”

      What is a “Gay Icon” sort of implies that he’s dead.

      I think Helen Mirren’s a bigger gay icon than Brosnan. Sh!t, she’s The Queen!

      Um, no Ian McKellan? Elton John? Or can you not be gay AND a gay icon?

      Why are all three of the “gay icons” very bad actors and the three “lesbian icons” stellar?

      Not one of them can hold a candle to Sean Connery. Or perhaps there was an over 60 catagory?

      Which gays did they talk to to get the nominees?? Old, befuddled ones with little or no eye for acting talent or gay relevance? (except, of course, for La Mirren, who is wonderful in all her ways). This sounds like a Readers Digest list of Ubergays.

      1) The link is to the Sun, which is no better than a tabloid.

      2) They don’t say, but judging by the percentages, it sounds like people only had a few choices.

      3) Men, gay or straight, think with their dicks.

      4) Helen Mirren is a goddess, talented, smart and still gorgeous.

      Pierce Brosnan? Really? That’s disappointing.

      I always thought ol’ Brucey was gay. Just look at how dreamy he is when he speaks softly for the camera. Plus, he has cross-dresser eyes. I think Ashton Kutcher is in on it too. I would like to see a video of the two of them going at it.
