COMMENTS: Beenie Man, Thruples, Gore Vidal’s Legacy And More

Time for the Queerty Week in Comments, with the most compelling, thought-provoking or just downright bitchy comments that came directly from you, the readers!

“A great man has been lost. Not just a tireless voice for the LGBT community, Gore Vidal was a tireless voice for atheists, humanists and rationalists. During his last years he was the honorary president of the American Humanist Association. He was among the last of America’s great intellectuals and it is a sad day indeed that he is dead. His accomplishments and his lifelong goals, hopefully, will not merely be resigned to history. I hope his life’s work is carried forward, for it remains relevant to the U.S. and the world at large, considering the current climate of the world politically and religiously in regards to LGBT and atheist people.”

“Several years back she cheated on her Jesus-freak husband (he’s on General Hosptial) and had to do a big mea culpa. Feel free to shove this back in her face (free speech and all). Also, she’s a terribly wooden actress.”

“To paraphrase Gore Vidal, if you want a long happy relationship with a partner, don’t have sex.Check back with these guy in 5 years. It will be long over.”

“It cracks me up that gay men are always so concerned with ‘rehabilitating’ their haters and giving them so many chances to “apologize.”

Some people are just bad apples and should be dealt with as such, but, of course, the Advocate brand of milquetoast journalism would disagree.”

“I went to college in Cape [Girardeau], got a good job there, had friends and family close by. But I got the hell out of there when I came out. It’s so ass-backwards and small-minded, there’s no way a gay couple could live there without being taunted or publicly ridiculed. And it’s a really boring town, which is why there are so many methheads and alcoholics— there’s nothing else to do!”

    Gore Vidal was not fond of the “gay” label, believing and stating instead, correctly, that we all are bisexual even if he did recognize and admit he was more homosexual, by far favoring men. He also enjoyed sex with numerous, in fact prodigious numbers of people and joked that aside from his one true idealized love from school days, the success of his greatest longtime relationship was that sex was not involved.?However he identified himself publicly, he certainly did not put up with the “lgtb” nonsense and never accepted putting lesbians before gay men for some ridiculous guilt trip about “invisibility” which he said was disproved on a historical and daily basis. The fact that lesbians were not abused or addressed by the laws and legal statutes aimed against homosexuality has been turned on its head by those who claim to feel so left out that they now must come first–curiously, just as ladies have been conditioned to believe in the straight world. He joked that lesbianism might have been invented for the erotic thrill of straight men, which is exactly why they are so much more acceptable and not “invisible.” Like many of us he saw pc “lgbt” as a spin-backed power-grab, and agreed with me that homosexual men and lesbians are two very distinct communities which share a lot of common interests and goals, should or could be friends, but that they were intrinsically very different, and that there was no reason to let the lesser one dominate the other, especially when historically, financially, numerically , even alphabetically and every other which way, gay men are in the forefront. He also pointedly asked how many men did you ever see heading up a women’s organization, yet women demand parity in almost every gay organization and even take over their administrations. Actually, Gore Vidal was more than a great gay man, he was one of those great men whose sense of self and style, whose intellectual powers, perceptions, creativity, and whose proven greatness made his mark everywhere he went, and by his life forwarded the image and stature potential for all gay men.
