Gay Activist Curbs Activism, Keeps Pen In Hand

We’ve got some bad news for you, readers. Tully Satre, the fagling homo-journo whose Advocate articles kept many of you foaming at the mouth, will be cutting back his activist duties as he moves into the adult years of his life. Tragic, we know.

The always self-righteous Satre explains:

I think a lot of people who did not necessarily agree with my views or way of doing things decided to start a rumor that I am an opportunist; willing to take any chance I can for the spotlight. I resent this statement both as an activist and an artist. In either venue I never was striving for the spotlight, but when it shined I wouldn’t turn it down but would rather use it in accordance with my plan to advance an organization or work of art. Regardless of this I decided it was important for me to “be a kid” and live out of that sort of spotlight as it was one which demanded constant maturity, responsibility, and wisdom which I lack at my young age.

As you can see, Satre’s pulling out all the stops – he cut his hair so that it can serve a “better cause,” whatever that means.

Never fear, however, Satre will keep on penning his column in The Advocate, including a piece on generational gaps in the queer community. We’re pins and needles!

    He is the Ms Manners of the Advocate. Like we need to listen to him and the Advocate on how we as inedividuals should deal with the death of
    Jerry Falwell.

    While I think he is as cute as Christy McNichol with his new “do”, I say good fucking riddance to
    bad fucking garbage.

    Yes, I do think he is nothing more than a gay Ann Coulter wannabe.

    I expect him to be the next President of the HRC.

    Let’s use this as an excuse to ignore all fledgling gay “artists,” and force them to get a job waiting on tables (or sucking “straight-acting” men’s cocks).

    Dear God, has there ever been a more smug, proselytizing brat in our midst? And I say that fully well aware that I’m as self-righteous a nelly as they come.

    Anyway, I love how he speaks of his youthful ignorance while continuing to look down his nose at the rest of the world. And kid? Eat a cookie. That collarbone could put someone’s eye out.

    Whatever else he may be, he isn’t a good writer.

    I’ve enjoyed Tully’s writings. He has more common sense about gay issues than the majority of you older queens. Stop being jealous because someone with a bright mind is getting spotlight and you aren’t. He’s cute, sexy and has a brain. How novel a concept in the “when’s the next White Party, where’s my poppers” gay community!

    Allstarecho, lots of people have bright minds and get the spotlight and I don’t, and I respect the hell out of many of them. Some of them even happen to be younger than me. (BTW, I’m 25. A queen nonetheless, but just sayin’.)

    Tully, on the other hand, I think is a pretentious, patronizing tool who uses the “I’m young and yet so wise” angle to talk down to his readers. There are people I fundamentally disagree with who at least don’t write like debate team stars who think they know more than the world, but this kid ain’t one of them. And it isn’t purely an age thing–or a gay thing–because John Stossel annoys me just as much.
