      I’m sure the OMM of the gay world, JimBryant is clutching his pearls over every single one of these items. He’s just ever so pissed about people associating homosexuality with effeminacy. His hyper butch persona is undermined by such connotations. As we all know, you’re only as masculine as everyone else believes you to be.

      Duh. That’s why I love messing with him and goading him on. Just to make the biggest fool out of himself that he can.

      I confess that I kinda liked the GayAway ‘product’.

      I mean, look at the hair on the picture of the inventor/doctor/promoter/huckster. I cannot imagine a straight man making this packaging. Except maybe Al Jaffee.

      But then, I must confess to having been an avid fan of Mad Magazine, and yes, even Cracked when I was a kid.*

      And, really, who couldn’t use a backup GayDar with a fresh battery when the bar light is just a little too dim and the cigarette smoke is a bit too thick?

      And what kind of person is going to purchase, and then go around in public (or even in their bedroom) using an electrical device that shouts “Hey, Mary!!!” on command? Think about it.

      * And also much, much, later. But then, Al Jaffee is funny even today.

      I don’t like it myself though I wouldn’t protest over it. 20th century boomer gag gifts are so corny anyway.

      I really hate stuff like this. We’re one of the only acceptable minorities to pick on in this particular way. Just think if the “gay” in all of these products was replaced….

      “Instant Ebonic Accent”
      “Jew Detector”
      “Inflatable Black Friend”
      A t-shirt that says “Heey! You’re Ghetto”
      “Chinese Sound Machine: All the words with R’s they can’t pronounce”

      If it weren’t gay, it would all be outrageously inappropriate and unthinkable. But because people are so comfortable pigeonholing us, so comfortable spotting us out and identifying us to make us the “other”…it’s perfectly acceptable.

      It’s totally offensive.

      I’d pay GOOD money for a bottle of ‘Str8 accent’ I love being gay- but I’ve had the lisp since I was 13- bullied all through school without being out- they heard it/knew.

      “What the hell is a gay accent, exactly?”

      C’mon. We all know what a ‘gay accent’ is.

      Now there’s nothing wrong with having a gay accent – and straight people are now realizing that most gay men don’t speak that way – but let’s not pretend it isn’t a thing that exists.
