Queerty Wish List: James Kirchick

To celebrate the holidays, Queerty is playing Santa to all your favorite folks and asking what they want under the tree/ next to the menorah/ beside the Saturnalia bonfire this year, no Ms. America answers allowed.

James Kirchick is the assistant editor of The New Republic and a frequent contributor to the Los Angeles Times and The Wall Street Journal and The Advocate, but you know him as the blogosphere’s gay that everyone loves to hate–after Sully, that is.

Whether he’s endorsing John McCain in The Advocate, calling the boycott of Republican-owned Manhunt a “temper tantrum” or  examining the political clout of the Mormon Church, Kirchick always manages to get a reaction. And while we don’t agree with much of what he says, I think by now it’s obvious that we believe in the value of questioning the common wisdom, which is something James, love him or hate him, is an expert at.

What to get the gay community’s right-leaning l’enfant terrible for the holidays? Find out after the jump.

“Is it just me or have leather weekend bags become the new tiny dogs for gay men? Leather duffles by Tommy Hilfiger, Fossil and other design companies are the necessary homosexual accessory, like Diesel Jeans were 7 years ago and pervy mustaches before that. Every cute, twenty-something ‘mo on the Amtrak or at Penn Station is carrying one these days; it’s as identifying a symbol of one’s being a friend of Dorothy as a Chihuahua in Chelsea. These , by Fossil in particular, are quite nice. Not only is this versatile luggage extremely convenient for a quick weekend getaway to visit the boyfriend, it also works as a gym bag. Buy me one and maybe I’ll start going there more frequently”
