When Straight Characters Play Gay to Save the Day

Fauxmosexuals are men who go straight-for-play, whether that play is heroism, punchlines, or getting some ass (from women). Hollywood writers have a history of turning straight characters gay on sitcoms and terrible movies, or whenever there needs to be a terrible joke about maxi pads.

      i didn’t mind chuck + larry; i just thought the original aussie film (strange bedfellows) was better.

      also, “straight-for-play”? was that a typo?

      This is a sign of how bad things have gotten for gay and bisexual men. If the best Hollywood can do is show us as punch-lines or phonies, what hope is there for us? Hollywood is so fucking retarded, it’s not funny.

      I partly blame the GLBT community in America for failing to criticize Hollywood homophobia. You’ve been sucked into this idea that Hollywood is on our side when it clearly isn’t.

      Why is “cock” a bleepable word? Do they have determine if they are talking about penises or roosters?

      @TonyD: I’m Asian and gay. That’s triple fucked. The closest Asians being cool in Television are probably George Takei and Ken Jeong.
