Why I'm Gay


I've always wondered. Contemplated. Speculated. Thought. About why I'm gay. And now I know. I can blame is squarely on Blanche, Dorothy, Sophia and Rose. The Golden Girls made me gay:

  • Blanche’s promiscuity is a common model for the personal lives of today’s homosexuals. Most gay relationships last a week.
  • She taught our modern butt rompers to disparage everyone in their orbit. Dorothy taught the gays to speak very fast and have the most superior attitude possible.
  • For Florida, The Golden Girls completely ruined the reality of Miami’s masculine reputation. It was no longer a city of Scarface and Miami Vice.
Check out the article. You'll laugh....at the show, and at yourself. And at the writer. This is the kind of crap that 2010 Christianity in the United States is scaring people with. I've said it for many years -- if the church would actually look on the INside of its four walls, there would be serious trouble. Instead, they continue to choose to look OUTside....blaming others, casting attention outside to avoid the inward focus. I spent the vast majority of my life inside of the church. It hasn't been right for centuries. And it still isn't right today. But at least articles like this continue to give us giggles and laughs. As they should. And, do you suppose, just possibly, that it really was Blanche and Dorothy that made me gay?

The Golden Girls didn't make me gay, but they certainly were one of the pleasures of my early adulthood in the 80s.

Oh and you look adorable and cuddly in your new header pic!

? Who was making people gay before Blanche and Dorothy? The Lone Ranger? He did wear awfully tight pants...

If the exception proves the rule, then...
I never watched the Golden Girls, so they did not make me gay!
...
However, ...
my mother watched it all the time! Could she have passed the Family gene onto me at age 40 or so? Would we dub that "ex vitrio"? :-D

Oh, indeed, Lewis! If the Church spent half the energy and time examining itself that it spends being fascinated with our ways, the world would be a much better place!

I didn't like the Golden Girls personally - so what happened to me then?!

My mum reckons there is something about being the 3rd son - not sure where she gets that from!

It's all Rose's fault.

Truth is, nobody knows what causes homosexuality. And those who say they know it, are wrong. Human sexuality is so complex with so many contributions factors - and it changes over time - much to the chagrin of both gay and straight people.

The wingnuttery really doesn't have any limits, does it? I think I was already gay when that show came out so .....
