Some Grapes Just Don't Know When Not To Be Sour

For those who have not yet seen Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, it's, well, to speak in the protagonists' style, fabulous. Yet as pleasing as this show is (Wife has already rearranged our closet and sworn me away from pleated shorts), a number of journalist-quasi-pundits can't resist the urge to jump on the negative stereotype bandwagon.

I thought the bashing may have remained isolated to my Philadelphia Inquirer, until I read this post by Jane Finch, which references this article by Brent Bozell.

I wonder when did the media start getting upset by gay stereotypes? I guess they somehow managed to miss Barney Miller, All In The Family, Soap, Three's Company, Thirtysomething, Roseanne, The Simpsons, Melrose Place, NYPD Blue, Spin City, Ellen Degeneres, Sex And The City, Will & Grace and Queer As Folk.

I swear it's because those gay men are hugging straight men and straight men are hugging them back in a completely non-sexual way.

Boy and I know what you mean about pleated pants...Trinny and Susannah have cured me of that. How did we ever buy "oh the pleats hide a multitude of sins"?
