Wednesday Big Blue Smurf Blogging: Cover your keyboard with plastic sheeting and duct tape before reading edition
Posted by Jill | 5:22 AM
The other day I was reading this post at Jezebel about so-called "purity balls" and one of the fathers in the piece set of loud alarms and screeching sirens in my own personal gaydar. (If you go over there, you'll see the one I'm talking about.) If I do say so myself, I have pretty good gaydar for a straight person. I'm not about outing, though, mostly because there are people who are so much better at it (and far more influential) than I am. But then there are those who transcend sexual orientation, who manage to get the point across without ever using the word "closet."

I bring you, Gen. J.C. Christian, Patriot.

The purity ball post at Jezebel is really good. Thanks for the link. I enjoyed reading the comments, especially liked Dagneymedea's comments (paraphrase) that the fairy tale thing is just that... fiction.

Tingling gaydar indeed. Us penguins have pretty good gaydars, perhaps because there's so many gay penguins out there, and my gaydar ain't tinglin' about Andy boy, it's outright jumpin' up and down and pointing and screaming "Gay! Gay! Gay!". Sweaty wrestlin' matches with other guys appear in Andy boy's future...
