Just how queer are those queers, anyway?

"Are gays more like straight men than we think?" -- So asks ABC, which raises the question, "Who, exactly, is doing the thinking?" Because, you see, I don't actually tend to ruminate on how alike or unlike gay and straight men are at all, and I get the feeling that people who do, and spend their time penning exhausting articles about the subject, probably can't think about a gay man without picturing Divine. So who's doing the thinking clearly makes a difference.

And when it's the inimitable Paul the Spud doing the thinking, well, what you get is one of the most brilliant smackdowns you could ever hope to read.
