!! OMG, how tragic: HomoShame !!
I have pretty mixed feelings about this new site called HOMOSHAME, which is devoted to some of the more tragic/ridiculous members of our community. It's not particularly meanspirited or anything; it's basically just Look at that F*cking Hipster for gays, and on one hand it's like, well why shouldn't we have our own, right? I'm just not sure it's making fun of the right people.
Yes, I loled a bunch of times looking throught the pictures, but at the same time-- is it really the tragic, ridiculous or aggressively faggy members of our community who need to be called out!? I actually think there are too few of these people these days! I can definitely say that I far prefer them to the supercilious fashion bitches standing in corners in their prissy scarves and moustaches or the popped collar assimilationists whose highest aspiration is to buff over any type of gay difference. (And whose other highest aspiration is to be able to take an entire traffic cone up the ass, but nothing wrong with that!)
The point is that most of the guys at HomoShame like they're having fun, and it's actually kind of refreshing to see people who aren't ashamed of themselves these days. Why shame them? There are plenty of other better people to shame!
My ambivalence aside, the site is pretty f*ckin funny, so check it out and make up your own mind.
Thanks to H for the tip.
