I watched a program about the Stonewall riots a few nights ago, it was quite interesting. Those people had real courage - unlike the preening narcissist that is the typical modern day gay celebrity.

Especially when compared to modest, humble straight celebrities, like Kim Kardashian or Kanye West.

Like? And who's the typical straight celebrity?

You've become a caricature.

The Irish Mel Gibson, ladies and gentlemen. I just assume he's half in the bag when he makes posts like that one

So I post about my admiration for the Stonewall protestors and also mention in passing that I find some modern day gay celebrities narcisstic and all of a sudden I'm the Irish Mel Gibson, a caricature. Jesus, gay people themselves - outside of this absurdly uber-PC forum at least - frequently criticise the narcissism of some gay public figures and the "scene" that surrounds them, precisely because it leads to unfair stereotypes.

How about Perez Hilton for a start. Surely it cannot be denied that he has a preening and narcisstic persona. Travolta too - he's always struck me as very self-absorbed.

Can I ask why the distinction was made in the first place? Why are we differentiating between gay and straight people? There are narcissistic people of all stripes, particularly celebrities. Nothing new there.

Because his whole world view is structured around categorizing people. Otherwise it would be too complicated to come to any conclusions about anything

Why even bring celebrity into it?

The Stonewall demonstrators were fighting for gay people to be able to live their lives freely, and that includes everyone from mild-mannered non-celebrities, all the way up to obnoxious assholes like Perez Hilton.

It's the left that are always categorising people, because of their obsession with identity/gender politics.

Yep, there's self-absorbed people out there. In other news, water is wet.

I might also add that we don't need the Stonewall situation as much today because homosexuality is becoming more and more accepted in today's world. Back in the days of Stonewall just saying you were gay was a big deal. That was in the days when homosexuality was still considered a mental illness. The attitudes have drastically changed since then, therefore, so has the means of fighting.
