well, the focus on one man (Putin) throughout Sochi has been reminiscent of an earlier Olympic Games ...

I still wonder if Putin's actions with the Dutch team were staged or not.


At the start of the olympics, he showed up at our Dutch Heineken House and shook hands with a female ice skater, Sanne van Kerkhof.

Yesterday, bunch of days later, he congratulated Ireen Wust with her gold medal by giving her a hug in the same House.


Makes me wonder if he knows those two used to be in a relationship together. Since it is fairly common knowledge here, but still. It would be incredibly ironic. Or hypocritical if he did indeed know.

hard to say -- maybe it's just because the Dutch WIN ALL THE SPEEDSKATING MEDALS.

I'm sure not every gay man wants to be with a flamboyant person. Which is not to say that every gay man is flamboyant, which is why I can kind of understand making the distinction in a personals ad.

So yeah, I think my question is, is it the taste that's offensive, or the phrase?
It depends upon how you approach it. When a gay guy describes himself as "straight acting" it implies there's something wrong with being gay or the way gay people act so much to a point where they feel the necessity to "act" a certain way. And lots of gay guys feel the necessity to describe themselves as "straight acting" so much as to say "I'm not like them."

Of course it gets reworded a lot. Perhaps one doesn't like a stereotype. That's totally okay. Nobody said "you have to be attracted to everything, gay male." It really depends upon your choice of words though. Often the choice of words is "straight acting" though, and that's absolutely internalized homophobia.

E:And now I see Irvine said pretty much the exact same thing.

Homophobia is misogyny, in that straight men are afraid of being treated by other men the way that they treat women.

It's actually a big relief for me to hear other people say this, like maybe the crazy isn't all in my head.
