A little beastie named Tom Schaller, presumtively a pee-wog given his blog address, has a certain misperception about fags. No, a number. A flock. A murder of misconceptions. The post is rather too vile to quote verbatim, but it distills easily:
I'm, like, totally straight. Me and my buds make fun of fags. Well really we just call each other fags. Cuz who wants to be a fag? That dude from Queer Eye--totally a fag. Here are some gay football players and stuff. That Queer Eye dude, I would, like, totally kick his ass. But those sports guys could kick my ass. And that is why straight dudes are afraid of gay dudes in sports.Straight men, and I know some of you are reading this, allow me to explain: you are a sorry lot. Your bodies are flabby. You do not excercise enough. You drink too much beer. You are less likely to play sports than to sit on your widening asses and watch them on the teevee. Many--most--gay men fall into that category as well, but fuck all that happy-happy we're-all-really-the-same bullshit. What we're really talking about here--what Schaller is really talking about--is an institutionalized culture of drinking lager, eating nuts (such as it is), and yelling at the teevee, versus ain institutionalized gay culture of youth and body worship, 7-day-a-week gym visits, cardiac stamina and sexual athleticism.
Here's a factoid: Between 1938 and 1963, the Kinsey Institute interviewed over 5000 men for its studies in human sexuality. Among other things, they measured the men's penises using five separate measures to mitigate against the obvious difficulties of measuring something that, you know, changes size. On all five measures, it was fags in first. Yes, Tom Schaller, we have better abs and bigger dicks. In the Junior High marketplace of locker-room bigotry that you seem eager to trawl, I believe that means we win.
