    ....or, Another Thread Where We Massage Each Others Egos

    So a big problem for younger gay people is that we often lack positive role models. Fairy godfathers if you will. This person would appear in times of crisis, probably in a dress, inevitably in a poof of smoke and would wave their fairy wand/dispense advice/make a workout plan/fix your outfit as required.

    The question is: who would you want to be your fairy godfather? They don't have to be from RJ and they can be masculinized if you prefer.

    Here's my choices: (and Chewey_Delt's too...)

    Obscenewish: who challenges my way of thinking about my gay identity, my perspective of gay history and forces me to a more inclusive sense of Gay Morality.

    Fastprof: I read his post in the friends with exes thread and thought "Why can't I be that mature". Would that the world were as sane as he!

    (yes I know this is a rejuvenation of the heroes thread. But I don't think online identities can be heroic. And heroism is not a good thing!)

I dont know I dont know of many gay men I respect really. i know they are out there but I have never seen them or if I have dont know their names. But its funny both my gay role models are dead hahah
