    Slate.com contributor Simon Doonan interviewed about his new book Gay Men Don't Get Fat which -- like its 30-year predecessor Real Men Don't Eat Quiche -- must be taken with liberal helpings of sodium (metaphorical of course).

    Then all those over weight men I have seen at the clubs must of been married bisexual men, or lesbians.

    “There’s a lethal amount of fat in guacamole,” he went on. “A friend of mine was just going off to Mexico, and I said to her: ‘If you get kidnapped, remember to tell your kidnappers: no guacamole. You cannot be in a confined space ingesting guacamole. You’ll become so enormous.’ ”

    haters gonna hate


    I love guacamole.

    One of the tongue-in-cheek propositions of Mr. Doonan’s new book, “Gay Men Don’t Get Fat” (Blue Rider Press, $24.95), is that the vast range of the world’s culinary options can be boiled down to two core categories: gay food and straight food. Seeking out a balanced diet of both is the savviest way to stay svelte. Think of it, if you must, as bisexual eating.

    “Mix it up,” he said. “Gay men don’t stay trim because they only eat gay food. I don’t live on macarons and lettuce.”

    “It’s actually a very good mixture of gay and straight,” he said, as he surveyed the Knickerbocker’s menu. “Just the words ‘baby arugula salad’ — you know you have some gay options. But then it’s balanced out with some real classics. We have Black Angus meatloaf — that’s the Burt Reynolds of foods.”

    And balance, he counseled, was key. A gentleman might succumb to meatloaf, sure, but instead of pairing it with mashed potatoes, he should ask for a salad as a substitute. “Because the Black Angus meatloaf, that’s a whole lot of hetero to digest,” he said.

    Nevertheless, there are times when his thoughts on the sexual orientation of food can be unexpectedly eye-opening. Straight food, according to the Doonan rubric, tends to be leaden, full of protein, thick with fat. Consider the grub he grew up with in England.

    “British food used to be so straight when I was a kid,” he said. “Haggis. Horrible stews. Boiled greens that were gray. Now they’ve gayed it up, and British food is incredible.”

    The way he sees it, gay food is lighter and brighter. It feels art-directed, not just tossed together and deep-fried, with an attention to aesthetic and dietary detail.

    “Gay foods are more decorative; they’re more frivolous,” he said. “The macaron craze is the ne plus ultra of gay fooderie. I can’t believe any red-blooded straight guy can even walk into a macaron shop. If you wanted to ruin a politician’s career, just publish a picture of him shopping for macarons.”

    Meanwhile, Mr. Doonan freely uses “lesbian” to describe certain earthy, healthful foods.

    “Organic olive oil, thick porridge, heaping helpings of wheat germ,” he said. “A crusty loaf of whole-grain bread is both ferociously lesbian and wildly heterosexual.”

    The author clearly missed the whole thread about bears, bulls, and chasers, to say nothing of all the "no fats, no fems" demands in personal ads.

    I think it's unlikely for gay men to get fat for 2 reasons.

    1. Sucking cock while swallowing cumm. Depending on the time can contain high sodium. That makes you sweat and, burn off weight.

    2. Tend to have alot off sex. Wich is a great exercize for the body.

    The observation I made last night is gay men that do get fat just become drag queens or as I call them "Parade Floats." Most people just get suicidal. Gays just put on make up and a dress.

    Ick....

    OMG, the only way that book sells is if cretins buy into it. I wouldn't give it to my worst enemy. That kind of book only flies in America. Anywhere else in the world, you wouldn't get enough of a reader base to make a profit out of it.

    I suppose it can be funny to some. Having read that little excerpt, it's tripe branded as humour.
