HottJoe saidI'm not often aroused by drag queens either. I'm a fan of drag culture though, and I even published a novel about a drag queen, "The Tragedy of Miss Geneva Flowers." I will ALWAYS militantly defend drag queens from being shit on, doesn't really matter who's doing the shitting. I enjoyed our previous conversations as well, but we hardly have to agree on everything. As for calling you a cunt, that was another poster. I simply agreed that you were being cunt-like. I don't think you should be offended by that. I've been called much worse, and it doesn't phase me all that much. We all have to choose our battles and defending femme men from homophobia has been one of my greatest causes and highest ideals. If you're on the wrong side of that debate, then I will be there again to argue my perspective, and I'm not trying to be PC about it. Putting me on ignore won't really make much of a difference, because I'm never talking to just one person on here anyway. I do like you, and I sincerely hope that they're no hard feelings. That's just where I stand.
As I already said, it is no crime that you are not often aroused by drag queens. Who among us fantasizes drag queens as we bring ourselves to orgasm? Christ, it would be like thoughts of your mother popping into your head just as you're about to pop. So we don't. It is that simple even if some fem would try to convince you that how we truly feel is both misguided and nothing but theory. Bullshit. It is real. Deal with it.
Those of us who don't bullshit ourselves are in touch with that because it is completely natural for gay people to not be aroused by drag as most of us seek out masculinity. Being turned on by femininity--also not a crime--is not being turned on by masculinity, however, and it is nonsense to say the two are blurred in a drag queen as they most certainly are not. If they were, you'd be just as turned on by a guy in drag as you would by a big biceps bottom. We are men who seek men, that's what makes us gay. Drag is about accepting yourself, not pretending to be what you are not. Drag says its okay for men to love men.
Critiquing what someone is trying to pass off as art and their theory behind it is not shitting on the subject of the so-called art. So your anger is misplaced and your expression of it when you are being rude sucks.
That you either crave or tolerate people treating you like shit and therefore accept it from your peers, I suppose, to fit in, is not my permission to you to treat me like shit. I don't follow such fashion. I could give a rat's ass about fitting in. Or hadn't you noticed?
And here's, not only where you prove my point, but where you and the others are completely offbase in your attack upon me: "defending femme men" as you say, "from homophobia", because the very premise of my critique as stated in my very first post had absofuckinglutely nothing to do with any kind of attack on femininity, homophobic-motivated (and fuck you for suggesting so) or otherwise. Rather, what I noted was that the self-promoting artist who said about his work that "Through the power of hair and makeup these men are able to completely transform themselves and find their female side while simultaneously showing their male side." is bullshit and instead I proposed my own theory during your attack upon me but which I had in mind all along, even if I was originally merely glib about it, that the male side is not maintained but is wiped away by applying makeup, even if only a partial. Because that's how our minds process that vision of a guy in a dress, regardless if he's wearing a jock. I'm saying that we no longer see the jock through the dress. The jock is not maintained and saying it so doesn't make it so. And that is the aspect of this so-called art which I'm calling bullshit.
As to the ignore thing, it makes a difference to me, regardless as to whether or not it makes no difference to you There's no reason in the world why I should let a rude person ruin my internet experience, as there are too many good and interesting guys here still to read.
I also like a lot of what I've read which you have to say, but I will cut out even someone I've long loved if they treat me like shit, even if the political correctness today is to be rude. So feel free to be as rude as you want. I simply will also feel free to filter what someone tries to subject me to as I require for my own sense of peace. You don't have to play by my rules. But most certainly neither must I play by yours. How about we compromise and simply play by our mother's rules. Did your mom treat people like shit? I've read you; I doubt it. All I'm saying is that if you can't play nice, I won't want to play with you. I'm not warning you that I'll put you on ignore as some sort of ego trip. I'm only telling you so that you know that I would at that point no longer be reading anything you might think that you might otherwise be saying to me.
I announce it as a matter of consideration to the other guy with no intention other than that. Anyway, no hard feelings towards you. I appreciate you not calling me (even if just by agreeing with another poster) a fucking cunt this time around and I appreciate also your taking the time to explore this issue. Peace.
