    Thanks for sharing that link. I really enjoyed reading it, and will read it again. It's a lot to process, but resonates on so many frequencies with my own thinking.

    Interesting article.

    I particularly enjoyed the portion of "hot dumb" - although he's stating the obvious, it's nice to point out - though gays and straights will always tend to continue conversation with hot but dumb.

    The author was quite aware that he was jaded in some sense (and still is to an extent) and he comfortably addressed the common gay issues of veiled racism and the ever present rudeness.

    I'm not sure about many of you, but if I receive a message from someone, I'm certain to respond, just as I would in real life. We've come to a point where it's quite easy to reject each other and say things to each other that we normally would not... after all, you're in the simple comfort of your own home.

    We've turned ourselves into sex-based commodities, which isn't necessarily bad, but once you've packaged yourself as a commodity you're just that, a commodity.
