GSSMs: … as discussed with Jako.
Jako (01:22 PM): got a sec?
george (01:29 PM): I think so.
Jako (01:30 PM): just wondering if you blogged anything about that SF Gate article Ernie and Anil linked
george (01:31 PM): I didn’t. I read it after coming back from Pride. Saw the paper on a BART train, and flipped through it right before napping on the couch.
Jako (01:31 PM): really cool article – was hoping to get your take
george (01:34 PM): Well, GSSMs are what Anil and Peterme had on their minds a couple of years ago.
george (01:34 PM): At least, that’s how Anil explained it to me.
george (01:35 PM): In a way, I felt that straight people appropriating elements and markers of gay culture was sort of bogus.
george (01:35 PM): I mean, support the culture, sure
george (01:35 PM): but it didn’t seem too far removed from white people feeling Tupac Shakur’s pain, as the article mentioned.
george (01:35 PM): Then my wife told me to pull my head out of my ass
Jako (01:36 PM): true, but some straight folks (on both sides of the gender fence) just act GAY as a matter of course…
george (01:36 PM): and said that straight people who fcuk with borders and boundaries and expectations are cool
george (01:37 PM): and I shouldn’t hate on them because it’s not always about stealing someone else’s cool
george (01:37 PM): and since the more confused people are about gender boundaries, the less likely it is that they’ll just come out (ahem) and say stupid stuff and act stupidly.
Jako (01:38 PM): your wife’s got it right
george (01:38 PM): So I asked her when was the last time she had her gaydar checked.
george (01:38 PM): She stuck her tongue out at me.
Jako (01:38 PM): ha!
george (01:38 PM): And we went out to the bookstore, came back home and watched this documentary on FTM trannies on PBS.
