What the hell is it about the world that makes the word ‘gay’ so intrinsically funny to people? Currently doing the rounds: Spiderman will make you gay. I’ve got very very mixed feelings about this. I don’t think it’s overtly homophobic, but then I’m pretty comfortable with being a poof. The more I look at it, the more I think that it’s the kind of thing that drives young teenage poofs further into the closet, prolonging years of misery and giving kids at school yet another way to be vile to each other. What do you think?
