Rest In Peace Willie Garson Gay Character from Sex in the City, Ryan Field Books

Rest In Pease Willie Garson Gay Character from Sex in the City

I've slammed the old TV show Sex in the City a few times for the way they portrayed gay men. In many cases they treated them as though they were pet poodles. And you only saw the strongest gay stereotypes. It's really interesting now to go back and watch reruns about how cheesy and tacky that show was altogether. I think it represents all the worst aspects of the 1990s without even trying too hard. 

With that said, whenever a gay man found a gay high profile character as Willie Garson did in Sex in the City. I was always the first to applaud him. We had no gay content back then, and no gay characters. And Willie did what he had to do, and he did it damn well. In fact, now when I watch the reruns he is one of the only characters that come off looking intelligent. And he was always genuine. Which is more than I can say about Cynthia Nixon who was a closeted lesbian at the time dating and having sex with men. But again, she did what she had to do, too. I guess she wasn't as brave as Ellen in the 90s.  

It wasn't an easy part for Willie to play this part either. 

"Most of the pressure I felt was to not be offensive," he said. "I didn't want to offend the community at all, and that was a really big concern of mine. To the point where I didn't even have HBO for the first three years, because I didn't want to see it, because I was so terrified of being offensive.

Here's more. I was never offended by him, not once. I understood what he was doing and I have known gay men who resembled his character in real life. The thing that always bother me about Sex in the City was the way those vapid straight white women of privilage always go away with so much. 

So I genuinely liked Will Garson, and I truly hope he will RIP. It's sad that he was so young. I think the entire show would have been so much better if they had focused more on the Willie Garson character and less on those 4 vapid women.

A Straight Guy 'Titillates' Effeminate Gay Men, Ryan Field Books

 A Straight Guy 'Titillates' Effeminate Gay Men

I think this falls under the category of Gay Baiting. They just don't realize it. It happens all the time, too. I've seen it all my life. The only thing unique about this is that he's so up front and honest about it. 

I'm a 26-year-old masculine straight guy who loves exploiting the fantasies so many gay men have about straight men. When a gay guy is into me because I look like his straight-masculine-jock dream, it's a power trip like no other.

Here's more. A lot of so-called straight male celebrities do this on a grand scale. Think Nick Jonas.

BLM Protestors Scream Anti-Gay Remarks, Ryan Field Books

 BLM Protestors Scream Anti-Gay Remarks

Apparently, there was an issue between a BLM protestor and a Guardian Angel in NYC, and it involved anti-gay slurs. 

But this is really one of those articles where you have to read the whole thing in order to fully get it. 

A Black Lives Matter protester was seen confronting a member of the Guardian Angels and making anti-gay remarks in New York City near a protest over three tourists who were arrested and charged last week following a fight regarding proof of vaccination. 


Here's the rest.

Joy Reid's Homophobic Commentary Revisited So We Never Ever Forget, Ryan Field Books

Joy Reid's Homophobic Commentary Revisited So We Never Ever Forget

MSNBC's Joy Reid started to trend again this week and I thought it was important to remind people that she was once in the middle of a homophobic controversy. With so many hypocrites out there, and so little support for anything LGBTQ, I think we need to revisit certain topics every so often so no one ever forgets. 

The homophobia happened in old blog posts and in Tweets. This is typical straight privilege. 

Tweets have resurfaced from 2010, before she was well known, in which she questions conservative commentator Ann Coulter's gender and calls Senator Lindsey Graham "Miss Lindsey".

Here's more.  What bothers me is that there seems to be a double standard for anyone who makes homophobic comments. They always get away with it, as if nothing ever happened. Alec Baldwin got away with it, and so did Joy Reid. Every day I see people get away with it. The least we can do is remind people that it happened, so they never, ever forget.

St. Johns County Students Yell Anti-Gay Slurs At Classmates, Ryan Field Books

 St. Johns County Students Yell Anti-Gay Slurs At Classmates

Here's another one of those homophobic stories from Florida. It seems to happen a great deal down there. 

A troubling series of videos posted to social media this week appears to show a group of students hurling hate speech at other students at a St. Johns County high school.

Here's the link for more. People were saying it was "scary" and "shocking" to hear the kind of slurs they were screaming. It was all recorded and you can see the video at the link.

Tammy Faye Bakker As a Gay Icon?, Ryan Field Books

Tammy Faye Bakker As a Gay Icon?

First, I always like to make the distinction that this does not include all gay men. I don't have icons. I don't like Judy Garland, Liza Minnelli, or Barbra Streisand. In fact, I don't even know WTF a gay icon is. I find the entire concept annoying. The whole idea of a gay icon is a stereotype that is just as bad as any stereotype with any other marginalized group. And I wish they would stop doing it. 

With that said, they are now claiming that Tammy Faye Bakker was a so-called "gay icon." 

And I'm sure she was with some gay men. And good for them. BUT not ALL gay men. 

With her wildly over-the-top makeup and garish animal-print ensembles, a penchant for singing Christian disco anthems despite her lack of voice training, and a sense of childlike wonder with which she preached her gospel, she made for compelling TV viewing.

Here's more. This is also a promotion for a new movie about the life of Tammy Faye Bakker.

Simu Liu Allegedly Compares Being Gay to Pedophilia, Ryan Field Books

 Simu Liu Allegedly Compares Being Gay to Pedophilia

For those who don't know, Simu Liu is that actor who played in the TV show Kim's Convenience and he gained most of his notoriety there. I think Kim's Convenience is still on Netflix. Overall, the show is good.  But it was every other actor on the show that made it good, not Simu Liu. 

There were some great actors on Kim's Convenience, but Simu Liu was not one of them. He basically got by with his looks and his body, but he couldn't act if his life depended on it. And yet he's now in a huge feature film that's one of those silly action adventure superhero affairs, and once again he's getting by with his looks and his body. It takes no acting skills for this. 

Recently, he's made the news for old Reddit posts he made where he compared, allegedly, being gay to pedophilia. 

Marvel's newest action hero actor, Simu Liu, allegedly once compared being a pedophile to being gay -- which he likened to a genetic mutation and an illness ... and something he was sympathetic toward.

Here's more. Who knows? He doesn't seem like the sharpest tack. 

He does defend himself, though. If you could call it that. Trust me, this is rich. 

'DISCLAIMER: If you dig back far enough, I'm sure you'll find a more immature version of me who gave in to anger and hate,' he continued. 'It doesn't make me a hypocrite; it makes me a human being. Mentalities evolve. We shift and we grow. And I want us all to grow the right way.'

But see, here's the thing that the big dumb idiot doesn't understand. It makes him a GD douche. Not everyone did things like this. I never did those things. Millions of people out there in the world didn't do those things. So what he posted is a reflection on HIS character, and no one else's. And don't blame Twitter for this one. This time Twitter just told the truth.
