Look at the advert for this great new magazine. It’s called VIP (Very Irritating Pricks?) and it’s for men. Real ones. None of your pansy old gay ones. Real ones, YOUHEARMEFUCKINGFAGGOTS!
Get it? Village People (gay band, and never mind that most of them were straight) or Police (boringly straight). Which is it to be?
The other ad goes ‘Brokeback Mountain OR Once Upon a Time in the West’. Then the tag: VIP – Think like a man. And don’t read Details or it’ll turn you. Because, in case you didn’t realise, gay men are not actual men. They are facsimiles. Creatures from another planet. Oh, which brings us to that thing Kylie once said to us…First, here’s another great advert for that ‘Think like a man’ magazine…
And now the Kylie thing: having asked her about the bisexual rumours around both of her recentish boyfriends (this was when she was still going out with Olivier), she replied, ‘Oh, no Olivier’s ALL man.’
Oh. Does that mean gay men and bisexuals are somehow part man/part something else then? Or were we being over-sensitive? Seems a prattish thing for a career gay icon to come out with to us.
