On Lilies: Sometimes It’s Hard To Be a Whore

23Jul08

In which The Gay Recluse retreats to the summer garden.

Remember that post we did on that stupid Nike ad?

Huge traffic whores that we are, we immediately sent it to Queerty and Towleroad, and they picked it up. And then JoeMyGod and Gawker did pieces, too!  And a bunch of other sites we never heard about. And then — zomg! — Radar called to interview us!

But guess what. A lot of the gays were upset that we criticized Nike.

They said we didn’t understand sports. (Ha! We wish that were true.) Or were too sensitive. Or too politically correct.

And a lot of other mean stuff that hurt our feelings. Lolz.

So we fought back and called them stupid, idiotic, self-loathing, feeble-minded losers. This was a lot of hard work!

But omg srsly, traffic was great! It was almost as good as that time we said Arthur C. Clarke was a huge queen.

But now we’re exhausted. Traffic whoring is tougher than it sounds!

To recuperate, we’re heading to the garden. The lilies are in bloom and the scent is intoxicating.

For a second we forget how much we hate everyone, and how much they hate us.

    See the lilies, how they do not toil. Was that Jesus who said that or Eckhart Tolle? I forget.

  2. What a tiring day! I prescribe Catullus XVI .

  3. If only because you should look up “catamite”.

  4. “We” don’t hate you. We like your sensibilities.

    The Nike ad was homophobic, and like most homophobes and homophobic things, also homo-erotic. It’s all part of the dance.

    John and Sa’mone

    PS Our lilies are in bloom, too, but it’s raining so freakin’ much, we can’t get out to enjoy them.

    Paraphrasing from the Blimp Project comments (7/21/08):

    “The lack of creative talent, celebration of the small-minded, and wasted space taken up by these unredeeming ads will inspire a lot of regressive, non-thinking.”

    It was good of you to speak up, but the “post-gay” world is tough. Sometimes it’s enough to make one hate everyone.
