Over at The Other Sebastian’s. I’ve said before I don’t agree with Clayton on this stuff. I agree that the people in those pictures are weird (Not work safe, or really safe anywhere. Don’t say I didn’t warn you), and that’s definitely not my kind of fair, but other than thinking they are a few dune buggies, an autogyro, and a big tanker trunk away from making a pretty good movie, it’s not something I’m liable to get too worked up over. I kind of expect San Francisco to be creepy at this point.
But either way, do we know that the majority of the gay community condones this stuff? None of the gay people I know would be caught dead at something like this. I would be wary of painting an entire group of people with so large a brush, lest people do the same to us. I think most gay people are no more S&M freaks than gun owners are government hating militia types.
UPDATE: For the record, if people are into that stuff, I have no problem. By the same token, I don’t really care of a bunch of guys want to get dressed up in fatigues and go play army. Not my kind of thing, but I support people’s right to do either.
