On To Karl Ove Knausgård, Re: Your Tortured Feelings for the Gays

@barnhouse Let me rephrase that, then: defending straight white male authors against being called on their oppressive behavior by the people who are hurt by it. Defending the status quo.

On To Karl Ove Knausgård, Re: Your Tortured Feelings for the Gays

@barnhouse You seem to be deeply invested in defending straight white male authors wherever they are found. I am not basing that view solely on this comment thread; I keep reading-- and wanting to like-- your work, because you are an excellent writer, and then finding myself confronted with this fact.

@barnhouse Yes, Matthew is forbidding you. Because criticism is the same as censorship. That's a ridiculous false dichotomy.

On Gays Tear "Mad Men" Apart, Put It Back Together

So I visited a friend last night who lives in Brooklyn, and she took me to see the feral parrots. And I noticed that they were blue and green and immediately thought "what would Tom and Lorenzo say about this?" I look forward to their Mad Style posts nearly as much as the show itself.
