On the advice of some very smart friends, I have decided to try to get a gig as a sex and/or advice columnist for a gay magazine.
The problem is that the best way to do this seems to be to submit sample columns to gay magazines. The only thing I have that in any way resembles a sample column is this post about the pronunciation of Ayn Rand’s name; while I’m pleased with the way it came out, and while Ayn Rand has developed, by some unfortunate quirk of fate, a large following among the gay population–the same quirk of fate, one assumes, that allowed Jodie Foster to make Contact–I’m not sure how likely that post alone is to get me a job at The Advocate.
So here’s the deal: if you have any questions about any subject on which you would like my opinion, whether you’re gay or not, please e-mail me and ask me. I can’t promise that I’ll post the question and my reply, but, given the series of unmitigated and self-inflicted disasters my life has comprised, perhaps you should consider yourself lucky if I don’t.
Then I’ll collect the best of the questions and answers, send them out, and hope for the best.
