N.B.: Another old entry I somehow managed not to post.
From an article in yesterday’s Times about a controversial Egyptian movie:
When are people going to stop saying “happened to be gay”?
“An affluent, dashing, Francophone newspaper editor who takes it in the ass, something I find distasteful and you do too, but since you and I are men of the world I’m going to mention it in the most off-hand way possible, to indicate that my opinions are in the right place.”
Nobody says “happened to be black,” right?
I mean, it’s not as bad as admitted, but come on, folks.
