I can't remember reading anything that Sullivan wrote that I agreed with, but I've never felt compelled to read anything of his at all. I don't feel as though I must keep up with his proxy for gay, or conservative for that matter, opinion.
So it was with unexpected pleasure that I found his essay on 'bears' while traipsing through Salon. For what it's worth I'm glad to know that I'm not the only one who thinks 'Queer Eye' is an out of place waste of space. As if I don't know how to dress myself. But aside from dissing those he refers to as the slightly offensive feminized man, it's comforting to know something familiar and respectable about some of these guys whom every fundamentalist and his mama are trying to boot from the community of marrieds. I like bears. I like their attitude.
