"Keep Kicking at the Darkness Till it Bleeds Daylight." - Bruce Cockburn
What's your comment on women who marry gay men? Are they the ones with the beards? Don't be afraid to "offend"; those who need to pretend to be offended will look for opportunities for this with all the intensity of an heavy drinker looking for old, tucked away bottles of rye in their basements.
"Beard" is a slang term for a woman whom a gay man goes out with or marries in order to maintain the facade that he is straight.I had an idea for a joke, but then I realized that any joke I told would wind up being "the [celebrity name]. This beard consists of [celebrity's wife's name]."That seems to me a little mean-spirited; I don't think that spreading rumors that so-an-so is gay is really nice.
Suppose that the "someone" really is gay? How is telling the truth "not really nice"?
If he isn't really gay, it's not nice (and if the only basis for speculating is rumor, there is a good chance that he isn't), and if he is gay but wants to keep the fact private, it's not nice to try to force his private life into the public.
Thanks for the link to us in your blogroll. I linked back to you.
