Calling Ace and Allah
The wardrobe from "Brokeback Mountain", your favorite movie of all time, is now on sale on ebay. I want to see Allah in Ennis's riding gloves and Jack's cowboy boots and Ace in Ennis's gander coat and Jack's smithbilt hat. Mmmmmmmm, baby.

I want to see Allah in Ennis's riding gloves and Jack's cowboy boots . . .
You mean gloves and boots and nothing else?
The thought of Ace in a pair of rhinestone pumps gets me hot.
Allah makes such a big deal about his appearance. If he looks like Jeremy Piven, why the heck is he complaining? Piven is not bad-looking.
Whoa, whoa, since when does Allah look like Jeremy Piven?
I dunno, Karol, it's not every guy who can bring off cowboy boots. You'd better post a picture so we can decide.
Yes, dress your straight friends up in gay clothes and laugh at them. It could be just like the juvenile homophobic jokes you loved in high school. How mature and thoughtful a way to entice this demographic of the voting public, especially in New York where we have no gays. Why not just put Dorian in a dress and laugh at him? That'd be a HOOT (and I think he’d like it).
Now, the smarter move is to realize how well gay icons sell to the gay audience, and for political action. Look at these prices! $7000 for a jacket! Wow. Beautifully, it all goes to Human Rights Campaign, which lobbies for gay civil rights. Woo wee! You see that? Yes, make fun of them, discredit them and make them realize there is no love on the right. None. Just jokes. Keep pushing all that expendable income to the other side while repressing (poking fun) at those in your party who are gay and putting them in the back of the bus. Of course, I hope the HRC just keeps lobbying and getting the vote out for the other side. After all, a political subset that has no need for many social entitlements straights take for granted, usually has a higher education and median income and has every motivation in the world to be fiscally conservative should be Democrats, no? Imagine what money we could throw into political charity auctions if we weren’t paying for public school for “breeder’s” children.
Keep laughing, Karol. Keep laughing.
Ummmmmmmmmmmm, how are these "gay" clothes?? You're so homophobic, Toby. Sheesh.
They were clothes worn by gay icons in one of the iconic movies.. they're being marketed to gay audiences by and through the HRC.
Homophobic? You're calling me homophobic while chuckling at this after going to a movie and having to prove emphatically you're all straight by sitting boy-girl-boy-girl in the theater. Get real.
I'm joking, guy. How can clothes be straight or gay? C'mon, now. Those same clothes worn by straight people would be 'straight clothes'. Plus, the movie features them having relationships with women. These are bi-sexual clothes AT BEST.
Relax man, all joking...
Yeah, you're telling your friends to dress up in these clothes worn by gay men so that you can make fun of them. That's a GREAT joke and I see the humor in it. No, you're right. I don't see anything homophobic about demoralizing a whole demographic of society for your fancy. Yes,That's not alienating to anyone, right?
I'm being homophobic by calling them "gay" clothes? You're the one making fun of them because, to you, they are gay clothes.
Hey, I'm just trying to help you in some way by pointing out how idiotic and juvenile such jokes sound, especially from someone trying to sell an ideology that otherwise has merit to those you're making fun of. You keep pushing people out, you're going to need a smaller tent -- that's fine by me. Just make sure to sit boy-girl-boy-girl so no one mistakes you.
Yeah, you're telling your friends to dress up in these clothes worn by gay men so that you can make fun of them.
No I'm not. I'm telling them to dress up in those clothes because they're hot and I like the cowboy look. And, no, again, they're not gay clothes, that's ridiculous. Seriously, Toby, I expect better from you.
I have two pairs of cowboy boots. I guess I'm gay and don't know it.
Oh please, sell it to someone who would believe that for a second.
You're telling your friends to dress up in these clothes worn by gay characters because you think "they're hot?" You're amusement comes from the fact you're dressing up straights - squeemish enough on gay culture to have girls separate them at a movie - in clothes worn by gay men.
Of course, I'm not saying the clothes themselves are gay. They're gay in that they are are iconic to gay culture having been worn in a very important (and beautiful) movie about gay culture that went main stream. To point your argument to my calling the clothes "gay" is rediculous.
It's homophobic and sad. Really, you shouldn't expect more from me. I am one of those gays or bis you snicker at in the corner. Why think more of me?
Urg, whatever. If you think Brokeback Mountain was an important movie for the gay world, I don't know what to tell you. It was a pretty movie with pretty people but it made gay people look dysfunctional and ridiculous.
No, I think it made the constraints of conventional society (conservative values) create dysfunctional and rediculous situations for men who don't fit the mold trying while despirately trying to live to the ideals passed down to them. It was sad in that both members never fit in and how Ennis felt so less of himself from his inability to live up to what those around him constituted a "good man."
Anyway, I digress and certainly don't care to get into these issues here.
I'm leaving it here. Ughh, is right. I've come not to expect any more than this on the first issues I've raised. Small tent.
I apologize for ever agreeing with Toby. It's not that he isn't sometimes right. It's that he's obviously humor impaired--and though I'm pretty sure he'll take this as some sort of homophobic joke because that seems to be his one-trick pony--he's obviously got a big, painful, VERY unfunny stick wedged up his bum.
Because, you know Karol, if Ace and Allah DON'T watch the movie, they're a couple of homophobes. But if they do watch the movie and like it and joke about it later ... they're a couple of homophobes. Nevermind that some gay bloggers I read hated the movie because it ... well, I think because they cast straight guys in gay roles or something.
But, like the man says, "You count the damn few times we have been together in nearly twenty years and you measure the short fucking leash you keep me on - and then you ask me about Mexico!"
I'm telling them to dress up in those clothes because they're hot and I like the cowboy look.
She means the clothes are hot, not us.
Gay people, just like straight people, are ridiculous and dysfunctional...duh. That's what equality means. The movie was raw and proved how homophobia hurts everyone, gay, straight, bi, whatever.
She means the clothes are hot, not us.
Oh, come on! A number of people have posted that you are hot, Allah. One, was even a woman. :P
