What I said in the South Florida Blade this week:

How Queer is Too Queer

Was the man talking on the cell phone giving or receiving the knob job? My guess would be receiving, but these are strange times. Multi tasking should have limits.

I think there's a difference between being sex positive and simply being inappropriate. Just as I don't want to have to hear the radio of the person next to me on the subway, I don't want to have to witness the sex act of people in a location where sex acts are not part of the deal. If I go to an underwear party and two guys are doing it in the guest bedroom, well, that's fair. If I'm at a baby shower and two bridesmaids are going down on each other in the kitchen, well, that's not appropriate.

I love to hear show tunes, but don't sing them in the library. I love sex, but please don't engage in it in the locker room. Keep it in the shower stall like the rest of us do.

Farmboyz, granted it's your blog, etc etc blah blah blah, but as I sense your writerly aspirations extend beyond the narrow confines of a personal diary / log, you might want to pay attention to how many of your sentences (in non-Farmboyz writing) contain the word "I". Then read some of your favorite authors and see how many of theirs do. Just a thought, from a loyal reader....

Dear Queens Village,

It seems that you're more interested in me than am I, I , I.

PS: In some formats, I do as I am told by editors with objectives and financial motivations.

Father: What a well-written, reasonable article on a subject about which I had a discussion just yesterday!

Being sex-positive is important, and I agree that we need to stand up for our right to express sexuality in all its forms. But beyond any need to be 'accepted' into hetero society, I think there is a deeper need to exercise the basic courtesy of being appropriate and considerate of others. I think we can be completely sex-positive and completely civilized at the same time.
