02/13/2004 Entry: "Big Fag"

"...only now the straight boyz have moved into a post-modern fucking with the rules; they flirt back, and they tell you that you smell nice, and they tell you that you look good, and they feel your muscles, and do any number of other things that now have become their right and privilege whereas if I were to do any of those things under similiar circumstances I'd most likey get my head handed to me or otherwise; and if I think about it really hard it's almost like heterosexual privilege has gone and taken away the one powerful thing that gay boyz had, which was admitting a penchant for something that was considered taboo, only now straight boys are playing at doing it too, well, very often actually doing it too, if you must know; yet in the final analysis gay guys don't have that same equality as it were, there is something profoundly wrong about the whole thing on a purely intellectual level that I can't quite put my finger on but which annoys me no end..." Danny Drennan in the new Big Fag zine

I'll take Danny's word that this happens, since I'm not a gay guy and I don't get out much anyway. Does this happen to lesbians, too? Somehow I don't think it does. If a lesbian was flirting with a straight woman, would the repercussions be the same? Do lesbians worry about getting beaten up by gangs on drunken sorority girls? (OK, maybe they do worry about getting beaten up by their drunken boyfriends.) So I think I'd qualify his observation by saying it's not just heterosexual privilege, it's straight white guy privilege (because they're entitled to everything, you know).

BTW, go and buy a copy of Big Fag right now. It's well-made and interesting and it's a real paper zine, fer cryin' out loud! Only two bucks. Go. Now.
