* Christopher Hitchens: Ex-gay, kind of! In his forthcoming memoir, the writer who does not think this is very funny refers to his continued sexual relations with men—-past his regular gay dalliances at boarding school—-as a “relapse”:
”Every now and then, even though I was by then fixed on the pursuit of young women, a mild and mildly enjoyable relapse would occur and I suppose that I can ‘claim’ this … of two young men who later became members of Margaret Thatcher’s government. For this very reason I can’t really give any more names.”
* In related news: Noted ex-gay activist goes wild with male prostitute on European vacation; claims he hired the guy to “lift luggage.” Indeed!
I’ll give this guy a couple ounces of credit—-he is generally okay with young people masturbating, and he didn’t laugh at a girl who said she gets turned on by the cries of babies. But his views on female masturbation (derived, clearly, from absolutely nothing legitimate) are so fucked up, so irritating, and so detrimental, that I want to punch him in the face.
*Andrea Grimes of Heartless Doll asks if you can forget how to have sex.
* Congratulate From Austin to A&M on graduating to a level of feminist blogging where assholes come onto her blog and accuse her of being sexist for calling out other people for being sexist. Every feminist blogger experiences this special milestone!
