When does straightness become embarrassing? Now I feel like I’ve been doing it wrong.

I’d claim that you’ve broken the heart of MGK/Flapjacks shippers everywhere, but 95% of those fanfics assumed you were just two separate personalities of the same guy, and the other 5% are crazy.

NO! My life has no more meaning! *sobs*

I figured as much, recollecting prior statements made by you on the subject of Marisa Tomei

“I’m lucky enough to be straight and white and male and not even a member of some relatively marginalized religious or ethnic group and I feel better about it.”

What religious group do you associate yourself with, if it’s not one that’s “relatively marginalized?”

I would guess either none or a major Christian denomination.

Also, it depends on what you mean by marginalized.

I mean, I’m a Quaker, and that’s kind of obscure… but I wouldn’t say we’re marginalized. Mistaken for Amish, sure, but not marginalized.

* Also, don’t be embarrassed, MGK. You’re not alone out here on this side of the continuum. It would be difficult to find a more liberal, queer-tolerant upbringing than mine, but… dudes just don’t do it for me.

** Also also, did anyone else read that article a while back in a major, well-written periodical that was about a study of arousal in men and women? The upshot was basically that men self-identify accurately and respond in a consistent manner – straight men respond to pictures of naked women, gay men respond to pictures of naked men, et cetera… whereas women were so complicated that the scientists still weren’t sure how to interpret the results.

I think the scientists just said that so they could continue studying sexual arousal in women.

“Hmm, no, these results still don’t form a coherent picture. Hey, maybe if the test subjects wore tight spandex while watching the lesbian scene from ‘Bound’, while attached to electrodes to monitor their vital signs while I, er, observe, from the soundproof booth with the one-way glass? That could be the crucial data we need!”

Sigh. There go my schoolboy dreams of a Legion-themed Canadian wedding.
PS If you’re curious, I’d’ve been the Chemical King and MGK would have been the Invisible Kid.

Look on the bright side, Beagle Boy. You can always PRETEND that MGK will always be your Invisible Kid.

Holy shit I inspired an MGK blog post! I should either be very proud or very ashamed. Maybe both.

Well, Toby, it could be worse, you could be Mennonite.

“I would guess either none or a major Christian denomination.”

Atheists are the least popular minority for a president to be, at least in the US. :(

No data for if we could take, say, a Black Mormon homosexual, though.

I’m totally with you on the whole “very straight” thing. I thought in high school that maybe if I was gay it would explain why I was so weird, and I honestly tried- just nothing doing. Turns out I’m just weird.

Sarah- Yeah, I’d say a black president is very likely.

I remember at least a couple mentions of our illustrious blogger dating or being into women so I never thought he was gay or anything.

My brother-in-law is a Mennonite. It beats him being a Mormon, I guess, but he’s awfully smug about it sometimes. Fancy-ass Amish Lite.

Can we have that scene on a repeating loop?

Toby S., those kinds of studies have pretty wonky methods. Their measures of arousal are the volume of blood in the penis and in the walls of the vagina. They’re two different organs, and no one even knows if/how blood flow relates to female arousal. It’s an interesting idea fo sho, but I’m not really sure anyone can trust their interpretation of their findings.
