My Critics Think I'm "Disgusting"!

I learned that by Googling myself -- as I do every three minutes -- and coming across my page on Philosopedia.org.

It starts off really nice, mind you:

"He dishes the dirt and minces no words. His use of circle endings, double entendres, catty sense of humor, and witty in-jokes brings laughter out of the young, most of the middle-aged, and many of the older.

"'His outlook is refreshingly logical, his syntax is a marvel, and his influence primarily in gay circles is monumental', remarked one of his Greenwich Village regular readers."

How lovely! I'd be blushing if my face weren't already pink from a light spanking I just had.

But here comes the bad part:

"His critics, however, find him fey, outrageous, always in bad taste, and often disgusting."

Say whaaaa???

First of all, "often disgusting"? How very dare you! I'm always disgusting!

Secondly, considering the fact that my critics are generally gay-haters, clueless rivals, and people on Fox News, I'm deeply honored that they find me to be in terrible taste.

So, thank you, Philosopedia. This ended up being a pretty delightful summation of what I bring to the gay table, not to mention a Google search that really left me moist.

Oops, I'm being disgusting again.

Always remember what Bette Davis' mother told her when La Davis received harsh critiques:

"The birds only peck at the best fruit."

when one is at the "top" of their game, critics have a clear, unobstructed shot.

This is like Liz Smith talking about reporting "scandals" in New York Magazine...toothless!

Quite a superficial write-up for a site that brandishes a variation on "philosophy" in its name. You're worth a few words longer than that - five volumes at least. And for the (fortunately) anonymous writer to use fey, outrageous, bad taste, and disgusting as terms of derision - either she or he didn't earn any qualification from a well-regarded institution of learning, or simply lacked the skill essential to pulling off basic satire.

And what's with those categories? Gossip Columnists / Homosexuals / Humanists? I thought Cold War values went out of fashion half a century ago, unless ... Philosopedia's been Tea Party-coopted!

Sir M....(Merlin, Mordred, Musto)...I'm still hurting from laughter from the Susan Lucci post...I don't agree that to love you one needs to be clued into the 'gay' sensibility; you provide nourishment for the cultural sophisticate...like myself...well, off to google myself and update my IMDB profile, Lady Honks

any org that is named 'philosopedia' is suspect.

I thought it said "He minces," but it said "He minces no words." Good writeup!

Thank you, dear. I wish more of the regulars here had watched that Susan Lucci thing to catch my stage brilliance! But it's definitely picking up viewers.
