Project Poll

Mon, 02-17-2014 - 8:20am

This is my attempt at fluff.  Sorry in advance if it's not fluffy enough.

1) What's the biggest event (Work, Social, Volunteef) you have ever organized? Do you like creating/hosting events, or would you rather just be an attendee?

2). What's the biggest home improvement kind of project you've ever attempted?  How did it go?  

3). Are you crafty?  Are you working on a project right now?  Tell us about it!

4)  What are you reading?

You have no idea what intolerance looks like if all you do is say it about others. Shame on you jzy/graps.

. Do you have anything to say about your friend Black/White's ugly comments about another woman's husband, or is that behavior okay with you?

1) What's the biggest event (Work, Social, Volunteef) you have ever organized? Do you like creating/hosting events, or would you rather just be an attendee? Probably my 50th birthday party - sit down diner for 65 people.

2). What's the biggest home improvement kind of project you've ever attempted?  How did it go?  I have rehabbed a couple of apartments over the years. It usually goes well. I grew up with it as a constant thing, so ...

3). Are you crafty?  Are you working on a project right now?  Tell us about it! I don't think of myself as such, but I guess I kind of am. I am knitting a sweater (slowly), recently made a baby quilt, all hand sewn, and made myself a blouse yesterday.

4)  What are you reading? The Emperor of all Maladies. I had resisted in spite of the glowing reviews, because I was all cancered out, but now that I gave in, I have to say that it is an excellent book.

PS: My husband is not gay. There seems to be some kind of poll going.

What does molly have to do with the post I wrote to chestnuthooligan? 

Care to answer the question I asked...  What is a stereotypical gay guy?  Is there stereotypical straight then too?  IYO?

I'm assume you do not know what stereotype means? Here's the definition:

1.
a widely held but fixed and oversimplified image or idea of a particular type of person or thing.


The show, Queer Eye, was based on the premise that played with the steroetypes that gay men are superior in matters of fashion, style, personal grooming, interior design and culture. In each episode, the team of five gay men known collectively as the "Fab Five" performed a makeover  on a person, usually a straight man, revamping his wardrobe, redecorating his home and offering advice on grooming, lifestyle and food.

Tell that to your friend Molly. She's the one that was labeling people gay - based upon a few untruths.  People she's never even met nonetheless.

So, If my husband wears a pink polo or prefers a salad to steak he runs the risk of stereotype?  He's not gay and I don't think if he was lined up a guy that was gay you could tell the difference. 

ETA I've not seen "Queer eye".  Is that a program you watch?

No, I won't ask her. I refuse to engage her on this subject. She's made up her mind, and I really don't care to try to change it. It doesn't make a difference in my life, so why waste my breath?

Or maybe she was going after what you've said about the guy yourself, That b/c he wasn't with a woman for many years it was believed he was gay.  I don't know, why don't you ask her...
