Straight men really are interested in lesbians

A second supposedly leading lesbian blogger was exposed as a man masquerading as a gay woman, a day after the Gay Girl in Damascus blog was revealed to be the fictional creation of a married male student from Edinburgh.

Paula Brooks, who claimed to be the executive editor of a US-based lesbian site, told the Washington Post that \”she\”, too, was a man – in this case, a 58-year-old retired construction worker from Ohio called Bill Graber.

Now all we need to find out is that Jessica Valenti, Amanda Marcotte and Melissa McMasters are in fact a 72 year old, male, retired steel worker from Gary Indiana and life will be complete.

Sadly unlikely to happen as I would expect the quality of prose to have been better if it were true.

  1. So Much For Subtlety

    It is now all clear to me – Amanda Marcotte is really a semi-retired accountant from Ohio who was made up solely to generate page hits for his blog.

  2. While I have had reluctantly to accept that “Amanda Marcotte” is not a flavour of ice cream, may I now hope that she’s an ageing, male ice cream mogul from the Midwest?

  3. Anything can happen on the internet, even a retired accountant from Wandsworth pretending to be an economist capable of re-ordering the global economy.

  4. There’s no mystery whatever as to why men are generally interested in lesbians. They’re NOT (or at least no more than in heterosexual activity involving a male (or males) other than themselves.

    What they ARE interested in is sexual activity occurring between subjects, both (or more) of whom seem fit, deserving candidates for their own particular imaginative attentions. It’s that simple: MO’ = BETTA

  5. What puzzles me about this whole episode is why everyone is so surprised that two supposedly lesbian women on the internet turn out to be middle-aged blokes.

    I’ve never visited one myself, but isn’t it pretty much common knowledge that all the “women” in those sex chat rooms are actually overweight, bearded and tattoed truckers from Glasgow, called Angus?
