Details magazine has taken some slack lately for their popular "Gay or..." column. The little section is supposed to be humorous, but at times the comedy can get interpreted as racist/sexist/homophobic. Each month they show a picture of a person who fits certain stereotypes and asks if they're "Gay or..." a presidential candidate, a dictator or a celebrity baby daddy. The mag highlights different parts of the person and puts little quips beside them.
Last week a publicist sent the copy and photo for this month's "Gay or..." column. It's entitled "Gay or... Straight?" The intro copy reads:
One's hot for the ladies, the other much prefers his fellow man. Whether he's cruising the nearest glory hole or picking up the scent of a woman, this guy advances the Homo sapiens agenda: eating, sleeping, and tending to his inflamed nether regions. So get a grip on your manhood, because behind two great sexual orientations stands a great one-track mind.
You can click through to see the picture and quips. So what do you think? Offensive or just funny? Or both at the same time? I'm interested to see what our readers and contributors think about this...
