Michael Lucas has got to have more than incriminating photographs of editors of The Advocate, because he's over there, not just writing a love letter to Ann Coulter calling her "provocative, smart, witty, funny, fearless," but distraught that all the other gays in America don't love her as much as he does. Obviously the problem is us, that we're too sensitive about being called faggots to realize that Ann Coulter will do more for LGBT people than Harvey Milk, Sylvia Rivera, and Bayard Rustin combined if we'd just grow up and embrace her.
Of note in the column is Lucas getting mad that someone would compare gay oppression to the Holocaust (fair enough, I'm willing to accept that that's off-limits), when, just two months ago, he was claiming that Madrid Pride canceling an Israeli float in the parade a "retroactive attempt to justify the Holocaust." In fact, he has no problem doing a full-Godwin on anyone he disagrees with (and neither does Coulter), so it's weird to see him offended that someone else would say that.
We LGBT people really need a thought leader like Michael Lucas, don't we?
This seems like a good time to post the video after the jump on how to be a blogger that's been making its rounds. It's kind of like that, being a queer blogger, although I'm sure Chuck Todd would have more insightful observations about LGBT politics than Michael Lucas. Liberal bloggers don't know how good they have it.
