Don't Get Mad, Get Funny

You know, one of the odd things about gay rights is how the fight is/was fought.
.
In the beginning (the 80's), due to AIDS it was a loud angry yell demanding equal rights.  But that only gets you so far.  So, in the late 90's it moved to loud and strident, with a little Will and Grace thrown in.  And now that it is almost here, it has moved to humor almost exclusively.
.
Well humor and the scientific discovery that the most strident anti-homosexual men are the ones that get a physical response to depictions of gay sex.  And no college guy wants to be thought of a closet case, so they are okay with it.
.
And we end up here.  Gay men making a video that pokes fun of homosexual stereotypes.
.
We might not have had the fastest path to equal rights, but it has been the funest and funniest.
