Okay, so Chip and Reichen won The Amazing Race 4 last night, and the Gay World applauds. But how can they applaud a team who, upon winning, spout off such inanities as this:
“This shows that gay people can do anything.”
Gee, I didn’t realize that most people thought gay people were idiots who couldn’t do normal human functions.
When whoever-it-was made this profound statement, I turned to Anthony (who is gay) and asked, “Really – you guys can brush your teeth, too?”
Then Ace started complaining that everyone is gay now and that it’s too commonplace. I couldn’t tell if he was excited or ticked off. Excited to be more accepted, and yet ticked off for being more accepted (he loves to think he’s a non-confirmist or ahead of the trends, doncha Ace?)
In any case, bravo to Chip and Reichen for a well-played game.
