The blogosphere is a very weird place indeed:
Second “Lesbian” Blogger Turns Out To Be a Man
Editor of Lez Get Real outs himself as a retired military man from Ohio.
Seriously, gentleman, this is getting ridiculous.
One day after the author behind the popular “A Gay Girl in Damascus” blog admitted to being a married American man, the editor of the lesbian news site Lez Get Real came forward to acknowledge that he is also a married man and not “Paula Brooks” as he had claimed since the site’s founding in 2008.
Bill Graber, a 58-year-old retired military man, admitted to the Washington Post that he had been using his wife’s online identity without her knowledge to run the site, which has “A Gay Girls’ View on the World” tagline.
“I didn’t start this with my name because… I thought people wouldn’t take it seriously, me being a straight man,” he told the paper….
I have nothing to say about this, beyond what I said in the headline (which is not original; I think I heard somebody say that on TV, making fun of straight guys’ fantasies about lesbianism).
Oh, except to add… this is more evidence to support my point that women are more likely than men to be grownups… Of course, we may be about to hear of a rash of straight women pretending to be gay guys on the Web. But I doubt it.
I suddenly remembered — a fellow editor, another guy, I worked with back in the ’80s (long before there was a blogosphere) used to joke that he was going to chuck it all and and take up writing lesbian pornography. That same editor used to be a regular commenter on this blog. But we haven’t heard from him lately…
