Sexist: Homophobically Fabulous CdA

The men about town in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho want to be fabulous. You can tell from their bare chests, draped in button-downs unbuttoned past their pecs. You can tell from the wingspans of their long-sleeved crew-necks, illustrated with flowers and encrusted with rhinestones. You can tell by their goatees—finely tuned, from mustache to soul patch. These men want to be fabulous, but what they really, really don’t want to be is gay—you can tell by their incessant dropping of homophobic epithets/Amanda Hess, The Sexist blog, Washington City Paper. More here.

DFO: I don't know anything about the Sexist column in the Washington (D.C.) City Paper. But I thought this article about an easterner's view of the men in Coeur d'Alene was interesting.
