Comment of the day

A comment left by Frederick Stebbins on the Miami Herald's Naked Politics blog story about Ché Guevara glorifying portrait hanging at the W Hotel on South Beach:

Why aren't other members of the gay community as offended as I am about this disgusting tribute to one of the most infamous homophobes (and murderers of homosexual men) of the 20th century?

Che Guevara explicitly wrote volumes of vitriolic hatred towards gay men, and considered them deviant/threats to his society. He blatantly, personally executed hundreds of men because they were admitted "homosexuals". When are the hipsters and their wealthy, priviliged, naive New York sponsors going to get an education? So sad...

    Once again, when "progressive" Spanish gays "desecrated" the Che "icon" with women's make-up as a promotional gimmick to raise funds for Mariela Castro's CENESEX operation, Mariela herself got all bent out of shape and turned on them. I repeat, these were Castro-friendly gays, not Reinaldo Arenas types. You do the math.

    In other words, Mariela Castro is happy to co-opt gays and USE them, but they'd better toe the line.

    The basic problem here is that for many people, fashion and image trumps EVERYTHING.
