Oh, best commission ever. An editor at a publication "noted for its homophobia" — pretty obviously the New York Post — contacted Rich Juzwiak, the blogger behind Four Four and best friend of Tracie Egan at Jezebel. The paper needed a gay male ("gale", get it?) to mock a new course at the University of Michigan, on how to be gay. The proposed storyline: "I did think that all it took to be gay was sleeping w/men, but turns out I was wrong, that kind of thing." Oh, and work in Carson Kressley's new show. (He's a gale, isn't he?) You know what, why don't they just write it themselves? The full email, after the jump.
