Thanks, Carrie -- well I'm not so big on the “science” of the gay brain, which was very big maybe 10 years ago with that terrible Simon LeVay study (cultural similarities between some gay men and straight women notwithstanding) – the Craig Seymour piece is interesting except for the end where he talks about "manipulating" strip club patrons without any analysis of other power dynamics involved...

Love --

Yeah, I was kind of skeptical about the "science" and "manipulation" too ;)

Science and manipulation -- I'm glad you put those two things together, Carrie :)
