Apparently larger bookstores are afraid to order Why Are Faggots So Afraid of Faggots? because of the title…

Quick – should I change it to Why are Fidgets so Afraid of Widgets?

I didn't even know there were larger bookstores left. They'd prefer that faggots continue to be expletives deleted. How about a plain brown wrapper titled "Why Are Bookstores So Afraid of Words?" And for the motivational section "Who Moved My Faggot?"

Or Why are Gays so Afraid of Homosexuals? I'm cool with the title but outsiders may find it too provocative. That's the risk of community activists telling people that the use of "faggot" is insulting. ;-)

Slow Revel, I know – soon there will be none! And, I love this:

"They'd prefer that faggots continue to be expletives deleted."

So so so SO true!!!

And, yes, yes – "Why Are Bookstores So Afraid of Words?"

And, I'm looking for that motivational section right now, I mean as soon as I get to a bookstore – no longer will I search and search and search for that queer section, I will just go right to the desk and say, "Who Moved My Faggot?"

And Kay, provocative is the way it must be :)

Love love love –
