Lesbian Trailer Trash ?!? Hey! I resemble that comment!! LOL..
Our dearest NursePammie has posted in her blog, a link from Salon.com about the reception of the movie 'Brokeback Mountain', in my little northwest corner of Montana.
It's freaked me out a little bit, actually, hearing of the reception in my old stomping grounds. Home at Christmas, Lynne and I had many occasions to see the ads on TV. One conversation in particular sticks in my mind. I've been chewing on it ever since... hence the 'freaking' .. lol.
We were talking about how well it would do. Hopefully, Lynne remembers more of the convo, because my mind stopped when Sus snorted at the idea of a gay cowboy. As if!
Lynne and I had a little laugh later, over how silly the presumption seemed to Sus. Poor little heart, of course there were/are gay cowboys. (Do I have statistics? Nope. Show me a list of facts, I'll suggest fear of homophobia skewing the results... so don't even try to argue with me. I'm a lost cause.) But, as I remember, we did let it go with her. Best friend/ hostess manners and all that.
So now I'm mulling over 2 things;
1) Is it possible Sus was teasing, being ridiculous so to infer that the opposite was inarguably true? If the answer is no, what then? Sus HAS cowboyed, worked a ranch, led horseback trips into the Bob Marshall Wilderness, hunts and is a rodeo fiend. So... what?! Cowboys are too macho? Too isolated, to --- what -- to be gay? I'd never suggest it was the LARGEST gay-populated field. But to truly believe there are absolutely NO gay cowboys? hmmmm.
2) Why didn't I better stand up for the gay community?
