And with that headline, my work as a blogger is officially done. There are no more mountains to climb, my friends. We’ve reached the summit.
In related news, the Gay Softball World Series actually exists.
Three bisexual men are suing a national gay-athletic organization, saying they were discriminated against during the Gay Softball World Series held in the Seattle area two years ago.
The three Bay Area men say the North American Gay Amateur Athletic Alliance in essence deemed them not gay enough to participate in the series…
Whether the alliance is public or private will likely have to be determined in court, since the plaintiffs characterize the alliance as a “public accommodation” that’s open to the public and uses public softball fields…
Each of the three plaintiffs was called into a conference room in front of more than 25 people, and was asked “personal and intrusive questions” about his sexual attractions and desires, purportedly to determine if the player was heterosexual or gay, the lawsuit alleges.
Actual quote from the lawsuit: “This is the Gay World Series, not the Bisexual World Series.” (The Bisexual World Series is any one that the Yankees play in. Zing!) Teams are allowed two straight players each, which is interesting in itself — is there such a demand among hetero men to join the Gay Softball League that numbers have to be capped? — but I’m especially intrigued by the star-chamber treatment for the three secret bi’s who were ultimately deemed, ahem, “nongay.” Didn’t they know about the two-player limit? When the commissioner of the Gay Softball League asks if you prefer oysters or snails, the answer is snails.
I suppose we could delve into an exploration of public accommodations law here, but on a slow news night, how about a viral video instead? Exit question: If “Dirty Dancing” qualifies as gay, would this qualify as bi?
