It's become really hard because real life has become so incredibly bizarre, it's hard to write fiction that isn't topped by that day's headlines.
And so it was today, I was forwarded a link to a website called Christwire that reinforced the idea..
The link was to a reportedly serious column that makes the claim that the late 1980s and early 1990s sitcom, The Golden Girls turned many American male viewers gay.
See? How can a novelist compete with that?
But after doing some research into the site, it's still unclear if the site is a spoof (I lean in that direction) or one that is arguably real.
If the people who are posting things on it are, well, serious, I am going to have to find a new term. Wing nut doesn't even come close. In fact, it would be an insult to wing nuts everywhere to be linked to what is posted on the site.
Check it out, but not this moment. The site seems to be crashing a lot.
Amen to that.
Golden Girls - gay magnets?
