[Ads-l] Heard on The Simpsons

"I think he's a _male_ gay [as opposed to being a female gay?]."

It seems to me - I could be wrong, of course - that the usual distinction
is between "gays" and "lesbians" and, though women say, "I am/she is gay,"
men never say, "I am/he is lesbian."


All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
