O Abe

I don't read The Village Voice so eagerly anymore as I did in my college days. (Back then their personal ads section was far, far more interesting with a whole load of sexual offers.) However, I am still in the habit of picking a copy up whenever I'm in Manhattan for the Counter Culture (restaurant review) section.

Besides, you can't exactly expect mainstream media such as NYT to print stuff like this:

That's where the simple categorizing of gay and straight turns troublesome. To the characters of Abraham Lincoln's Big Gay Dance Party (discussed in Part 1 of this essay last week), Lincoln's sexual preference is a cut-and-dried issue: Either he was gay (no matter how many children he and Mary Todd produced) or he absolutely wasn't (no matter how intense his affection for Joshua Speed). The notion that he may have cherished, embraced, and perhaps even come to orgasm with Speed, and still been content with Mary and the kids, doesn't fit in the contemporary schema. At best, it would simply make Lincoln a tormented bisexual, grudgingly fulfilling his husbandly duty while his heart yearned to romp with the handsome flatboatmen of his youth.

Outing Abe

...My eyes. They saw nothing.
留一句题外话。我们的亲热天堂工会成立了,CEO童鞋乃要不要拿个TOON加入我们啊XD。
恭喜恭喜!

游戏本身的话,我上次可能忘记和你说了?我的山口山帐号很久都没付钱了……因为信用卡换号了- - 等CTM出来可能会回来吧……如果回来公会肯定会加的,不过那时候可能主要去玩部落了?Goblin太萌了……

不要啊,我们都好期待蝴蝶小姐的。。。你好歹跟我们RAID几次再说换部落啊。。。

Re: T T

R....raid...我手早生了,而且这么久不玩装备也落后,加血死人那是一定的……我还想留点好印象给人啊谢谢……orzzzzzz

Re: T T

没关系的你相信我,我们现在也是帮朋友刷ICC10的装备。你来了就帮你刷,一周肯定就跟我们一样毕业了。另外,不用怕加血死人,我曾经一个人治疗过ICC10的前5场BOSS,所以我可以帮你治,装备上去自然就好了。

May I interest you in some Abe Lincoln & vampire slashiness?

I recently finished Seth Grahame-Smith's Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter which had Speed in it, but the slashy overtones were reserved for the fictional vampire Henry (who was depicted as Lincoln's friend and mentor).

Here's the scene that had me squeeing inside:

Henry is teaching Abe how to hunt vampires, and Abe manages to ambush Henry and pin him down...

Abe: I feel... like a rabbit that has taken a fox for a teacher.
Henry: And I, a mouse that has taken a cat for a student.

P.S. - I got the book free from my workplace, and you're welcome to it.
