Now I’ve read my Foucault like the best of them…

Tom Coates wins my heart as he shares his feelings about “The Queer Eye for the Straight Guy” phenomenon.
Notable Quotes: “Bollocks to happy gay people on TV, bollocks to the straight audiences, bollocks to the producers, bollocks to the bloody cameramen, bollocks to any passing trannies. Bollocks, if you will, to absolutely bloody everyone. I’m going to say this once and once only – and I hope it doesn’t come as too much of a shock to anyone: It’s not just Straight Eye for the Queer guy that will be patronising shit that sells an image of gayness that is damaging and frustratingly bland.”
