Don't get me wrong, Sierra: Appropriation does happen, but gay men didn't steal "your" shit. They helped draw, color, sew, produce and conceive of it in the first place. So when you see white gay men emulating black women, you should be aware that part of what they are responding to is the expression of gay, queer and feminine men.

We are, this year, 50 years removed from the civil rights movement's "Freedom Summer" of 1964. To be sure, changes in our society have been nothing short of revolutionary.
