XM had a gay pride theme going and Josie Cotton's song, "Johnny, Are You Queer" was one of them.
I struggled with this. Pride? Or homophobia?
I kind of like the song. But I don't think I've ever seen the video. Is Josie Cotton really Christine Baranski at age 38 and in a wig? And I kind of take offense that Johnny isn't just gay, but a nerd cast-out with an ill fitting cardigan and tape on his glasses. You know, because being gay wasn't enough of a high school pariah group.
Still - the sentiment has plagued us all, no? I mean, at some point, it's a girl, girlfriend, friend, stranger or family member who ponders - maybe not as bluntly as Cotton's title - if you indeed are a "confirmed bachelor".
And due tot that alone, it fits into our Pride or Pride story.
