Glenn I

When a friend praised the new "Lincoln" movie I said, "That's twice Daniel Day-Lewis has played gay." My friend bristled: "What! There's no proof about Lincoln, I don't think it matters, that's silly." Sadly, my friend is gay and out and hardly homophobic. But there it is, the internalized homophobia requiring he "defend" Lincoln against the charge of homosexuality. As though there were really any other response than, "Huh? I hadn't heard that. I'd be interested to review the evidence."
