South Korea Landmark Ruling on Gay Sex, Cultural Appropriation: Don't Dip Your Pen In Someone Else's Blood, Ryan Field Books

South Korea Landmark Ruling on Gay Sex

This is big news for gay men in South Korea who are in the military. The Supreme Court of SK recently ruled against the military’s age-old ban on gay consensual sex away from a military setting. Then they struck down guilty verdicts for two gay men who had been charged with having sex off their base. 

The two accused men, a first lieutenant and a master sergeant, were indicted on charges of breaking the military code after they were found to have had sex in a private house during off-duty hours in 2016. Lower military courts sentenced the lieutenant to four months in jail and the sergeant to three months; the sentences were suspended.

Here’s more. Pay attention, you women who appropriate gay culture in the m/m romance genre. This is what gay men are still dealing with, while you still have your straight privilege and your dominance. I think this makes us a little bit more marginalized than you claim to be. You can scream misogyny from the rooftops, but what happens to gay men will always be far worse. And it’s still happening to us. The article goes on to talk about what it’s like for gay men in SK, and that same-sex marriage is still illegal.

However, this is a landmark ruling in SK and as usual, we gay men are thrilled for anything we can get. 

Cultural Appropriation: Don’t Dip Your Pen In Someone Else’s Blood

I see so much cultural appropriation and discrimination all the time with gay men I’d be a blithering idiot not to mention it. And in some cases, this issue is one where I’m willing to go up on that hill. Because it’s so, so wrong. 

The article to which I’m linking now explains how problems will arise when writing about different cultures. One topic they touch upon is the cultural appropriation in the book and film “The Help.” It created anger and insult, and the Association of Black Women Historians even issued a statement…

The American Association of Black Women Historians released an open statement which concludes that it is “unacceptable for either this book or this film to strip black women’s lives of historical accuracy for the sake of entertainment”.

And they were absolutely correct. If you can’t see this, you are part of the problem, not the solution. It happens with every other culture, too.  

Here’s the rest.  If you have no clue about cultural appropriation, read this article. It might help you go down on the right side of history.

A few years back there was a wonderful TV series on PBS called “Vicious.” Its focus was on two gay men who had been together as a couple for many years. I loved it. Every gay man I know loved it. And that’s because it was authentic. But the most interesting thing happened. When the straights started to review it they slammed it as being inauthentic and stereotypical. Go figure!

Are You Appropriating or Appreciating Queer Culture?

 Are You Appropriating or Appreciating Queer Culture?

A very good gay male author friend of mine has been dealing with the attack of straight women writing gay fiction simply because he said he doesn’t believe that straight women can capture the authenticity of gay culture the same way gay men can do it. Which seems perfectly reasonable to me. 

I’m not talking about readers. Readers should read whatever they want. Just authors, singers, actors, writers, and anyone who appropriates another culture. The story I’m linking to now is about how Madonna appropriated gay culture many years ago and thought nothing of it. But first, here’s a good definition of cultural appropriation. 

Defining cultural appropriation isn’t easy. Typically, it’s used when members of a dominant group borrow the customs of another group, often one that’s experienced oppression in some way. 

Here’s more. The excerpt above is not only accurate but it’s been happening for years to queer culture. And if you think my friend and I are the only ones talking about it you are living in a dream world. It happens to other marginalized groups, too. I don’t want to minimize that. I recently posted about how it was happening in Asian culture with a popular TV show called Kim’s Convenience

It goes on to mention how Madonna was accused of cultural appropriation. And that’s exactly what it was. With her straight white privilege, she made a lot of money. 

But Madonna was accused of cultural appropriation, with many accusing her of profiting off of the work of the marginalized folk she worked with.

An Awful Gay TV Series, Helix Studios Presents, Streaming On Prime by a Women Writing Gay Content, Heidi Moore

An Awful Gay TV Series, “Helix Studios Presents,”  Streaming On Prime by a Women Writing Gay Content, Heidi Moore

We’ve been watching this TV series about gay men on Prime called Helix Studios Presents and Tony lost patience with it last night. It’s so bad he actually begged me to turn it off. It is the most inauthentic piece of gay content I have ever seen. It says on IMDb the writing credits go to Heidi Moore. 

In addition to directing, Heidi writes and edits at Helix Studios; a queer entertainment studio that makes its own rules. 

That’s a short excerpt from one of her online bios. 


We made it to the 3rd episode before my husband, Tony, begged me to turn it off.  At the time, as I said, we didn’t know it was gay content written by a woman. But I suspected it.

Here’s the description from Amazon.

 Chase has just had the worst day of his life, and Garrett’s had enough of pretty much everything. On a whim, they decide to leave it all behind, and go on a road trip to anywhere. They don’t have a real plan, but they get to where they need to be.

Here’s more at IMDb. All I can tell you is that we can’t watch another moment of Helix Studios Presents. We’d rather go back to streaming older Julia Child cooking shows. They have some great ones to stream for free. I highly recommend them. 

There is an accurate review for this TV series on IMDb that you’ll find helpful.

And Now Bradley Cooper Plays Gayface and writes Gay Content, Ryan Field Books

And Now Bradley Cooper Plays Gayface and writes Gay Content

I am so sick of seeing this kind of thing I could gag. Now it’s Bradley Cooper who’s going gay for pay, and he wrote the screenplay, too. 

So now Cooper can play gay for pay and talk about how the gay kissing scenes were so awkward for him. I’d like to know one thing. When are we, as gay men, going to wake up and get tired of this kind of appropriation. The straights control Hollywood and real gay men are terrified to come out for fear they will never work again. And they have every reason to be afraid. I love Matt Bomer. Good for Matt Bomer, but put him up against a gay actor like Russell Tovey. 

And please don’t tell me it’s just “acting.” If that were the case Streep would be playing the lead role in the life story of Rosa Parks. But we all know Streep would never do that. So we should do better, too. And please don’t use the argument that gay actors can’t play straight roles. We are a marginalized group and we were all straight at one time. So that argument doesn’t hold up either. 

C’mon Bradley Cooper. Didn’t you get enough attention with that shallow la lallow song? Give openly gay actors equality, too. What’s even worse is that Bradley Cooper wrote the screenplay. He actually wrote gay content and doesn’t see any shame in that at all. Imagine if a straight white man did this with black content. He would be canceled for life. I know dozens of gay writers who would have done anything for a chance to write this screenplay…but straight man Cooper gets it instead. You can spin it any which way you want, but that is wrong. 

According to this article, the story is about Leonard Bernstein and his closeted life as a gay man. Does Bradley Cooper even know first hand what that’s like? Has he ever been a closeted gay man with a high public profile? So far, I don’t think he has. If I’m wrong, I stand corrected. 

You may at this point be asking, “did you say, wife?” Yes, you read that correctly. In 1951, Bernstein married Costa Rican-American stage and television actress Felicia Cohn Montealegre. This was despite the fact that Bernstein was gay. Perhaps unsurprisingly, he left his wife in 1976.

Here’s more. It just continues to happen. And we…gay men…let it happen. Some us even praise it and defend it, which I will never understand. Why would gay men want to stab each other in the back? This entire project should be boycotted just like that awful movie about Stonewall. This is also what happens when straight people do gay content.

This Writer is Done with the Not So Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Jewface, and Cultural Appropriation, Ryan Field Books

This Writer is Done with the Not So Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Jewface, and Cultural Appropriation

When I was in college I took one of those history of film courses and I remember being shocked to learn that older films constantly used straight white actors to play Asian characters, straight white actors to play Native American characters, and they never thought twice about what they were doing. A few years later, a straight white woman named Annie Proulx wrote a gay story called Brokeback Mountain and they made a film with more straight white actors. It’s almost as though it’s a tradition for Hollywood and publishing to do this kind of cultural appropriation. 

And I know many of you will scream, “It’s acting, it’s only acting.” (The same goes for writing but I’m not getting into that right now.) But the problem with that is it’s about more than just acting. If it didn’t matter, then straight white actors would play black characters in blackface. But we all know that wouldn’t happen anymore. We know blackface is wrong. So why isn’t gayface and Jewface wrong, too? Just because we can do something doesn’t mean we should be doing it. 

In this opinion piece I’m linking to now, a writer named Wendy Rosenfield makes some excellent comments about what’s wrong with the TV show The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. And frankly, I have to agree with them all. She’s basically saying the same things I’ve been saying about straight actors playing gay for pay. 

Not so the Maisel ensemble. It’s not just the Jewface casting. Neither Rachel Brosnahan’s Midge; her parents the Weissmans, played by Tony Shalhoub and Marin Hinkle; nor Luke Kirby’s Lenny Bruce are real-life Jews. But in a way, it really is the Jewface casting.

Here’s more. Rosenfield goes on to give more examples and several more insightful opinions about the entire theme of this kind of cultural appropriation. 

The biggest problem I find is that you straight white people are so steeped in your own privilege, you can’t even see that you’re doing something wrong. And you’ll fight anyone to prove you have every right to steal someone’s culture. 

Tony Shaloub, who plays Jewface as Mrs. Maisel’s Jewish father, actually had the audacity to argue about the criticism of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and he was raised in a Lebanese Maronite Christian household. His defense of playing Jewface is weak at best. 

In spite of how often they still keep doing this kind of cultural appropriation, I believe it will end eventually. And those who did it will not go down in history very well.

As a Gay Man Why I'm Not Thrilled About Lil Nas X's Song About Gay Sex, Ryan Field Books

As a Gay Man Why I’m Not  Thrilled About Lil Nas X’s Song About Gay Sex

Lil Nas X is being nominated for several Grammy awards and I’m not too thrilled with it. He has a song out titled, Montero (Call Me By Your Name), which of course is based on that horrible movie where an older straight man has sex with a barely legal young gay kid. Even in this article, they refer to the book as a gay romance novel and it is NOT a gay romance novel. A romance has a happy ending, and this book was written by a straight man who would not know the first GD thing about gay romance or gay culture. He’s simply appropriating us.  

With that said, Lil Nas X clearly doesn’t mind the cultural appropriation of gay men. To be honest, I doubt he even understands it. 

Its title is a reference to the gay romance novel and 2017 film “Call Me By Your Name.” But its lyrics are less about love and more about lust, with lines including “romantic talking? You don’t even have to try” and “I’m not fazed, only here to sin.”

Here’s the rest.  You see what I mean…”Gay romance novel.” This is not gay romance. This is a straight male author exploiting gay sex. 

And I’m not the only one who feels this way. Here’s some backup. 

There’s this.  

There’s also this. 

But most of all, I find it very sad that other gay men think this was a great film. We have a long way to go.

Eddie Redmayne Says Playing a Transgender Role Was a Mistake, Ryan Field Books

 Eddie Redmayne Says Playing a Transgender Role Was a Mistake For Him

When this story was trending earlier this week you should have seen the straight people lose their minds.  “It’s acting, it’s only acting,” was the big reaction I kept seeing. And then there are always those geniuses who believe that if straights can’t play gayface then gay actors can’t play straight. They fail to realize that gay people (and all LGBTQ people) are part of a marginalized group, and also that all gay people WERE straight at one time or another. 

The bottom line is that they do not want to give up their straight privilege. That privilege is steeped so deeply into mainstream culture they will do anything to hold on to it. And it’s not just with LGBTQ people. They will praise a salve trader like Thomas Jefferson and make excuses for the fact that he actually sold human beings. The straight white privilege rules their lives and most of them don’t even know it. 

With that said, Eddie Redmayne “gets” it. He recently came out with a story where he said he playing a transgender character was a mistake. 

The actor “wouldn’t take it on now,” he told The Times in an interview published Sunday. “I made that film with the best intentions, but I think it was a mistake.”

Here’s more. In spite of the fact that he did such a wonderful job playing a trans character, at least he understands now. Just because you can do something doesn’t mean you should be doing it.

What Happens When Clueless Straight People Write LGBTQ Stories and Appropriate Gay Culture?

What Happens When Clueless Straight People Write LGBTQ Stories and Appropriate Gay Culture?

First of all, this does not include readers. I believe readers should read anything they want and there shouldn’t be limits. I love reading black authors like Toni Morrison and Maya Angelou. But I would NEVER, EVER write a book or story with the main focus on the black experience. That wouldn’t just be wrong of me, it would make me a clueless white privileged idiot. But just because I don’t write in that genre doesn’t mean I can’t read and enjoy and respect that genre. 

And I think the same goes for straight people who love to read about the gay or LGBTQ experience. You don’t have to be LGBTQ to enjoy reading LGBTQ books or stories. 

The problem is that there are some non-black writers writing books focused on the black experience, and there are more than a few straight writers writing books about LGBTQ experiences…especially gay men. We seem to be the main targets of these straight writers.  And the most interesting thing (and sad) is that readers don’t seem to mind. They don’t seem to find anything wrong with this kind of cultural appropriation. Maybe they don’t realize? 

In any event, I’m linking to a piece today that talks about how so much is lost whenever a straight writer writes about the LGBTQ experience.  It’s never authentic and there’s always a spin. I’ve actually read gay books by straight people that have made me gag. There’s nothing real about it. And trust me when I say this, gay people discuss this quietly behind the scenes. And no one likes it. We either just ignore it or learn to live with it. But that doesn’t make it any less offensive to us. In the same respect, I do think we’re starting to talk about it more openly now. AND, we’re starting to call people out whether they like it or not. As with every other fight we’ve fought, we have nothing to lose. 

As a queer, trans reader, I looked forward to seeing myself in their pages. But I was surprised to find that some LGBTQ-focused stories were reflecting not me, but a straight person’s imagination of me.

Here’s more. This is a fascinating piece and I’m going to revisit it again in the future. It’s well written and it gets right to the point. I know for a fact that I don’t need straight people writing my stories.

They Way Netflix Treats Gay Characters in "What if" and the New RomCom Movie "Single All the Way", Ryan Field Books

The Way Netflix Treats Gay Characters in “What if” and the New RomCom Movie “Single All the Way”

I will admit that there have been times as a writer when I’ve used gay characters that are stereotypical in gay romances. Not always, but at times. And that’s because there’s no way around it. There are certain stereotypes that fit certain gay men and I don’t think that’s a bad thing. In many ways, it’s a good thing. 

But I don’t do it all the time. And that’s because whenever I see a TV show or movie doing gay content the straight people who are doing the project always use the most irritating gay stereotypes. And even then, it’s never really accurate. They can’t even get that right. 

We’re watching the TV show on Netflix right now titled, “What if,” and Tony is just fast-forwarding the scenes with the gay characters. I don’t mind in the least. I not only find these gay characters annoying, but they are not very realistic at all. So with this TV show, they didn’t even get the gay stereotypes right. 

“Neo-noir social thriller What / If explores the ripple effects of what happens when acceptable people start doing unacceptable things,” reads Netflix’s official description. 

Here’s a link to more about the series. It’s not a bad series at all, and it’s a shame they ruined the gay characters the way they did. They could have been really great. 

Now I’m curious to see what Netflix does with the gay characters in this new RomCom, Single All the Way, coming out this year. I hope it’s halfway decent and not just more gay content from straight people that will make me gag. Whenever straight people try to do gay content, they never get it right. 

Netflix’s first gay rom-com is arriving this holiday season and the streaming service just shared the festive first look.

Here’s the link for more.  I’m not going to judge it until I see it.

Once Again Non-Gay Male Author Bethan Roberts' Novel Is Now a Film Because There are No Books By Gay Authors Out There

Once Again Non-Gay Male Author Bethan Roberts’ Novel Is Now a Film Because There are No Books by Gay Authors Out There

I’m going to start this post by asking you to imagine a white author coming from a place of white privilege writing a novel about black people, the black experience, and black relationships. Just think about that and think about how it would be received. Now think about a white author coming from a place of privilege writing about Asian people and writing an Asian story. I’m sure there are authors out there who could do this well, but that’s not the point. 

Just because you can do something well doesn’t mean you should be doing it. It’s called cultural appropriation with everything else, except with gay men. We are still being hijacked in the mainstream by straight authors, actors, and stories. Non-gay men are still writing our gay male stories. Even though I know hundreds of gay authors, it’s as though we don’t even exist. 

And they continue to do it. It’s been happening all my life, from Brokeback Mountain to Call Me by Your Name. In the meantime, millions of openly gay actors and authors are getting rejections for their mainstream projects…and the mainstream sees nothing wrong with that. 

Clearly, the author of this article sees nothing wrong with it. It’s a shame, too, because the content makes a few excellent points, but that entire piece is canceled out just by the fact that this is about a story about gay relationships…and they are calling it “gay-themed”… written by a woman and not a gay man. It’s time THAT changed. And someone should tell them.  

The adaptation of Bethan Roberts’ novel covers a period in recent English history – stretching from the 1950s to the 90s – when attitudes to homosexuality underwent significant change. What was once illegal, and supposedly scorned by right-thinking members of society, became accepted to the extent that, in 2014, same-sex marriage was recognised in law.

Here’s more about it. I won’t be watching this one. I think what bothers me most is that it continues to happen. More than 20 years later and we’re still getting recycled versions of Brokeback Mountain
