Changing Times

Gareth:

Hah! It certainly shows how the meaning of certain words and phrases changes over time, e.g., "Having a gay time .. wish you were here!"

Yes, I wondered about the "innocent friendship" angle in the Sponge Bob episode when he and Patrick adopt a baby clam and become "Daddy" Patrick and "Mommy" Sponge Bob. I begin to think Dr. Wertham was right when he wrote "Seduction of the Innocent" :)

Closet Homosexuality?

Sorry, I couldn't resist that title...

When Robin was introduced into the Batman comics there was an intimation that there was a homosexual relationship involved. Nowadays, it's SpongeBob and Patrick. It is a shame that people have to infer that any innocent friendship between guys must necessarily be gay. As boys, we just hung around each other and had nothing to do with girls -- the whole "cootie" thing, you know.

It seems to me that I had heard the "Village Voice" was the publication that had actually "outed" poor Tinky.

Not Thinking Of Consequences

This is a great example of a law that is ramrodded through a legislature without thought for the consequences. My daughter's PC has trouble accessing our own home WiFi network on occasion because of all the noise from the neighbors' unsecured routers! As a Michigan resident, I guess I'd better ensure that she knows enough to hook up to the CORRECT router.
