Top Ramin

So what exactly has been the fallout for writer Ramin Setoodeh, whose Newsweek article about how unconvincing gay actors were in playing straight roles caused a firestorm a few weeks ago? He's just landed a new job at a magazine that isn't going under -- People.

"At the end of the day, I've been doing this job long enough to know that you judge people on the bulk of their work, the totality of their work," People editor Larry Hackett told The Observer this morning.

Using this logic, shouldn't I be editor in chief of The New Yorker by now? I've only made fun of retards a couple times ...

He looks like he's holding a dildo! He is gay, right?

Well... People is fluff at best and near-tabloid at its worst, so it is actually a rather apt hiring. Newsweek was too deep for him, as far as actually having to be coherent goes...

The Editor in Chief of People should be aware that many publicists will no longer allow their clients to be interviewed by Ramin Setoodeh.

If there are quite a few closeted actors 'out there', doesn't that just show that GAY actors CAN (and DO) play STRAIGHT roles quite well.

I guess the lesson is that it pays to be a self-loathing gay douche bag. Nice.
