brackets my dear.  brackets.

yes, dear- brackets.  i know what they are.  i just don't get what your motive was in using them because in doing so you changed the intention of his words- and then built up a giant missive based on that.

well, let's ask him then.

and it's brackets.

brackets vs. parentheses

    Brackets [ ] are used to enclose explanatory material inserted into a quotation by someone other than the original writer or person being quoted, parentheses ( ) when the original writer or person being quoted is making the addition: “Hai [yes],” he answered when the telephone operator asked if he spoke Cantonese; “Hai (that means yes) was my answer when the operator asked if I spoke Cantonese,” he proudly told me.

i think it's pretty clear from the context of the rest of the paragraph that he didn't intend any slight toward feminine gays.

if still in doubt, just look here:

Rest of the paragraph?  That was the end of the paragraph.  As for the picture, that's irrelevant and does not bring any context.  If you want to rehash everything, we can.  Wouldn't it be better to wait on regan?

From a young person's perspective I think Jaser would be a fascinating interview. I bet he has some insights and stories people might be interested in knowing about.

Absolutely Auntie D. As a number of people here know, Jaser could offer the most revealing insights.

For legal reasons, he would have to get signed permission from his parents.  And, of course, he'd have to be willing.  Posting so wisely (but pseudonymously) in this forum and going public at his age in a national magazine are two extremely different things.  My personal opinion is that it would cause him more stress than any of us should have to undergo.  That is a sad reality.

Am I being dense or is "going public" in Poz magazine wildly different than going public in Vanity Fair?  I've only ever seen a copy of Poz in the confines of a doctor's office, and even then only an HIV specialist.  I mean, yeah there is a web site and all so it's not non-public exactly but it's certainly less risky than posing in Honcho.
