I hadn’t read John Weidman‘s “Are You A Homo?“, a 1971 National Lampoon piece, for eons. And then I found it this morning. It’s a snapshot of an urban hipster attitude that wanted to fool around with emerging gay militancy (acknowledge and legitimize but at a distance) and decided to mock the term “homo,” which is one of the funniest terms ever used by straight society. To think that old-school jocks used it with impugnity, without a trace of irony. Weidman’s best: “There are hundreds of homos who lead normal, happy lives.”
