Are Living History Reenactors Homo Erotic?
I'm a talk radio junkie, and about a week ago the buzz on one of the shows I listen to has to do with some guy on CNN named Chris Matthews, (who I've never really heard of since I don't watch CNN.) Anyway Chris Matthews has allegedly called living history reenactors "homo erotic."
Now I admit I've led a bit of a sheltered life. I'm not sure I know what "homo erotic" means, but I know what "erotic" means. Did you know that back in the 1870s and 1880s, the bustle was considered very erotic? It was so men would wonder what was underneath it. And when I wear my bustle dresses in Tombstone, or at other Old West events, a lot of men take notice of me and tip their hats to me. And yes, I like it.
During the summer months, (which is like eight months of the year here in Arizona), I've started wearing madame outfits because it's just too danged hot to mess with corsets and petticoats. And yes, I do think madams had more fun than the proper ladies. Just my opinion though, however by Victorian standards I'm sure this outfit is very erotic.
Well, I still haven't found out what "homo erotic" means, but I'm sure Chris Matthews must be a complete and total moron since he obviously doesn't have a clue as to what living history is all about, but he probably hates us living historians for teaching the public about history in the first place. What is obvious is that the man is totally unprofessional since he shoots his mouth off without doing his research first.
My thought for the day.
