37. "RE: Boy Meets Boy - Who is the stra..."
OK Here's my summation on this whole BMB thing...

When I first read on Yahoo News several months ago about this new reality show "Boy Meets Boy", I thought it was kind of a cute idea. They told in the Yahoo story that there would be straight guys in the group. I was OK with that.

When I watched the first episode and saw how hot all the guys on the show were, I was still OK with some of them being straight. Nice eye candy.

As the show continued and I realized that nearly half of the "mates" were straight I began to get angry with the producers for stacking the deck. Then when I figured out how the producers started to "pair up" the straight guys to be SURE that James would have a straight mate in the last selection I got really angry. This was unfair. I felt that the producers were playing a mean trick on James and they were playing the game unfairly, especially knowing that James (and we the audience) had become attached to some of the guys.

I feel very sorry for James having been put in the position he was placed in. however in stepping back and looking at this whole "Boy Meets Boy" phenominan... I believe the result of this show goes WAY beyond the producers objective of making a successful reality TV show.

I don't believe that I am overstating it when I say that BMB has done more to dispel the stereotypes about gay males to a mass audience more than anything in history. Let's face it... even us gay males with our gaydar turned on overdrive don't really know who the final straight mate will be.

Back in episode 2 James eliminated Jim and Paul and Marc. I was SURE that Jim and especially Paul were both gay (I was wrong) and that Marc was straight (he was gay) So on episode 2 I was 0 for 3.

In REAL reality, BMB isn't really about dating, or finding a relationship or fooling a gay guy... Its purpose (not by design) has been to break the division between straights and gays.

As a gay male that was in the closet until the age of 29 I personally want to thank James and all of the mates for bringing the straight / gay dividing line down to zero. I hope that James finds a real mate is has a great life.

I donít believe that there is any way that we as a gay community can ever thank James enough for going thru what he was put thru by the producers.

Whatever the outcome on next weeks show... we all win!

Thanks again James. I for one really appreciate what you did.
