Reichen Lehmkuhl Defends "The A List New York" Because We Are All Insecure And They Are Fabulous!

Oh Blamche, pleeeeeeease

“We’re a very insecure community about the way that we are portrayed or the way we’re thought about by straight people. We’ve sort of been beholden to the way straight people think about us, and we let that control our community a lot of the time. … If you think we’re a bad representation of the gay community, it’s like, every gay person knows … we all know the way these seven guys, including myself, act on the show are an accurate representation of the way a lot of gay people act.” – AfterElton

It’s amazing how America’s ADD List powerbottom Lehmenkul tries to give the tacky bitchefest of a train wreck a “Gee, you can’t criticize us or else it means you’re insecure.” excuse.

I dont suppose that Lehmenkul could ever believe that we think he’s just a douche and we’re being honest in our opinions of you. Personally I’m not worried about how others see the gay community when I say that some of the guys on this show seem one career step above hustlers (Not counting Austin who obviously is a hustler). It is just a judgement call based on what it is you and Logo are putting out there. After all one look at Logo’s programming just proves we are all vapid queens or drag queens.

Maybe it’s just me and I’ve hung out in the wrong bars or something, but I’ve never met a gay guy in real life, let alone 7 at one time *shudder* who would fit in on that horrifyingly, soul-murdering awful, gay minstrel show.
