13. I'm Queer, and I agree with Julie Millam
Julie Millam says, ""To me, that's not a reality show about gay people".

And she is correct.

"Queer Eye" is a hit because it re-inforces straight society's views of gay men -- that we are all "fabulous", and that we are all mincing, lisping interior designers who have a flair for color coordination and who know how to accesorize, etc. etc, etc.

Nothing for "real he-men" to get threatened about. "Naw," thinks the average straight guy, "I ain't like those boys."

One more way in which straight society tries to pigeonhole us queer folks.

And we buy it! Think it is "reality"! Incredible!
