Another one? Are there NO real lesbians on the internet?
(And be sure to read to the end of clickity… there’s a bonus twist at the end)
UPDATE II: More lesbians! Mark Steyn, Jonah Goldberg, Mark Krikorian, John Derbyshire and a host of Tim Blair readers out themselves, along with our own
Bingbing Amethyst Thunder.
UPDATE III: At Reason.com, “Love in the Time of Sockpuppets”
It’s not news that the Internet is rife with role-playing. Take all the masquerades of real life, add anonymity, throw in some viral marketers and alternate reality games and lonelygirl15s for flavor, and you get a network that can’t go a month without grabbing your shirt, slapping your face, and screaming DOUBT IS YOUR FRIEND. I like to think the long-term social effect will be a general increase in skepticism. In the short term, I feel like I tuned in to ‘The L Word’ and got ‘Mission:Impossible’ instead.
In that vein, I’d like to take the opportunity to confess that my name is not spot, and I am not a dog. It’s just that doris_the_quokka doesn’t have quite the same ring to it.
Anyone else have confessions? Add them in comments.
