Armistead Maupin Quote

Maybe Bill O’Reilly, Glenn Beck and other right-wing propagandists will dispute this statement.  After all, their books are never shelved in a “Men’s Studies” section.  Poor Bill, Glenn and their pals have to cope when their writing is put on conspicuous display in the front of the store with the bestsellers.  It’s their job to beat.

Yes, I’ve thought of Ann Coulter and Nancy Grace.  Let’s not go off-topic.

If you want to know who the oppressed minorities in America are, simply look at who gets their own shelf in the bookstore:  A black shelf, a women’s shelf and a gay shelf.
