“This is my favorite IG account,” someone wrote in response to a recent post.
Thank you. I want you to know I saw that. I see the positive comments and DMs (a lot of them anyway). Affectionate. Supportive. Appreciated (by me).
Obviously there are comments and DMs I appreciate less. Who are these people? On my page? What backwards-ass, Stone Age values country did they crawl out of? The U.S.?
I won’t be disappearing (too many cool things to repost). The ability to comment likely will.
I’m not concerned for myself. I can’t be “bullied” in this space. I have too much power. “Delete. Block. Deactivate.” Etc.
But I take seriously the possibility of queer kids visiting here, recently out of the closet or exploring the idea… I don’t want them exposed to bullshit.
On a related note… I’m out. Of PB. Officially.
Not bec of static on social media (although that has centered the issue). I just don’t want to play straight characters. Their stories have been told (and told).
So. No more Michael. If you were a fan of the show, hoping for additional seasons… I understand this is disappointing. I’m sorry.
If you’re hot and bothered bec you fell in love with a fictional straight man played by a real gay one…
That’s your work. – W.M.
