As you may have read or heard by now, a Minnesota Viking player "mooned" the end zone crowd at Lambeau Field in Green Bay over the weekend. He simulated a moon. Hell, it was fuckin too cold to pull down his tights and long johns to really do it.
Intentionally or unintentionally, mooning has been part of our exhibitionist culture. When I mount my Harley barebutt, I am unintentionally mooning. You see intentional mooning all the time at Gay Pride events and parades. It always gets the crowd going. After all, a great butt sometimes needs air to breathe. Ha, Ha.
Adolescent male fans have been doing this since the 60's I assume to shock opposing players at sporting events, be it football, soccer, whatever the contact or team sport. It does get everyone's attention if only for a brief period.
I can't see all the fuss. Mooning is something that sends a message. It can be an icebreaker and it does no harm. It is definitely a come on and to some, a symbol of bad taste. But hell, a nice butt is something to behold. If you have gone to any movies lately, the male ass has been prominently displayed.
On another note, I have just stumbled upon a news item from A&E cable. A made for cable movie, "Gays on Strike" will begin production shortly for airing on that network. It is described as a comedic telefim about gay marriage. Quoting the source, ""gays on Strike" will focus on a young gay couple who accidently start a strike joined by everyh gay person in America and become poster children for gay marriage." Sounds like a great avenue to promote our cause in a purely light hearted way.
Speaking of hearts, it is never too early to start thinking about Valentine's Day. I will be sharing some ideas in future blogs for you guys to heat up your VD celebrations. Stay tuned.
