The other day I was listening to NPR, and it was one of those game shows, you know, "Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me" or something. Here's what happened. Apologies for my bad memory.

Host: So-and-so, Playboy's Miss Whatever-month-it-was is Playboy's first openly blank Playboy bunny.
Contestant:[no hesitation] Gay.
Host: No, Jewish.

To me this means that the term "open" when use in reference to a person is now strongly connected to being queer. I wouldn't say I find it odd, just interesting. Anyone else?

I'm going to send this over to Sexual Ethics & Politics. I think it'll get a better response over there, and it just seems like it would fit better over there, all right?
