[Re: “Ken Comes Out,” July 23]
Ken is “partner” of the most famous doll: Is that basis for “outing” him? Hmmm?
Until bigoted people accept us queers (ie: you and me), outing may only portray us as lifeless dolls. We are more than haircuts and accessories–we have feelings dammit. . . . Just how is Ken supposed to share his feelings? Hmmm?
You know, outing can be taken the wrong way. Perhaps Ken needs that cock ring–you are so insensitive–damn you! Just spare me a column about Bert and Ernie. How sad that would be.
