In a satirical Op-Ed piece appearing in Sunday's New York Times, Seinfeld co-creator and writer Larry David, lampooned straight male moviegoers who have remarked that they will not see Brokeback Mountain because they don't want to witness two gay cowboys in love. In the piece, David represents himself as one of them, writing, "Who's to say I won't become enamored with the whole gay business? Let's face it, there is some appeal there. I know I've always gotten along great with men. ... And gay guys always seem like they're having a great time. At the Christmas party I went to, they were the only ones who sang. Boy that looked like fun. I would love to sing, but this weighty, self-conscious heterosexuality I'm saddled with won't permit it. I just know if I saw that movie, the voice inside my head that delights in torturing me would have a field day. 'You like those cowboys, don't you? They're kind of cute. Go ahead, admit it, they're cute. You can't fool me, gay man. Go ahead, stop fighting it. You're gay! You're gay!' Not that there's anything wrong with it." On Arianna Huffington's liberal blog, huffingtonpost.com, one writer wrote, "My opinion is much the same, gays don't bother me, I just don't understand why there is this new push towards coming out, in your face, mainstreamification."
