|Super Butch isnt so convincing for me, but here is a shot.|
She has known since I started writing the blog that I was subjecting being gay and Mormon and trying to make the two work. She knows I have gone through a life of active, RM, BYU dude, Mormon Performer/entertainer/writer and now husband and father all while being homosexual. This was not a surprise to her. But the title of the blog was.
First things first. I am a little concerned that she hasn't been reading my stuff, though this may not be so huge because she is helping me edit the book coming out next year.
I think its just seeing Gay and Mormon in a place of predominance on the blog. Maybe she thought it would be on the second page at least. The problem having the subject matter be on the second page is that who on earth would know what the blog was about. There isn't much room for subtlety. I added Priesthood Men onto the title because I wanted potential readers to know in what direction I was leaning - toward the church.
I am not well know enough to just use my name - like Oprah! CAL THOMPSON! just doesn't have the oomph to pull it off. My book will come out, and that may help as its about Homosexuals in the church, and the church for homosexuals. It is based on a lot of my own experiences. Maybe then I will get to call the blog something less descriptive, like Happy Mormon Men. ...ummmm, no. How about "Thompson Time!
I don't know. Maybe I'll just stick to Oprah.
