People seem to love Neil Patrick Harris. Straight people. Gay people. Grandmas. Your average Joes. They all love NPH as he's affectionately called. Why don't I get it?
I don't hate NPH, I just don't get the fascination. I don't think he's all that funny. He's not a great musical talent. He's an average looking guy who seems to have a stick up his butt much of the time. Is it because he's a safe gay? Or a gateway gay? He's the gay people start with before they accept Nathan Lane and Harvey Fierstein.
So, NPH is our representation, huh? He's the image of most of us in the LGBT (insert any letters here so no one is offended or left out). An average Joe.
I guess I can accept that. Mr. Leather Fire Island doesn't really represent me anymore than RuPaul does. But really? NPH? Doogie Howser? They don't come much more vanilla than that. I hope he's at least wearing a leather thong.
