Julie Burchill: 'Some Of My Best Friends Are...' Watch

JB, pictured recently at a favoured haunt of old drunks in Brighton (& Hove).
Has any profession ever been so smugly stitched up by men? Some of my best friends are gay (my best gay friend is a former fashion designer, more of which fascinating paradox later), but the sort of gynophobic gay man who is generally drawn to fashion feels this way not from a desire to gild the lily, but to gut it... 

Julie Burchill, Why I Hate Pooves Fashion, The Sunday Times.

Change the scratched record, love.

  1. Ahhhh. Such a useful phrase: "Some of my best friends are..." Rather like: "I'm not racist/sexist/homophobic, BUT". You just know what is coming next.
