Is your car gay?

Homophobic men don't fear gays so much as they fear being perceived as gay themselves. That's why they tend to overdo the macho thing, and that's why TV and radio commercials for men's products and services are narrated by guys with overly masculine voices.

That's also why so many men with no practical need for them will buy pickup trucks or vehicles that can climb rocky, off-road hills. These dudes are deathly afraid that someone might see them as wimps.

Which brings us to this story in The New York Times today about so-called gay cars.
