A lawsuit was recently filed charging that 53 users of the popular bittorrent file sharing service were actually, in fact, pirating gay pornography. I’ve always suspected pirates were gay — with the puffy shirts, decorative birds and movies featuring Orlando Bloom, but this was the first time I had hard evidence that pirates actually are gay.
Gay pirates sully the traditional use for the Internet: straight porn. Just knowing that somewhere out there a gay pirate getting his “timbers shivered” via a viewing of You’ve Got Male diminishes the sanctity of my own screening of Buffy the Vampire Layer.
It’s “peer-to peer” not “queer-to-queer.” That rhymes, so it’s probably true.
