    After reviewing this diarist's previous work (and his/her response to inquiries on this thread), do you still think the anti-gay conclusion to the diary is a defensible resort to Twain-ish irony—rather than, for example, a basically accurate admission of homophobic bigotry?

    Which is to say: given the larger context of this person's output, do you still think that the above ending is "rhetorical," such that the diary is unobjectionable?

      And thank you for your non-inflammatory comment.

      I plead guilty to putting the most charitable spin on the diarist's work.

      I am unfamiliar with the diarist's previous work, however, if the diarist claims that the story is true and not a humorous exaggeration, then from his/her own mouth he/she is condemned and I withdraw my previous charitable reading.

      I apologize to all who were confused or bothered by my overgenerous assumptions.
