do you know r. fitzgibbon?

There's this alarming notion in the gay community that prides itself on being fit, muscular. If you don't fit the stereotype, you are, to some extent, marginalized from that community. Don't fret, though, there are a plethora of "tribes" that you can fall under. Though, the criteria in itself is irrational and will crumble like the recently cancelled Looking. What constitutes a bear? A jock? A twink?

Is Ryan Fitzgibbon a twink?

Maybe. He fits the profile and has that elusive thigh gap (see above). It's very niche and you should capitalize on it.

He's a lithe man who is 6'4" (I assume, his LinkedIn profile doesn't state his height, it should start for curious people like myself), can probably consume insurmountable burgers and not gain a pound and most likely doesn't even have to get his A.P.C. raw Japanese denim altered because his "legs for days" is essentially a sample size.

You can most likely sport anything you wish with that welcoming smile of yours. You wear a quilted vest with such ease, a three-piece suit with such confidence and you hold a sandwich with such warmth like a new gay dad holding his adopted Vietnamese daughter for the first time.

I've come to respect Fitzgibbon for changing the discourse about what it means to be gay. As a current proprietor of issues 01-04 of Hello Mr., he's shifted the notion about what it means to be gay today. From being overtly sexualized in the past to a person today who can get married, can make great breakfast because it is a lost skill and is able to explore the idea of being vulnerable. He's also added a dose of ethnic backgrounds because they exist in this reality. Just saying.

Is it spring yet? Supposedly it's not according to Marnie The Dog.
