Might as Well Be Me
Every day, I encounter one or more academic studies arguing that this or that historical figure were homosexual.
Then it occurred to me that, should I ever become famous, someone will write an article or monograph or book arguing that I were homosexual.
Then it occurred to me that I won't even have to become famous; there are so many academics who want to argue that someone were homosexual that none of us will be ignored. Sooner or later, in the case of each person for whom there is material to be interpretted, one of those academics will get around to arguing that the person were homosexual.
Then it occurred to me that I might be able to get a publication in a journal of sociology or of gender studies by arguing that I were homosexual. I wonder how that would look on my CV.
