All TV Weathermen Are Gay

That’s what my partner and I say to each other, especially whenever we travel and notice yet another local TV weatherman pinging our gaydar. We both know that it’s not true of course, but it is fun seeing the local news in a strange town and suddenly being confronted by a television meteorologist who appears to confirm our theory. It doesn’t help that our pathetic little stereotype is support by the fact that one of Tucson’s more popular TV weathermen is, in fact, gay. And neither does this clip from 1978:

Doesn’t anybody teach history anymore?
