Sex With Black Men

October 26th, 2010

Inspired by HIV-positive black gay men to get the Bayard Rustin Project, a District campaign against AIDS (Amanda Hess, 10/08/10), The Most Epic News Correction Of 2010: Reporter’s Disturbing Sexual Fetish Revealed As Untrue (The Village Voice 10/12/10), Howard Kurtz finds there are news nuggets in the tough, often tacky blog world — Correction of the year (Washington Post 10/18/10), and Chatological Humor: Monthly with Moron ( 10/26/10; Gene also includes a description of the previous “best correction” record holder).

“This blog post originally said that one in three black men who have sex with me is HIV positive. In fact, the statistic applies to black men who have sex with men.” – Amanda Hess,


It’s amazing how much of a difference one letter can make,

And Amanda’s missing “n” takes the cake.

Then again, maybe it was a slip of the Freudian variety,

Or an attempt to obtain more hits through notoriety.

(Stop what you’re thinking–don’t be so course;

I meant website hits, of course.)

In any case, Hess wins the prize for Best Correction

(…And I hope that she’s using protection).

PS to Amanda:

You look so innocent in that picture you’re smiling on,

I feel guilty for joining everybody else in piling on.

Sorry for being such a suggestive jerk,

But I really do like your work.
