  1. I have no problem with this type of self-promotion*. Congrats, David, on the good reviews.

    (*In fact, I prefer the honesty of this self-promotion to trying to cover it up with some other message. You done good, enjoy it!)Report

    My thoughts are the same as Jonathan and Nob above; congrats on the positive ink.

    As for the FP issue, FWIW my personal opinion is this: Not only do I support David’s self promotion here, but if any of the other League contributors find that they have had positive reviews by both a gynophobic gay man and a femme lesbian for their erotic lesbian documentary, this goes for them as well. I will not play favorites.Report

    What they said.

    (Although the word nerd in me feels the need to point out that gynophobia is “fear of women” and eurotophobia is “fear of vaginas”. So, the first reviewer sounds more eurotophobic than gynophobic to me.)Report

    Thank you all for your kind words. In addition to being a troll for sympathy, the last graph was a passive-aggressive coded message to a friend at the brink of a big decision who could use a little encouragement. I see that the message was received. 😉

    I feel like I already have, but if I have not, the time may now be ripe for telling the story of the time the room full of 200 gay black and latino women found out the film they had just watched, an intimate, tender, and explicit film about two young black women was, in fact, directed by a middle-aged, straight, white man.

    It was awkward to say the least.Report
