The Sexist

The Metro Weekly Man V. The Blade Man

In this week's cover story, I examine the cultural relevance of D.C.'s competing LGBT publications, Metro Weekly and the Washington Blade (now the D.C. Agenda). Are you a Metro Weekly man? Or are you a Blade man? Or are you not an upper-middle-class middle-aged gay man who lives in Northwest Washington D.C., and therefore largely ambivalent? File your allegiances in the comments.

    MW was considered by me to be more of an entertainment publication, not a hard news source and thats the way the publisher presented it. On the other hand the former Blade like to think themselves as a hard news source, but was not. I considered the Blade to be a JOKE!

    Your demographic list omits something. WHITE. I don't know how; your illustrator pointed it out very clearly.

    The one bright side of the Blade shutting down is not having to see Peter Rosenstein's drivel commentaries wasting ink and trees.
