    I disagree about Char and...

    "tween gay boys"?????

    I haven't seen any of the Threads clips but either they have a lot of gay male teens as contestants or that's a pretty homophobic presumption. :eek:

    Nothing homophobic at all. It doesn't take any special gaydar to know that some of the male contestants are gay. Check it out yourself:

    Straights have become accustomed to adult gays in the media, gay pride parades and in their own family experiences. Twinks not so much. Note the controversies that have occurred with high school age gays, such as with prom dates and LGBTQ support groups/clubs. Now we're dealing with pre-twinks and I suspect a fair number of straights may find that disturbing. It will definitely make homophobes question whether being gay is an adult lifestyle choice.

    There's an excellent movie that explores this topic: The Blossoming of Maximo Oliveros. It's about a 12-year-old Filipino gay boy who falls in love with a policeman. The full movie is available on YouTube. Click on the CC for the English subtitles. He also sews clothes. :) The lead actor was 12 when the film was made.

    Yup, I pretty much agree with that. Seems like a lot of home audience was rooting for
    Kini

    Once we got past the drama of a few weeks ago, the 2 finale episodes were pretty anti-climatic.

    So --

    Your thoughts on the final collections, etc.?

    In seasons past, there have been designers whose work made me wish I had the body type to wear their clothes, but this year, I turned to my husband and said "Your wallet is safe."

    There were a few pieces I admired from afar, but nothing (except for a couple of pieces of Amanda's jewelry) that I would have wanted to buy, if I could afford that sort of thing.

    Good luck to Sean, because after binge-watching Viktor on PR All-Stars, and this season, I'm bored with the fringe thing already.

    I was really bummed that Kini's collection wasn't better. I was pulling for him, but didn't think he deserved the win with those clothes.

    Out of the top 2, I really thought Amanda was going to win. I really liked her jewelry and how her clothing clearly has her stamp on it.

    I thought it was one of the weakest seasons we've seen and the finale was pretty meh.

    Nothing got me really excited, though I liked most of Kini's stuff thru the season. I don't think the denim should be his focus. I hope he expands.
