Like many gay men who grew up in the 80's, I had a big crush on Kirk Cameron (a.k.a. Mike Seaver on the sitcom "Growing Pains"). So now that he has grown into a self-righteous bigot, proclaiming that homosexuality is "detrimental and ultimately destructive," I feel betrayed. And if the Jesus he so frequently speaks on behalf of is perched on a cloud listening to the wayfaring former-sitcom star's remarks, I can only imagine that he might want to put him over his knee and teach him a lesson. Perhaps it's just a phase for Kirk - nothing that a few growing pains to the backside can't help him overcome. CHEESECAKE BOYS series The Cheesecake Boys series grew out of my fascination with pin-up art from the 40’s and 50’s. It was a more innocent time (at least on the surface), and I love the elaborate scenarios that artists like Gil Elvgren and Art Frahm concocted in order to justify disrobing their subjects. A loose nail, a doorknob, or a brisk wind would all work in a pinch, resulting in hapless models accidentally exposing their unmentionables. I’m interested in exploring how gender roles were reinforced by these artistic expressions of sexuality. It intrigues me that it was considered sexy for a woman’s skirt to be ripped off before a crowd of oglers, while the male pin-up was only exposed when he wanted to be. Times certainly have changed! Men may have had a free pass on wardrobe malfunctions in the good old days, but my Cheesecake Boys are here to even the score.
