    Why is this place called 'the closet'?

    Anyone else find it a little insulting? Like being gay is bad and we should all hide in a closet.
    Why not just call it "GLBT Area" or something? why The Closet?

  2. Well all the other sub-forums have interesting names...not like "Home Decorating/Cooking Forum"...they call it "The Great Indoors"...

    It's like, everyone in here was "in the closet" at one point in their life. I never thought of it as insulting at all. :o

    If you get all butt hurt over the title of a sub-forum, you are not long for this world. You might as well lock yourself in a room, and never come out, because things in the real world are much worse then what you see as offensive.

    And "The Asylum" is a good name for people with emotional problems? LOL. Basically telling them they need to be put in a padded room in a looney bin? I think the name is fine, and kinda fun.

    I thought that we voted that name into existence? Or did I just dream that up??

    If we did vote, I don't think that I voted for The Closet. I remember thinking that 'The Closet' wasn't practical because it would confuse people when we listed ourselves as OTCC {ie., "are they saying Off Topic Comic Crew or Off Topic Closet Crew :dunno: "}

    I never cared for the name and did not vote for it, but it was pushed by someone that isn't a Moderator here anymore and I'm not even sure he's a member anymore. :rolleyes:

    Meh, I like it. Reminds me of...

    SCENE II: Karen's Penthouse, Karen's Closet
    (KAREN and JACK are in the door to KAREN's closet. The lights are off. JACK is carrying a pink shopping bag.)

    JACK: Oh, my god, Karen. I'm so excited. I've never been in your closet before.
    KAREN: Well, don't get your hopes up, honey. You'll just be disappointed.
    [KAREN TURNS ON THE LIGHT. THE CLOSET IS HUGE, WITH MULTIPLE ROOMS, A COUCH, A SITTING TABLE...]
    JACK: Oh, my god. If my closet were like this, I never would have come out of it.
    KAREN: Oh, Lord. There's nothing here. I mean, why do we have to do this?
    JACK: Hey. Grace hit me up to give clothes to charity, too. It was hard, but I dug deep, and I gave away two bags... of Will's favorite sport coats.
    KAREN: Yeah, but I mean, look around, Jack. What-- What could I possibly give away? [KAREN PULLS A SLIDING DRESS RACK OUT OF THE WALL]
    JACK: [PULLING A PAIR OF GREEN PANTS OFF A RACK] I'll take this. The color really brings out my ass.
    KAREN: Oh, come on. Focus! We're not here for you, we're here for the homeless.
    JACK: They are so lucky. I hope they know how lucky they are.
    KAREN: All right, well... Let's just jump in. Ok. Here's a sweater. [DROPS THE SWEATER INTO JACK'S BAG] Here's a hat. [DROPS IT INTO THE BAG] Here's my arm! Here's my heart! I can't do this! [KAREN THROWS HERSELF ONTO THE COUCH]
    JACK: Karen, of course you can do this.
    KAREN: No, I can't. It's like giving away your own children. No, it's harder. You can always have another kid, but Hermes only made this print once!
    JACK: Now, give me one good reason why a man can't go out in a nice pillbox hat? [JACK PUTS ON THE HAT AND STANDS IN FRONT OF THE MIRROR] Hello, reason. [LOOKING INSIDE THE HAT] Oh, my God, look. There are actually pills in here.
    KAREN: Come on, put that away and help me out. Every item has such sentimental value. I mean... Take this dress. [KAREN PULLS A DRESS OFF THE RACK] Stan gave it to me on our honeymoon. To this day, every time I wear it, he can't keep his hands off of me. Sayonara. [KAREN DROPS THE DRESS INTO THE BAG.]
    ROSARIO: [ENTERING] You have a phone call.
    KAREN: Hey! Don't just barge in here barking orders at me. I'm in the middle of the hardest thing I've ever had to do!
    ROSARIO: It's your pharmacist.
    KAREN: [TO JACK] Honey, I have to take this.
    JACK: It's all right. I can handle it.
    KAREN: Oh, you can handle it? Interesting. You know, I have spent most of my adult life and millions of my husband's dollars learning about fashion. What are your qualifications, hmm?
    JACK: Umm... I'm gay.
    KAREN: Oh, honey. What would I do without you?
    JACK: You never have to worry about that. [JACK AND KAREN REACH OUT TO HUG]
    KAREN: Oh! [TURNING AWAY FROM JACK] Eww!
    JACK: I'll start with the Puccis and Guccis and work my way to the Fioruccis and Susan Luccis. [JACK OPENS THE SHOE CLOSET. THERE ARE RACKS FILLED WITH SHOES] Once I was lost, but now I'm found. [JACK KNEELS RESPECTULLY ONTO ONE KNEE.]
