OUT: Real Gays. IN: Fake Lesbians.

They’re everywhere these days:

Just one day after the author behind a popular Syrian lesbian blog admitted to being a married, American man named Tom MacMaster, the editor of the lesbian news site Lez Get Real, with the tag­line “A Gay Girl’s View on the World,” acknowledged that he is also a man.
“Paula Brooks,” editor of Lez Get Real since its founding in 2008, is actually Bill Graber, 58, a retired Ohio military man and construction worker who said he had adopted his wife’s identity online. Graber said she was unaware he had been using her name on his site.

These incidents have aroused strong suspicion that “Amanda Marcotte” is actually a fictional character created by Ace of Spades.

UPDATE: An icky plot twist noted by Bryan Preston at PJ Tatler: “Two straight men find out they have been flirting with each other as fake lesbians. . . .  There’s a kind of justice in that, wouldn’t you say?” Kind of.

UPDATE II: Responding to inquiries, Andrew Sullivan has just issued a statement confirming that he is, in fact, “a complete homo.”
