I agree. I think it was the shift from GI Joe to Pokemon. Once the kids got ahold of Pokemon and Magic cards (instead of baseball) we subliminally told the kids it was okay to be queer. From there this world of warcraft stuff gave too much to think about in the wee hours.
Oh stick the joystick in your butthole this is fun and then the girls enjoyed getting the guys to do this too. Video games, excess reefer smoking and demasculinity go hand in hand.
