How Gay is Details Magazine?

We know that this is an issue we've broached before, but we feel that it's time for a re-visit. While GQ has the market cornered on the frat-brother-turned-investment-banker market, Details is a bit more elusive with whom, exactly, it's aimed at. The younger brother to Conde Nast's man-glossy just released their November issue, and the cover is a shirtless picture of model David Gandy (left). The issue -- which excuses its liberal exploitation of fleshy torsos by deeming this a fitness edition -- does not simply cause us to lift an arched brow simply because of the heavy, heavy implementation of fit male bodies (starring celebrity appearances from Marky Mark, Marc Jacobs, D'Angelo, David Beckham, and Alexander Skaarsgard). No, there is also lots of actual gay content in the magazine. For example, in the fitness portfolio, there is an entire section titled "Gay is the New Normal." Is that some sort of subliminal message? Then there's a full story about women who settle down with two or more men, called "Modern Family" (though, to be honest, there isn't much gay sex happening in that story -- but still.) And to seal the deal, the back page is an interview with our newly outed brother Zachary Quinto. Let's just say. Details, you're really, really, really gay. You're, like, suspiciously gay. You're that kid in high school who everyone knows is gay but them -- you know, the one who takes ballet and is the star of the musicals? Why are you hiding, little guy? Come out and play with us -- be who you were always meant to be. It gets better, remember? Or are you just a Scientologist? In that case, we'll back off.
