Regarding gay scholars who have their noses in the air:

It is too bad that a discussion of whether or not Foucault's body
could have been written in a much more complex and shifting
manner than in the unidirectional narrative in which it was written
degenerates into a discussion of whether the book contained
anything of value to the average scholar. I am sure, after all,
that there are lots of average scholars who might believe that to
problematize writing the body of a postmodern thinker who spent a
great deal of time philosophizing about the body is a challenging,
fascinating and rewarding task to take on. they don't have to have their
noses in the air to be interested in this, and they don't have to be gay.
