Identity Politics Uber Alles

Just a note on the diversion of our culture. Here is the Wiki page for the great novelist Allen Drury. What is the single longest section? Advise & Consent? Historical References? How He Worked? His Influence Washington and Political Literature? All fine guesses but, sadly, in our world of identity politics, it’s “Gay Characters.”

Even more to the point, the section acknowledges in its second paragraph that “gay characters are not common in Drury’s books…”

So, Wiki author/editor, why did you spend so much space writing about them??????

Sheesh, you can’t make this stuff up…

In defense of Wiki, someone seems aware that something is a little amiss, though they don’t do anything about it.
