Beware, though. Different strokes for different folks. If I had seen that headline and photo, I would have scrolled past as quickly as possible. I mean, no disrespect to the writer involved, whom I don’t even know, but I would have assumed one of two things.

  1. The piece is satire, which doesn’t interest me at all.
  2. The piece is something horror genre, which also doesn’t interest me.

I guess my point is that there is no one style of headline and photo that will attract everyone.

Writer. Runner. Marine. Airman. Former LGBTQ and HIV activist. Former ActUpNY and Queer Nation. Polyglot. Middle-aged, uppity faggot.
