Catherine MacKinnon vs. gay dudes

This from a panel discussion after the New York screening of pornodocumentary Inside Deep Throat, which included Catherine MacKinnon*:
...MacKinnon did her thing, claiming that the film we had just watched was promoting the acceptance of rape. At one point, however, her righteous zeal became unhinged when she claimed that it was not possible to do deep throat safely, that it was a dangerous act that could only be done under hypnosis. "What's so funny?" she snapped as the audience rippled with mirth. Todd Graff's hand shot up - "I can do it," he said, and the room echoed with a chorus of gay men going "me too!" (Gigi Grazer - wife of Brian - later told Graff to stop bragging and that she could do it better than him and had the rocks on her fingers to prove it. Touché).

*MacKinnon was a participant in the panel, though not in the actual movie.
