The appeal of [Queer Eye for the Straight Guy] has nothing to do with stereotypes. It has to do with the way the show fulfills a desire that has come to be almost forbidden in our culture: the desire to be taken care of.
Queer Eye for the Straight Guy was as polished as Carson [Kressley's] fingernails and as groomed as Kyan [Douglas'] expertly coiffed 'do. Watercooler TV-in-waiting, it's this season's must-have accessory.
