I'm absolutely 100% on board on being honest and exposing the hypocrisy and overall assholeness (is that even a real word?) of someone, but when it turned into spreading private details on his personal life I just thought the one being exposed as the biggest hypocritical asshole was the guy writing it. It still makes it way more interesting than the usual liner notes, where everything is amazing and you can't even tell if it was really written by the guy who signed it or somebody in charge of PR, that's for sure.
I would absolutely agree if he'd outed Vanderhoof whilst he was still in the closet, but that ship sailed long ago, (pardon the mixed metaphors), and it seemed like he offered the 'revelation' about his relationship with the teacher in order to illustrate just how foolish Kurt was in returning to the far less tolerant Pacific North West from freewheeling gay-friendly SF in order to pursue that
If you read the whole piece he doesn't paint himself or his bandmates in the most flattering of ways either, and is disarmingly honest about their stupid drunken teenage behaviour. Amusingly, he admits he can barely recall any
details of the recording of those songs, yet somehow he still managed to perfectly channel his eighteen year old self and vividly recreate the world that he & his friends once inhabited.
Of course, there's definitely an element of him sticking the boot in too which is
pretty distasteful & immature, but he was so utterly unrepentant in his bridge-burning diatribe that i just couldn't bring myself to dislike him for it.
I cannot, I shall not, I will not obey.
