    Let us not condescend to this great artist—let us not clamp Him to the labels of cute, maudlin Outsidery—let us not dismiss him as the passing fad of insane wallpaper—let us not make of him a study into Psychopathy—or Clinical Formulation—or Case Study—or Gender Theory—or Queer Study—or Little Girls With Penises Theory—or any other denuded meanness that we will want to arch up against his majestic Taints—his offish, unoafish Sublime Masquerade—Let us not pamper him—or Proselytize inordinately—or wrap him in a Diaphragm—or chain him to the Church—or equate him with Janitorial Circumspection—or ogle his Delicacy into an Effeminate Crackpot Bunny Lust—Let us stop writing this or reading this and LOOK.
