My take on this: This is FUCKING Saturday Night Live! Its goal is to entertain people of all backgrounds and sometimes it included making fun of other's tendencies. To me, it implied that the folks now saw us in the mainstreaming world and decided to poke fun at us. That is quite a compliment, all right.
