V oS is woven by Alan Liu of the U. California, Santa Barbara, English Department with a team of department graduate students and others. Robert Adlington and Jeremy Douglass developed the SQL Server database and ASP and VB code for the site (their creative ideas were instrumental to the project). Brian Reynolds built the server machine for the database, integrated it with the separate Web server, and oversaw networking. Bo Kinloch took the lead in graphic design. And Andrea Fontenot, Christien Hoffpauir, and Jennifer Jones assisted with editing and other tasks during the migration to the new format.
Modernism , the idealistic search for truth, gave way in the latter half of the 20th century to a realization of its unattainability. Theodor W. Adorno said in 1970, "It is now taken for granted that nothing which concerns art can be taken for granted any more: neither art itself, nor art in relationship to the whole, nor even the right of art to exist."  Relativism was accepted as an unavoidable truth, which led to the period of contemporary art and postmodern criticism , where cultures of the world and of history are seen as changing forms, which can be appreciated and drawn from only with skepticism and irony. Furthermore, the separation of cultures is increasingly blurred and some argue it is now more appropriate to think in terms of a global culture, rather than of regional ones.
Heterosexual women and their cuckolded men? I think it’s the other way around: if you have enough interest in history to peruse a website about gay history, then I’m surprised you haven’t learned that male infidelity has been condoned by society whereas the same behavior in women has been chastised. On second thought, it seems that you buy into this system because you use a derogatory term for men whose wives have sex with other men (even though their own husbands don’t want to fuck them, since they’re all really gay) but you encourage all men to leave their wives for other men.
