Christie Blatchford's true identity

In a recent column on the upcoming Gay Pride Parade in Toronto. Christie Blatchford, whose columns I used to sort of like when she was still with the National Post, described herself as "relentlessly straight middle-aged woman”. Is it just me who hears the word ‘hopelessly’ somewhere between those words? It seems as if it’s become the only acceptable way for any straight person writing about gays to explain half-apologetically that he/she is unfortunately stuck being “normal” (the quotation marks are for double irony her of course).
