I wouldnt trade my current gay life for one from the 80s BUT


I can say there was something to that BIZARRE concept back then of when you could be the WEIRDEST GAY in the world and as long as you didnt say it, it was FINE! It made for a quality of STRANGE BEHAVIOR you just dont get anymore. Now if youre even slightly gay your GAY and everyone knows it and you get pigeon holed immediately, then you were just WEIRD. There is a power in being WEIRD, I feel at least. Its isolating but it also empowers you.

This entry helps me understand the unicron thing. I was thinking, how wierd! Now I know why and it makes sense.

Rock on in your wierdness.

YES. This is why I'm only "semi-out." Apologies in advance for the wall of text, but you sorta hit a nerve. As soon as everyone knows you're a 'mo, they think they know exactly what you're about, and I don't just mean straight people. People assume that you're into "Project Runway," you like that stupid muppet "Gaga," that you're a "good listener"/ you "give good advice" (puke), that you cry yourself to sleep at night cuz you wanna get gay married, and that you actually WANT another "hag" to constantly call you to bitch endlessly about her miserable life, as if being a STRAIGHT WOMAN is something you can even remotely relate to...uhhh NO THANKS.

My "normal" gay friends (i.e. most of my gay friends) love to give me shit & accuse me of being homophobic or "self-loathing" just because I'm not as "out" as they are... Sorry, I just don't feel inclined to try to be the "family friendly gay" or the "harmless, sexless funny gay" or the "activist for equality gay" or whatever "the world" expects fags to be.

And frankly I don't see anything wrong with being "homophobic" to some degree, considering the fact that my generation of gays is actually FRIGHTENINGLY conservative. They think they're being progressive by protesting "Prop8" or trying to repeal "DADT" or whatever...Why?! So they can get married, join the army, adopt a baby and try to prove to straight people that they're "just like everyone else?" Wait, that's progressive? Well have fun with that...

Meanwhile I'll continue to savor my favorite by-products of being "openly weird" and "semi-closeted": confusing the shit out of everyone and breaking their brains.
