"Salot sa lipunan ang mga bakla"
That was how a friend of mine stated why he would never hire gay men (I'm talking about men here) to his Internet Solutions company. They watch gay porn. They are loud. They are maarte. They everything. Well, I can't blame him. That was his belief, I wish I wouldn't find out in 10 years that he would come out of his stinking closet and have a gay relationship of his own.
But really, out of all the gays that I have chatted with, only one never dared to get kinky in some way. Why is that? Why gays have to talk of fellatio, copulation, coitus, and other what-have-yous all the time? I'm just sharing an opinion, I guess.
I guess there will really be a stereotype against gay men. I was never comfortable being seated beside a homosexual be it in a jeep, in a bus, in an FX, a plane, a moviehouse (horror of horrors!), let alone engage in a conversation or spend a whole day with one.
Homophobia you think? Probably.
You fear what's not comforting to you, right? You fear about things you don't know yourself. It is the relative unexposure to the gay culture that is getting me. How many hook-ups can one gay have in a week? Or, how are they inside a men's CR. Or, if girls love to go as a group inside their CR, why wouldn't they?
Is it not just the preference, but a whole new different lifestyle, a whole new different gender?
I wish, I dunno. I dunno what I should be wishing for. I don't think it really is acceptance because they have long been there. I mean, you guys have long been there. Maybe deciding to be one means you decided to risk what the world would view you. I don't think equality will really come. There will always be prejudice to some degree.
All gay men, please chill.
