A friend of mine recently commented to me
Now I would not have been surprised if she had said:
“How do you expect to find a man for yourself when you are always hanging out with guys whom you call your friend, since any other guy would assume the obvious since they are that stupid and idiot?”
What is it with people and this huge deal over being gay? Especially straight men! As soon as you mention a story about a friend, they would actually start making faces, or come up with the most weirdest taunts about them.
It is like this great big phobia that straight men seem to be having! I mean just because they are gay doesn’t mean they want to do it with every guy!
But to be honest it is nice to know that men can feel the same kind of insecurities that girls face in most parts of the world.
But this phobia is real , and I have seen it in many of my straight friends, and I think it is downright offensive they talk about gay men! The recent suicide by a teenager over being gay due to the taunts of his friends and students of the same high school shows the fact that there is a very low acceptance of being gay in almost all parts of the world.
The dilemma is that although the media is showing gays, living the high life, and partying away at Event openings and all, but the fact of the matter remains that in general, on a more realistic scale, they are not accepted. The gays in most part of the world who are part of the Fashion/ Media Industry might find themselves away from the line of criticism, but the average man on the street is not.
But on a lighter note, I love my gay friends! And I don’t care for any straight man’s Insecurities. I mean who wants to be with a man who can’t even appreciate your friends!
