The Autobiography of Russell
Life from a different perspective
Interesting tidbit about me
dante_senseiKyle: Well... what do you think about you keeps you isolated?
zimzatRussell: I don't have much interest in things that everyone I have met does. I don't really care what music artist made what song. I don't memorize movies or actors and I can't recognize most actors by their name. I have an interest in computers and programming but I'm not a die-hard geek. I don't care much about going to clubs and I don't want to drink, smoke, or do drugs.
zimzatRussell: I often feel restrained due to the possibility of screwing things up and offending someone.
dante_senseiKyle: No offense, but you're the epitome of the anti-gay gay man. *nodnod*
dante_senseiKyle: You're not obsessed with Hollywood, you don't have many vices, and you're a nice guy.

First of all...I thought I was this Kyle at first, and couldn't believe I'd ever type something as confusing as that first sentence. Then I realized it wasn't me because whoever that person is doesn't make sense and I disagree with him anyway. Anti-gay gay man? Hardly. By implication, he must think pro-gay gay men have lots of vices and are obsessed with Hollywood and aren't nice guys. I'd consider myself a nice guy (usually) and I'm definitely not obsessed with Hollywood, but I'm definitely not the anti-gay gay man, either. Unless by anti-gay he means like a foil to the gay paradigm. Which I can sort of understand.

That's it. You got it.

The gay culture nowadays seems to be too obsessed with being pretty, knowing celebrities, sleeping with everyone, smoking, drinking, doing drugs, going out, partying, and whatnot. It's rather disheartening.

Re: Umm...

Since the 70's that seems to be all gay men are, not just nowadays. It's like they got sick of people saying "look this is what normal is, follow that" and just decided to fuck them and be the exact opposite.

Re: Umm...

Aww, take heart--QAF is not a depiction of the average homosexual. Not even close. :)
Love the Sarah MG :)

Re: Umm...

Oh come on. The average homosexual is not of the QAF design? I beg to differ.

For instance, let's say that the media films at a gay pride rally. Who are they likely to video? Certainly not the ones wearing suits and looking like politicans. They're going to follow the drag queens and the ones making out/simulating sex in the street.

In today's society, there is much more focus on that flavor of homosexuality than of the kind that wines and dines, has deep and meaningful relationships, and would rather go to the theatre than get drunk and participate in orgies. Young, impressionable gay teens see their culture being represented by QAF and the media, so they mimic these ideas and emulate the TV personalities.

A more correct response would be "Aww, take heart--QAF is not a depiction of every homosexual. Not even close. :)"

P.S. Thanks, Gellar rocks my socks ^_^

Re: Umm...

Well, realize that most most gay people don't live in big cities, which are mostly the only places with sex bars and such. I'm not denying the media glorifies promiscuity, but, I still think you're being way too pessimistic :)
Yea for Gellar!

Re: Umm...

Hmm. I know most gay people don't live in big cities and whatnot. Well, neither do I. I live in a town with about a 7,000 population. We are situated next to a city with a population of approximately 85,000 or so. We're not that big of an area, really. Even for the kids who live in the town I live in, they're quite slutty. And I attribute most of it to the way the media portrays homosexuality. Well, that, and their parents, since most of the dads around here all sleep with each other. It's a well-known (and also quite nasty) fact (and nasty mainly because, well, I don't want to picture my friends' dads going at it. Yuck).

Also, another reason why I blame the parents around here is their basic idea that homosexuality is sinful and disgusting. Combine that with drunken Southern stupidity and rowdyness, plus forcing their ideas down their children's throats, well, you get quite the ugly mess thanks to homophobic parents. The gay teens are like other teens in that they naturally rebel against their parents. Some of them feel that a good, logical way of rebelling would be to sleep with as many same-sex people as possible, further infuriating the parents.

P.S. My town has a total of three bars, all dominantly straight. The city next to us has two gay bars, which really can barely be considered gay, especially when 75% of the clientele is of the heterosexual persuasion. *shrugs*

Re: Umm...

All bets are off in the deep Christian south. It scares me that there are areas of the country that are completely saturated with religious zealot idiots. *shudder*

Re: Umm...

Word. The south blows. Ah well.

*trots off*
