I don’t talk about my sexuality a whole lot because it doesn’t really fit within the neat little boxes society has constructed to categorize what we like to do with our genitals. To people who are just being introduced to me, I am a gay man, I introduce myself as a gay man, and that’s really all you need to know unless we’re going to be doing it with each other in the future.
That said, I don’t know what it’s like to be exclusively gay or straight. Further, I personally can’t wrap my head around what it’s like to be even more body-specific and have only certain types that you’re attracted to within your already sectioned-off sexuality. I know most of my tendencies are toward scruffy boys, chunky boys, and/or furry boys, but I’ve been attracted to everything from curvy black women to very slight Asian men to queer transboys and everyone in between.
In that sense, for me, being gay is a choice. I choose to present myself as a gay man, partly to avoid discussions of who I like and why, because it makes more sense to me. I didn’t choose to be attracted to men but I do choose to be gay. And I’m a grown-ass man so I can do what I want.
And here I thought American Republicans had the monopoly on idiotic counter-arguments to gay marriage. Oscar-winning actor (and noted creepy womanizer) Jeremy Irons says same-sex marriage may lead to fathers marrying their sons for tax reasons.
Because obviously Americans ONLY enter into marriages because of love and commitment. I’ve never met two people of different sexes who have gotten married for money or celebrity or a green card. That absolutely never happens ever.
Georgia GOP Chairwoman Sue Everhart warns the Marietta Daily Journal that gay marriage is not right because same-sex couples “do not have the equipment” for a sexual relationship. She also says the whole thing is a set-up for heterosexuals who lie about their sexuality to pretend to get gay-married and collect the benefits.
Why do Christians always link gay marriage with the apocalypse and the return of Jesus? Don’t you WANT Jesus to come back so you can be Raptured and spend the rest of forever eating grapes on a cloud listening to Enya?
If you really think a little sodomy and scissoring can bring Jesus back, you should be encouraging us to not only get married, but to also consummate those marriages right there on the altar to get Jesus really fired up.
