When covid hit I got in to a discussion with a 60 yo feminist woman. JANET. She thinks her struggles were harder than a white gay boy growing up like me. Comparing current kids to hers and my upbringing, she conjured the Cold War. I said my fear growing up was AIDS. She quickly fired back icy and cold “but that’s completely preventable”, this straight woman pissed me off. You know what else is completely preventable? Pregnancy. Just don’t get raped.
You know who get raped a lot? Gay men…
She lectured me about covid and the threat to nurses even as she had covid with in proximity of me. She chided “my friends are dying”. Hypocrite. When I said the elderly and unhealthy in this country (high blood pressure, diabetes, overweight) were most at risk, she denied it, saying everyone needs to get vaxxed. Then the virus would stop. That is clearly impossible and false. But lives in a state of denial.
Rule number one, never shout ‘My friends are dying to a gay man’ with the expectation of receiving sympathy. Not unless ALL OF YOUR FRIENDS ARE DEAD.
All of my boyfriends watched and nursed all of their friends as they dead. All of them. Straight people will never understand that. LGBT built their own legal power house that won legal battles because of this. Starting with AIDS, then housing rights and privacy rights, and then marriage rights.
Make no mistake before straight women were our allies they voted against us and they were our enemies. They accused us of steeling their husbands and brain washing their kids because it was convenient for them. Never acknowledging that ‘the call might be coming from inside house’ and maybe women aren’t as great of a partner as they think they are.
Then Dems took LGBT under their umbrella and diluted and used gays to their own advantage. LGBT and Dems watered down the messaging behind LGBT, Gay appropriating everything. Similar to how they use blacks.
When we lift the covers from our feelings
We expose our insecure spots
Trust is just as rare as devotion
Forgive us our cynical thoughts
If we need too much attention
Not content with being cool
We must throw ourselves wide open
And start acting like a fool
PA is common in people who repress their feelings, lack confidence, or are subordinate. Unfortunately, that means it’s prevalent in women and gay men, especially those attracted to older big more dominate men. GYO I’m talking to you.
