RIGHT UP FRONT--I AM GAY--PART 2
One of the major complaints (or whines) you hear from nongay people is, “I don’t mind gay people but do they have to through it in our face all the time?”
Hey folks you have been throwing your +heterosexuality in my face for 78 years! No matter where I looked or turned or listened, whether movies, TV, radio, newspapers or magazines there it was: engagements, marriages, baby showers, baby births, pictures of your children that I was forced to look at and coo, and what was the American Dream? Yes, a husband, a wife, 2.5 kids and a dog and whether we were watching a commercial or a sit-com it was all about that or the loss of a husband or wife and how the survivor brought the kids up unless of cause they got married and combined their families making sure “Eight is Enough”!
We have Jack flaunting around in “Will and Grace” and we are flaunting it in your face! Oh wait there is that gay couple raising a child in “Modern Family”--OMG! TV is just rampant with +ho-mo-sex-u-als!!!
What about all the years I had to have Liz and her husbands, Larry King and his wives in my face. (Sure, gay marriage will pull no marriage apart!) How about the airwaves filled with stories about Ingrid Bergman having a child by a man while she is married to another man--heck that was such news she had to be condemned on the floor of Congress! Oh, that’s old news??? What about Brittany Spears getting married for 17 minutes and should we even both talking about the Kadashins or whatever they are called?
Oh, so they are celebrities and they don’t count. What about the 50% divorce rate that is thrown in our face all the time or a couple getting married AFTER they have had a child or your next door neighbor who made the paper because she tried to drive over the woman her husband was cheating on?
I could write thousands of examples of nongays throwing their life in gay’s faces so don’t tell me about the past, maybe 20 years, versus the 78 years. And sorry but too bad you don’t like gay parades where, OMG!, a man is showing his haunches and a women may be showing her breasts. Can we talk about the Irish Day parade and what goes on?
Look folks you may even call these posts as throwing the +gay life ‘style’ in your face--learn to live with it as I learned to live with your posts talking about your husbands, wives, kids, grandkids and you throwing the nongay life ‘style’ in my face!
A reminder: I don’t mind rebuttals or emotions but please use facts and/or state when you are saying how you feel and my mother always told me not to discuss religion and I don’t so please keep that out of the ‘debate’.
Part 3 next--gay life in the 50s and 60s before ‘gay liberation’ and before AIDS!
