That's the beauty of being gay - you can go take a sewing class and learn to make your own gay clothes, and they will look fabulous!
Us gay guys are so confident in our manliness that we can do girlie things without shame.
(Another funny comment, if I do say so myself). I added this comment in jest, of course. But, later I got to thinking about the last part and started to wonder if, perhaps, maybe there is hidden truth buried in those words.
I mean, take drag queens for example (a topic of another of AtP's posts, what goes through that kids head anyway?). It takes a lot of moxie to go out in public like that. I don't think I could do it. For a closeted gay like me, I spend a great deal of effort trying to appear straight when out in public. However, I have to respect those who are totally open, confident, and unashamed in their gayness.
Drag queens may be an extreme example. But, there are other things as well. For example, I used to be embarrassed when people learned that I'm not into sports (something which I've gotten over, I'm thankful to say). So many of us just try to fit in and not do anything to call attention to ourselves. There are certain things that our society has dictated to be girls only; so, people take notice when they see a guy doing these things, like scrapbooking.
And that has gotten me to thinking - are these the real men in our society? Anyone can act macho. (belch, fart, crush soda cans on their forehead, yada, yada, yada). It takes a lot of courage to act gay (whatever 'acting gay' means).
BTW, does anybody know what happened to Foxx? His blog is getting a 404 error, and the domain he was hosted on has been suspended
