Rather than write something new, I thought, given that I chose to “attend”, I would remind you all what I have already said. Explore if you want to.
In a semi-official capacity I compiled GLBT resources for my school’s Welfare Committee some years back. Many of the links still work.
The theme of this page may offend some, but my position is that such offence is less than the needless suffering, failure of self-esteem, depression, and even sometimes suicide, that dishonesty about this subject can lead to.
Nor am I advocating a “lifestyle”: to quote from an article mentioned below:
There is a big taboo about converting straight people to homosexuality. (Personally I think the chances of that actually happening are as good as your chances of getting kicked to death by a duck.)
This page is dedicated to understanding at least and acceptance at best.
In keeping with those ideas, look at these more recent items:
- On this blog: Category Archives: gay issues.
- On Floating Life: Category Archives: Gay and Lesbian.
- On Floating Life 4/06 to 11/07: Category Archives: gay life/issues.
With apologies in advance, I reprise a less than heavy post:
I went searching, just to lighten up, for some really nice gay jokes. You know, not filthy or demeaning… Um… Well, there is, this with the usual apologies if you’ve heard it…
What a drag it is getting old…
When I went to the bar tonight, I noticed this old boy about 75-80 years sitting all alone in the corner and he was crying over his cocktail.
I stopped and asked him what was wrong.
He said: "I have a 22 year old lover at home. I met him a month or so ago, right here in this very bar!" He continued; "He makes love to me every morning and then he makes me pancakes, sausage, fresh fruit and freshly ground, brewed coffee."
I said: "Well, then why are you crying?"
He said: "He makes me homemade soup for lunch and my favorite brownies and then he makes love to me half the afternoon."
I said: "Well, so why are you crying?"
He said: "For dinner he makes me a gourmet meal with wine and my favorite dessert and then he makes love to me until 2:00 am."
I said: "Well, for goodness sakes! Why in the world would you be CRYING!"
And he said: "I CAN’T REMEMBER WHERE I LIVE!"
Then there’s this site, whose owner states: First of all, I’m gay, so you know there aren’t going to be ANY anti-gay jokes here. Second, if you’re under the age of 14, get off the net, so I don’t have to censor my page. Third, these are all pretty clean, but still; proceed at your own risk, you’ve been warned. I’ll let you explore that on your own. He has "I support John Kerry" banners as well…
