Melt my heart already. Gay love! So sweet, OUT magazine. My eyes are filled with this watery stuff. I’m leaking or something. Sadly, the stereotype is that:
*All gays are sluts. NOT TRUE. Firstly, this implies that gays are sluts in contrast to straight people, when we all know there wouldn’t be billions of people walking the earth if straight people weren’t fucking like animals in heat. Straight people are HUGE WHORES and nobody dismisses the entire culture as “slutty.” There are plenty of gay people who don’t have multiple partners and don’t think it’s cool to sleep around, just like boring, ugly straight people.
* Gays can’t have committed relationships. So fucking false. Again, this appears to be in contrast to heterosexual couples, as a reason being gay isn’t right in comparison, when over half of marriages end in divorce. By the numbers, straight people can’t commit. There are plenty of examples of long-term gay couples who have grown old and fat together.
Do you live up to the stereotype? I certainly don’t submit to the idea that we’re somehow incomplete with out a partner — I’ve always believed you have to be 100-percent yourself — love isn’t 50/50. It’s 100/100 so when one of you falter the other can bring you back up. What I have come to believe is that we should question our relationships and ask a little more of ourselves, instead of bedding the next cheap trick who makes eyes standing on line at Starbucks. Sex is fun, but it’s really good when there is a connection.
Yes, if you put your heart out there someone can slap it to the floor and step on it. That makes them the asshole, not you. Don’t let fear stop you from finding love.
