When I started being open about my bisexual shit. I expected a lot of weird reactions from people and any new friends I made. But what took me by surprise
was the way women looked at me differently. Instantly, I had become less of a threat. I got away with saying shit. No one assumed I was being much of a pig.
At first I was offended. It pissed me off, and still kinda does. That people look at me differently just because I like to suck a dick occasionally. But after a bit of thinking I realized that it was more about people almost forgetting my gender, rather than seeing me differently because of my sexuality.
They had sorta, forgotten I was a guy. Which is totally weird but it makes sense in a way. Because most “guys” are douchebags and pigs. Prone to cat calling and mindless bs. Or at least that’s the general assumption most people have. And when people saw I was gay (part gay? Semi queer? Part time fag? I’m going with part time.) They assumed I didn’t fit into that manly man stereotype. Because we all know queers aren’t real men! So people separated me from that cat calling, pig archetype as well.
So it forced me to think about how fucked up the image of being a man is. The mass pop of men are assholes, that’s just truth. But I never noticed how much it darkened the reputation of EVERY MAN. That no one escapes the shadow of what other men do. No matter what your moral standings are.
It’s an upsetting thought. But it makes things more complicated, and I’m a sucker for a challenge so I guess it’s fine.
