the neverending fascination with putting myself in a gay box or not continues ... you know how I've posted before about my feelings about coming out and suddenly I'm lumped into a set group the rest of my life. when really the cay communiy is just as diverse if not more so than those who are not gay. I think for a lot guys in the closet is it's a lot comfortable there and not being put in a group that is seen somehow less masculine. true or not true?
well anyway, i came across this post by an old time favorite surfer blogger, and he touches on a lot of good points. what do you think, is the gay community limited? by coming out is one stuck to having only gay friends to hang out with, and endless night of bars and drama and finding the next person to sleep with? that probably just a gross stereotype, I know. But I know lots of gay guys who maybe at once embraced the gay community upon coming out, but at some point make friends with str8 people who surprise surprise don't care they are gay. ha
What about guys wanting to come out but just don't feel they care to try and "fit in" with a gay crowd... well I figure the more that come out, they're going to find they're own crowd
anyway, just thoughts....
