Straight privilege!

But is it true?

No jokes, yes I think it is.

Perhaps to prove it I'm going to live for one week as a homosexual, and another week as a heterosexual.

The first week: Buddy, I got something to tell you. What? I think i'm heterosexual. I like chicks.
Me too!
Cool ...

It's the other week that worries me.

Have you ever grabbed a woman's breasts, when she didn't say 100 percent that she wants you to?
I'm a sinner.
But as a male you go too slow - you're a waste.
You go too fast, and you're a chauvinist.
What must dudes do?

And then that bra thingie.
What on earth?
Get the scissors, and I thought you needed a trim anyways.

On the other hand, if I took a woman home tonight, nobody would have complained.
I'd probably get a prize.

Just had tea with a bro.
Big problems - just tea, nothing happened.
But they think it did.

Do you think a man could ever make another man pregnant?
With enough effort perhaps.

I usually vaguely understand your threads, but this really went over my head.

i'll be polite and just assume your more intelligent than I am, and nod politely
though I suspect alcohol is involved.

Well what can I say?

I'm appropriating my own culture while appropriating myself.

Camp humor - oh, I just can't help it!

This is supposed to be my straight week.

Sorry everybody.

Go through the process of 'passing', and write a book documenting it and call it "Gay, like me". You will learn a lot about yourself, I expect. I realise you posted this in Jokes, however, I'm missing the jape halfoldman.

I think what you're struggling to postulate is that heterosexuals get a "pass", whereas everyone else gets cubbyholed into the slot of "other". If, I'm right about your intent, then kudos to you. If I'm wrong, then you might consider it as a thread in Social Issues.

As always, keep you seat backs and tray tables in the upright and locked position.

I thought he was marking the obvious divide between gay and straight relations. Whereas straight guys are frowned upon for escalating sexual tensions and actions. Conversely, everyone expects it from gay folks.

Interesting paradigm. If I'm reading it correctly that is.

What ever people want to read into it.

But obviously I'm poking fun at the "distinctions" or "binaries".

That is a possibility also. Or both. Rereading the OP, I think you nailed it.


Metaphorically, of course.

I can kinda follow your train of thought, but from the female side it is a bit different.

As a straight female, if you don't at least make it a little hard to jump in the sack with, you get branded as easy.

I remember that part of it.

Then I came out Bi... and suddenly I was viewed by some people as a walking three hole circus.

So there is a difference in how you are treated by others, depending on your sexuality.

Which is really a pity... I am the same person now as I was before... just changed my life-mate.



ETA.. for those who find offense at the three hole circus part, I was called that once when the people I worked with found out I was Bi.

I was offended as well.

That cut on your chin?

I fell, no I really did.

But tell everybody tomorrow I was in a fight.

Yea, the age old conundrum of easy women = bad, easy men - rockstars. Can't change some folks thinking I suppose.

I'll never understand why some folks want control over others and judge them on criteria that they can't themselves possibly measure up to.

ETA: Did you tell them they were only pissed because they couldn't even afford a ticket?

Can it be? I'm so gay I'm starting to like my own masculinity.

The crux being nothing happened, but now you have exposed yourself to another social scene.

And the fact is, if you're known to be homosexual, people will avoid you.
OK some people will also celebrate you.

But mostly, it is still a social death.

But then let it be.
I cannot change it.

What happened with identity politics recently?
It's become such an issue.

But despite all that, few have taken the time to befriend an lgbt person, for example.

There is this discourse from the radical left and right.

Going right over my head.

We get older alone.
I can tell you many things.
Some of us survived AIDS.

You speak for us, but don't befriend us.

Is minority an apt term to describe the LGBTQ... folks?

Marginalized does and either way, you folks have are the latest in a long list of useful tools. Only to be discarded after the goal is achieved or lost.

In American politics anyway.

Speaking for myself, yes it is a minority.

I realize like most minorities it is frayed along the edges.

Academically we can speak about "social constructions" and whatever until the cows come home.

But in society we are a very real, and recognizable minority.

And until very recently, it was against the law for two people of the same gender simply to be intimate.
Most of the planet it still is.

That's what I don't like about the term "homosexual" (or conversely "heterosexual").

The man disappears, and all you have is "sexual".
But the defining feature is not sexual at all.
It is mental.
It's a mode of thinking that is different from the majority.

I've tried to replace it with terms like "queer".
I don't think people understood though.
