Self-Expression, no matter in which matter it is expressed shouldn't be "hushed up". If I'd be gay, I'd be the gayest gay there ever was, I'd
be very proud of it and I'd wear it loudly.
Actually, that exactly what I did and I wrote an article about the experience in my Webzine.
To sum it up:
As a local hero who had been gone for a few years, I came back to my hometown ready to stir # up. Now if you're punk, wearing a mohawk won't cut
it, it's way too fashionable and basically pointless. So I've got this plaid outfit, this hot sexy dress and a bunch of other costumes I like to
wear nowhere near Halloween and which for the most part gets a lot of laughs and kick starts some pretty interesting conversations. Most people are
open minded enough to be entertained by it.
Then I found this tight little vest, this leather cap with chains, these tight pants and thought "I'm going gay tonight!" now of course I'm not
gay and this was in no meant as an insult towards the gay community, it's just what I do; open people's minds and have them experience new things.
So going bare chest under the vest, I was all out YMCA and even practiced the lisp. Since I had been gone for so long, a new generation of kids were
in for quite a surprise!
But I never anticipated that level of aggression. I didn't flirt, I didn't do anything to aggravate people, I simply smiled and socialized. This
one girl kept looking and smiling at me, later on she said hi and started up a conversation but it wasn't long until her boyfriend pulled her by the
arm and yelled at her in front of everyone, ordering her not to talk to me. A lot of guys kept shoving me around, some spat at me, some just cracked
dumb jokes; most of which was quieted with a "Dude that's the guy who plays in that band, he's cool" from the older guys that knew me, or of me,
Then by the end of the night some guys sporting faux-hawks and expensive shoes started cracking jokes but at that point I've just about had enough.
I asked him if I scared him with a heavy lisp... then he looked at me confused and said, "yeah, kind of..." to which I replied "That's because
you're insecure with your sexuality". Of course this broke out into a fight but if he wasn't scared enough, he sure as hell was when my voice went
from fragile to loud, manly and aggressive. He backed down but not before my friends at the door kicked him out, and I mean literally Kicking Him
So as I pointed out, people can take different, people can even take punk with no problem at all. Western society has grown more tolerant of
"different" but gays they still have a problem with? And why? Because they enjoy butt plugs? I highly doubt it since most guys would more than
enjoy a rim job if it came from a hot chick; they'd probably even enjoy a finger up in there too. The problem is that they're scared; they're
insecure. They fear that somewhere they're like them or that they won't mind them so they turn to hate instead.
Really, I've never seen anything so weak in my entire life. Accept who you are and learn to accept people that are different from you. You demand
respect for who you are from everyone around you and it's not because someone is different from you that they deserve any less. In fact, if gays do
go through all that torture and still affirm themselves then they deserve way more respect for having more balls than all of the prejudicial and close
minded people who fear them.
