What the Fuck?!
Today I asked Google to find me some gay blogs. I was hoping to find one that I could enjoy and even perhaps exchange ideas about being gay and living in the real world in the opening decade of the 21st century. I was sorely disappointed. Apparently the only gay blog that isn't primarily involved with sex, porno and generally getting off is Andrew Sullivan's blog and a few others. I mean like sex just as much as the next guy but life is about more than just getting one's rocks off. And the good lord (snicker) knows that I am not opposed to porn. My only reservation about pornography is that porno stars are inherently oppressed by industry in many ways including emotionally and financially. Yes and I say this with full knowledge that I have during my career represented more than a few gay porn houses. If what I found on Google is representative of gay men then it is no wonder that most of the world at least is scared shitless of us and even hates us...witness the shooting last night in Tel Aviv. My primary interest at this point in my life is not getting off, it is living a happy and contented life and indulging and being indulged by my friends, both new ones and old ones, and in passing on some of my life experiences and perhaps some little bit of learned wisdom to other gay men. I hope no one will interpret that as a sexist remark, I say it only because I don't know what I can offer lesbians, having never been one.
