….i really didnt wanna comment, cause i HATE rocking boats. But, i just have a confusion moment here.
its common knowledge that its stupid, closed minded, and overal really bad to try and “straighten”out a gay/bi person, but, it is ok to joke about doing the opposite to a straight?
sorry. i’m having a bitchy day. everyones allowed one, right? i’ll shut up now -.-;
I agree with you; the way to counter the assertion that there’s something “wrong” with being queer is not to assert that there’s something “wrong” with being straight.
BUT THEN AGAIN I’M AN INVISIBLE BISEXUAL SO MY OPINION IS LIKELY INVALID
Yeah I never found any real amusement in this joke either and I get uncomfortable and cringe if I see someone practising this mindset.
Part of a guilty pleasure is watching a program called Come Dine With Me. A bunch of strangers hold dinner parties for each other over the week and secretly score each other to hopefully win £1000 at the end of the week.
A few days ago I was watching it and one of the dudes was obviously gay. Two other men were there, one a typical bloke and the other a fashionable hairdresser (he came off as pretty comfortable but straight.)
Point being, the hairdresser let the gay guy touch his hair because he had fabulous hair. The typical bloke noted how hairless the hairdresser otherwise was and showed the carpet of grey curls covering his chest.
This led to the gay guy walking over and rubbing his hand over the typical bloke’s chest - UNDER HIS SHIRT. I was sitting there tense just waiting for a punch to be thrown.
He later confessed in private to the camera that he did not like that at all and if it happened again there would be an incident.
The gay guy also said in private to the camera with a smug look that he thought the bloke “secretly” enjoyed the touch of another man.
No. No he doesn’t. He’s firmly straight, you went and touched him without his express consent and had the nerve to insist he liked it when he clearly didn’t. STOP MAKING US LOOK BAD.
