But, ya know, only if I were gay. Which I'm not.
@Jaykub, 🎵if you were gay, that would be ok. I mean 'cuz hey, I like you anyway. Because you see, if it were me, I would feel free to say that I was gay. But I'm not gay.🎵
@Jaykub, iiiiitttts OKAY TO BE GAY, LETS REJOICE WITH A VOICE, IN A GAAAY WaaAAAaaAAAAAYY
I listened to all that....
JUST SCREW ALREADY!!!
@ptitty1231, I know right? The denial is real
Is this Yuri on Ice
@WickedStyx, honestly Yuri was straighter than that, he at least had a childhood girlfriend
But the Swede guy? *shudder*
@ptitty1231, he weirded me the fvck out
This man must have beaten his meat any moment he could
Did he go from flacid to boner to flacid in a second under those sheets?!
please tell me this is a parody
Why not top? Bam, solved his problem, he can be gay now.
It’s almost a shame I’m not attracted to penis. I can deepthroat a cucumber. I’d be really good at giving head.
@I Are Lebo, being gay seems like it would be sooooooooo much easier
@CellSword, which is why I think it’s ridiculous that people coming out of the closet are labeled as heroic. It’s not heroic if there isn’t any risk anymore, and heaven help the professional athlete that comes out saying he is uncomfortable with a gay teammate. They’d be roasted for being homophobic.
@I Are Lebo, I would like to hear the story of how you discovered this ability to deep throat garden vegetables.
@I Are Lebo, I think that heroic thing will go away, it's already not a super big deal in California, so I imagine the rest of the country will get over it as well... but then again the rest of the country hates to follow California so I guess just keep considering it heroic lol
@I Are Lebo, it depends. I had a coworker that got fired last year when it was found out he was gay. Turns out that's still perfectly legal here in Oklahoma. It's not heroic for celebrities in California sure but here you'd have to be out of your mind. I'm 26 years old and i've never seen a gay couple in public in my entire life in this state
@Hoopscallion, that’s despicable. Where do you work?
@I Are Lebo, I'm not there anymore (was kind of not a good place to work for obvious reasons) but it was a smalltown newspaper. I take comfort in knowing they are probably gonna be out of business soon. Newspaper. 2018. Not a very good combo
@CellSword, lol other stares love following cali.
@I Are Lebo, I know gay couples get harassed for holding hands in public and disowned by their families. We hope people don’t suck but they definitely do. Talk to the community you will see how “equal” things truly aren’t.
@madeyoulook2, there’s some big differences between spheres, I guess. There’s a few areas where the opposite is true. I guess it depends.
@I Are Lebo, it may not be heroic in states like California (I live there too but I go to school in Michigan and my whole family is from the south) but it’s still damn difficult. I just turned 22 and just came out to my parents and it was one of the more difficult things I’ve ever done. I’m not saying people who come out should be lauded as heroes but you should definitely respect the effort and courage required.
@Mr Sarcastic, I do respect it, but we should be careful of the words we use. If we label serving our country and going to war as heroic, or being a firefighter and running into a burning building to save another human is heroic, then we cannot also label coming out of the closet as heroic. Especially if the person is coming out of the closet to mass public support.
Something taking courage doesn’t automatically equal heroism. Someone with agoraphobia needs courage to go outside, but the moment we label going outside as heroic we strip all meaning from the word.
@I Are Lebo, oh yeah I don’t think it’s heroic but it’s damned difficult and emotionally consuming. And potentially dangerous. Plus not everyone’s family can handle it. I’ve met people who were beaten half to death and thrown out of their house by their parents for coming out and they haven’t heard from them since.
@Mr Sarcastic, if my parents beat me for being gay and threw me out, I’d burn their house down while they slept.
Fortunately for everyone, they’re not crazy like me.
@I Are Lebo, a reasonable reaction
@I Are Lebo, I get what you are saying but the difference is huge, from full support to literally getting beaten for holding hands. I have the belief its brave. Hell, it is brave to be any type of different (not want kids, single by choice, etc.) our generic world. Heroic in some cases but the word should be reserved for said cases to avoid loosing meaning. And Im ranting ...
@madeyoulook2, I can support the idea that coming out is brave. You can never truly know how other people will react. Whether it’s coming out as gay or trans or whatever, there’s an element of risk, and whether that risk is disappointment on behalf of loved ones all the way to violence from them, it is reasonable cause for anxiety.
Heroism is a highly valued trait. We ascribe heroism to those who endanger themselves for the benefit of others. Not for those who take risk onto themselves in the pursuit of self actualization.
To call a professional basketball player a hero for coming out as gay in a time and place where it is not only legal to do so but illegal for anyone to harass him for doing so is an insult to the word hero and all of the people whose self sacrifice has saved the lives of those around them.
I would be every bit as insulted if a morbidly obese woman singing the national anthem to an international crowd was labeled a hero for doing that.
‘Hero’ means more than that.
If I was gay, I'd definitely be catcher
