Normal Gay Dudes: An Endangered Species

    With a recent job opportunity to relocate from South Florida to Philadelphia, I decided to take a chance and make the move. The Northeast is pretty well-known for harboring a higher concentration of intellects and professionals, so I figured that this would be a great move for me. Being able to have quality conversations with friends who are driven is always something I look for when meeting people, and moving to Philly seemed like a good opportunity for that. (Now, don't get me wrong...I'm a big fan of retarded humor. I mean, how can you NOT laugh at Austin Powers when he says, "Allow myself to introduce...myself. My name is Richie Cunningham and this is my wife, Oprah." Classic.)

    I suppose I could make this a "woe is me" tale, but it'd be unfair if I went that route. I have met some pretty awesome people in the very short time that I've been here...and most everyone seems to have the water running pretty deeply within them. The unfortunate side to this is that the "normal" gay dudes in the area seem to be in a ridiculous short supply. When sorting by category of types of people that I have met, this slot is empty. Granted, I'm not the pinnacle of perfection like a lot of you other dudes on this site, but I don't think I have the ability to turn people to stone or send them running for the hills. (Although, small children have been known to cry when looking at me. I kid, I kid!)

    At any rate, I think I failed to make a point...or, maybe I was just taking advantage of the ability to post on here as an opportunity to voice a concern. If anything, I hope I made someone at least laugh with some of the goofiness in the post.

    I wonder if there will be a zoo exhibit soon for normal gay males at some point to preserve this endangered species.

    Most "normal gay dudes" stay closeted. You have to have incredibly accurate gaydar to pick them out.

    I don't know why anyone would want to be normal.

    What a terrible thing, asking someone to define normal.

    NOrmal in my world is club kid. That's my normal. My normal growing up was orthodox jews. Normal is diff to everyone. IN Vancouver Normal is fit and fake. In Toronto it wasn't.

    Haha, I figured I should have defined "normal", especially since I'm a big anomalous. I mean, it's 1:30 and I'm watching Doug on Disney...so, normal is a bit relative, I suppose.

    Let's see...

    "Normal" would be someone who is pretty much a "dude" so to speak. Someone who doesn't engage in the proverbial "drama". I was actually just having this conversation with someone the other day about how females will see someone they absolutely hate at a party and go to each other and say, "I can't believe SHE showed up. We HAVE to go now. I can't be here with HER."

    Two guys who hate each other, on the other hand, could be standing next to each other and not even care.

    I suppose I haven't really defined "normal"...I guess a decent dude who likes retarded comedies, working out, and crazy activities like Warrior Dash and Tough Mudder would be a good start.

    At least I have Doug! Good ol' Nickelodeon.

    By the way, I love the "normal is a setting on the dryer" post.

    It's okay. I'm sure I've offended someone on here with my post. It's not my intention.

    The reality is that making gay friends in general is a pretty difficult feat. But, I'm optimistic. I can't be deterred that easily!

    TL;DR you're just another "masculine" douchebag.

    If someone got offended fuck them....

    Normality is having a job and some sort of responsibility I would assume.
