    yeah, im finally changing my homosexuality label to "gay". I tried girls, had a few i really liked, but in the end, i never really felt connected (not to mention i couldn't get it up icon_wink.gif )

    haha so I'm now going to refer to myself as gay (even thought i dont prescribe to labels like that), and im gonna stick to men exclusively icon_biggrin.gif

    Look out fellas; i'm hairy and horny as fuck icon_twisted.gif

    question, though

    you don't subscribe to labels like 'gay' but you do subscribe to labels like 'bearcub'?

    That would be a self-descriptor.

    BearCub17... your first posting re: "your discovery of God's gift in yourself" (okay I restated it like that) got stuck on my head and everytime I see you post something like this, it makes me smile. I think you're cool.icon_cool.gif

    Good for you. Labels are not the "kiss of death." Labels can be a useful convenience. I call myself an "urban male," not because I've never been to rural areas. I'm simply more "urban" than "rural" relative to others. Enjoy your gayness and other respectful and relevant terms of self-reference

    I never did like the term "Homosexual". It's a means for a homophobe to be derogatory and condescending without being technically offensive.

    Well as a pure homosexual. One has never played in/with a vagina! One is not bi, thus a pure homosexual; a fag..........

    But One also hates the banner of Gay. It was such a nice word once (gay), when it meant bright and happy.

    Homosexual is not such a bad word, it in a way represents us all, more so the the word gay does, as we are not all happy.

    "Homosexual" is so clinical and not chosen by those of us who prefer same sex relationships. It was chosen for us. I don't like the word.

    So, have you got any suggestions for a better word than "Gay"? I like it myself.

    To hell with it all, just be yourself. Labels or no labels. Have fun, live well and be true to yourself, your family, friends and your Maker. Be a man and let yourself define who you are with no apologies or excuses.

    Congrats to you. I know how hard labelling can be. I don't even like labels on the products I buy at the store. They peel right off.

    Nothing wrong with being gay or whatever the term you choose to describe your same sex attraction. Just stay away from the realm of gEy-dome. At least until you've settled into your new identifier.

    Yeah, I've never been a fan of homosexual. It sounds like a term use by bible-thumping right-wing biggots.

    I go with gay!

    I remember when I was finally sure enough to admit to myself I was gayer than one of those pink tool sets (those are so cute, I have one)...geeez, I must have bawled like a baby that day. I was in mourning for the straight me that had been laid to rest, but overwhelmed with joy about the new me who was and is still fabulous!!

    Well it is nice to know that not every gay guy under 30 is ashamed of having a hairy chest. You are furrier then I was at 19, so look out, when you get into your 30's and 40's you will have even more (I have about 50% more than what I had when I was 19).

    Congratulations on accepting yourself. I personally don't mind the term homosexual, it is accurate, as opposed to "gay" which to me connotates being silly, not to be respected or taken serouisly ("that is so gay"). I use the word because that is the community's accepted term.
