    Funny article comparing the lifestyles of straight and gays. He even got some input from Dan Savage.

    Maybe this is why "straight" guys want to have sex with us. icon_lol.gif

    So the moral of the story is that humans are meant to seek hedonistic pleasure...icon_neutral.gif

    Ugh.
    "Us vs them" humor.
    Bitter and distasteful.

    I'm curious. Are you talking about the article linked in the OP? I thought it was insightful and lighthearted. I guess there could be a "sour grapes" aspect, if you read a lot into it. Personally, I don't think I'd be any better off if I were straight.

    He just doesn't want straight people to think he's skeevy:

    "My apologies for the lack of face pics. In day-to-day life I'm pretty much out, but I spend enough time doing grappling (~wrestling) that I'd rather not have a public face pic that would ultimately skeeve out any of my partners. Hey, we're all partial prisoners of our upbringing."
