dayumm saidWhoop! Whoop!
Shameless Cross-linking ahead!
Also, I think the %20 part always trips up RJ URL attempts. Good on antijock for shrinking the link for us!
Whatever. I searched for the topic title and did not find anything, and spent 5 min looking. Why must you always complain? There are many other things in this world and RJ to worry about. Not like I plagiarized.
Unless you've reason to otherwise mistrust dayumm's intent, I thought he was just kidding, the whoop whoop shameless thang pointing to his own crosslinking.
Art_Deco saidI DO know you must be joking. Nobody confines or corrals us here in Fort Lauderdale...
I'm pretty sure even in Texas people also enjoy the freedom of movement.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freedom_of_movement
paulflexes saidThey're confined to a particular neighborhood the same way a person with a reclusive personality is confined to his or her home. In other words, it's not mandated by society, they just choose to be there, for varying reasons.
Every bar I've been to outside the gay ghetto around here has been a mixture of sexualities, which is why I choose not to live in a predominately gay neighborhood. And every gay bar I've been to has been a mixture of sexualities. Ft Lauderdale (and South Florida in general) is extremely sexually diverse. Too bad we aren't the majority of the state's voting power, or FL woulda had marriage equality a long time ago.
I thought that was you I saw posting again. Hi Paulflexes. I think you are right on self-inflicted reclusiveness.
Speaking as one of the colonizing first families of pre-gaytrified Wilton, me and my dog, I did enjoy the gay ghetto for many years, especially back in my 30s when partying was more fun than in my 50s, and building community required all that work (I did volunteer many years there) but have since relocated. Part of my decision to leave, aside from that my scumbag xcousin's presence had desecrated my beautiful garden, was the inundation of the gay population over the many years I grew older there.
At this stage of my life I much prefer being part of the general, nonghettoized population. It was fun while it lasted for me but I don't miss it.
