UMayNeverKnow saidI have a suspicion that the OP was either a total slut in his youth and now has an incurable disease and is on a crusade (sort of like ex smokers) or no one wants to sleep with him and he's jealous.
I think straight culture is promiscuous also.
I have no diseases at all, I can prove it and I get tested every 3 months without fail. I have a reputation as a 'serial monogamist' though I have of more recent times been much more sexually active with hook ups in the past. Your choice of profile name is very apt because it seems you have bought into the 'trauma reaction' many gay particularly of the baby boomer and the first half of the Generation X many of whom experienced Gay life through hook ups and bathhouses and beats because their sexuality in their youth was stunted by the threat of legal sanctions (sodomy laws) and massive discrimination in all parts of society, not to mention the con stent threat of physical harm if they dared to express their sexuality in public.
Since that time Gay men have had an increasingly improved lifestyle of being able to express themselves and with ever decreasing fear of facing problems for expressing their sexuality. It's still not perfect for all, not pretending it is so, just saying much better than before.
As a result of living in that era through those times where opportunities to mix with other gay men for many was limited to breif sexual encounters. This information is well known and applied to all but a few and the reaction of some of these men was that as society refuses to accept my sexuality at all, their is no obligation to live life by the rules of the oppressors. Young gay Millenials have not experienced this and have chosen a different path, in other words they are more accepted so they seek to live by the mores of their society they live in and there choice is as valid as any other. Many older men who perceive themselves or are past their prime, want to make up for lost time or simply recent the way that those younger than them don't understand what they had to go through. They perceive younger generations as apathetic and cling to a version of the limitations forced on them during their youth and many long to be able to experience the acceptance they didn't have, so in order to ensure that the majority of gay men agree with their mindset, any discussion other than "Men are men, that's just the way we are" ect and employ words such as "slut shaming" to control or at least reduce any tendency of the mainstream of Gay men to question the long held notion that Gay men should sleep around or their is something wrong with them. My topic I posted is to get people thinking, not to judge also to give a voice to many who are sick of the runaround of the hook up world, or endless open relationships which only work for the very few.
If you don't like what I am saying, your probably one of the traumitised and deserve support not condemnation. I hear more critisism of people who want monogamy, or downright condescension than I ever ever heard any slut shaming. Lots of hypocrisy abound regarding this and You could even say that about me. What it won't do is change me right to ask questions about why do we just accept cultural attitudes from the past without examining their ongoing relavence. I'm talking about the need to be banging every guy we can or being left to feel inadequate if we don't want to do that. I respect all opinions but don't think that the reality of change will just go away because you try to shout down the views of others especially when they are not judging your choices
