I'm a gay man. ( I bet you would have never guessed!) ....One of my best friends is also a gay man. Just to kill some misconceptions by many well-meaning persons, I offer a portrait of my friend and myself.
* Played football in high school, and didn't even partake in any homoerotic rituals in the locker room.
* Have terrible fashion sense.
* Hate "Sex and The City" "Will and Grace," and "Dawson's Creek."
* Enjoy watching James Bond movies.
* Never miss the Super Bowl.
* Hate shopping for clothes, but love shopping for gadgets from the Sharper Image catalog.
* Go to sports bars as well as gay bars.
* Do not have a lisp, limp wrists, or a swagger in our step.
* Sometimes do not shave for days on end.
* Have had had a boyfriend for two years straight (no pun intended).
* Have had a messy apartment.
* Don't obsess about sex.
* Defy stereotypes, but not on purpose.
And next time you see two gay men holding hands, remember: they don't just have sex...they also.....make love.
