    Seeing as most states don't have anti-discrimination laws for gays, not sure how that's a perk.


    Seeing as the developed civilised world does I see the American perspective as irrelevant.
    Ah, didn't realize you were in the UK. Yes, the rest of the 1st World is light years ahead of us when it comes to civil rights for gays. Guess I'm just bitter than you can actually be fired just for being gay in most states.


    Though I lived in New York for a bit where they have banned it for the past 10 years, New York is a shining beacon for progressive policy, if New Yorkers selected the American and European leaders the world would be a lot better off.

    Again all this stuff is material. I think the intangible things that can't be explain is what everyone keep tip toeing around. Maybe because I am also a minority ethnically, I'm more in tune with the discrimination/unfair laws bull shit. That can be changed, but there are things we just never will be able experience because of our sexual orientation.

    For Example...
    How many of you out there are going to have this amazing wedding with family and friends and the whole works...hmmm
    Oh yea we aren't even legally able to EVEN if you do find someone to marry.
    ...just saying

    In terms of straight men respecting art and other more "feminine-like" interest, most of my straight friends are heavily into it. Hell they watch "The Real Housewives of..." and I can't make it through an episode.

    ^^^^ still missing the point. It's meaning a love behind all of it...and yea traditions are kind of important. I'm sure you celebrated Christmas, New years, or your birthday. But those are just traditions right...?

    Hahaha... I never thought about it that way. How many straight guys can say "I saw the hottest chick in the showers at the gym today..."?

    But I'm no creeper. I keep the curtain closed and respect others. No staring from me.

    I agree.. You have a duality as a person. You get to enjoy things that both male and female enjoy.

    I can't fix the way my family disapproves of it. I can't fix the fact that I can't find a suitable partner. I can't fix the fact that I will never be able to have a normal marriage. I can't fix the fact that segments of society will always have a problem with my sexuality. I can't fix the fact that I can't have my own children. I can't fix the fact that I go home alone each night when my friends go home with their girlfriends or girls they pick up while out.

    Nor can I fix your chronic negativity. I can't know if it's the passing angst of youth, common to many, or something more lasting & serious.

    What I can tell you is that many gay men face these dilemmas. You make the best choices available to you, with the goal of seeking the greatest advantage & happiness for yourself under the given circumstances. And to make yourself content with the choices you have, and not dwell on the choices you cannot have. Even straights have to make similar decisions.

    I can assure you a man can have a wonderful, fulfilling and happy life as a gay. He can also make himself miserable wishing to be something he's not. You are what you are, so work with what you've got.

    Perhaps when you no longer feel yourself under the influence of disapproving family, and have more success in gay socializing, you'll come out from under this shadow. And as for children, we've just returned within the hour from a birthday party for a friend. And a gay couple brought their 2-year-old daughter. I didn't ask if she was adopted or the natural child of one of the fathers, but I've known both situations. Point is, being gay doesn't mean you can't be a father if you wish it.

    So shake yourself out, my love, and clear your head of this nonsense. Being gay can be a total joy, if you want to let it happen. Or it can be total misery, if you are determined to take that path. It's all a matter of choice.

    I would say being a part of History in a period of change.
    We are the generation of gay actively 'fighting' more than ever for the equality between genders and sexual orientation rights. In the next decade a lot of country and states are going to be more 'open' about weddings, succession right when you partner pass away, adoption, ...

    Like our Gran-ma fighted to be allowed to vote, right to divorce, contraceptives, right of abortion ...

    I'm French and Hollande as a President is making the country change.
    I live in Texas and even in a 'country-side minded state' the people start to accept than people can be gay.

    Having sexy with another man.

    Other than that, every 'perk' I read was hardly unique to gays. I don't know why we all think we're so special...

    The best thing about being gay is that you get to have sex with men.

    I am glad I am gay. I'm just sorry it took me so long to really appreciate it.
