Tonight at work we were discussing how annoying one of our coworkers is.
Big Gay Rich is a Big Gay Stereotype who annoys me to no end. He calls everyone "baby" and "darling," and inappropriately touches every employee, regardless of gender. He also has a very interesting way of talking:
"Hello. Hi. How are you? Hi." pause "You know the other day. I think it was Tuesday. You said that thing that made me laugh. That was funny. Yea. You know what I'm saying, right?"
He makes me dizzy, and not in that swoony lovelorn way.
So tonight one of my coworkers inferred he was annoying because he was gay. Huh-what? I explained that very few of us gay people feel the need to inappropriately grope everyone we come in contact with. Also, I have never encountered anyone gay or straight who has that kind of verbal tick. Even Rain Man would be annoyed by it.
The coworker's response: "Wait. You mean you swing that way, too?"
And this brought me to a zen moment of realization about my sexuality:
"Yes, I swing that way. But while people like Rich always swing for the fences, I prefer to bunt."
Current Mood: silly

hallawayjoeIt is strange how much homophobia exists... especially among hetero guys, because there are lots of hetero guys that think nothing of anal sex, and other fetishes, with their girlfriends, but then throw 2 guys into the equation and they get a little squeamish and start talking about nature and God's intentions.
