"You know he's gay, right?"
"Sorry ladies, he's gay."
"Too bad he likes wang."
"Ummmm you know you have no chance with him because he's into dudes, right?"
...as if the average woman would have any chance with him even if he was into chicks.
What do people think they are accomplishing by saying this? I don't think the gender of the person someone likes to nail has much to do with their appearance and attitude....except maybe Johnny Weir....and aren't appearances mixed with attitudes what makes someone sexy?
These comments mostly come from men, which is funny because men always criticize women for being jealous of other women, but women sometimes do it too. No one says to men, "Hey, you can't think that woman is sexy because she's a lesbian." In fact, they kind of encourage him further to think she's sexy if she's gay. Even weirder, gay men call women sexy all the time and no one says anything about it.
For the life of me, I don't understand it; I have a theory it's yet another way to trample on the evil yet ubiquitous demon known as women's sexuality as well as a way to dehumanize gay men, but what I do understand is that it's obnoxious and people need to
knock it the fuck off!
Here is a gallery of just a few gay men I find sexy and will continue to find sexy (all images have been stolen from whomever they belong to):
Even without makeup:
Mostly I like his bizarre sense of humor
(Kathy Griffin happens to be my spirit animal)
Neil Patrick Harris:
Ya need a mongaaaage (montage!)
And this is the sexiest thing that ever happened:
Can we, can we?!?!?!
When it's right, it's Wong.
He could get me wet...
...and give me a Bomer.
There are plenty more too, but I only have so much patience for scrolling through Google Images to find good pics.
