Well I had originally planned on making this post on my blog but I thought it would be perfect here on Biki's 2nd blog. My name is Ethan. I am 18 years old live in Iowa in the USA and have a blog called Slowly Coming Out. www.ablackclosetcase.blogspot.com to learn more about me
And now my post
So I was talking to Ryan and he had posted a picture of himself on his facebook with a rainbow style tie with the caption of "sometimes a gay guy just needs to release his inner rainbow!"
Now I could have asked him to just remove the caption but truth be told I still wouldn't have liked the picture.
You see when I see that flag the first thing that pops in my mind is flaming gays. You know exactly who I'm talking about; gays who sound and act more like girls than girls among other stuff. I mean they have a right to act the way they want and I'm not going to stop them or tell them they should change their ways BUT that doesn't mean I like it.
I mean like it or not (and I don't), the media likes to take the really gay guys and put them on tv b/c they are doing the most outlandish stuff, wearing the craziest stuff, and acting crazy too and it is good for the ratings and they like it too. Especially Gay Pride. I have none what so ever after seeing what those people do on TV.
I think what people don't realize that a group of gays hate it. Why? b/c we are trying to convince our family/friends/co-workers and anybody else that we are still normal people but just like people of the same-sex but that shouldn't be any reason for us not to be looked down on. But we aren't having much luck b/c this is ALL they see on tv and if they see anything else they don't believe it could ever happen in real life.
So yeah I don't like nor do I care for it. I think that is nice that people can be like this and are happy but I think it's going to be a long time before we can have a good balance of it in the media but really who would want a normal gay couple on TV which wont do anything when you can have a flaming gay or 2 on TV which could boost ratings a lot?
You may say that I shouldn't judge them before I get to know them but I say why not? They aren't helping me be gay so why should I help them?
