A Guide to Understanding Gays

This isn’t original to me, either. I just don’t know who to credit.

A GUIDE TO UNDERSTANDING GAYS
(prepared for heterosexuals, or neanderthals – you pick)
_________________________________________________

A. THE HOMOSEXUAL LIFESTYLE

They work at their jobs.
They shop for groceries.
They go to the movies.
They do laundry.
They order take-out.

___________________________________________

B. HOW TO BEHAVE WHEN YOU MEET GAY PEOPLE

1. Don’t run screaming from the room. This is rude.
2. If you must back away, do so slowly and with discretion.
3. Don’t assume they are attracted to you.
4. Don’t assume they aren’t attracted to you.
5. Don’t expect them to be as excited about meeting a heterosexual as you may be about meeting a gay person.
6. Don’t immediately start talking about your boy/girlfriend or husband/wife in order to make it clear that you’re straight.
7. Don’t ask them how they got that way. Instead, ask yourself how you got the way you are.
8. Don’t assume they’re dying to talk about being gay.
9. Don’t expect them to refrain from talking about being gay.
10. Don’t trivialise their experience by assuming it’s a bedroom issue only. They’re gay 24 hours a day

... or, preaching from both ends

WELL, HELLO! YOU’RE HERE.

That's too bad - I'm so sorry. Oh, well, just try to make the best of it. What you'll find here is a variety of essays and ramblings to do with things theological, social, whimsical and, sometimes, all three. I don't write to get famous - trust me, I've been told how futile that would be - but to express myself. I love to communicate and browbeat - ummm, I mean dialogue - about the things I find intriguing. Since you're here, and the door's locked, why don't you stay a while. There's a page bar under the header with links to information about us - I mean me. Don't forget to tell me what you think - in a nice way, I mean.
