Diogenes: PhoenixInFlames: It's no secret that I'm pansexual amongst my friends or my coworkers

Sex with satyrs is bad and unnatural and you should feel bad.


Those hooves are just so sexy.

Sometimes, when I'm alone, I stick my hands in my armpits and then sniff them.

Valiente: Cythraul: I'm a homosexual.

Is it a step forward that I just actually yawned while reading that?

Of course, I live pretty far downtown.


lol, it was huge when it happened for me... I was worried, coming from an Irish Catholic family that I'd be out on my own after that. I think its great that now even up here in the mountains where I live, it's just kind of ok. Mind you, if it had been as socially acceptable when I was in high school, I would have been a total whore.

ginandbacon: stpauler: Then Ellen came out.

I honestly think Ellen changed the landscape for millions of people. LGBT and allies. We finally felt like there was a chance at getting these conversations out of kitchens and bars and bedrooms and into the public sphere. She deserves a lot of credit for her bravery and ability to completely neutralize any mainstream stigma. The fact that so many of my friends are out now is in large part due to the stand she took and how compelling she was (and is.)


I'm sure that her set of conventionally hot and occasionally straight girlfriends had nothing to do with her "acceptable face of lesbianism" status with the flyover states and People of WalMart who seem to tolerate her Andy of Mayberry-style, homespun dykeness.

Face it, if she showed on the red carpet with an Andrea Dworkin-like bull dyke mountain troll, it wouldn't go down as well. Yeah, I went there.

I'm straight, but I haven't gotten laid in long enough that I'm embarrassed to admit it. Don't ask how long, I'll probably lie.

I think coming out is stupid. Unless you're attracted to someone what concern is it? It's just as stupid as other people trying to keep you from dating people to whom you are mutually attracted.

It means something different for each person. For some, it's no big deal because everyone figured it out already. For some, there may be negative consequences - with friends, family, work, etc.

It's not always a big announcement with a party and pink streamers. For me, it was a decision to be honest about it if asked. Otherwise it was no one's business. But that is just one example of coming out.

In response to this I'm announcing tomorrow to be national "staying in" day. Don't bother putting on pants people, it will be a national holiday, and every just sits around the house like welfare recipients.

Now what's all this about gay people?

it's very important for celebrities, so that we know when to stop watching any movies containing them. or shows on TV with them. or guest appearances on Conan, etc..

I still grapple with the fact I'm a nobody, I've always been a nobody, and if I'm not somebody by now, it ain't gonna happen. Damn shame about that. We coulda had fun.

I'd say let it go. You both need to find someone who makes you happy. If you're staying together for the sake of children, you're not doing your kids any favors, as they learn a lot about how relationships work from watching you two.

I watch "Let's Make a Deal" because I like tossing it to that Tiffany chick

Once, when traveling through Alabama I had this strange compulsion to watch incest porn

I have only seen one episode of 'Firefly', and that was after watching the movie

My one man show was 90% shirtless

I dream of committing genocide against mahogany trees

My dorm room in college was full of posters celebrating alpacas and Webster

I second that notion. I've been trying to talk several male friends out of their miserable marriages for a while now. Y'all are some stubborn motherfarkers.

There are no kids. We're both in our 50's, so I guess we both figure it's to late to start all over again. I have considered finding a "fark" buddy from time to time though.

GAH!

...one...episode...of firefly...AFTER THE MOVIE?!?!?

I am deeply offended by this. Get on that, or I'll find you and force you to watch it a la Clockwork Orange.

Best. Show. Ever.

rdu_voyager: I'm atheist and live in the South. Sometimes I think it'd be easier to come out as gay instead of atheist.


There's at least one other atheist in your city: me. And I feel your pain.

I'm not particularly secretive about it (my Facebook profile lists "nonpracticing atheist") but neither am I forceful. Though during the derpfest in May about our anti-gay-marriage amendment I considered converting to a Hitchens-style obnoxious-asshole atheist.

There's a school of thought saying: if your relationship is critically strained by sexual incompatibility, might as well try an open relationship, as the worst that could happen is the relationship ends somewhat sooner and for different reasons.

How well that works in practice I have no idea.

It's never too late. I know it's hard, and it's terrifying, but you'll move on, and one day you'll meet someone new that will think you're the most awesome thing ever, and it will have all been worth it.

More to the point, I've never actually told this to anyone except my ex-wife, current fiance, and brother, but I'm a straight-identified male who is occasionally attracted to other men.

This is probably not the best place to come out, but since I've been stuck at home recovering form a surgery, it'll have to do.
 
2012-10-11 11:02:48 AM  
I live ever in hope of the day when I can say with some kind of certainty that I've had actual sex and can therefore come out as something other than "virgin."
