Is It Insulting To Be Called Straight

Here’s a question from Reddit that sparked an interesting discussion. Someone asked gay guys if they get insulted if someone calls them straight. The replies are interesting.

“‘Straight-acting’ is a fetish among gays, so I’d imagine most of us would be flattered by it, and/or affirmed in our heteronormative impulses,” one user replied. “[In my opinion], insulting someone by calling them straight is deliciously ironic.”

Frankly, I don’t think it’s even relevant. There’s never been any shame associated with being straight, and no one ever had to hide in the closet for being straight. That’s why it’s called “heteronormative.” But then again, the people who replied are not even taking it to this level…which does not surprise me. We have a long way to go yet.

Here’s a link to read it in full. 

High Profile Democrat Andrew Gillum in Hotel Room with Gay Escort

I don’t know much about Andrew Gillum, but he’s had a few problems recently. According to this article, it involved crystal meth, a Florida hotel room, and an openly gay male escort named Travis Dyson.

Gillum is a high profile Democrat in Florida, he’s been married to a woman since 2009, and they have children.

Travis Dyson also identified himself as a “pornstar performer” who offered services including “gay massage.”

You can read it in full, here. Gillum did issue a statement you can read, and he has not been charged with anything.

“A wonderful story that I loved. The characters were well developed, and strong. Gus: A sweet young man. Doing something for all the wrong reasons. Craig: his boyfriend, he’ll go along with anything Gus say. Henry: Gus father a no nonsense man, who’s husband died last year. I enjoyed this story.”

What readers said about Kendle’s Fire. 

While the book is easily readable, it also addresses emotions stereotypes and relationships. I would have preferred it be 3 times as long and tragically most guys don’t find happy endings as depicted.. but in a short book, it provides food for thought, clarity and insight.. far more and better expressed than 99% of gay fiction . I don’t think it could have been done better.
