Cheating Gay Boyfriends
Here’s one of those meme post things where guys talk about how they feel when they find out their boyfriends cheated on them. (Oh, the stories I could tell about people I know.)
But the odds that you have cheated, been cheated on, or know someone from either camp are about as likely as Adele making money off her next album.
And if we’re going to get real about it, monogamy isn’t a ship built for everyone, but our culture almost demands it. The real problem isn’t non-monogamy, it’s non-communication. We’re afraid to talk to our partners and afraid to be truthful with ourselves, and the secrets and lies are the poison that can eventually kill the love shared between two people.
I actually cover a lot of this in my novel, below, Unabated. In my book, however, the gay open marriage concept is discussed…along with monogamy. You can check that out with the Amazon link. It does have a happy ending.
Here’s what happens on Grindr. It’s a series of texts and the kind of conversations guys have with each other. I don’t know Grindr at all and I’m not familiar with online hooking up, so to speak, and I can’t comment on this one.
You never know who you might meet on Grindr, but one thing is almost always guaranteed: You’re going to run into a crazy or two while scrolling through guys. We’re talking men with bizarre senses of humor, unusual sexual fetishes, anger management problems, creepy requests, and red flags for stalker tendencies. But it all comes with the territory, right?
I will eventually put something like this in a book, and I’ll become more familiar with places like Grindr through research…book research. Not actual research. You don’t have to jump out of an airplane to write something about it.
Hillary Clinton and Trans Support
Although I hate to get political, I have posted objectively about Trump a few times recently so I better give some objective posts to Hillary, too. Otherwise people might get the wrong idea. So here’s a nice post about Hillary Clinton offering support to a transperson.
Pearl, I’m so sorry that you experienced this. The all-too-high prevalence of violence and hatred faced by the transgender community — in 2016! —is a rebuke to all of us. Every single person deserves to be safe and live free from discrimination and cruelty, period. And transgender people need to hear from every one of us that you are loved, respected, and deserving of equality under the law. Know that you have my support, and I’m on your side.
Even if you’re not supporting Hillary, you have to agree with that. At least I hope so. If you don’t, and you think violence is good, you probably suck.
