Are You A 'Militant Gay?'

Well?

I'm becoming one. I'm mad as hell and I can't take it any more.

I'm a bit of a gay supremacist.

Completely.

I'm a gay-extremist

I'm unabashedly out and outspokenly liberal, but to look at me you'd think I was a suburban dad or generic middle-management type. Draw your own conclusions.

More like an astonished gay. Sometimes I can't believe the progress we've made in just the past ten years. It's been amazing to witness.

NO, just a mainstream dude who happens to "get with dudes" sometime.

I've become a lot more obnoxiously gay recently. I think it comes from living in the suburbs where straight culture is so dominant. I was shopping in a mall over the holidays, and this woman held up a Giants jersey and said to me (out of nowhere) "I want to get this, but you know, they're having such a bad season." I got so annoyed that I was immediately expected to know what she was talking about, and to give half a shit about it. It would be like if I ran up to some straight frat guy and struck up a conversation saying "You know, I don't know who should win this season of All-Stars: Raven or Chad Michaels" and expected him to know what the fuck I was talking about.

I think part of it comes with aging, and starting to not be embarrassed by my super gay interests because generic straight people who haven't had an original thought in their head might snicker at it.

[R12] -- my then-bf and I had the OPPOSITE problem while at an Asian food superstore several years ago. Another (white) customer asked if they sold "harissa" there? We replied that was a middle eastern product, directing her to a grocer in town who carries those products. She replied, "Thanks! I thought YOU'D know!" we were like, "Oh sure! Ask the fag couple foodie questions!"

With the jersey lady, I would've responded politely, "Sorry, I don't follow football" and left it at that - no reason to resent her comment.

That's true, R13. I was really only using it as an example because it was kind of the tip of the iceberg and when I finally had enough of people talking about that kind of stuff with me. But I probably should have said what you suggested.

As I get older, I find I have less and less patience for explaining things to well meaning heterosexuals ONE MORE TIME.

I'm more likely to just walk away these days. Life is too short to be ANYBODY's "gay."

r12, a lot of people would take offense with your assertion that being gay means not being into sports or not knowing about the same cultural pasttimes everyone else is. You seem to equate your personal, individual interests and inclinations with what is generally true about gay people. You are making a huge leap.

I'm a get-along-gay. I have friends who are militant gays who are always putting a foot in their mouths.

In the Castro, a friend complained that straight people were taking over. At the Cafe Flore he went up to a woman with a stroller and told her she should go somewhere else, that this is "our" place.

I guess I then becamse a militant gay, but not in the ordinary way. I told my friend he had a lot of nerve going up to a woman like that, that she could be a lesbian and that, even if she wasn't, the rudeness of his remark marked him as a complete asshole.

To this day, we don't talk.

I was going to ask what you meant by that, but fuck it. Yes, I am a militant gay.

R12, you will have a short life if an innocent even like that gets you all worked up.
