Data Lounge is My Family

I just wanted to share what DL means to me.

I am not like any of my family. I am a young man in my 20's in Small Town, Bible Belt State.

I come on here everyday and share my thoughts about art, literature, sports, politics, actors, films, history, science, and music. From witty discussions in Oscar Wilde Appreciate Threads to the tragic posts about the Romanov Family to bitchy comments like we are Ana Wintour, DL has embraced me with open arms.

I really appreciate it and could not imagine my life without this website.

Dear OP. When I was a gayling, before the concept of gayling existed, I too went in search of the Great Gay Tribe.

Before I turned 16 and was able to drive into Downtown Chicago, I walked the Forrest Preserves Chicagoland. There in the secreted woods were the public toilets. The men that met at the Tea Rooms were from all walks of life and met there because we were ILLEGAL. It was funny, but they never pushed me for sex, I never had sex there, and simply enjoyed the company of my fellow HOMOSEXUASLS. They were an education and they protected me BUT I had to have a job. Every Tea Room had a lookout that would knock on the walls to let the visitors know that someone was coming. When I was there, That was me. That is how I became the Guy by the Door.

Welcome little one. I'm glad we no longer have to have lookouts.

OP: don’t listen to R151 & R152 - they are both known to be terrific assholes.

I will provide the necessary guidance you’ll undoubtedly need to navigate this snake pit.

Nasty, the both of them.

R148 No he did not: from the MLK Institute at Stanford:

Reelected in 1958, Goldwater opposed social welfare programs and continued to criticize the Supreme Court on its school integration stance. [bold]He voted against the Civil Rights Act of 1964.[/bold] King said of Goldwater’s voting record, “While not himself a racist, Mr. Goldwater articulates a philosophy which gives aid and comfort to the racists” (King, 16 July 1964). King feared that Goldwater’s position that “civil rights must be left, by and large to the states” meant “leaving it to the Wallaces and the Barnetts” (King, “The Republican Presidential Nomination”). Electing Goldwater, King said, would plunge the country into a “dark night of social disruption” (King, 21 September 1964).

R160 Greg pretends he lives in the Back Bay, but he really lives in a flooded basement apartment in Ware (yes, that dismal community northeast of Springfield). He used to run a forklift until a pallet of insecticide collapsed on him. Now he's on SSI, and if it weren't for the water and his hideous mother living with him, he wouldn't have many complaints (apart from the complete lack of a love life, of course, but, well, my God).

Darfur Orphan at R31, I'm not sure you want to be adopted into the Bible Belt, no matter how sweet OP is.

You might find you do better in Darfur.

OP, you crazy girl. Nearly every sentence begins with "I" which is a clear indication that you care only about yourself. We're not your family - you just need a forum where you can talk about YOU. STFU

OP I wish I had had DL when I was your age. Hidden in all the hissing are nuggets of advice about love, sex, life goals that I could have used when I was looking for all three.

Wish you a long, happy fulfilled life.

Hi OP, how was your summer?

by Anonymousreply 176August 8, 2023 4:27 AM

R176 Boring. I worked and took summer classes. How about yours?

Also I have been living in Houston for about almost two years.

R179 where would you like to have traveled to?

I really wanted to go to San Francisco or Seattle, but my friend flaked on me. The guy I have been seeing would go with me, but money is tight. I would feel terrible if he paid.

I also have an affluent friend with houses n both Georgia and North Carolina who would pay my way except airfare, but I again would feel uncomfortable having him pay. I'm 26 and he's 76 (no kids, never married but straight, possibly repressed gay), but still would find it rude and uncouth. He keeps asking me when I will visit and I want to, but airfare is like $700-800 and I'm not sure if I want to pay it.

by Anonymousreply 182August 8, 2023 5:08 AM

He has never married and as no kids. When I visit he asks if he can cuddle me because he longs for physical touch. Of course I let him.

I don't think he is gay, but I understand the longing for intimate human contact. It breaks my heart.

I also know he has money ($3M min)) and would not mind being in the will. I have student loans. I hate myself for having those type of thoughts, but I can't help but have them. I really do care about him, he is an old school southern gentleman, a real Chesterfield as they say,
