THE SUPERIOR ‘MAN’, THE INFERIOR ‘GAY MAN’





Humans tend to make simple issues
complex. Each of us can subscribe to some minority, and some majority element
that exist in today’s society. There is probably something about each of us
that can fit into almost every box we create and we have the option of defining
ourselves as we choose. With this being the case, why can’t men that like men and those that don’t get along? Now I
know that I am asking for these men to define themselves against their
choosing, but humor me.


Sexuality is a variation of human
existence but never a deviation. We are all cut out from the same cloth,
however like snowflakes no two cloths will ever be the same and I find it SO amazing that the sexual preference
that defines us also divide us. Sexuality is a source of strength, but without
all the variances that divide us, what is
left of us once we subtract all the man-made symbols, labels, and definitions
that we’ve attach to ourselves?
Moreover, how does man not divide himself by the sum of these parts? Is there something we can do so the
homosexual aspect of the male being
NOT cast us into the category of men that are
less?
We’ve struggled for years to find a place within this minority and
for man to reject the entire homosexual man, can that be considered blasphemy?


I think of those who have fought in the
past for our current space we occupy, but I have to wonder @ what point do we tire
of this ‘freedom.’ What would it take for
man to release liberate the homosexual man? What becomes of that little voice
inside of them telling that we are
NOT inferior? Without a bright light in the
darkness, how many more gay men gets
sucked into the emptiness and vice of man?
There is far too much emphasis
on our differences and very little focus on how much we are all the same.
When will a gay man be damned if he’ll feel
inferior and man be damned if he’ll feel superior?
