I AM...

¿HOW ABOUT SOME DIVERSITY RECOGNITION AMONG GAY N' STRAIGHT MEN?





What do
you do when you cannot be your gay self and you are forced to accept the decrepit
abyss around you called masculinity by hetero men?
The hetero man’s idea about being a man is not varied in the
least bit and they are not about accepting the debilitating evaluation of the
male potential by accepting the gay man on his terms. I know some would say, that
isn’t fair to gay/straight relationships
that work, but those are far few and in-between. I speak to the gay/straight relationship where the gay is pushed to dance with a female, spank the stripper on her ass or
indulge in a conversation where men talk  about women they want to get with.


For what it's worth, I've always held the notion that one day we
as men will realize that we are all the same yet different; and that homosexuality
will no longer come @ the expense of manhood, but until that day…I don’t pretend
to be anyone other than me and I’ve been told by others they weren’t sure if I am
gay or not. I guess in the over all scheme of things, we still have the same
masculine tendencies; however I think we gay men are MORE balanced. Therefore in the spirit of
 MALE unity and with all due respect to the
male gender, I submit that it is absolutely amazing how so MANY of us gullibly accept something simply because it exists.





Unfortunately a large segment of gay men will embrace and put
their energy into a male bonding with a ‘straight’
man without ever really analyzing the impact, for better or for worse, it may
have upon them and their posterity for generations to come. We cannot seriously
do irrelevant activities or believe that if we are a certain way with the ‘straight’ men we keep company with that
it will somehow lead to the forgetfulness of our homosexuality. Tell me: how can we find our way home by forgetting
how we got to where we are now? How can we find our way home without figuring
out how we got lost in the first place?





I do
not have gay male pride although I am gay, male and prideful; I believe we MUST take accountability for manhood on
an individual AND collective level. As
the world evolves, I believe it is time to retool what we feel a man is. I find
it impossible to take pride in being ‘straight’
because it is not something that I worked for and I get that it is the
same for hetero men. However, we all need to find a way to be SECURE in our existence. I can stand
behind any movement that celebrates diversity but find it strange that we cannot/will not find a way to
incorporate DIVERSITY RECOGNITION into
this thing we call masculinity.

If you ever leave me
baby,
Leave some morphine at my door
‘Cause it would take a whole lot of medication
To realize what we used to have,
We don’t have it anymore.

There’s no religion that could save me
No matter how long my knees are on the floor
So keep in mind all the sacrifices I’m makin’
Will keep you by my side
Will keep you from walkin’ out the door.

[Chorus]
Cause there’ll be no sunlight
If I lose you, baby
There’ll be no clear skies
If I lose you, baby
Just like the clouds
My eyes will do the same, if you walk away
Everyday it will rain, rain, rain...

I’ll never be your mother’s favorite
Your daddy can’t even look me in the eye
Oooh if I was in their shoes, I’d be doing the
same thing
Sayin there goes my little girl
Walkin’ with that troublesome guy

But they’re just afraid of something they can’t
understand
Oooh well little darlin’ watch me change their minds
Yeah for you I’ll try I’ll try I’ll try I’ll try
I’ll pick up these broken pieces ’til I’m bleeding
If that’ll make you mine

[Chorus]
Cause there’ll be no sunlight
If I lose you, baby
There’ll be no clear skies
If I lose you, baby
Just like the clouds
My eyes will do the same if you walk away
Everyday it will rain, rain, rain...

[Bridge]
Don’t just say, goodbye
Don’t just say, goodbye
I’ll pick up these broken pieces ’til I’m bleeding
If that’ll make it right

[Chorus]
Cause there’ll be no sunlight
If I lose you, baby
There’ll be no clear skies
If I lose you, baby
Just like the clouds
My eyes will do the same if you walk away
Everyday it will rain, rain, rain...
