LABEL OVER ATTRACTION...





What do you do when you meet a man that wears his
bisexuality as a badge of sexually honor?
He tells you how many gay men he got with because he ‘labels’ himself as “bi” and he shows you his photo, you have to wonder if telling the
truth or are gay men just desperate because you are sure that 99.9% of the gay
men you know wouldn’t give him the time of day. He even tells you that most of the
men he chats with tell him he isn’t their type but the bisexual label makes
them look pass that. Now I get that bisexuality is an enigma for many us, yet I
can’t help but wonder for those of us that ‘entertain’
a ‘bisexual’ guy in this vain, does he have to have some sex appeal to get
some or does have to be just bi?


WE are a culture that is consumed by the notion of HETEROSEXUALITY
and I can see why many gay men tend to embrace the bisexual
man; but does the very existence of this
guy that I was chatting with jab holes in the conventional wisdom of the sexuality
of the men he was chatting because he is showing that they are
NOT
greater than the sum of their parts?
Don’t
you find it scary that some
gay men sorting
each other by such a simple label?
When
a gay man get that itch and go after that guy that has a wife/girlfriend because in many of his mind him being bi gives him that
extra something, something, is he just
getting merely what he deserves if he sleeps with him when he is more than
likely
NOT attracted to him?  


Acceptance
is the BIGGEST issue for all gay men;
many of us spend a lifetime being who others want us to be. In an attempt to
fit in and be accepted by society, we have to reject who they are. In my honest
opinion, I feel that if any gay man accept another man just because he says he
is bi ONLY perpetuate what many think about the sexuality of gay men, TALK
ABOUT LABEL OVER ATTRACTION. 

ANDY WHITFIELD DOCUMENTARY 'BE HERE NOW' SEEKS FANS' HELP TO FINISH FILM





Spartacus: Blood and Sand fans and Andy Whitfield fans alike were devastated
when the actor passed away 18 months after being
diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma at the age of 39
.





The popular star of the Starz series fought valiantly
(“We were fortunate to have worked with Andy in Spartacus and
came to know that the man who played a champion on-screen was also a champion
in his own life,” said Starz president and CEO Chris Albrecht at the time of
Whitfield’s death), as you can see below in the moving trailer for a
documentary about the actor’s battle, called Be Here Now.


Whitfield was given only a 25%
chance for survival when his lymphoma came back, right before he was due to
return to his hit show. He and his wife Vashti set out with filmmakers to
explore his medical and alternative healing options, and the movie takes an
unflinching look at one man’s struggle against illness.





The filmmakers, led by Lilibet Foster, now need to
raise the last bit of funding to finish editing the film with the hope it will
eventually get distribution and are asking fans to donate to the cause through Kickstarter.





Take a look at the footage below for a sense of the
project (but maybe keep some tissues nearby before you press play).
