Gay me some love!

Alright, was just reading another blog here and realized that I haven't updated this page in two whole months. gasp gasp....that has to be the longest time that I stayed away from this page ever since I made it. Anyhow, I'm back and how!
Update on life, love and goes:
  • Life - Still continuing with the very exhausting life is finished, friends have graduated, got married, got lost and I'm still here, slogging. But on second thoughts, won't crib about it anymore coz nobody really wants to read how pathetic someone else's life is. Gotta say, that is the only lesson I've learnt about working for page 3. People would always want to read about  how exciting and happening other's lives are, not otherwise.
  • Love - Hmm, as peter puts it aptly, no love lost, no love found! :((
  • Fate - has somehow entered into a secret liaison with all my enemies (wondering if I have any) and is currently being loyal to them. All their imaginary banes are proving effective now.
Ahem, now that the cribbing part is over. Lets get back to some serious blogging. At times, when I'm not working and my mind is realllly empty (yes, that happens too), I wonder how many gay friends one can possibly have or even how many gay people one know of. Before coming to page 3, I knew of only one gay friend. He was my best friend way back in high school and at that point of time, I even refused to acknowledge the fact that he was a homo. I just took him as my best girlfriend in the garb of a guy. But today, I can name at least 30 gay people I know even in my sleep. They are like everywhere....designers, stylists, businessmen, actors, sportsmen. Initially, my reaction would be like..."whoa, is he gay? I never knew that" and pat would come the reply, "Really? Didn't knew? What, were you sleeping all this while"?

Not that I have anything against them. I'm a supporter of gay rights. And not a closet supporter either. From the time I was a kid, I have never been able to understand attacks upon the gay community. There are so many qualities that make up a human being... by the time I get through with all the things that I really admire about people, what they do with their private parts is probably so low on the list that it is irrelevant. In fact, most of them are really nice. They are far more in touch with their sensitive side, are genuinely friendly or someone with whom you could have the most pleasant conversations ever. But the handpicked few who are snooty, I mentally scream at them, "Beyond you, BITCH". But then, those much-famous "straight" celebs could give them a run for their money in terms being snooty too.
It's the prejudice that other straight men have against them that disturbs me. Not that I'm really fond of the much famous MCP mentality that guys in Delhi have...but every time that someone passes a snide remark on someones sexual orientation, I feel like going ahead and reprimanding them (though I never do it). Why does it bother you if someone chooses to sleep with a guy or a girl or Why on earth are you getting so uncomfortable if the person concerned is comfortable in his own skin? Wasn't Section 377 decriminalised more than a year ago?

It's not that they have committed some serious crime or something. If they finally have the guts to come out of the closet, why can't these narrow minded people come out of their obnoxiousness and hypocritical standards. Seriously, beyond me!

I've met very few dumb gay guys. It takes some intelligence and insight to figure out you're gay and then a tremendous amount of balls to live it and live it proudly. ~Jason Bateman
