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 fate...here goes:
  • Life - Still continuing with the very exhausting internship.....social 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

Wish you the best for whatever you doing in life!

Seems like Delhi has most number of Gays in the country and I suppose this number is getting increased daily.

Now I don't have anything against them as well but doing these parades and all. They are infact publicising the fact that they are slightly different than others. Instead of getting sympathy (which is of no need actually) they actually creating air about them which says treat them differently.
Point is we do understand that still, our country hasnt been able to understand them openly. But why so fuss about it. Is sexuality the only thing left in this country?

They are humans, let them be. And being gay is not cool nor it is supposed to be bad even if some jerks think that.

Wohhaa!! u blogged after two mnths and I AM THERE !! In the post and well here in the comments :P

Being Gay and being normal, being gay and being different, being gay and still being a human, these are the discussions which are just overrated these days. I mean if someone straight supports homosexuality and has gay frnds then it's okay, same goes for the one who doesn't mind or care, but it's definitely unacceptable if someone shows it off, or someone whoz obnoxious about the whole thing !

Absolutely loved the epitaph..so touching.. Finally I get to verify that Page 3 is full of gay ppl(not that I have anything against gays).. else i used to think that ppl exaggerate..

I dont think they actually cared about the society... I mean there were ppl who were actually gay and entered the struggle... But the fight was not theirs... It never was...
It was a fight for other ppl... Who were either too bored of their lives and wanted a purpose... Takin M L King's cue or just celebs lookin for good publicity...
It all is a scandal... It always is... But the point is since it is for a good purpose it all is fine...
But then again... It wouldn change anythin drastically... It would still take a lotta time... But yes when ppl see PDA of gay n straight ppl alike... Their narrow worlds of morality would crumble... But then again who cares...
So the point is it is not the struggle of gays against the society... They are not against anythin anyways... Its a struggle of the society with itself... To accept reality... And most of the celebs are the first ones to digest it....

Ya they are lookin for social approval... .... Legal approval and social approval are two totally different things.... But yes its sad that legal approval generally comes before social ones...
Socially it will be disapproved even for the next hundred years... So well... Never Mind...

"hetrosexuality is not usual, its just common "
finally such an important thing is gaining momentum...kudos to all those who made to that parade!
as far as society is concerned it's still not okay wid so many things ya...be it inter-caste marriages (forget abt inter-religion marriage!)
it's high tym that we keep caring abt the society & overlook something which is so very important!!...i think the politician are terrorists in disguise!
