Wow, I am beside myself with anger and resentment. I stumbled across someone else’s blog ( and by stumbled I mean I got there through numerous other links and such and can’t remember how I got there) And saw an article he posted by one of the high muckety mucks of the Southern Baptist Convention. We are now being blamed for the break down of heterosexual males ability to form lasting friendships with other straight males. The guy stated that with movies like Brokeback Mountain being accepted into the mainstream “regular hetero males will have less likelyhood to form bonds with other straight guys because of the misconception that they may be thought to be homosexual.”

Now I don’t know about everyone and I can only speak for myself when I tell you that I have many straight male friends that hang out with P and myself on a regular basis that dont care one iota that we are fags. If these hetero men are comfortable enough around us to go with us to gay and straight bars alike, and have great times, then how can we be blamed for them not being able to have concrete hetero male friendships? Why ,once again, are the fingers being pointed at us for the demoralization and breakdown of society? I mean come on now , really folks, can’t you find any other scapegoat to pin this one on ?

And for that matter, I find no basis for the argument anywhere I have been lately. They are telling us that straight guys are afaid to be seen together in public in case someone might target them as a homo, however, you still see the gaggles of straight men hanging out all over the place. In malls, at bars, at concerts and sporting events, they are still fairly prevelant in my way of thinking.

I refuse to be the reason that they can’t make friends of their own ilk. It is not my fault and I really feel it is a non-issue. The boy ( or in this case hate filled judgemental fundamental christian “scholar” ) who cried wolf will not cut it this time . I think I am going to church this week to hug all the straight boys then lock lips with P for the whole sermon !!!

End rant
