A “like” really wasn’t good enough for your words. Your attitude is refreshing, not just in regards to gay people, self-acceptance and mindset in general.You are correct. My boyfriend and I don't make travel plans based upon our sexuality. We do so based upon our hobbies and interests as people. You see, we believe we were born gay - so it isn't something to be "ashamed" of, nor "proud" of. It simply is one aspect of who we are - not something that is the center of everything we do. We also don't particularly care about what people think of us, so we don't have an obsessive need for constant reassurance that others who seem so fixated on their own sexuality have.
I'm sure we won't be missed - besides, we don't fit the mold of the cartoonish, vain, middle-aged gay guys with bad bleach jobs desperate for attention because they can't let go of their youth, who run around posing in tank tops and short shorts prancing and chanting "look at me look at me I need attention!" There are already far too many experts on that out there, who unfortunately perpetrate the antiquated, 1980's, harmful stereotype of "what it means to be gay". Usually they are the ones who end up being the most negative and hateful towards other gay people who don't go along for that ride.
I feel badly for those who live in the "gay bubble", I really hope for them that someday they peek out and realize that being gay is a completely normal thing, and that most of the rest of the world doesn't care anymore. They really don't. Sure, there will always be pockets, and crazies, and they are not ever going to change, and one needs to accept that. But by and large? The rest of the world has moved on from the issue of who you sleep with or marry. The real goal. We're actually pretty normal now. Bordering on boring, actually.
