My favorite term for my gay friends is bitch. I don't ever not start a phone conversation with my gays without a hearty "Hey bitch!!!"

Then I only personally have two gay friends so I might not be the best source of info. scratch

Everyone play nice. I think we're in an area where the shades of gray outstrip the black and white of it, and that region and/or experience play a large factor in what's considered acceptable in this case.

Yes, there is a term for female homosexuals and not for male homosexuals. I don't know why this is the case; probably because Kinsey referred to 'gay men' and 'lesbians' in his studies, a pattern followed by subsequent sexual scientists. Perhaps if Kinsey had supplied us with a moniker to use, this debate would have been deemed unnecessary. But it was a lot to ask of a man who was jeopardizing his career, his good name, and playing fast and loose with his sexual orientation to come up with a whole new name for us, especially when we were still considered criminal deviants at the time, and the press supplied the populace with plenty of choice alternatives.

I think we're all mature enough and family enough here to admit that this is a point where we can all just agree to disagree and respect each others' boundaries. I feel confident that Wondy won't use the term queer around me should we ever be in a room together, and that's all that's important. Smile

Now everyone be nice.

Aww, Doug. Smile LOVE YOU, MEAN IT! Wink

You did take excellent care of me when I wanted to die and for that I owe you a killer reacharound.

I had recently heard a report that a lot of gay people don't like the term "homosexual". Until I heard that, I had always assumed homosexual was just the PC term for gay. But apparently many believe it has a negative connotation and there have been studies and polling done to back that up. I think they did a poll asking people if they would be ok with "gay service members serving openly in the military" and then they asked if they would be ok with "homosexual service members serving openly in the military." The poll showed that "gay" polled much better than "homosexual." They attributed it mostly to years of anti-gay folk putting a negative spin on the word...plus it seems like anything with the word "sex" in it makes people put their guard up. What are your thoughts on that, Doug?

That's interesting. I would like to read/hear that report.

But to be fair, I'm more comfortable referring to myself as gay rather than homosexual...and I imagine that is due to the negative connotations perpetrated by members of the evangelical clergy and anti-gay bias. (Think about 'Gaaaaaay' as opposed to HOmoSEXuAL!', which seems to be the most popular way of intonation when used in sermons.)

Also, homosexuality was listed for a long time as a psychiatrically deviant behavior, subject to cures like ECT and Thorazine. So, 'homosexuals' were deviant, according to modern psychiatry, and a term like 'gay' doesn't carry that same stigma with it. I'd rather be considered a happy bachelor than a deviant. Smile

But I can see where I wouldn't be unique in thinking like that. After all, it's not HLBTQi...it's GLBTQi.

I like pretty much any cookie, so long as it's not peanut butter. I love peanut butter as a spread, but PB cookies make me physically ill. EVERY TIME.

Given my druthers, I could happily eat Snickerdoodles until my heart stopped. I'm also a fan of ginger snaps and macaroons.

And chocolate chip, of course. I have a soft spot for Chips Ahoy! cookies, but I only like them with Coca-Cola. Oreos and Fudge Sandwich cookies are why God gave us milk for dunking.

On a scale of 1-10, 1 being no pain and 10 being the worst pain you can imagine, how bad did it hurt the first time?

The first successful time? About a 3. Not very much. But there were a couple of attempts before that were like a 15 or 30, and were not pleasant. Which is unfortunate, because it was something I seriously wanted to do for/with my first lover, but being young and inexperienced, we didn't know about stretching and foreplay to facilitate things.

Personally, I don't know how other people did it as young as they claim. I think it's likely a lot of bull on their part.

Thanks for the insight. I saw it on The Young Turks...here are the links:



Here's the follow up interview with somebody that doesn't like the term homosexual.




I always find it really interesting how much words and labels make a difference in swaying public opinion.

Snickerdoodles rock my socks!

Never really thought about "homosexual" being grating to hear. Especially with the sermon example. "Heathens and homosexuals, committing adultery and sodomy. The evils among us, yadda-yadda, 'cynicism & unfair judgement ad nauseum'."

And question 3: With your gay friends/family/acquaintances, do you find them to be more mature or mature faster than straight friends/family/acquaintances? At least socially. (Q4) Do you think it's due to conditionings of empathy towards others caused by their own disparagements from society?

I know, I know, I'm totally asking reasonable questions. Seriously almost asked you a gimp question. Laughing
