A lesson on how to not be a delusional, superficial and hypocritical gay.
Gays, we need to have a talk. Some people out there that need a good lesson in reality and expectations. Let me tell you a little story…
When in Berlin I met a fellow Australian guy while traveling. I asked him about his travels and discovered that he recently moved countries too. Conversation moved to boys, relationships and “types” (as it does) and some things he said struck a real chord with me.
Now let me give some background; this guy was an above average looking fellow, in average shape in his late 20’s, single and educated. When I asked him about the boys back home he said “they’re all terrible, think they are God’s gift to the world and are really superficial”. I was taken back by his ability to throw an entire group of people in a category and under a bus, however I let him continue talking. As we moved on to his “type” he mentioned that he likes athletic, muscled, toned, tall, “straight-acting” guys. He narrowed it down to professional sports guys, quite specifically.
This is a guy with a severe case of delusion and I feel that I have met many people like this before. First of all, if he was to desire to be in a relationship with someone of extreme health and fitness levels, he should probably aim for the same goal himself. He isn’t model status attractive. I’m not being rude when I say this, this is a reality. Here is someone bashing on other gays saying that they are superficial and self righteous and not only is he doing the exact same thing, but he is worse because he is unaware to how damaging his views are. Hypocrites like this infuriate me. It strengthens the stereotype and increasing problem with modern gay men and the image to be perfect. To always be looking out for the next best thing. THAT’S NOT HOW RELATIONSHIPS WORK, GUYS.
In a perfect world, everyone would be blind to attractiveness based on physical appearance. But we don’t live in a perfect world, and this isn’t Barbie’s Malibu Mansion.
