In his article, Shopping for Pleasure:
To ask about their dress and if it looks nice. To let their wrists fall limper when I'm not so keen on it.
I like men who hide themselves in changing rooms because my eyes may "make them gay. I love being told that this style of stereotyping doesn't exist.
That gay men use it as a way of garnering attention. That young gay men in their 20s should feel appreciated enough by women to be included in the holiest of grails -- a shopping date. That older gay men in their 30s and 40s still have a use for the female population, along with helping them feel better about being single.
I love that gay men exist for the pleasure and amusement of predominantly women, but some men, too. This includes, but is not limited to an odd object of desire and a ratchet mess that makes the lead female look better in movies.
I like that gay men can be "fags" and "queers" instead of just people. I like that gay men are taken at the value of being a token in a group of friends, or as the person you go to when your man won't watch a musical with you. I like knowing that if a gay man makes it into show business he has to hide who he really is because of fear of being boxed in and unable to take on roles that are seen as "straight.
I love how straight women determine when gay men are attractive and when they are not. No self-respecting woman wants an ugly gay.
We must all be fabulous and well-dressed at every stage in their lives. I like that my purpose is to make women feel better about themselves.
At least their mess is small in comparison to mine -- that makes me feel great. I enjoy my privacy being evaded with the shake of my hand.
I like the sadness I feel when I walk around this world -- where I am constantly reminded that it was not made for me. Not made for my love stories. I like the daily reminders that how I live is wrong -- the back-handed comments that if I were straight and normal it would be easier.
I like that we all get so wrapped up in ourselves and our own forms of equality that we forget the smaller daily struggles of others. Because alone, we are most important and together we can do nothing but fail. I like that a lot. I like people rolling their eyes when I say that gay people aren't equal.
Marriage isn't everything to us all. I love parents who pray their child doesn't wake up gay -- as if any of this is a choice I would wish upon someone. To feel constantly out of place in this world, to never feeling like I fit. I like that women think it's okay to make me go shopping with them.
I love it all.Arthur Quiller-Couch, ed. The Oxford Book of English Verse: – John Sheffield, Duke of Buckinghamshire. – On One who died discovering her Kindness.
