Why Are Gay Men So Afraid Of Themselves?

Why Are Gay Men So Afraid Of Themselves? | Society Through My Eyes | Scoop.it

Why are gay men so afraid of themselves? It’s as if we all wake up in the morning and stare into our mirrors and are repulsed by what stares back at our beautiful faces. We all put on different masks to hide our insecurities: whether they be fear of intimacy, of society, or even ourselves. We’re all just trying to hide the fact that there is a deep current of unhappiness within our community. We compartmentalize ourselves into groups- masc., fem, top, bottom, verse, twink, bears, otters because it’s no longer enough for us to be human and homosexual, we need to faction ourselves even more just to avoid the terrifying prospect of rejection.

Gart Valenc's comment, June 12, 2013 6:33 PM
Organised crime and the financial system go hand in hand. Their close ties have been crucial to the survival and relentless growth of organised crime. The banking system does not only allow drug cartels launder the enormous amount of cash generated by their trade, but more importantly, allow them to recycle, capitalise, reinvest and increase the profits on their astronomical wealth LEGALLY.

Florida's legal drafters accidentially ban smartphones

Tim Grant's curator insight, July 12, 2013 7:05 AM

This from Sharon Clampitt on the dangers of loose legal drafting.  

Florida with a concern about online gambling tried to ban gambling at internet cafes - but the ban defines illegal slot machines as any "system or network of devices" that may be used in a game of chance.  

 

The problem is that this could be construed as a ban on smartphones.
