I Hate Gays...

Now here's something very interesting - Gay men who don't want (hate is a too strong word) to be gay. Contradicting huh? Well, actually no. I've to say sometimes I feel the same way, but not as EXTREME as the first guy who is so messed up and determine to 'turn' straight when he reaches 30?! Personally, I always believe that we can't control or choose our sexuality. I mean, it's not something we become, it's something we are! Having said that, I do get frustrated of the whole gay stereotype and open relationship thing. Not to mention I'm still struggling to come out of the closet...





After watching the show, I think I would like to live my life as guy number two. He's out yet he doesn't fit the stereotype, but is willing to explore a different side of the wide gay world. Good on him and thanks for the great show Tyra! They should have this show in the UK!

I watched this the other day and what struck me was that the first guy in particular just hadn't come to terms with/embraced his sexuality, it takes some of us longer, and that it is pointless getting angry with him when what he really needs is time and friends to help him work out who he is.
The guy who got married and has a child, well, they got themselves into a difficult situation and no doubt it is a hard lesson learned but they both seem pretty aware of the mistakes they've made and what they need to do both for themselves and the child. I have hopes that their situation wont turn out too badly.

I'm not a really big fan of Tyra's but I must admit that this one was really interesting. I seriously don't know how you can live hating yourself that much. I see myself as a proud gay man and I am what I am. I just hope those three guys will realize someday that they should just love themselves and that they can't change their sexuality, it's part of them, it's what makes them unique and interesting.

I have to say my jaw was hanging to my toes half the time through the first guy. It is abundantly clear that all of them are affected by their upbringing and need to come to terms with there sexuality. What I don't get is why he waiting 11 years to go "straight" that is ridiculous in of it self. I guess I have been gay and happy with it for so long I do not remember what it is like to hate yourself that much. I really hope PR8 that you do not hate yourself, you seem like a great guy with a lot going for you, love yourself and others will follow. Cheers, Dougie

Thanks so much for posting this! It was really informative, and no doubt every gay male has felt like one of these guys at one point or another.

I am like the guy number two...
I have the impression that every guy in gay bars wants only sex. Plus, for some reason I am afraid to go there by myself.
I have flirted men in other places, but most of the times I bump into straight men! Damn!
I wish I had a gay friend. It would be a lot easier!
Tyra is great!! She really seems to care about society!!
