A Pretty Gay Boy...

What a weekend! Had a Christmas do with people at work on Friday night. Then saw Priscilla the musical (FABBBULOUS!) with a group of friends on Saturday night and ended up in G-A-Y till 5:00am on Sunday morning! Totally exhausted!

Anyway, when we were in the club, I had an interesting conversation with one of my girl-friends, which I'd like to share with you all.

"Hey Will, do you think gays are superficial?" she asked out of the blue.
"Errr, some are." I replied.
"Hmm, I think most of them are, especially the pretty ones."
"Why do you say so?" I asked.
"Just now when I was making my way through the crowd, I accidentally landed my hands at the back of this gay boy's waist. He turned around and turned out to be a pretty face, so I politely complimented him, "Wow, you are cute!" and guess what he told me."
"Thank you?"
"No. He said, "I know!" and turned around and carried on dancing!"

At that moment, I couln't stop laughing, but after a while, I started to think maybe she's right, maybe we all are superficial in one way or another, especially pretty gay boys (sorry if you are gay and pretty).

Having said that, it's human nature to love beautiful things, right? I guess as long as someone is not totally obsessed with himself, being superficial is not such a big deal. Agree?

If you want to be really technical, you only need to thank someone for giving you something you needed, wanted or asked for.

For example I never thank people for opening a door for me. Doors should open for as a matter of course, so it is no surprise when they do...therefore why should I thank someone if the door was supposed to open for me anyways?

But seriously, was the pretty gay boy superficial or just being silly? Without getting to know him you can't really judge by one comment. Remember too - for some folks deciding between a blue tie or a green tie to go with that aqua shirt is a really deep decision. Who am I to judge?

Hmm, you do have a point but I do say thank you to the driver when I take off the bus or people who opens the door for me, I guess it's the way I brought up.

The beauty only last two decades... three at most. He'll face the reality when he is 45.

I believe it is part of the gay culture...
Gays love "kitsch" ...
And what is "kitsch"? It is simply an exaggeration of the external appearance.

Believe me "all" gay men would be told " I think you're cute"... and would like to say in reply "I know" ... because also that is an "over the top" answer.
