As an addendum to my last post I (unfortunately) have to explain my stance on the use of these terms for people who hide their discomfit through the use of politically correct language.
The word “gay” irritates me. It sounds like a fairy traipsing through the forest. I don’t identify with it. Other people whose behaviour befits the term can go ahead and use it to describe themselves. I don’t wish to denigrate effeminate fags; there’s a place for all of us. I have to admit I’ve fallen into the Generation Y habit of using the word “gay” to describe things that suck and I should probably try not to use the word in this way.
The word “homosexual” sounds like a disease. It also connotes precision in the classification of sexuality. Sexuality is diverse, complicated and blurry. Humans know next to nothing about it.
The word “fag” is an appropriation of old pejorative word. It has a strong sound. It sounds like me. It sounds like “I don’t give a fuck what you think”. It sounds like rebellion, which is more of an apt description of my sexuality than anything else. I refuse to be held down by either fags or heteros in any area of my life. It encompasses all forms of sexual expression that society tries to quash. If I want to fuck a woman it’s not your business. If I want to fuck a man it’s not your business. If I want to have a vibrating butt plug up me while I run my tongue up and down a wife’s clitoris and a husband’s cock and balls as they fuck that’s none of your business. I’m a soul above sexuality, not limited by my biology or societal constraints. I’m a fag. Fuck off.
