    Considering the stereotype that gays have good sense of style, I take looking gay as a compliment.

    One time at a party many years ago when I was a great deal younger, I was gay-bashed pretty heavily. Not surprisingly, another young woman asked "Are you a fag?" I did not know her, and I hadn't said a word to her or anybody really. I did stick out. Irritated, I said, "Yes, I am." The entire room then proceeded to gay bash me and insult me. This is no joke. I'd never experienced such extreme homophobia. I just left.

    That brings me to another thing... How gross is it how so many women get off on attempting to emasculate men in public, and use other men to create conflict on their behalf? The whole "fighting over me" thing makes me sick.

    I get mistaken for gay occasionally. Not too worried about it.

    I got CALLED gay in high school. Once. Guy called me a fag. I walked over to him, very calmly asked what he'd said (wanted to make sure I'd heard him correctly, it was unsolicited) and when he confirmed my suspicion, I picked him and the chair he was sitting in up and chucked him headlong into the wall.

    Funnily enough, no-one called me gay after that.

    Yeah, some of my anecdotes are kinda cool, but the truth is I was just a nasty, violent little fuck when I was younger. Chances are I probably started it somehow, and just forgot that part of the incident.

    I'm teaching Kant to non-philosophy majors. Here's what I said to them: "On your exam I am going to ask you to define price. When you see that question, write 'value as means.' Those are the magic words. Don't try to improv and use different words. Just say that. If you try to improv, you will say something false." I just graded their exams. Not a god-damned one of them said the magic words. Instead they said something false, exactly as I told them they would. I swear, my conversations with Genevieve (the cat) are more productive.

    Of all of the gay people that I know very few of them dress well. I don't understand the stereotype. I will say that I have noticed that they have big opinions on fashion, but rarely are they SF approved.


    That is awful. I am sorry this happened to you. WTF is wrong with people?

    Oh yeah, women like that aren't worth it.


    A lot of people used to think I was gay. I don't know what happened. My best friend has a hard time meeting girls in a romantic sort of way because they all think he is gay. This one he was seriously presuing had a hard time dating him because she didn't believe that he wasn't gay. I think that is ridiculous. He doesn't question is sexulaity and never has.


    That situation is like a philosophy course in itself.

    I took one or two philosophy courses in college and I liked them a great deal. They were sort of all over the place though, excerpts from this, that guy said that and la la la. If I want to get into it where do I start and how do I interpret it?

    I recently read Meditations by Marcus Aurelius. Very "of the people".
