Don't be A Bitch, Bitch!


Do you ever get the feeling that you’re not the nicest person in the world? The other day at work, the ladies volleyball team from the college across the street was in the store having coffees and looking at sports magazines. I found myself thinking evil thoughts about their matching Nike tracksuits, their extremely butch demeanors and their sweaty, messy Pebble Flintstones hairdos. Now, before I start getting hate mail from lesbians, let me just say that I LOVE ME SUM LESBIANS. Read back through my blog and you’ll see that my best friends are a lesbian couple, Lindsay & Kate. I’m just an evil bitch sometimes and that’s how I roll, ya’ll. I would have had evil thoughts about a table of 22-year-old, flaming twinks that act like they invented GAY as well, so don’t feel bad. Anyway, I had a moment of clarity during this and immediately became very ashamed of myself. I didn’t know these girls, why was I thinking bad things about them? This group of girls was my sisters and they were just being themselves, I should salute that. It struck me that the gay community is often it’s own worse enemy. We don’t stick together and we don’t take up for our own. It’s like when I became HIV positive, as a gay man that had been around HIV for a long time, I had always thought in the back of my mind that if I ever tested positive (God-willing, I had hoped that I never would), the gay community would be there for me and embrace me. Let me just say here and now, that’s not what happened at all. I was shunned, vilified, pushed away and expected to stay home and count my pills until I died. I wasn't supposed to be poz and OUT about it. I was treated better by heterosexuals and isn’t that a shame, that we don’t take care of our own? So often we throw people under the bus if they don’t match our exact ideal of FABULOUS. Aren't we forgetting something here ? Remember that rainbow and it's many colors we so proudly claim as our own ?

Diversity, folks, diversity.

Ya’ll be good and the next time you find yourself fixin' to say something evil about one of your brothers or sisters, buy them a drink instead, ok.
