The Teminology of Sexuality (Thoughts)


Although I say I am gay, I don't like the label. Why? Being gay implies that you are always happy, bright and lively. That is definitely not always true. It also implies that the opposite (i.e. heterosexuals) are not. Although I have encountered some that are sad, lifeless and dull, I cannot say that is true of all heteros.
Neither do I like the term straight because if a hetero is straight, then I must be crooked. A little bent, maybe. But crooked? No!
How about queer? Nah! The old definition of queer is strange. I know a lot of heteros that are lot stranger than I.
And normal? What's that? Who wants to be normal anyway? We all want to be extraordinary in some way.
Saying heteros are normal is saying that I am abnormal. I am a very normal homosexual.
There are so many terms / labels for us that it is impossible to go into them all.
Actually, I like homosexeual the best. It may sound clinical but the Latin "homo" simply means man. Sexual speaks for itself. I am a homosexual, a sexual man. I like that.
