Can't Come Out
But not for the typical reasons, not because I am afraid, or because I am in denial. I can't come out because I hate the stereotype that comes with being gay and I hate that a large number of us fit it. When I see an overly feminine gay man I cringe. I guess I don't want to lose my masculinity in the eyes of my family and friends.
I also come across this issue: Almost every time I tell a straight male friend I am gay they almost always assume I have a thing for them. Its frustrating and it ruins the friendship.
I blame others but maybe its me? Maybe I just have to accept this? Until then I'll just keep this to myself and those closest to me.
