Today we read the headlines, both Clay Aiken and Lindsey Lohan confirming that they like the mens and a particular lady, respectively. And so today seemed like a good day to say something. No. Stop, relax. People related to me, please resume breathing. I like men (and you’ll stop breathing again when you realize how much I like men) -but you know what bugs me about that? That straight people have to say nothing, and gay people have to announce something so personal. I don’t like the idea that at some point early on in our lives we have to define ourselves, and I do like the idea that we should put a little pride behind everything we confess.
So, in solidarity, I’d like to say that I like handcuffs. I.E. something I shouldn’t have to say, something you prolly don’t need to picture. Something that I hope makes no difference to our friendship.
It’s your turn. Tell us all something intensely personal. Come out. Divert. Be Spartacus. Proudly announce something you like, for a good cause.
