I was sitting by the bar overlooking the beach on an island far far away from Australia. It was summer here in Europe and the tourists had flocked here to enjoy the warm weather and amazing scenery.
As I sat there waiting for a friend to arrive, I overheard a familiar accent ordering a drink, it was a guy from Australia.
“A familiar accent, Australian?” I said to him.
“Yup, I’m from Sydney, you?” He responded. I told him where I’m from.
He was a similar age to me, a guy escaping the Australian winter for a month before going back to his mindless Government job upon his return.
As I had just arrived to this island, I thought I could ask about the places to visit in order to understand the best areas to visit. We sat and talked for a while about the beach, the weather and so on, I brought up the topic of local girls and he seemed rather silent and unable to contribute. I thought he was either married or had a long term girlfriend.
“So are you married or something?” I asked casually
“Dude, I’m gay” he said with a slight tone of annoyance in his voice. As if he expected me to know. I didn’t notice any signs that he swung that way initially.
I talked a bit more and asked him when he realised he was a homosexual.
“I didn’t know until after high school, I couldn’t get along well with girls and they didn’t seem to want me or be attracted to me, then I did it with a guy and it felt good, I felt pleasure and I never really looked back since then” He responded.
“So you’ve never actually been with a girl before” I asked
“Nope” he said with a smile
Before my friend arrived, we talked a bit more about his upbringing. It turns out he grew up in a broken home with his dad cheating on his mum, eventually they divorced when he was 10 years old and his mum never really seemed to recover from that. No siblings and positive male role model really made it hard for this guy.
I wonder if he really is gay or did being unsuccessful with women and growing up in an environment which pedastalises the homo life push him towards this lifestyle choice. It’s well known that Gays are hypersexual, and being somewhat confused through no heterosexual male reinforcement in your life could potentially lead you to experiment with men, after all being a hapless virgin probably wasn’t much better. But it has me thinking, how much of homosexuality is actually stemming from within an individual verses external factors.
These days not only should you not say anything negative towards homosexuals but the expectation is that you must accept and actively support this lifestyle choice, turning a blind eye to it will soon be seen as negative. Western culture is slowly viewing natural heterosexual desires to be “creepy” and is disgraced while criticism of homosexual lifestyle is no longer allowed. This modern sinking western culture is very clear-cut that when it comes to sexuality, only heterosexuality can be mocked, particularly when it relates to men. Can we really be surprised with events that have occurred earlier this year?
Think about it, the support for gays is immense with networks continually being advertised amongst teens in the event something potentially effects them. But is there support for straight boys who desire women? Not at all, that’s creepy. You must be nice to a girl and maybe, just maybe she will spread her legs for you.
I remember Ian Thorpe finally coming out, and all I could hear was support in the media and general public, like ok, that’s fine, but is there any support for a male that needs help in order to lead a successful heterosexual life?
Ian Thorpe mentioned in his interview
“I’m comfortable saying I’m a gay man. And I don’t want young people to feel the same way that I did. You can grow up, you can be comfortable and you can be gay.”
These days we are conditioned to accept homosexuality from such a young age that it’s very unlikely that the majority of people will provide you with discomfort, maybe traditional parents from different backgrounds but the wider community has accepted and promoted homosexuality
If you’re a gay boy and you’re teased about your sexuality, then the person teasing you will face some severe consequences, but if you’re straight and you’re teased in a similar way, nothing will happen, particularly if it was a girl teasing you. If you’re a boy wanting assistance with heterosexuality, or sex with a woman, that’s just simply not on you privileged creep. It just doesn’t make sense that indirectly the culture in the Anglosphere is promoting the homosexual life, as gender roles continue to be left more confused and the thought of the nuclear family erodes into a distant memory.
No wonder so many young people of today are confused, it just makes me wonder how many more of these cases of men being slowly pushed towards homosexuality by their environment we will encounter.
