M.I.A. No More

Washington, D.C., is WONDERFUL! Things have been going so well for me! I can’t tell you how fun it has been! Okay, enough with the exclamation points.

I’m finally settled into my new home, and now I can stop being so transient. Last month I moved two different times. It stunk. But now I have Internet access and life is good. Admittedly, there was a good aspect to being Internetless – no porn. I haven’t looked at the stuff for three weeks now. Very exciting! Though it may be a result of my upbringing, I’ve found that not looking at the stuff makes me feel much better inside. If only I could figure out how to make it last. Maybe I should just continue living as a transient. Hmmmm ...

Thank you all for commenting on my blog. I wish I had time to respond to each comment. At this point, I don’t have that kind of time, but I have read all of them.

I appreciate all your well wishes regarding my recent graduation and move to D.C. Things are good here.

Regarding my poll … I agree that “getting people off my back” is probably not reason enough to come out. Though I’d love to stop “hiding” this from people, it’s probably best I be selective when choosing people to tell. So far, I haven’t done anything. I think I might tell one of my best friends, but the moment will have to be right. I don’t want to just bring it up randomly. “So, have I ever mentioned that I’m gay?” That would go over like a pregnant high jumper.

As one commenter already noted, I still have at least a year before I’m a menace to society (see Brigham Young quotes). No need to worry about things yet. By the way, Kevin, you said to shoot you an email, but I don’t have your email address. Everyone already knows mine, so feel free to email me directly: gay.mormon@yahoo.com.

Darcy, I wish I were more confident in my gaydar. Unfortunately, I think I am quick to find “gay traits” in guys, even though they aren’t homosexual at all.

Patmos, there’s no need to drop off the radar (I feel a bit hypocritical saying that considering the past two months). I always really enjoyed your comments, so please continue to comment, if you still read this ever.

I tend to agree with George that questioning one’s beliefs can be a very healthy exercise. After all, sometimes the status quo is wrong. Not always, but sometimes.

Robert said he was happy I identify myself as “gay.” Though I openly admit to being gay, I must also openly confess that I have not embraced the gay culture. Some contend that being “gay” involves a cultural shift – which I have not experienced. I personally think “same-sex attraction” is a euphemism. When it comes down to it, both gay guys and same-sex attracted guys like men.

I have to say that I’m jealous of Fellow!! I'd love to live a life where I don't feel like I am hiding anything. I'd love for people to know that I struggle with homosexuality. Yet, I'd love to still have the option of living as a heterosexual, even though people know I'm gay. I didn't think such a life was possible, but it seems as though Fellow is living that life.

More comments please…
