The sad truth of things is, that gay people (especially men) face as much if not more discrimination, judgment and prejudice from within the gay community than from outside it. A new wave of pink fascism is trying to take over gay society and all gays should work to stop it.
As a gay man, I have faced an incredible amount of prejudice, but quite a lot from unexpected sources, namely the gay community itself. There is a force within the gay community that attempts to create a standard of "gay identity", telling us how to act, dress, think, drink, dance and make our bodies look. I am vehemently against such a notion, and want to see more done to raise awareness of this problem.
Heterosexual friends of mine have been the best source of comfort, reassurance and confidence boosting in my life, and have always supported me, protected me, stood up for me and stood by me whenever I've been faced with bigotry or prejudice. I want this post to speak up for their way of thinking, and to expose the hypocrisy shrouded in the LGBT community.
