Small Town People and Sexuality

 With rare exception, people who live in small towns have small-minded views about sexuality. Everyone knows everyone and they are all, at least publicly, heterosexual and married. Some small towns have a token homosexual or homosexual couple. Most think it’s novel and adds a little character to the town. They will accept the homosexual or couple as long as the individuals do not cross the line. Crossing the line would be holding hands in public. Kissing in public would be completely unacceptable. Some small town people will accept a gay or two who is relatively subdued in public and therefore does not force their hand. Small town people do not feel comfortable having to publicly confront homosexuality. It’s okay if it hovers in the background, people know about it but rarely if ever talk about it. It makes for good snickering material at gatherings. People wink and smile. They all know but it’s best to leave it unverbalized. Younger heterosexual makes can frequently act out against homosexuals. This is a way to showcase their masculinity and assure others they are not homosexual, even though sometimes they are homosexual and are in denial at the highest level. Small town heterosexual boys in a pack can be dangerous. They may take on a mob mentality and due to lower levels of intelligence quota, may react much like some animals in the wild. Extreme low levels of intelligence is rampant among small town heterosexual boys and due to self-awareness of this fact may cause extreme, sometimes dangerous actions on their part. Low intelligence in small town boys is often countered with overdriven testosterone levels. This anomaly can be dangerous when the physical dominance outweighs mental functionality. The over-aggression often finds it’s mark on targeted girls or women. This is a subject most definitely to circle back on in future posts here. 

Millions of Straight Men are Secretly Gay

 Millions of men across the planet who appear to be heterosexual, are secretly gay and therefore are not counted in the statistics for the approximate number of gay people in the world. 

Many of these men have been married and have children. Some are still married and keep their gay desire a closely held secret.

These men are not interested in gay politics or being counted as gay. They do not see any good reason or results in announcing their sexuality, and they carry on their liaisons in total secrecy. They are construction workers, mechanics, electricians, plumbers, office workers, blue and white-collar, and they will never be counted as part of the world gay population. 

Many straight-appearing gay men have given considerable thought to their situation, and the consequences of being openly gay are not something they want to risk or experience. They navigate a narrow, subterranean world in which they must be careful at every turn. 

Given the stigma that comes for some people who are openly gay, it can be argued the strategy of the straight gay man serves their purposes and lifestyle, lacking in confrontation and adversity. Some will argue that such a life is unauthentic and lacks the fulfillment of true happiness. As we know, happiness is often what we can make it, and even in the most authentic, fulfilled lives happiness can have low moments because such is life in this complicated world we live. This is but a sketch of this subject, and more is certainly to follow.

Sex the Forbidden

 Sex is the most forbidden thing on Earth. And yet millions of people yearn it, and most of them secretly, in private. Major religions forbid sex on most accounts. Sex is viewed on many levels as a path to procreation. Most religions view habitation on Earth as a pitstop to a higher level of being. Their belief is that existence here is but a temporary being for which there are strict rules that must be followed to achieve the ultimate level. The very life a person is given is chanced on an afterlife dependent on immense sacrifice on Earth. People are asked to put the brakes on their earthly desires, for a chance to live forever  in the after-earth life. The consequences of this sacrifice is tremendous.
