Let me just start of by saying that guest blogging is hard. Especially if you have your own blog to keep up with. But I am really enjoying my time here!
So, let's talk about the ultimate decision most gay men will have to make in their lifetime - the coming out of the closet. As you probably already know (or maybe not), Jase will be celebrating his 9th month Coming Out anniversary next month. With him wearing pink shirts during Fleet Week and women's Diesel pants, you wouldn't think he just came out right? Yes boys and girls, Jase is a "newbie"! And I just love it that he came out in full force! It's like "Yes, I'm gay! AND? AND? Jealous?! Don't hate!" or "Yes! I'm gay! Choke on it bitch!". Ok, maybe that's a little bit too much. Sorry.
Anyway, coming out is hard. Especially if you live in an Asian household, where culture and tradition dictates homosexuality as evil. I can't speak for my Asian cousins, but being the Philippines is predominantly a Catholic country, homosexuality is an abomination to Christianity and the society. Though perfectly accepted nowadays, there's still that hesitance of the Asian male coming out to his family and to society. It's not something of the norm.
Meanwhile, I don't have a coming out anniversary. Not that my family won't understand. I'm pretty sure they will, as my family is quite liberated in a lot of ways. And, I'm sure they already have an inkling. It's just that we don't talk about it, that's all. It's sort of like, "Don't ask, don't tell" type of thing. I mean, is it really necessary to come out? I'm sure it's a great feeling to get that out of your system, but I'm still not getting the whole concept. Don't get me wrong! I have a lot of respect for people who came out to their families and friends, but I'm still a little bit clueless as to the whole purpose of it. Enlighten me gorgeous people!
I'm done posting for today. I'm beat!
