My New Year’s Thoughts on Being “A Real Man”

What’s “a real man?”

No H8 tattoo

No Hate Tattoo

Surely, being an openly gay man has to be near the top of the list. After all, it takes courage to embrace who you are and publicly own it — especially when so many believe that if you’re not a heterosexual, you’re living a “life style” that is sick, vile, or evil.

Hetero men should ask themselves if they would have the cojones to be stand up in a hostile society and claim an identity that is still widely despised. If they’re honest, my guess is that they would, if nothing else, come away with a profound sense of respect for those “real men” who have come out.

 
Best wishes to all for a New Year full of love, not hate.
