When you’re less than a month away from being 59 years old you’d think by now one would have figured out how to identify oneself.
Since the puberty age hit, albeit at the time I didn’t know there was a name to give to my identity, I knew I liked both the gals and the guys.
Looking at the photos in the girley magazines was as much of a turn on as the guy(s) I was jerking off with, oft leading to more than just a herky-jerky session. And doing the ladies has always been as enjoyable.
So it is until the other day when I read an article I was more than happy to identify as bisexual. Now, as the maid in the movie “Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner” said, “all hell has done broke loose !”.
The article from The Dallas Voice is an interview with Mary Gonzalez who is now Texas’ first openly “lesbian” state representative. Gonzalez came out as bisexual when she was 21 but that has changed now.
Gonzalez doesn’t identify as lesbian or even bisexual as she said in the article.
She identifies as “pansexual,” an orientation many would call bisexual, except pansexuals don’t believe in a gender binary and can be attracted to all gender identities. Gonzalez said she doesn’t believe in a gender binary because “gender identity isn’t the defining part of my attraction.”
I’m old school kids, binary to me is a mathematics term not this new age sexual identity mumbo jumbo. One thing in the article she discussed in not so many words is she’s attracted to gals, guys and the T.
She said it was easier while running her campaign to “identify” as a particular sexual type rather than pansexual as that would confuse folks. Well she’s right on that one. Hell I’m confused now myself.
It took me two years to pass Algebra and I dropped out of Geometry in high school so this binary stuff is beyond me. I’m into simple arithmetic.
All I know is I’m one sexually active and inclusive guy who has enjoyed the company (and more) of the guys, the gals and the T.
Good grief the old days of sexuality were so much easier… if it feels good do it.
Just don’t call me Peter Pan.
