This week's episode of Glee struck a chord with me. The show tackled bullying and teen suicide. Karofsky was bullied by everyone from his school for being gay. He was attacked personally and through cyberspace. What pushed him over the edge was the word "FAG" written on his locker.
I am still in the closet, and am not planning to come out anytime soon because of a number of reasons, primarily for the fear of being ostracized. But I do feel for the character. For being in the situation where everything seemed to be hopeless, and that the only way out was to take away his own life.
I just participated in a social gathering of an all-male community. For the past weeks, I entertained myself by frequenting a chatroom I accidentally stumbled upon while I was blog hopping. In those weeks, I have been acquainted with a number of chatters, PLUs to be exact. And to label it further, chatters came from different locations and preferences. Some are from the USA, middle east, and most of them from different regions in the Philippines. Being visible these past weeks in the chatroom, I was invited in their gathering.
Yesterday, I bought a pair of scissors. For what? You may ask. Well, I've been contemplating this for a long time now. It has been bothering me for a month and I can't seem to decide which approach to take.
It's about my pubes. I don't know if I would trim it again or try shaving. Trimming has been my grooming solution for my hairs down under since I could remember being aware of hygiene down there. But recently, I don't know if I should explore shaving. I saw a video from Gillette about shaving your groin. It's true that trimming the bushes makes the tree look bigger. But should I cut the whole grass or leave some for the sensation?
I remembered a friend sharing his shaving experience back in high school. He said that when his pubes grew back after shaving, it was itchy, like when your beard grows back. It's like that. I don't want to feel uncomfortable when my pubes grow back. It would feel like a sand paper while I walk. Plus, shaving would entail maintenance. I would mean I have to shave regularly.
So I stuck to trimming. But I make sure that I cut is short. What I like about trimming is the smooth feeling of my cock in my hand, just like a baby's skin - silky smooth.
How 'bout you guys, which do you do / prefer, trim or shave?
Hi there! How's your weekend so far? So my blog for tonight is connected with my previous entry.
This afternoon I went to see Art. [I have two entries about him: Round Trip & Postponed] I went to his place because (1) it's been a long time since we saw each other, (2) I missed him, and (3) I was bored. At his house, we sat in their living room and watched TV and talked about our lives. Since it was the the first time we've been together by ourselves since I left, the atmosphere was filled with sexual tension. A tension that later led to pleasurable consummation at the back of their house. But this entry is not about that.
At the road, while waiting for an FX, I decided to make it clear to him what our relationship is. Well, the gist of what I said was, I am not looking for a relationship and I cannot make a commitment, what I can offer is just friendship. He seemed puzzled at first. Friendship with benefits? He thought that we already have an understanding of our situation. Issues of exclusivity and sex came up.
It was hard trying to set things straight. I admit, I may have led him on. So I apologized to him. And he understood. It took him a while before making a decision. I told him that whatever it is that he chooses, I'll respect and understand it. In the end, he decided that we just remain friends, just friends.
Honestly, after that, I just want to stop seeing anyone else and just concentrate on my life and my career. It's hard to think about the feelings of others most of time. Maybe that's why I'm still single.
While standing inside a junction-bound bus, I began to think about relationships, particularly dating. Is dating the same for everybody regardless of preference? Or, are there some differences and exemptions to the rule, if there are such rules? My main concern was 'how do PLU's date?'
