Giving Thanks

I'd like to focus attention in this blog on things we as gay men are thankful for.

We're thankful for being as tolerant of each other and of others, whatever the challenges we face.

We're thankful for having love in our hearts to cope with such adversity.

We're thankful that we are more intelligent than the average schmo and schmuck.

We're thankful that we have spirit and fortitude to see the best in people around us.

We're thankful that we can be bitchy at times. We need this "no shit" attitude to send a message that we won't ever be going back into the cave or closet.

For me, personally, I'm thankful for being a part of a community that is all inclusive and proactive.

So guys, don't blow your wad, not that wad, but your credit card on Black Friday. We got to show the Reds that we can also vote with our wallets. Boycot consumerism and hopefully we can send a message that if our relationships won't be legally recognized, then the rest of society shouldn't be able to benefit from our buying and creative power. GROOOOOOOWL.

Have a great Thanksgiving, guys. Big hairy muscle hugs to each of you. And the only sensible way to break the wishbone is to arm wrestle for it.

You have a great Thanksgiving, too. said...

i totally agree with you stud! i am proud as a man-loving man that i belong to an inclusive community where it doesn't matter where we come from or where we are going as long as the respect for one another as human beings remains intact. and for that, i am thankful. i also fully intend to show the reds that my consumerist disobedience will proliferate a change so that every person, no matter who they love, can enjoy equal rights under all laws.

thanks for the inspiration!
