that’s pretty selfish, gays (jump to 2:10)
There's a basic concept of homosexuality that you may be overlooking: The Closet
At one point or another an openly gay man finds himself going back into the Closet. Usually (hopefully) it is only for a moment. A stranger makes a rude comment and you don't feel like defending all gay men everywhere so you let it slide.*
And you hate it.
You hate it because that brief moment back inside the Closet makes you remember when you were trapped there.
And you realize the further distant the Wretched Box of Self-Loathing is and the more open you become the happier and happier you are.
For surely, man was not meant to live trapped in deception.
I'm not, however, talking about you, dear homosexual. I’m talking about that other person. The one you put there. The one you shoved in the Closet.
As it turns out, the major principle of homosexuality that you may be overlooking is actually this: No One Man Leaves Unless Another Takes His Place.
Think of the first person you ever told. Let me guess. You swore them to secrecy, didn’t you? Are they still locked in? Are they still in the closet unable to leave because you still hold the key?
Have you become their jailer?
