Monthly Archives: December 2010 Daily Hot Topics: My Gay World: Becoming a Daddy

Aging may be a fact of life and we all have to deal with it, but when you look at the social norms of the gay community juxtaposed against those of mainstream society, it makes me question a lot of things in my life:

Should I still worry about having a six-pack?

Is it wrong to still want to screw guys 24/7 or should I have settled down by now?

Am I pervy if I’m attracted to those guys in their early 20s, or should I just focus on men my own age?

What does it mean if I get off on being called a “Daddy?”

Internalised homophobia: what it is and how to deal – SX News – Australia’s leading gay and lesbian news source

According to Iain R. Williamson, Internalized homophobia is “the negative and distressing thoughts and feelings experienced by lesbians and gay men about their sexuality, and which are attributed to experiences of cultural heterosexism and victimization

In my clinical work i see that internalized homophobia effects every gay mans life to a greater or lesser degree. we all experience this simply by growing up in a Heterosexual world. Even as a openly gay therapist i find my self on occasion becoming aware of how some subtle form of Internalized homophobia has limited my life and the need to work on resolving it. This posting does a great job of describing internalized homophobia and gives some good examples from the movie Brokeback Mountain and how one man has worked through some of these issues.
