Imagine a world where they told men and women to separate. Where they felt it was better for the protection and benefit of mankind if men and women lived in separate communities. What if they created laws forbidding men and women from even socializing unless it was in mandated government facilities for reproduction ONLY? What if, dating, intimacy (between the sexes) , and all types of things were criminalized based upon some past statistic of date rape, domestic abuse, divorce ratings? What do you think people would start doing? Do you think they would have sex in dark and dank places just to fulfill their urges? Who they sneak around corners and create secret clubs to socialize? OF COURSE THEY WOULD!
(you see how crazy people went over prohibition of alcohol and present questioning of marijauna)

I see now more guys asking more long-term questions besides how long is my d…

I am hopeful for the future in America. The world is changing. We are living in a time where you can live your truth and still live along side with people who may live a different truth. Hey, but that’s okay. Gone are the days of witch burnings…I hope. I can be horribly optimistic at times. But for the men who are sexuality attracted to men, I am hopeful they finally … so many will find peace of mind of being who they are… and loving and living with who they want to be with and creating something… because that’s what being a man
is all about.
