5. Gay men only think about sex. Must we have this conversation again? Yes, we — but not all — gay men love sex. Yes, you — but not all — straight heterosexuals like sex! We have something in common. I hate to break the news to you — and I will try to be gentle — but alas, even in gay relationships, the sexual fires do sizzle and fizzle. Like everyone else, ruts arise in our relationships, systems malfunction, sparks don't always fly and yes, the occasional couples coaching session may be required to get hearts aligned. However, at the end of the day, there are households we run, jobs we work at, kids we need to get to school, families we have disagreements with, neighbors we say hello to and beds we snuggle into at night ... just like you ... and all of this outside of our human desires for sex!
What's currently being debated in the Supreme Court is about marriage and equality for all. Yet at the core, it's often overlooked, that while we seem so different, were so much the same — gay, straight, bisexual, transgender, lesbian, questioning or queer. Once the fallacies are removed, we suddenly become equal. So I wonder how many jobs could be created if we pooled all the money being spent to decide who can marry whom? (Just a thought!)
