I know, right. Isn't it just the worst? I get yelled at from cars when I go to the shops. Thank shit they don't know I'm gay, too, that would be a true nightmare.

I don't consider myself a Tory, but I can't say I'm too thrilled about the Labour party either.
Tory vs Labour is pretty much do you prefer having lung cancer or having kidney failure. Both are REALLY fucking bad, but at least the latter can be controlled and dealt with, you can live with it. Lung cancer, no, not really. Either way, both options suck.

I've never managed to find an opening into politics, save for just regurgitating others' opinions, so I try to distance myself from it for the most part. You can never be totally objective when trying to garner perspective from people's belief, and I tend to end up finding it pretty irrelevant after awhile. People have no idea how clueless I am about stuff outside my small circle of interests.

Maybe I should just say fuck it, and vote for the Monster Raving Loony party next election :P
Aren't they defunct?

Didn't know that. An end to an era, it would seem.

On another note, I'm fairly certain my dad considers me asexual. He brought up the subject of my sexuality again today, and while I'm trying not to steer him to that conclusion, it sort of ends up that way. I find it really difficult to talk about, so whenever he brings it up, the conversation tends to go:

"Are you developing any sexual interest yet?"
"Um... I dunno. I guess. Not really. I dunno."

I don't mean to lead him to false conclusions, but I'm not really comfortable enough to set him straight. It doesn't help that, until recently, I really wanted to be sexually uninterested. I used to be a huge misanthropist, and it took a lot of coming to terms with that aspect of my personality. I know he'd be fine with however I am (which is awesome and I try not to take for granted), and he knows I'm not straight regardless of my libido, but this time he had this whole speech about how great it is I'm not confined by the vices of everyone else, and that it helps make everything much less complicated. All I could think is how brilliant that really would be. It would certainly solve a few of my problems.

So I basically just feel hopeless, misunderstood and guilty. Sorry about the vent.

Actually, I was more surprised at you being English than "OH NO, KENT IS SHIT!".

As much as I wish I could simply not give a fuck about politics, it's my degree to actually care. Which is one of the depressing parts of the degree. Also, as much as people try to be objective, most of it boils down to subjectivity. Do you want to live in a place where the economic state is reflective of pre-WWII or a dirty dirty socialist state? That's really much it.

Kent is fine, it's just the Tonbridge area I'm not a fan of. I really need to reclaim my British heritage; even my accent is very weak from exposure to American media. I'm thinking of affecting a Stephen Fry, but I don't know if I can pull it off.

Either way, at least we're not governed by the BNP.

Not sure how many of you like really punk music, but I do, and I recently heard this song by Screeching Weasel and absolutely loved it.

Just thought I'd share.

I have some of his DNA. In his latest gig in Brighton he wore a green surgical glove and flung it into the audiance. Hit me in the face. And so now I can say: Jello Biafro fingered me.

But he did it through latex? He fingered you with a hand-condom.

Quite, quite. I have it on my shelf now. I wonder how much someone would pay for it. Although that's not what I'm going to do because of how utterly contradictory it would be. Him and myself being anarchists.

I'm home alone this week, and decided that it'd be a great chance to cut loose.
I'm not out as a bisexual male, so it's difficult for me to do this kind of thing usually.
Anyway, tonight, I went to a gay bar. And it was awesome.
The music was epic, all the staff was really friendly, and I met a man named Ewan "Diesel", who turned out to be a DJ for the BBC with 250,000 regular listeners (along with his partner). This guy has interviewed (among others) Christian Slater and the entire cast of Coronation Street. I spent the entire evening sitting with these gentlemen, chatting and drinking, which was an absolute pleasure.
Then Mr. Creepy arrived. First he offered to buy me a drink, then he started asking me how old I was and such, before finally jumping right on in and asking if my parents know where I am and if I need to go home tonight.
Thankfully, Diesel and his partner, Nathan, both helped me out. They sat between me and Mr. Creepy so he couldn't keep pestering me, and said that if he tried to follow me out they would stop him.
Managed to escape when Mr. Creepy left to use the bathroom, and here I am, writing this.
Any thoughts, similar experiences?

Never been to a gay bar (I'm only17) but I hear that the music is usually good and the people usually friendly.

Firstly, I'm also only 17. :D

Secondly, I'm not a fan of night clubs myself. This wasn't a "thumping techno and throngs of sweaty men" gaybar.
This was a nice bar with Pet Shop Boys and Abba playing in the background while all us gays hang and drink. There's also a dance floor with leather beds and a DJ booth, but that's in the back and only for Friday/Saturday late nights.

Indeed, I'm not really the party kind, I prefer the quiet, a nice place to talk and hang about etc. not upbeat thumping music.

If I was to dance it would be the sort of slow elegant calm ballroom type over the mess you see people doing at clubs, I suppose that is a way to explain the type of places I would enjoy.

I hate those types of places, homosexual or otherwise.

I know the Pet Shop Boys. This sounds like a place I could enjoy being at.

So do I, heh heh. I really had to man the fuck up to go in, I was nearly shaking on the way in. So nervous.

I sadly don't have any gay friends (well, actually, I do now :D) which is why I went on my own. However, I heartily reccomend going with other people as back-up if someone creeps on you. If you have nobody to go with, try to at least make some friends and latch on to a group (without intruding or being a third wheel) so, once again, you have back-up. Luckily for me, the people I met were so friendly. They were very fun. I mentioned I quite liked the music and the guy immediately took me to the jukebox and bought me a stack of songs.

All in all, the experience has given me the confidence to come out. I'm coming out to my mum on Friday.
Then I'll hopefully spend a little more time at that particular venue. :3

I would love to make some gay friends like that, sadly since I don't have anyone to go with atm it would be going alone, so yea, Mr Freaky could jump on me, especially since the whole cute factor thing makes me quite the target.

I would feel really uncomfortable with a freaky guy hitting on me, or anyone really as I like friendships which go into relationship and not just "sup your hot lets shag"

I totally see what you mean, but I was less worried about him being odd and wanting to fuck, and much more worried about the possibility that he would attempt to get me drunk, drug me, rape me, or worse. Always one twat who has to spoil it. Heh.

Also, to the gentlemen mentioning the lack of gay friends in Vancouver; it's ok. These are literally my first ever real gay friends, you're really not alone in that, hah.

Indeed that would be a more scary thought, I am comfortable so far in pubs when I am with other people, like in NG meetups I'm fine even leaving my drink around with them as the people are good, but aloner I would fear stuff like that, especially since I would likely be considered a type of mark for such things.

Being with others basically just makes it so much better and worth doing, it is the classic catch 22 though, you need to meet people to go out with them and enjoy places where you would meet them.

Also, to the gentlemen mentioning the lack of gay friends in Vancouver; it's ok. These are literally my first ever real gay friends, you're really not alone in that, hah.

Luckily I have gay NG friends who are sort of close, in the way of same country anyway, but yea I know fuck all nearby.
