Mark James has has written a piece in Gay.com in support of the way George Michael chooses to live his life, and suggests that it’s time the community stands shoulder to shoulder with him.
As a staight male, I must say I’ve been quite surprised by the number of gay men that have been quick to express their disapproval of George’s alleged behaviour in recent days. To be honest, I have difficulty believing the disapproval is real. Why? Because I agree with George that almost all men, gay and straight, can well understand the attraction of “no-strings”, anonymous sex.
Of course, many women are attracted by this idea too. However, the reason that straight men don’t indulge in straight cruising, is because they don’t have the opportunity to – not enough women are interested.
I promise you, if the bushes on Hampstead Heath were full of straight women wanting anonymous sex at two o’clock in the morning, you wouldn’t be able to move for straight men!
