....................I was ***NOT*** Expecting THAT ?!?!?!?!?!?................

...................well .................. that will teach me for trying to bring some community analysis to the blog.

My post on physical diversity in our community .................. sent someone into a repressive crying session.

Oh dear..............

Let me just say this - my post was NEVER meant to offend or hurt anyone. As someone living with Clinical Depression I would never intentionally do this.

However, this person's admission - and you are a very brave person for telling me btw - confirms that we truly can be a horrid lot.

Seriously - the emails of people telling their horror stories thanks to their GLBT cousins are simply horrendous.

Yes- people can be arseholes.... no argument there. But the premise of the post was a question about our community at large (not necessarily venues).

Even still, I am completely stunned......... some of these people are those I would say were several cuts above the standard in terms of physical beauty. So what sort of conclusion can we draw from this?

Simple - people at venues are cunts................. sorry Ladies for the use of the C word.

But did we not know this? Are we therefore saying that those at venues are a representative sample of our community?

Personally - I don't think so.... but it does go a long way to understanding our community advertising.

If we thusly target those "types" that go to venues on a regular basis, then our own advertisers are saying that it's the cunts that they want to attract.

Hmmmm........................ there is a logic hole there.

People who spend their recreational time on booze and drugs don't necessarily have a lot of spare cash to spend. Geeks, fatties, the ethnically diverse, and, nesting couples really have the purchase power in our community............... so again, why are they only targeting people with pecs and a nice pair of buns?

Simple............................ again................. people are shallow cunts.

My post was a promise to you ............... my readers who come to my blog............. that I would strive to be less vaccuous than the so-called average gay man.

Has this made any sense?

Hopefully it has.

Again, to the person whose experiences prompted the reaction of tears and dread.......... I truly hope you accept my apology .............. as unintentional as it was.

Shalom all.
