"Living the Good Lie" by Mimi Swartz - NYTimes.com

This gay psychiatrist in Texas advocates men in the closet to stay there. Same psychiatrist was once voted "Mr. Prime Choice Texas" for exemplifying the very best of the "leather/Levi/uniform/fetish community." Sounds like a fun crowd.

I don't know what this dude is thinking. I say, if you're into dong, sing it from the fucking mountaintops. Let 'em know. It's your life, brah. And you only go around once.

Also, everybody knows already anyway. People got eyes, closeted gay dudes. They got eyes and they know how to use 'em.

  1. Yeah, what is up with that?

    Only I think the depiction was too simple. If a person's religious identity is greater than his/her sexual orientation identity, then denying a person what feels like his or her core will not help. There is empirically-supported evidence that a religious affiliation can be very good for mental health. Maybe trying to force somone out of community that feels right into a community that will feel foreign is not always the best answer. Wouldn't be great if everyone into dong could sing it from the mountain tops and not feel that they killed themselves inside in doing so?

    I sure sing it from the mountain tops, but I am just some gay psychotherapist in Texas once voted "Mr. Prime Choice Texas."
