So I was going through my morning Tweets today, and I came across this from my friend Justin:
“Gay men are like tupperware, you can find all the bottoms, but you can’t find the tops”
Why is this so true? I think like with most of the society, we always assume that most gay guys are all bottoms. I mean, it’s funny sometimes, when I’m out in a heavily populated gay area, I like to play a game with myself. I like to call it “Top or Bottom?” and it’s pretty simple: whoever walks by you you either guess if he’s a top or bottom.
It’s pretty easy actually, there’s no real winner, but just like Justin says, I can point out all the bottoms but not the tops. Every now and then I run into various other groups and someone that I believe to be a top is actually a bottom! But I didn’t hear it from their own mouth, its always through the gay grapevine. However, sometimes its so blatantly obvious, like, “GIRL, THE WORD ‘TOP’ IS NOT EVEN IN YOUR VOCABULARY…” but I know I shouldn’t assume, I wouldn’t want someone to do that to me.
I always try not to think about a person’s ‘role’ in the bedroom, but sometimes when I’m bored (and when my phone is out of batteries) I just wonder what role someone would play if we were to ever… roll around in the hay. I never like to be labeled anything, but for me, it all depends on the person. Yes I come off as one more than the other, but it’s really no one’s business but my own as to what role I am when I want to get down to business.
Unless I go into porn, because then everyone would know my secret sexual knee-buckling eye-rolling move that would render a rhinoceros unconscious.
But it sucks we live in a society where we are automatically pigeon-holed into a role based off of our appearance. What do you guys think? Should someone have a certain role right off the bat? Or should it be explored?
To me, I like being surprised, like those snakes in a can of peanut brittle.
Emphasis on snake.
Snake being a man’s penis.
