"now, i am starting to believe that location has indeed a major effect among gay people."
"why did you say so?"
"believe me, gay people in makati are vicious (mabangis, being the exact word used) compare to the gay people elsewhere.""blame it to the metropolitan life."
"probably, kuya jo told me yesterday that when he went to makati to fetch for something. while he was waiting for the person who will deliver his stuff, a gay guy across the other table of the fast food chain, just literally stared at him from head to foot and would not just let go. in a way, he felt harrassed especially when the guy give him a nod and gave a gesture pointing to somewhere."
" what did kuya jo do?"
"he gave him the finger."
"well, i think that was rude."
"staring at someone to begin with is already rude. obviously, i have nothing against gay people. but the problem of some of us is that they just don't know how to respect other people's boundaries."
"i am with you. respect begets respect. there is a thin line between being liberal and being disrespectful."
"exactly. not because he dresses as such, moves as such and even thinks as such, he or she is already one. so they should stop assuming that everyone is like them and more importantly, every gay guy is always into sex. i dunno, probably, i am just tired of all these. i think that some gay people should begin growing up for not everything in life is all about it. you know what? i am even starting to believe that probably the reason why most people still don't accept homosexuality is because of these people themselves. as you have said yourself, respect begets respect and its just frustrating to know that while some people are advocating for gender yadidi-yadada, there are some who drags the entire thing down. what aggravates it more is the irony that it is so hard to push something up but it is so easy to drag it down and don't tell me its gravity, you, smart ass!"
"well, gay people are still people. and like any other people, they are also sexual beings and even commit the same mistake. probably, the first thing that we need to recognize is we have to stop thinking that sexual assaults are only isolated to gay people. from there, i believe that homophobia and discrimination will be eradicated or atleast minimize"
"i must agree. but the thing is almost everyone in the gay community is perfectly aware of the discrimination that faces them everyday. but if there are still some gay people who keeps on staining the better impression and image that everybody is building, basically, everything will just be put into waste."
"hey! here goes my bus. until tomorrow aron!""later, ewik."
*just a typical day, whenever ewik and aron meet under the same waiting shed in ayala.
