Recently I've seen a few videos on gay liberals and other leftists complaining about how straight people refer to homosexuality as a "lifestyle". This is from your typical clickbait, tabloid websites like Buzzfeed and Huffington Post.
They complain because homosexuality has been normalized by the left, and they now have to fit themselves into this narrative.
I disagree - being gay used to be quite a lifestyle. As Milo Yiannopoulos recently stated at one of his talks "Nowadays your typical gay is the hand-wringing, nasally pitched crybaby. Being gay didn't mean you just fucked other men, it was a lifestyle where you'd have a weekend of ketamine and alcohol fueled delirium."
This really struck home with me. If being gay means you're the same as a straight guy except into dudes, then there isn't really a point in being gay.
Homosexuality used to be a fringe lifestyle, and since it has been normalized by the left, it lost it's flamboyant flair. When going out in search of a one-night-stand or a relationship, I look to go against the narrative now.
I feel this is why we have a rise in conservatism amongst gays - almost as this is us homos doing what we should as rebelling against a narrative or what is expected from society.
What are your guys thoughts on this?
