Leave Me Alone

Politicians that is, not my readers. South Carolina and Alabama are both trying to pass a law that will make it illegal to get porn on and electronic device: computers, cellphones, etc. For a one time fee, you apply to get access back on your device, but you have to ask. I’m sorry but I love a little porn on my electronic devices every now and then and I’d be way too shy to ask for the filter to be removed. Porn to me is a private thing. It’s where you can live out your fantasies through other people.

I’d also like these same politicians to stay out of my bathroom. I don’t care if a transgender individual who is passing as their intended gender uses the same bathroom that I do. At the university where I work, we have a number of FTM transgender, not all have had all the surgeries and thus still have the biological functions of a woman. The reason I say this is because the other day I saw a tampon disposed of in the men’s restroom. It did not bother me the least that I may have been sharing a restroom with someone who was born biologically female. And just for the record, many of these FTM transgendered persons are quite attractive and it would be hard to tell that they were not cisgendered men.

So my advice to politicians is this: leave me the fuck alone. I won’t try to regulate your life and you don’t try to regulate mine.

About Joe

I began my life in the South and for five years lived as a closeted teacher, but am now making a new life for myself as an oral historian in New England. I think my life will work out the way it was always meant to be. That doesn't mean there won't be ups and downs; that's all part of life. It means I just have to be patient. I feel like October 7, 2015 is my new birthday. It's a beginning filled with great hope. It's a second chance to live my life…not anyone else's. My profile picture is "David and Me," 2001 painting by artist Steve Walker. It happens to be one of my favorite modern gay art pieces. View all posts by Joe
