labels, labels

had fun watching the stand-up comics at a comedy bar a few nights ago. funny the hosts, in full female regalia, were discussing the on-line labels PLU's have been using especially in G4M:

bi
straight-acting
discreet
curious
tripper

i found it so hilarious that our online personas have such various characterizations and that these may be so far-removed from reality. i mean really.. some people are just clueless about what these terms mean:

bi - dito eh kailangan ng pruweba na pumapatol (present tense) sa parehong kasarian
pag straight-acting : parang awa niyo na... hindi kasama dito ang kasing lamya ni ate gay
discreet - di ka discreet kung naka funda ka or mas mataray pa ang sashay mo kay lola naomi campbell
curious - ang curious, kailangan i-persuade, ligawan bago bumigay. hindi tumatambay ng g4m para masatisfy ang curiousity
tripper - kapatid, umamin ka na. kung trip mo yun. eh ganun ka nga, no! by definishun

yun lang.

one time a friend of mine announces that he is a "bi-curious", so aside from pumapatol siya sa parehong kasarian, eh ano pa ba? malamang pati mga halaman.

I was listening to this gay podcast and he was also debating about the same thing. It would so much easier if we can just divide it to two categories and that's it, Masculine and Effeminate, it would definitely work for me....I mean one doesn't need to describe his whole life with one label now does he. :P

hey tony! actually, i personally dont mind the multitude of labels... its the big gap between self-perception and reality that gets to me. who actually admits to being effeminate? hahaha

yajnat - ang versatile bottom ba eh yung kahit ano eh pwedeng ipasok? :)

Tony said...

I admit to being effeminate, at least the times when with I am with my friends and do my hop and skip thing when I am excited. :P

you're an exception, tony. and to think your displays of effeminacy are really within the confines of chika. ang iba kasi eh straight acting daw kaso even outside eh mas girl pa kay fanny serrano...
