I will say this again for those who weren’t paying attention the first time I said it– I have nothing against gay chaps – you want to traumatise your behind, knock yourself out, it’s your body! What I do hate however, is when they almost choke you into understanding their behaviour.
This one disaster of a man literally took the time to tell me about his trips to places I only see on Google maps courtesy of his lover. The outcome of the conversation would have been a lot more civil had he not tried to give me details of their “after dark activities”! After explaining to the drag queen just how much space he was wasting on this earth, I got up and left before he could start a speech on how great it is to be gay.
There is an annoying breed of people in town who forcefully impose their beliefs and ideologies on others – whether you want them to or not. It turns out one of my colleagues is one of them. He is a vegetarian and health freak by choice; something to do with the pursuit of a higher self but nothing medical.
He is the kind of person who will calculate the calories he takes in a cup of coffee. My problem is not that he chooses to stay away from the good stuff; my problem is that he is always trying to recruit people into his not-so-cool camp!
I cannot have a conversation with this chap without him criticising my lifestyle and how I’m dying slowly. What is he, my dad? Every time he finds me eating meat, the look on his face says, you are dying but unfortunately, I feel nothing because the last time I checked, isn’t that what we are all going to do eventually? What’s the point in dying when all I ate was grass and water, especially when I’m not sure if there is brochette in the afterlife? See what I mean?
This new breed is convinced that their beliefs are never wrong and are always pushing them into people’s faces, if not down their throats. Like atheists who criticise religion every chance they get, or Christians who spend more time spreading the word than actually following it!
Rogue feminists fall into this category too; every conversation you have with them is powerfully against men. I have a sneaky suspicion that they would throw a serious carnival if men vanished off the face of the earth.
Believe in what you want or do what you want, just don’t compel me to understand. I won’t. I refuse to!
