It's obvious right? We gays are different. I've already realized this before but this has slapped me hard recently when I finally dated my "hubby". I just realized that gay relationships are really different and we don't get to enjoy some of the things straight couples enjoy.
Here are some of the things that I wish me and my hubby can enjoy:
- Holding hands in public.
- Being able to date on Valentine's day without people looking at us.
- Getting the parents know the partner.
- Visiting at each other's house.
- Being included in family plans.
- People not staring at us when we get carried away with our "candy" moments.
- People not whispering behind our backs.
I can't help but feel jealous whenever I see straight couples do the things above. Are the above activities privileges reserved for heterosexual couples? Are these even privileges in the first place?
Sometimes, I can't help but think how life can really be unfair. I guess life never really is unfair. We're only asking for a little acceptance. Why not just care about your own affairs and let us enjoy the relationship that we have? It would save us both a lot of effort.
Queer update: I really hope that the relationship I and my hubby have will last. :)
