Oops, busted guys!
Today a group of my co-workers and I were talking about issues regarding transgender people because of the ban towards them no longer being allowed to serve in the military. Most of the all straight male attitudes were positive which is still unbelievable to me, but things are getting better. The focus changed to shared washrooms and wondering if there will be shared change rooms for everyone. Then the topic shifted, because one guy said a woman seeing them change is the same as when they showered with gay guys at the gym or back in their university days. Then it turned a little funny for me because the guys ranted a bit. Turns out all those tricks we do like taking longer in the shower, quick glances, positioning ourselves near mirrors etc, all to check out the goods, they are totally on to us! One man even said "come on guys, we know what you are doing". It was funny to hear the comments, they weren't angry, just really annoyed. This is why I don't tell anyone at work that I am gay. I am like Jane Goodall, gay man secretly sitting amongst the apes, or as we gays say "straight guys". I like that unfiltered opinion, I know it would change if I told them, I don't want them to feel they have to be edited with me. The thing I like the most is, their unfiltered opinion on LGBT issues, really makes me respect these guys. Now call a general gay meeting because our shower strategy needs updating, we have been totally made, the jig is up!
