I am told by friends that not only was Elaine confused by the young gay couple in the pub on Friday night but that later that evening a positive flock, if that’s the appropriate word, descended on the late night watering hole of the town. I have nothing against those women that enjoy the company of women over men, hell in some instances its a positive service to mankind after all, but I have noticed a trend among younger ‘converts’. Friday night was a good example, we have a young couple, one of which has moved from opposite to same sex relationships which I am sure was a big moment in her life but you know what? It’s not that big a deal for the rest of us. In my quiet local pub this couple did not make a significant impact by holding hands so they moved up to wrestling, embracing and all out tonsil battles, none of which garnered any more attention.
The thing that confirms my theory is that the couple were later ejected from another pub because one of them was trying to pick a fight with some local lads. It seems to me that, like young children, they want to shock, they need to see that look of disdain around them because it marks the momentous choice in their life. Here the theory branches somewhat as I am not sure of why they actually need the attention, is it because they want to be able to berate the ills of society for not accepting them? Do they want to confirm that they are special and different? Or are they just baiting men with the ‘look but don’t touch’? I would like to publicly declare that there isn’t a man on earth that has not, in some studious capacity, observed two women together and to be fair the educational material normally provides a more aesthetically appealing demonstration, were not bothered ladies crack on.
Friday’s later exploits bring some very interesting observations that I feel are worthy of publishing. The first is that when you bring several all girl couples to this sleepy Essex backwater and add alcohol, they don’t turn upon each other they direct their anger at the guys, is this a macho thing?or do they implicitly trust other gay women? The second observation is one for the guys to keep in mind when their partners are bemoaning their discomfort around homosexual men, after all every girl loves a gay guy and they can never understand If a guy finds that uncomfortable, well the straight girls weren’t dancing and were ganging up to go to the toilet, turns out its only non threatening when its the other team.
