Dear Sambag: Straight People Watching
Am I the only one who does this? I know this sounds weird. Like I go to shopping centers and sit down at a bench and listen to music on my phone and just watch people.
Most usually straight families with their kids sitting at restaurants, and dads pushing strollers and his wife laying her head on his arms, or just watching couples showing pda and men grabbing their girlfriend from behind their backs and slinging her around.
Being gay, knowing that none of this is sadly going to happen to me, it’s at least nice to watch other people have fun with their lives and be happy.
I like people watching, too. But in a different way you do it. I don’t think I will never have that. It’s just a matter of reaching out and taking it.
Don’t be so pessimistic. Why don’t you think this will ever happen to you? Gay people can have a family too. You can if you want to. There’s no ban on gay people starting families. Even if we had all the rights and protections we still don’t have, there’s still more work to be done to get a child than the average straight couple. But it’s not impossible.
But I’ll stop there and let our readers weigh in. Please share your advice in the Comments below.
