OUT OF THE CLOSET AND INTO THE BLOG……….chapter 3 “appearances”

“APPEARANCE”……………..DOES IT MATTER HOW YOU LOOK?

I’ve addressed (no pun intended!) this topic before and I’m sure everyone understands how we appear to other people matters in all situations: people judge us first on how we look to them…………then how we speak……….then how we act………..then how we  follow-up on promises, etc. So, how we look is a BIG part of success or failure in our relationships!

An article in the local paper today states that  “Gay characters  are at record high levels on network TV” !!!! Previously I’ve mentioned how “bothered” I am by the stereotypical characters that are presently part of this 4.4% of gay characters that are on TV this year and next. This segment of the gay society is being presented as WHAT ALL GAY PEOPLE LOOK LIKE AND ACT.

IT JUST AIN’T SO!  ONE OF THE MOST RESPECTED AND GOOD LOOKING MALE PERSONALITIES  ON TV IS ANDERSON COOPER! Now here is a guy with whom I can relate. Smart and respectable………..career oriented……..good person all around! Not to say that the gay people on TV don’t have all of those qualities……….mayby they do but appearances may turn some people off before they have the time to find out!

O.K. I REST MY CASE……………ALL OF YOU YOUNG PEOPLE OUT THERE THAT DON’T RELATE TO THE TYPE OF GAY PEOPLE YOU SEE ON TV OR IN THE COMMUNITY, OR IN BOOKS, MOVIES, ON THE STREET…………THERE IS ANOTHER ROLE MODEL OUT THERE THAT JUST MIGHT HAVE THE “COAT’ THAT YOU WILL BE COMFORTABLE  IN WHILE WEARING IT!
