Feminine. Queen. Girl. What is it about these words that makes some of us tense up when we hear them? Why are they considered insults in some circles of the gay community? These questions have been rolling through my mind ever since The “Real Man” Project ended. Especially in regards to the handful of ignorant, negative responses to Chris Crocker‘s submission.
Are we so insecure in our masculinity that we can’t shrug our shoulders and simply accept our feminine tendencies? It doesn’t matter if you’re the hairiest, burliest, most testosterone-infused, well-hung lumberjack who’s never had a single gay thought in his entire life! Something that you do, think or say could be considered “feminine” by societally-established standards. Guaranteed.
Also, isn’t it a bit sexist to attach such negative connotations to these words? Doesn’t it imply that being female is inferior to being male? This notion that masculinity is somehow a virtue brings us to a high school level of foolishness. Even when comments of this nature are made in a light-hearted manner, there’s still an air of maliciousness to the tone. The idea is that being “feminine” or a “queen” is an inherently bad thing for a man who likes to suck dick… But why?
The next time someone calls me a queen, you know what I’m going to do? ‘Cause I’ll tell you what I’m gonna do! I’m going to turn my nose up and say “thank you”. They’ll be failing to recognize that I’m fucking royalty, while they’re a mere peasant groveling for bread crumbs in the streets. Sucks for them.

This poorly-written rant was brought to you by You Love Jack model Ethan Rose. When I first laid my eyes on this pixie-like blond twink, I couldn’t help but notice that he has a bit of a feminine edge. I also couldn’t help but notice how much I wanted to WRECK his smooth young hole. And I feel no need to apologize for that desire.
