In a piece called, “Gay Panic Attack”, Dan Savage offers advice to a 21 years old straight male who “arranged a date with a trans sex worker.” This poor child says, “I became the receiving partner during anal sex…the next day, I started to feel REALLY bad.” And he actually says to Savage, “I just can’t get past the fact that I did the gayest thing a guy can do.”
OK…once I got done laughing, I read Savage’s response:
“Yes, yes: You did the gayest thing a guy can do—you allowed someone to put a dick in your manbutt—but now you’re doing the second-gayest thing a guy can do. You’re being a huge drama queen about the whole thing.”
LMAO I love Dan Savage. In a completely manly, non-gay way of course. 🙂
For most of us, eighth grade is a stew of awkward memories: pimples, doodles, and straight-armed slow dances. But for students 100 years ago, it was probably their last year at school. Thanks to mandatory schooling laws established a decade earlier, kids in Kentucky could stop attending class at 14 years old. Of the 72 percent of children who attended primary school in America, fewer than 20 percent continued on to high school. So travel back to 1912 and pretend this is your exit exam to the real world.
OMG If this was the criteria then no – I am SO not smarter than a 1912 Eight Grader!
