One would thing that they’d be dealing with bloggers that speak out on issues from their point of view, gay men that you could look to for that important element needed for our movement in the community.

 However, that is very difficult to come by.

And though their blogs seem to reach millions of people, day by day, when are we going to admit that these are not authentic pieces of work being gifted to the world?

    I think perhaps that we have to deal with so much shit in real lives every day that sometimes we look upon social media as an escape from reality. Naked hugs!

    This reminds me of a frequent exchange between my best friend an me.
    Him: You’re too hard on people.
    Me: I don’t think people are hard enough on themselves!
    I agree with both you and Renzo.
    However, I think what you’re asking after is important. Especially because even if there were gay blogs with more driven, thoughtful and challenging content…would people follow them?
    I think “we” are so permissive with our escape that it’s created a near crippling selfishness. My social feeds are cluttered with “look at me” posts and “why can’t I find a boyfriend” posts. But not a lot of posts where people challenge themselves to actually be better and contribute to our wasting gay culture.
    Because for too long, it’s been better to look good than to actually be good.
    And now there’s filters to help perpetuate that mindset…
