One last thought to catch you up

Last night, I was on my way to the ATM, and, in the distance, I saw the silouhette (I don't care enough to look up correct spelling) of a man standing on his porch, smoking a cigarette. For the first time in a while, I was struck by just how generally beautiful men are. Just a shadow of a man, unable to make out distinct features, and I was struck speechless. I'm so glad I'm gay, as I don't think women have this power. Women, through the position society has put them in, are more overtly beautiful, like they have to make a conscious decision to connect with their beauty. This man was beautiful in his ignorance of his grace.

I've probably overdramatized this. The man is probably a mega-egotist who spends hours primping. And I, along with legions of other men, gay or otherwise, have chosen to approach beauty in the same way I have described. It was just an amazing moment where I caught a glimpse of life at it's most beautiful, that I have probably now cheapened with my analysis.

Unfortunately, many women (and men) I know say that men are ugly, gross creatures, and that women are by far more beautiful.

I could not disagree enough. While there are certainly unattractive men, as there are women, I find the male form and flow(when done right) to be breathtaking. One of the most beautiful things I've seen in my life was a young man, naked, standing in his filthy room reaching for an alarm clock as the morning sunlight shone through the curtains, highlighting the curves of his muscles and smoothness of his skin. His stance, his messed up hair, the way he stood there not having a clue that the sight of him like that would be forever burned into my mind...was amazing.
Another is simply the curve of a man's browbone, the way he gestures when he speaks, the way his body postures when he stops and thinks, ignoring the rest of the world around him.
aahh... men.

You understand! Thank you! I was worried that people were going to write it off as a weird "way too late/early" post, when it isn't that at all.
