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.

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.
