In class these past two days (grad school division) we have been gnawing over ideas and feelings about "How do I feel about myself as a gay man" (a tad difficult for the one str8 guy in our work group. Btw, he is there by choice; not assigned. ;-) ) when I read articles such as this one, and others like it? Are my feelings influenced by these reports? What does/might it do for the gay group in general, and, perhaps me, individually? How much might I be affected by media commentaries? In my socializing do such polls, opinions perhaps make me feel freer, more or less comfortable? And similar.
I invite you to add your own ideas, thoughts, feelings about these.
