    “What is the probability that when I get married, I’ll fill in the gaps of abundant procreation that you and your father left, eh?”….. Seriously, your case might even be worse (as in…. no child at all). lolz

    No gay man has it tougher than the one who’s an only child or only son with parents who have grandchildren expectations.
    Seems to me you’re jejely gearing yourself up for a fight, Michael. Whatever decision you make about your future, I do hope it’s one you’d learn to be happy with for the rest of your life.

    This is some depressingly sad story. The trials your parents had to face. Thought they’d av grown thicker skins to societal demands by now. On the flip side, I see a drive to want to make ‘successes’ according to societal demands too

    “I’m going to make sure that whatever decision I take will be a PERSONAL one”.

    That’s all.

    Wow … Dear Michael, i can only wish you strength and resilience, you need lots of it for the horrors and battles ahead … Do you, but dont be averse to sacrifices and compromises; within reason of course …

    This entry just made my day. I can only hope you continue to have such thoughts. Do not be phased by the ways of society and do that which you want.

    You mustn’t get married but you could have children (if you like them and just to be sure you aren’t impotent…lol).
    That being said, I love your mind. You are my kind of gay man.

    “I will do whatever will keep my sanity and mind intact. I am not going to be pressured into hasty decisions. I’m going to make sure that whatever decision I take will be a personal one.”

    This part.

    Honestly, i feel people who are to quick to criticize MGM should try and walking in their shoes sometimes. People have different backgrounds, stories and challenges. Mine is quite similar to this and the quote above is going to be my new mantra.

    my dear, you can still be gay and grant your parents desired of an abundance of grandchildren. How? You come out to them as gay(I don’t know what their reaction could be, but that is discussion for another day). Then you marry your partner and employ a surrogate. yes you heard me right, a surrogate. This surrogate won’t be the conventional surrogate you know about. This time you employ the services of a woman whom would be fertilised with your sperm. The process of fertilisation will involve you jerking off and the sperm injected into the womb of the employed surrogate or through a test tube fertilisation that is then planted into the womb of the surrogate. my dear, you can have children of your dreams without marrying a woman or sleeping with man. science has defied nature.

      i thought by now everyone is aware of this, but the conventional African parent would fight against him being gay not to talk of this surrogate thing.

      What’s with the whole “my dear” thing you’re doing? Even if you’re both friends, please. Keep it for private conversations. Ugh

      BTW, nothing you just said was new.

        I don’t think how he chooses to address Michael is any of your business. If you don’t like being overly affectionate in public, do not make that any other person’s business.

    Michael, I can relate with this, and I live in constant fear of how this can tear my family apart when it comes to their notice, and when I think of all my mum has gone through, I feel she doesn’t deserve the heartache I would cause her in the long run, OAN, I’ve been more inclined to self gratification with my decisions, but then I’m torn between many walls.
