    The concluding paragraph!

    You know, that’s when you realise that these stereotypes are beyond stupid! All these heteronormative precepts being brought into our world as homosexuals is quite disturbing. I mean, even straight women are battling against this patriarchal system and gay men are imbibing it? It’s saddening.

    If those who play Top are expected to be masculine and those who play Bottom are expected to be feminine; then versatiles should be…hermaphrodites??? Hmmph!

    Personally I think they all need to dial it down because tops also do this same things. A top would say something like “can you tone it down a little, you know you’re a man all that jazz” so if a bottom does the same it’s considered putting them in a box?
    Anyway what’s my own, I like what I like and if you don’t fit into that i move on to the next, that’s life.

    This is one of the issues with making a sexual preference an identity.
    In my view… there’s nothing like “a bottom” or “a top”, there are those who prefer to bottom, those who prefer to top, those who prefer both and those who don’t want penetration.

    Considering I hardly have anything to do with ppl who have ‘bottom’ on their cyber profiles, I ALWAYS find it shocking and relieving when the ones I do chat with can manage to actually string words in intelligent conversation. I guess it’s not hard to see where the stereotypes come from.
    I myself have been told a couple times that I give Top vibes. I know my face is strong and unsmiling, if that is even a criteria, but I don’t play with pehnis oooo.
