As a gay man: 1) there's the basic question of what this board is for, or welcomes, the mundane, often the usual, or the unexpected, unusual? The physical which went 'sideways' and how so? Or the details of an occupational or draft physical, completely accurate? 2) there's the question, then, of whether certain posts would or could be covered in private, real life, conversations, or only here, anonymously? 3) is there the question that gay men, more than straight men, more than gay or straight women, might ask why? Why did the doctor...? What was that about? What was he or she thinking? Think of why were weigh-ins really naked, not the simple, to cut weight, but any agenda there questioning? 4) gay healthcare is a newer field which gay medical doctors and gay patients are defining, so haven't gay men been pushed into the conversation? 5) there's the question of whether or not gay sex, by stretching the definitions, and, if true, a willingness to explore in actions, more than straight men and women, or a little more than gay women, has plunged into topics covered here more? 6) there's the question of whether or not gay men, more than straight men, women and gay women, are focused on their bodies, in clothes, out of clothes, how their bodies look and function, for which examinations are an everyday action, by themselves, as well as by others? 7) there's the question of writing, putting finger to keyboard, whether gay men naturally do it more than others, since that's a step past reading. But then, I'm a writer.
