But not in the fearful of being rejected way...

I am bothered by the expression I hear more and more often:

"I Love You! (But not in a gay way.)"

Why clarify?

The difference between platonic and partner love is terribly obvious to those giving and receiving it.

And I don't require which form of love I'm receiving to be clarified in any personal relationships, publicly or not. I already KNOW which. Plus, I'm proud of being loved by everyone who loves me.

If you're afraid of being seen as gay, don't mix it with your expressions of love -- fear and love don't mix. I don't think there is anything bothersome about seeing a display of love on a public forum or in a note. There is nothing there, regardless of what KIND of love is being talked about, that could even remotely bother me.

It's hate that sucks rocks.

I love those whom I love. LOVE!



  1. Kat Says:

    I love you in a gay way.

  2. desi Says:

    hee hee. Yay! Kat gets it. HUGS, kisses and lots of unspecified love.

  3. Shelley Says:

    Just in case your not sure: I love you. Period. Work it out for yourself!

  4. LOL... my niece will be with her girlfriends and say, "I love you guys, Not Gay." She's only 13 so I guess it's ok to feel the need to clarify at that formative age.
