My, my. Very few things surprise me. And recently this one did: the concept of a g0y. Simply put, a “g0y” (yes, spelled with a zero, not the letter “o”) is a guy who is into other guys, but refuses to be classified as gay. Hmmm… I want to suspend judgement, for now. But let me share this piece of information I found about this topic.
From g0ys.org: G0ys are guys who find men physically & emotionally attractive, but (for whatever reason) are offended with the stigmas that currently define the ‘gay community’ in the public psyche. G0YS recognize that the “gay-male” community tends to embrace every gender-bending act, fetish & affectation; –And include those things in the general specter of the image that “gay” projects publicly. The easiest to observe example is the commonly used acronym “GLIT” (sometimes “GLIB”) meaning Gay, Lesbian, Intersexed, Transgendered (or BiSexual). The fact that “GAY” is grouped with “Intersexed & Transgendered” is evidence to our primary point showing what the term “GAY” has morphed into. G0YS reject those associations completely & consider it a form of prejudice against men who love men.
Behaviorally: Anal-sex is innately shunned by g0ys - as it represents the ultimate form of sexual disrespect whether male/male or male/female. Other distasteful stereotypes include (but are not limited to): Effeminate behavior, extreme passivity (like cowardice) & drag. G0YS don’t call other men “girl”, “bitch”, “queen”, etc.
Whew. I need to recover before I actually write more. For now, let me digest this, and I’ll get back to you. Or maybe share your thoughts here. Are there Pinoy G0ys out there?
