I was in a private party last Saturday, and while there was a liquor ban due to the elections the following Monday, beer and all sorts of alcoholic drinks were free for all in that party. There were singing and dancing, but all clean and wholesome fun. I was enjoying it with friends, until this guy who I met only once previously started going around telling everyone he was my close friend. At first I didn’t mind it. Until he started doing really strange stuff. He introduced me to his “buddy” then later told me they just had sex while the party was at full blast (later I learned it was all fluff). Then out of the blue he wanted me to accompany him in the comfort room (which I so politely declined). Then while I was in the john, he barged in and, as if jokingly, put himself between the urinal and my thing. I was really and literally pissed. Even with all that, I tried to be nice to him, thinking it might just be the alcohol. But it was not just the alcohol.
We, along with others from the party, went to Starbucks afterwards, sort of to sober up. While we were conversing, in public, he just grabbed my crotch! That was when I really realized the guy was something else. Later on I found out how he was able to befriend my other friends in the party just by dropping my name, saying he was my close friend. Poser!!! It was the first time I met a guy that weird. A gay guy — he gives us gay guys a bad name, I thought.
But then, I challenged myself: “Migs, ‘World Peace’ nga di ba?”
World Peace. Yes, World Peace. But does that mean I should just sit there and watch this guy do seriously crazy (and possibly harmful) antics? No way. World Peace can mean waging a war if that’s what it takes. Of course I wouldn’t wage a war with this guy, but I can definitely disagree with his behavior, even prevent things he was trying to do (like grabbing my crotch). If he can do it to me, he can do it to anyone else, and therefore he needs someone to tell him to stop. And I did. He left earlier than everyone else, but not without me telling him I didn’t agree with his behavior.
So to you MGG readers, purveyors of peace, I hope that we be more proactive in promoting World Peace. Even if it means waging some kind of war. Siyempre ang drama ko, but do give me some slack. No one likes being harassed.
