I have this group of gay friends — they are a special bunch. Like fishes in a terrarium. Nothing in the way they move, speak, or dress up would suggest they are gays. They are what some people call the truly straight-acting, “walang bahid ng kabadingan.” In one of our usual weekend drinking sessions, it just happened that I was seated beside Gus. What an interesting conversation it was.
Gus is married, with 2 kids. I joked about his being so lucky that his 2 kids are both girls — “at least hindi ka kakabahang may magmana sa iyo!” To which he gamely responds with “oo nga no!” followed by a hearty laugh.
I asked, “alam ba ng misis mo?”
“Di ah!!!” but then he related one instance. “Minsan nag-away kami ni misis. May nakita siyang MMS sa phone ko. Tinanong niya ako, ‘bakla ka ba?’ Siyempre nag-deny ako. Iyak siya ng iyak. Nag-sex kami nun, para lang masabi niyang di ako bakla.”
I was so amused with his stories that it was like a TV interview. I kept asking questions, and he gamely answered them, sometimes in juicy and gory details.
“Noong una akala ko kapag nag-asawa na ako, mapipigilan ko na ito,” referring to his sexual preference. “Hindi pala, `tol. Ganito na talaga ako, kahit ano pang gawin ko. In born yata talaga. Hinahanap-hanap ko talaga. Minsan nga di ako tinitigasan sa misis ko.”
I asked, “saan ka mas nag-e-enjoy, sa babae o sa lalake?”
Faster than I can take another swig of my ice-cold beer, Gus answered, “No contest — mas gusto ko ang lalake.”
He followed up with a question, “Ikaw Migs, stable ka na naman, bakit di ka mag-asawa?”
I answered with another question, “ma-re-recommend mo ba iyang sitwasyon mo sa iba?”
That took him some time to answer. Then finally he did. “Nag-asawa ako kasi gusto ko talagang magka-anak. Pero sa tanong mo, kung marerecommend ko mag-asawa ang tulad natin? Hindi.”
