These are different times to be sure. Used to be we would keep our promiscuous ambitions behind closed doors. Not anymore and it now directly affects me. I have a nephew that is living in my downstairs. This isn’t a nephew from across town. He is from across country. He does not know that I am fully aware he is gay. My sister has cried on my shoulder many times about the young man. Picture this...... A movie star handsome 6’4” square jawed 22 year old man that honestly earns almost 90k a year. The young man is so handsome that young women audibly gasp when he goes by. And I am not exaggerating one bit. Point being, at 22 this young man has the world at his grasp. I love the young man. He has photos on his phone of him sitting on my lap as a toddler. I love and care about the boy which is why he took a job transfer here and is living with me. He hasn’t breathed a whisper with me about being gay. And frankly, I don’t believe he is. I happen to feel in the pit of my gut that he is acting on peer pressure. I may be old, but I do remember the impact that peer pressure had on me as a young man. And these days when it is in vogue to trumpet your erotic preferences for all to hear, how can it not affect a young person? That’s my question. Is sexual preference dictated by peer pressure. Or are we to believe all the hype we hear these days about gender confusion and the like?
