Call me late for dinner…

I feel like I have talked about this before, but it just happened to me again and it’s a huge pet peeve of mine.

I really, really hate it when people on the street (walking, not driving by or anything) call me faggot, but then when I call them out on it and insist they say it to my face, no one ever has. What I always find interesting is that the people are always younger men. You know, the exact crowd where you could say something like “man up and say it to my face” (I don’t frame it that way, but easily could). I really don’t understand why I have such a problem getting this specific demographic to call me a faggot, to my face. I just want to be able to read the body and facial expressions when they are saying it, that’s the only way I could ever know how they really mean it.

You should also realize that when I say I call people out on it, it’s never something casual. I have gone out of my way to follow someone, trying to get them to look at me and say faggot to my face, but no one ever has.

I could speculate all day why I have never been successful in getting in making this happen, but I wish I knew peoples individual reasons for it.

Any in reality, I don’t really know what I would do if I ever got someone to stop and call me a faggot to my face. In reality, I would probably just say “okay, thanks!” and walk away. I am not the most threatening looking person, so I can’t pretend that anyone would ever be afraid of me physically lashing out. I guess I could be one of those awful liberal gays and say something like “I bet they are just afraid that they will realize how hurtful they are being”, but I refuse to believe it’s that simple.

Maybe no one thinks it’s worth their time, but I don’t really buy that either.

Someday I will figure it out, I hope.
