The blog of a man from New York City who's closing in on 40 yet still remains a virgin. And not by choice.

Gay Oscars, gay decade
The gay cowboy movie may not have won the Oscar for Best Picture, but this still was a pretty gay Academy Awards with both Capote and the gay cowboy movie going in with a large number of nominations and Philip Seymour Hoffman winning the Best Actor award for his portrayal of gay writer Truman Capote.
This is the decade where it's cool to be gay, but it's not cool to be an older male virgin. It's ironic that the vast majority of Americans claim to believe in Christianity, yet gay people who sin (according to the overwhelming majority of Christian religious leaders) are considered to be cool, while virgins are looked down upon and mocked, as in the horrible movie which inspired the name for this blog.
Gay men are often good looking with extroverted personalities, two qualities that will get you far in America. In contrast, older male virgins are nearly always shy and ugly, the two most hated qualities. No one cares what happens to shy and ugly people. So even though there may be almost as many older male virgins as there are gay men in the same age range, no one cares about the problems of the virgins.
