How much of wanting another man is the desire to be that man? So many gay men love not men but the idea of masculinity; their desire is not for any individual man but for maleness as an ideal. This perhaps contributes to the promiscuity so many gay men pursue, because no particular individual can ever perfectly embody an ideal, or not for long…I think many gay men worship the power that oppresses them; I think too that all sexual relations in our society are about power over another or the submission to the power of another. For a gay man both roles are simultaneously available. Shepherd, Reginald. “On Not Being White.” In the Life: A Black Gay Anthology. Boston: Alyson Publications, 1986. 53. Print. (via stetx)
