Hey lukedamien! Thank you for your response. I've been feeling a little triggered as of lately, but it is nice to read some acknowledgement from another.
I don't think at all that gay men are all abusers. However, certain men who look like and remind me of my abusers creep me out though.
I actually was the leader of an LGBTQ health awareness and resource group for 2.5 years during university and became well acquainted with the prejudices and stereotypes associated with Queer men, and how unfounded they were. However, my volunteer work did show me how largely apathetic the gay community is, and how fragmented it has become- very little in the sense of "community" actually. It is very involved in materialism in those places were rights have been granted and many feel or grow up believing that the fight is over. I thought when I was 18 and going to university I would be meeting a wonderful, healing, and inclusive community that would show me what I was looking for when I was 13 and first started going online to meet other gay people (men). Yet that was not the case
