So academia focusing on health promotion and prevention struggles with how to define men who have sex with men. They could say gay men, but this excludes bisexual and questioning people, as well as people who are on the downlow and still consider themselves straight despite the cock to suck here and there... So in general they use the term MSM (men who have sex with men). For some reason, this term and its usage disturbs me and i dont know why. Perhaps, it's because i fit in this category and would rather not be defined by my sexual preference. Gay seems to encapsulate other aspects other than sexual attraction, such as manner of ettiquette, ability to be witty in the right moments, etc. Am i overreacting and just need to shut the hell up, or do others feel the same i do?
