It’s time to write about SEX again as my readership has fallen off. SEX is an uncomfortable topic for most people I know. Sure, men joke about not getting enough; but when, as doctor, I asked them about it, they clammed up. It’s great fodder for jokes of every kind.
Practices once considered to be taboo are now considered normal and displayed everywhere. If you watch TV, you know that every show has at least one gay and one lesbian couple. We’ve come a long way from the closet to the stage. Don’t get me wrong. I’m glad the closet door has opened and no one has to hide his/her love any longer. I’m glad the world has normalized being gay or lesbian but do we have to see it on every show?
Do you know what LGBTQ stands for? If not, it is: Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Questioning. Over the years, I treated patients who fell within the parameters of each group. Most of the time, they hid their sexuality from others out of fear. They feared being ostracized, physically attacked, fired or worse. They had good reason to hide. Society has a way of subjecting its morals on others and outliers always take the brunt of society indignation.
Now, I’m no expert on the topic of sexuality. I’m just pandering to my readers and writing about SEX to boost my ratings. But, ask yourself a question. Why does my readership triple when I mention sex? It’s probably because no matter how open or closeted we are about SEX, it is the one topic we all can’t get enough of. It’s also the one place people are the most uncomfortable. Why is that? Is it because of our puritanical past? Because of what religions have labeled as “sins”? Or is ti because we no longer know what’s normal and what is not normal.
What is normal? That’s easy to answer. Normal is what you do alone or with your loved one(s). Therefore, abnormal is what others do that is different from you. The operative word is different. Since the beginning of time, difference in groups of humans has been the justification for war and atrocities. The world has been at war with the LGBTQ community because they have been perceived as different ,and they have suffered.
I asked a question before. Do we have to see LGBTQ on every show? The answer is yes. If the LGBTQ community is ever really going to get free of the closet, society has to recognize and accept that they are NORMAL. It’s time! Many are concerned with the effects seeing openly gay and lesbian couples on TV is going to have on our children. Hopefully, their generation will no longer use the acronym, LGBTOQ but instead see these people as normal members of our society.
