In Syria; the gay community has a gender identity problem; they are either macho muscular men or flamboyant feminine boys (cont.)

Anyone other than that (like me) simply can't find a date because they are not confirming into a heterosexual views of homosexuality.

This mentality of a person who wants to date a guy should look like what's socially constructed as a female is disturbing me.

Not to mention that it makes it impossible for people to look beyond the physical appearance and appreciate the personality of anyone.

Gender Identity is one of 4 items determining sexuality: it's ur own idea about ur gender: do u see urself as male, female, neither, both.

Next is your sexual preference: who you would like to sleep with? What is THEIR gender and their gender identity. #Sexuality

Third is your sexual practice: you might be wanting to sleep with men but you're sleeping with women for your own reasons. #Sexuality

Finally it's your sexual citizenship; how does the society and the law treats you based on the three previous elements. #Sexuality

@gaelick look beyond gender and treat people as people. And never whatsoever be afraid to ask questions.

Naturally, I've nothing but respect to feminine or macho boys. I just think that they should not reform to fit a hetero-normative views.
