I find that when I imagine myself to be gay, i.e. identify with a homosexual stereotype, I feel an instant heightening of peace, openness and wellbeing.
Whenever I see a man that is open and joyful my gay-o-meter lights up -- it is as if 'enlightened' qualities are somehow more common in gay men. One of the reasons I've come up with is that gay men seem to have less need to identify with things, status and so on, and that they are somehow more comfortable with simply 'being.'
Anyone noticed this?
