      Who said nothing good comes out of Alabama.

      However, Mr. Melvin is apparently fighting for the life of his
      new puppy and may not be in the mood for publicity right now.

      I’m always fascinated by these later in life coming out stories. Did they really not realize they were gay up to that point or were they just in denial? Is there some sort of cognitive disconnect? Is it an inability to connect the dots? I just don’t get it. I’m not effeminate and can easily pass as heterosexual, but I knew by the time I was in 6th grade. I didn’t come out until college and played the part up ’til then, but I knew it as an act. There was never an epiphany. I remember wondering at a very young age why the attractive women presented in the media didn’t excite me. My understanding of what it meant to be gay coincided with my understand that I was gay, but I don’t remember any specific moment. It was so early in development.

      I just don’t understand how someone could be an adult and not know.

      @erikwm: We all develop and things click at different rates for us. Some people may be in denial; some may have urges both ways until they finally land on one side or the other (or even continue to sample both sides throughout life); some may have a blind spot in their self identities; and some of us are simply clueless until a clue smacks us up side the head. My experience is that not all guys are self reflective; and recognizing that one is gay at an early age requires just a touch of that.

      How many women are out there in the gulf sweeping up crude oil? And, when did Alabama become “the oil industry”?

      In every tale I’ve heard about oil workers it has been about men, all men, working long hours away from women. And, we all know what men do when they are isolated from women.

      Sometimes though, a guy can just be too attractive to be “one of the boys”. It’s like the old saying that ugly guys were picked for straight porn so as not to make the male viewers uncomfortable. Sometimes a guy can just be so “pretty” he will make other guys uncomfortable (even if the guy is straight).

      @erikwm: From the account here, it sounded like his job was very demanding. Some people genuinely like their job, but others can dedicate their lives to work to cover up for other dissatisfaction in their lives.

      I personally did not come out until I was 25, but not from lack of knowledge beforehand. I was working a highly stressful, low paying job before then. When you’re balancing work life with wondering how you’re going to pay next month’s bills, that doesn’t leave a whole lot of room for working through your sexuality…or going out for that matter. I always had an inkling before that, but it was not something I gave a significant amount of thought to. It was when I was promoted at work that I suddenly had a lot of free time on my hands to think about things like relationships and what I really wanted out of life.

      You could miss out on a lot of things about yourself if you’re spending a lot of energy worrying about other things.

      @level75RDM: I can understand that, but human sexuality begins to develop with puberty. What about your teenage years? Were your sexual desires unfocused in any given direction? What went through your mind when you masturbated? You’re talking about employment, a career and I knew before I finished elementary school. There is a large chasm between our two experiences.

      I’m of the belief that many straight-identifying guys secretly harbor desires for other men but see it as a form of rule-breaking. The rules for straightness are very strict and require that you abide by a code of conduct. If you breach that code of conduct, you’re no longer a part of the straight club.

      I think a lot of gay-identifying guys underestimate how important this code of conduct is for straight-identifying guys.

      Interestingly, once you take a straight-identifying guy out of his circle of straight-identifying friends, he tends to let his guard down, especially if he’s had a few drinks. This is where his same-sex desire may come out and manifest as an animalistic outburst of passion, albeit for a few minutes.

      I met a guy like this once and he humped me like there was no tomorrow.

      All the negative comments about Colby have been removed despite the fact they didn’t violate the comment policy. How very professional it is to continue to sculpt the false image he has crafted. From first hand knowledge this is a very inaccurate article. He is from Louisiana, not Mobile.

      WTF. “You’re gay? Yeah, well prove it. Here’s a pic of a naked wiener, now show us your boner.”

      @Kevin B, given the stigmatization of gay people in many immigrant communities, it is very unlikely that someone would claim to be gay unless he or she really were gay.

      You cant just “take their word for it”. They have to prove they are gay some way. The old test was effective but is a very queasy one.

      That is naive and dangerous. Just because someone says he is gay doesnt mean he is. Otherwise it can be abused. Refugee status for gays is there to help gay people. If its is abused, gays could lose this avenue to escape persecution – and the people who would suffer are the real gays, the ones who need it the most.
