To each his own

Man insists he’s not a “crybaby twink” just because he doesn’t like anal

Bradley Birkholz has nothing against gay men who enjoy anal sex. He’s just not one of them. But for reason, many gay men seem to have a lot against him.

“I’ve been getting used to getting a slew of hateful comments,” Bradley writes in a new op-ed and vlog post published on Gay Star News. “When I wrote about identifying as a side, someone who doesn’t like anal sex, the trolling was off the scale.”

Bradley was called everything from a self-hating homophobe to a “an overly sensitive, upstart snowflake crybaby twink.” And all because he had the gall to say, publicly, that he’s not that into backdoor entry.

“I’ve unwillingly come to accept that trolling is something you have to deal with,” he writes. “But what surprises me is they almost always come from members of our own community.”

What’s happening, Bradley says, couldn’t be clearer: “I’m being bullied,” he says. And tha’ts not cool.

“As a community, I think we need to draw a finer line on when bullying is happening,” he writes. “How do we do that? Start by asking yourself: Is your comment polite and constructive? No? Then maybe re-think whether your ‘honesty’–because it is just a guise for bullying.”
