Labeling

About remarking that you're gay in your AOL profile --

Advantage: getting contacted by other gays or bis
Disadvantage: getting contacted by other gays or bis

Having people emailing looking for friendship or conversation is cool. Given the size of Barstow and it's rather conservative nature this can be the only way some (closeted) gays can find any other gays in the area. Unfortunately for every email I get from someone looking for friendship from me I get 4 more looking for sex. And typically the latter are married military guys looking for quick sex. With a Marine Corps logistics base just outside town and Fort Irwin not too far away there are a lot of those out there. *sigh*
