My Buddy and Me: the Kind of Men We Are

In my dreams, my buddy and I are both men of integrity.

My buddy and I value honesty as much as we value oxygen.

My buddy and I don't think of ourselves as labels, like gay, straight or bi.

My buddy and I don't box ourselves into categories, like top and bottom.

My buddy and I don't pre-judge other people for anything, be it sex, love, dating, business, friends, whatever two humans can be to one another—my buddy and I don't pre-judge their worth in our lives based on the color of their skin.

My buddy and I recognize skin doesn't come in “colors,” skin comes in tones, tones of the same shade of monkey.

My buddy and I understand that we humans are monkeys who, about 200,000 years ago, took a different genetic u-turn than the chimps, gorillas and other great apes of that time. My buddy and I understand this u-turn led to the modern world, which is manmade and all in our minds.

My buddy and I are not bound by the conclusions about life reached by the human monkeys of 2,000 years ago from any region of the world. My buddy and I understand those human monkeys were only doing their best with the tools available, and that those human monkeys interpreted the events of their day—thunder, lightening, fall, winter, spring, summer, pregnancy, sex, love, death, dreams—in ways that helped them survive.

My buddy and I can relate to wanting to survive. But my buddy and I are not going to attempt to survive today based on hearsay about a past involving peoples who had no way of recording that past or providing evidence for the existence of the events on which the hearsay is based.

My buddy and I believe in science and scientific theory, which is based on evidence and in its truest form, never claims to be all-knowing and always right (go ahead: take your meds, listen to the radio, take that flight home. Evidence that the world is not flat is what enables the plane to figure out its journey). My buddy and I understand the math. The fact that my buddy and I both understand the math makes us even more horny for one another.

My buddy and I believe science is the only thing that keeps us human monkeys from deluding ourselves. My buddy and I have deluded ourselves plenty in the past. My buddy and I don't wanna be delusional anymore. My buddy and I just wanna be ... two horny human monkeys deliriously in love.

Anybody wanna be my buddy?
