Sex for Money
Many men–gay, straight and bisexual–can be sexual with the same sex or the opposite sex if money is involved. Most people, however think that if a man accepts money for sex with another man he cannot be straight.
Anything seen as non-masculine in a man is deemed effeminate or gay and is punishable under patriarchal standards.
“What are you a fag?”
“Dude, are you a little light in the Loafers?”
Men who have sex with men are punished by the prejudice and stigma attached to the act with people judging them to be gay–when they are not.
Straight men direct this homophobia at themselves for engaging in sexual behavior with another man and the results can be brutal.
