The Georgetown way of being gay?
A Georgetown senior named Corey has a post on DC blog The New Gay about the dynamics of being gay at Georgetown. In the post, he describes how he feels it is to be gay at Georgetown.
According to Corey, Georgetown gay life isn’t pretty (and hardly seems realistic), alternating between rabid conservatism and gay homewrecking. Here, he’s talking with his boss about someone who yelled at Planned Parenthood for being at the College Democrats internship fair:
I asked him a few questions about what the dude looked like, and upon hearing his answers, started laughing. “What you don’t know,” I told my boss, “is that I saw that same guy at a gay club last night at 2am, drinking and hitting on a forty-year-old married guy with a wife and kid.”
Now, I’m not saying that there is a right way and a wrong way to be gay. But there is a Georgetown way. Being a conservative, vehemently pro-life, preppy academic guy by day and a boozing gay by night is pretty Georgetown. Feeling like you’re ENTITLED to have equal rights for yourself, but not giving a shit about other oppressed groups (poor people?! minorities?!?) is also pretty Georgetown.
It seems insanely convenient that Corey would see this guy at a club, but there you go. I was pretty depressed by Corey’s post, even if he did lay the Georgetown-is-preppy stuff (Lacoste what?) on too heavy.
