BARAZOKU

What to identify as...

I’m getting jaded by the term gay. 

But I flatout dislike the term queer in terms of self-identification.

Same-Gender-Loving is too clinical for me.

Same with MSM.

I would LOVE to call myself a member of the Tribe of Roses (barazoku) but I’m not Japanese. :(

I was all set to go with androphile, and I’m still kind of attached to the term, but I found out that the terms has been kind of co-opted by anti-femme gays who want to remove femininity from homosexuality. Which is impossible.

Argh…what to do!
