Shame isn’t a word that exists in the lexicon of the gay community. Yes, it’s often misspelled as “Shaim” on the Wal-Mart purchased poster boards held by the Westboro “Baptist Church” protesting outside of a Lady Gaga concert. But it’s one of the very few things that never make it past our lips.
Still, our keen ability to gleefully guzzle an entire bottle of wine in one sitting (if we were a comic book superhero, it’d be our superpower) isn’t the first item we’d gloat about ourselves (see: our spinning-class-forged booty, our collection of Twilight figurines).
