…can we once again revisit the question of why we gender-segregate acting awards?
So we all know a dozen terms for the “fag hag” (/fruit fly/fairy princess/etc.), i.e. the generally straight woman who hangs around with a gay man or gay men as his/their friend/cheerleader/ethnographer/tourist/etc.
Is there a similar term for a gay man who wants to have the inverse of that with straight women - be their fan, paint their nails, gossip about their love lives, and otherwise annoying insinuate into their lives?
I have a growing list of women - generally people who live in other cities than I, whom I know mostly online - with whom I’d like to have this relationship. (Just ask TheCraptacular about how I begged them to guest-star in one of their Crappy/Spectacular videos! I’m sure several others of you reading this are wondering if I’m talking about you too. Probably yes.)
While often the fag hag relationship develops when the woman is single, I suspect this particular urge in me is related to being in a long-distance relationship. I don’t need to be on the prowl, but I also excess energy (and, in theory, time) from not being able to spend time with my boyfriend on a regular basis.
I don’t know. Thoughts?
