Writing Challenge, Day 13
Sort of like a spin-off of the Girl Talk and Name Game parts, this time trying the IM conversation format. Bryan and Ryan are chatting online, talking about the trials and tribulations of having a gay.com* account.
(*gay.com is an actual site--it still exists today. Di pa uso ang Planet Romeo or its predecessor Guys 4 Men 'nun.) :)

bry0625: This is frustrating, Ryan. Ayoko naaa... :-(
bi_ologist: Frustrating in what sense?
bry0625: In every sense of the word!
I think my balls are no longer blue, they're purple na.
bi_ologist: Wooowww... feeling mo in-demand ka?
bry0625: That's another thing that's frustrating.
So many hot men, but no one's giving me the time of day!
bi_ologist: Did you follow the instructions I gave you the last time?
bry0625: You mean declare myself as a "bisexual" man? Inasmuch as I cringe at the thought of eating pechay, yes I did.
bi_ologist: May inasmuch-inasmuch ka pang nalalaman ngayon!
Your new job is expanding your vocabulary range huh?
bry0625: LOL! :-D
Gaga college ko pa ginagamit yan.
By the way, I don't think your use of expand was correct...
bi_ologist: Never mind that.
Inasmuch as I'd looove to discuss English vocabulary and grammar, we're talking about your frustration.
bry0625: I still don't get the "one-level-up" thing regarding local online sexuality...
bi_ologist: Marketing purposes lang 'yun Bry.
Think of it this way: even within our community (community talaga!) may discrimination pa rin.
Gay still means "parlorista" to some people, especially dun sa mga closet case.
bry0625: So I guess we have use "bi" because it's, what? Less offensive? That's the level-up?
bi_ologist: Plangak! :-D
bry0625: Eh pa'no yung mga actual na bi?
bi_ologist: No such thing. Ching! :-P
bry0625: You sound just like Perry.
bi_ologist: Whom I've yet to meet, by the way.
Anyhoo. Think of it this way:
gay : bi :: bi : straight tripper
bry0625: Ay wow, parang IQ test lang.
Hm... Which explains the bi "bois" na plakado ang kilay...
But you get the point. Hehe! At least good for you that your profile pic is... pwede na. ;-)
bry0625: Kawawa naman ang mga straight sa site na yun.
bi_ologist: Um, Bry...
If there are actual straight guys on that kind of site, either they're deranged, call boys, or their accounts were hacked.
bry0625: Ooh! Men for rent! HAHAHAHA!
bi_ologist: Forget I said that!
Cross that bridge when you're past twenty-five. May ilang taon ka pa. ;-)
