Sometimes I have what I can only describe as "No Gay Days." These are days when I tell myself I am not going to do anything that reminds me that I am gay. I certainly avoid anything stereotypical (musicals, the Bravo Network), but I also avoid anything overtly masculine. I steer clear of humor based on homosexuality (like Tobias on Arrested Development), as well anything that might arouse me.
I'm not sure why I do this. I tell myself it is a away to focus on other things that make me who I am, or to avoid beginning to define myself entirely by my sexuality. Honestly, my ideal world is one in which my sexuality is a non-issue, like being left-handed or not liking broccoli. However, part of me wonders if it is just a way to go back into a mini-closet, or if it's rooted in my gay shame.
Is this a typical part of coming out? I would especially appreciate comments on this.
