I think bottom shaming and internalized homophobia are intrinsically interlinked.

I’m so sorry you had to experience that. It’s a sad part of being a gay man sometimes.

We can internalize the misogyny at the heart of homophobia, and let it fester and grow toxic.

Thanks for writing that piece. It’s an excellent cautionary tale.
