Being an older, single man makes you a target

I am sick of homophobia. The ignorance, fear and smear that attend it. Not every older, single, unattached person is gay.

I am male, 60 years of age, and single. However, this does not make me gay.

For a variety of reasons, I am not married. I don’t settle easy and I have lone genes.

Remember, Michael Collins’s father was in his sixties when he married, and Michael Collins was the youngest of eight children.

Being single, older and unattached makes you a target for bullies (male/female) and ignorant people. Smear travels fast.
