He's not posted on Oasis for nearly a year... and when he did post, they were almost always as Forum topics or comments to the journals of others.
Here is his introductory Forum post on Oasis:
As you can readily discern, Endymion is a most capable and ambitious student --- primarily specializing in languages (many!). For the past year (after graduating Beijing) he has been a scholarship student of Greek in Athens. This summer he's being honored with a scholarship for international studies in Oslo (returning to Athens for the fall). Parenthetically, he also has an interest in Old Norse, but that is not this summer's focus.
Endymion has today written the following... granting me permission to repost it here in hope that his friends --- both old and new --- may make their own insightful comments:
"I am confused about what real friends for gays are about. Damn, I am writing from the credentialing center of Athens Special Olympics. Don't have work at the moment... don't have much work most of the time actually.
You see. From all those gay movies and interviews about gay people, i have the impression that true friends of gays are gays also. I still remember a line from the notoriously famous "Queer as Folk": there are only two kinds of straight people,those who hate you in the face and those who hate you in the back. I don't believe in so much hate. But now I am really doubting that it has some sense of it's own. At least really good friends would not come out of them. You'll be wondering why i suddenly have such wierd thoughts. It's like this, my friends (at least I think of them as friends), on Pride day, they were supposed to go with me to the parade. But they didn't because they have something to do in the university. and later after the parade, there was the artistic part--performances, they came to dance and have a good time. When i talked to them about the parade ( coz it was great), and they told me that they were not interested in the parade,just for the dancing party they came. That hurt a little. And another friend of mine, she was with me, and I was walking in the parade, she didn't want to,but in the end she was in also. But after the parade, she was not so happy about it....
This is fucked up. I know a lot of people would come in and get out of your life. But I really would like some reliable and stable ones at this point. Maybe i am looking in the wrong direction? Maybe I should just trying to find friends in "people of my own kind"??
What do you think of this problem?"
