Firefighters dating gay
Brooke Guinan, a third-generation smoke eater who works and lives in Queens, decided to participate in the Vocal Organization for International Courage and Equality’s “So Gay So What” campaign to challenge perceptions about what it means to be a firefighter, she said.
“There’s such a pervasive feeling in the general attitude of society that firefighting is a job for straight men,” said Guinan, 27, of Astoria.
As with so many fetishes, it was born of my reaction to a single human being: a certain Baby Fireman who contacted me via the Internet personals a while back. MK: Are there any topics of conversation that firemen find especially interesting? Sure, it's true that we don't work the same kind of hours as some other people, but we also go to a lot of funerals, and visit a lot of guys we know in the hospital. But most firemen like to have fun, so they like women who can hold their own in conversation: who are capable of joking around, busting their chops, pushing back a little. MK: How about I send the bill to the Fire Commissioner, and we'll call it even? F: Also, firemen like women who know how to empathize--good listeners. Please let me know what happens if you do.xxx(ps--commenters: everyone had good points about the cheating business.
Though he was A LOT younger than I am, I decided to go out with him because he looked so hot in his pictures (kind of like an anime hero), and I could tell from what he wrote that he was exceptionally smart and quite funny to boot. MK: Is there a certain type of female who is especially appealing to a fireman? If you're willing to have fun, that's more important than looks, to tell you the truth. We're supposed to be tough guys, and to pretend the stuff we do doesn't scare us. F.: I feel like I should give your readers fair warning: If you date a fireman, he's not going to want to stay home with you, watching a movie.
Plus, I figured that, if nothing else, I'd have something to blog about. But seriously, go to any watering hole that's close to a firehouse and ask if it's a firemen hang-out. But sometimes it does, and sometimes your best friends die. We like to go out a lot, have fun, go to bars, be with our buddies.
As it turned out, he was handsome, hilarious and he talked non-stop (which I like, because it means I don't have to reveal that I don't have much on the brain, except, in this case ... Now, we didn't exactly fall in love--in part because it was clear to me he was only in it for fun, and I'm not sure I could be serious about someone his age. Some of us get part-time jobs as bartenders or bouncers, so we often hang out at the place where one of us is working. For both locals and tourists who want to go fireman-watching? And we're not supposed to talk about that stuff--because we're supposed to be macho--but it can be really therapeutic if there's someone we can talk to about everything. Any fireman will always be half-married to his job and to the other firemen he knows. There's a saying that firemen make great fathers, but bad husbands.
