Quote from dirkbogarde
why can't they hit on you? are you scared you might like it? i flirt with anyone who likes to flirt back it makes me feel good... down there

'I don't mind being friends with gays. But homosexuality is agaisnt my morals/religion. "
you're religion sounds fucked. i want a god who doesn't judge. biggrin


I don't know if that means that your really kinky, addicted to sexual stimuli, or just other. Doesn't matter really whatever floats ya boat and gets ya up in the morning.

Strangely enough I feel pretty damn good about myself when a guy hits on me, nice to know I have different options If I ever go down that road. Wish more women would be more aggressive like that. I really dig tomboys. biggrin

@Moritana and Lanatalis:
Except for breeding and pleasure. Hope there is some distinction and everyone doesn't go A-sexual or changing sex organs at will.

personally i don't mind having a friend that is gay. I think it is rather cool. I think they are fun people to be around if they are the fun and loose kind. I don't have a problem what my friend's sexual preference may be. If they asked for some advice i'd talk to them about it and i'd either say "go for it!" or "i think you should find someone who deserves you more." I honestly don't mind as long as they don't try anything funny with me if they happen to be a friend of mine who is a female. Other than that i don't mind.

I'll admit that in the group I run with, "gay" as an insult gets tossed around a lot and that I am a major source of said language. At the same time, I've several gay friends, know several more gays, and they know and don't care that I use "gay" as an insult, because they are smart enough to know that "gay" as an insult has long since left the realms of homosexuality and become no more sincere than "mother f**ker in connotation, even though the denotation remains with homosexuality (as "mother f**ker"s has remained with sleeping with mothers).

Quote from Meta
I don't consider "gay" to be a derogatory term. I find it like a shorter version of homosexual. "Fag" is derogatory though. The word gay also has the meaning of happy. So I sometimes use it to make fun of my friends. I have no problem with gay people but when they start hitting on me, or touching me that's when I draw a line.....



I understand how the British got "fag" as a slang for cigarettes (fag = shortened form of fagot = an unlit torch) but how did we Americans get "fag" to mean a derogatory term for a homosexual??

sorry if off topic, but I am curious about that

I have a couple of gay friends, but I've actually never been in one of these situations. Me and my friends make lots of gay jokes but not to disrespect gays. I'm not homophobic, but I have a who is rather questionable when it comes to his sexuality. He says he isn't gay but I'm not sure. And when he jokes 'bout it and try to grab my balls I kinda find that disgusting lol. But another friend who is openly gay, I have no problem with whatsoever. biggrin cool

I think the reason you are disgusted with his actions is because, you are not sure if he is gay or not, thereby you are not sure he is joking with you or not

It was only up until a few years ago that I was homophobic, at the time I was still young and stupid, judging people before actually knowing them; personally I didn't really know anyone that was gay, didn't really care, and was pretty against it. But then I got a job at a restaurant. This might not be the trend where the rest of you live but it seems here like 2 of every 3 male servers are gay. Before I realized who was gay and who wasn't, I was already friends with most of them. It was around then I accepted that fact that gay people aren't that different, they're just normal as everyone else but just easier to make fun of. Don't take this as if i still have something against gays but I will take any chance I get to crack a gay joke. Just last year one of my closer friends, came out of the closet, but there was period of time that only a few select number of people was suppose to know and I wasn't one of them. However through a short chain of people not associated with our normal group I found out, and for a good 6 months I milked every moment of it, this was a gay joke gold mine. In the end he found out that i knew and had a good kick out of it. Now that guy is my girlfriend's roommate, and since I stay at girlfriend's place 5 out of 7 days of the week, I am consistently exposed to their gaiety and I am fine with it.

it would be a bit odd if i had a problem with gay people....
but putting that aside, i dont care what others think, i talk how i wanna talk and live how i wanna live, i dont use gay in a bad way when talking about someone or something, but i dont have a problem with people that do, or people that are homophobic and try to judge me or my friend, couse from everything i've seen, most people that are homophobic are very simple minded and just fear difference in life, either that, or religous fanitics
i am not saying thats always the case, but its pretty much all i've seen

And you should be shipped off to a torture facility, dear. Believe it or not, you might not be that attractive.

u do know that saying that is basically a hate speech/statement against a certain sexual orientation. So are u trying to imply that u are better than them for being straight??

like i said before, homophobic people are quite simple minded people, eh?
on a different note its nice to see that there are nice people here that would be willing to defend gay/bi/trans/questoning people
thanksss
btw, i ish bi, i am not a bad person am i?? (i know i dont post much or talk alot in when i do post, but do i seem like one? lol)
and it does mean alot to me that people care about others rights as humans, but all your doing is feeding into it people, people like that just want a chance to get on their soapbox and preach their word to the world, thats why i just ignore them most of the time lol, its not worth my time to try and argue with people that cant even put up a decent argument.

Answer to the pol question: of course we can.
A person's sexual attraction is not a showing of his/her personality, (what do I care which gender this person sleeps with laugh )

If I meet with homophobic reactions I try to convey them otherwise or get away from them.
Being a homophob is reallly stupid. none
