RAWR

I'm bisexual myself.

I love my gay and lesbian friends. LOVE THEM TO DEATH CHYEAH!

I hate it when people look at them as sex icon... they are just like straight people loving someone... eesh.

I'm not female, but I'm going to answer as though I have a deep understanding of women.

I think there are several facets to this interest in gay men by straight girls:
  1. Girls love having a guy best friend (for some reason), or at least a guy who is a close friend. Often, this is a guy they'd never date (he's dorky, he's not cool, he doesn't play the guitar, whatever), but he's fun to have around. But there's always the risk that he could fall in love with the girl, which would ruin the whole thing (this is likely, since he's probably only really nice to the girl because he has a crush on her). However, if the guy is gay, this risk is completely removed from the equation, thus the girl can have her cake and eat it, too.
  2. Gay guys stereotypically are into fashion, shoes, shopping, whatever -- things girls (stereotypically) like, too. This may or may not be true, but it's true in the media's depiction of gay dudes. Piggybacking on #1, this means that a girl with a gay best friend not only gets an "awesome" guy friend, but one that likes the same shit she likes to boot (i.e., he won't refuse to go shopping because he's watching football).
  3. Having a gay friend shows that you're totally open to the homosexual lifestyle. This is very important to hipsters.

yes, but i'm talking more or less about how some women obsess over men who are gay. such as, them gushing over, "omg, we're totally going to be bffls because he's gay." the blatant stereotyping of some towards gay men is borderline disgusting. it's not to say that in many cases, the stereotypes aren't true, because they are. but, it's the oversimplifying and shallow treatment people take towards the entire lgbtq community that really just pisses me off.

My boss is homosexual. Honestly, I didn't know for the longest time. I didn't see him as openly gay compared to, say, my ex-coworkers at Express. Yea I just found out THIS school year, even though so far I've been working with him for 3 years now. It bothers me how people stereotype gay men as flamboyant because every time a man acts a certain way.

Apparently my boss acted "flamboyant" to one of my newer coworkers at the library, and she told me "omg Christina, did you know he was gay? I can totally tell. Just how he acts and he's so..." *she does that flapping hand motion* Honestly, didn't think he acted that way at all and shocked at how she made a big deal out of it. But then again, she's Korean and most, if not all, Koreans are Christian/religious somewhat. Thus, I can see why she was so shocked.

Love is universal and no one person should be denied their right to love whomever. It also shouldn't be that big of an issue.

That being said I think everyone has a preference.

omg i know right ! my mom had a co-worker that was totally quiet and no one really knew about him at my mom's company. that was until one of the other co-workers saw him at a fancy restaurant with this other guy holding hands and what not. reminds me of a tyra episode that this gay porn star got fired from subway because the customers didn't want "a gay guy" making their sandwiches.

this piece from teen vogue encapsulates the view many straight women take towards gay men - that they're simply accessories to take around.

QUOTE
Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails...But now faith, hope, love, abide these three; but the greatest of these is love.
1 Corinthians 13:4-7,13


That's exactly what love is, no matter what Christians have against gay people. It should know no boundaries.


Also, I hate the stereotypes. Yeah, I'm gay, but it's not the only thing that makes me. I hate musicals, I hate fashion, I hate shopping, I hate gossiping, I hate swaying when I walk.

umm. Christians don't have anything against gay people. It's God. God hates gay people because they defy the Bible and are God-hating sinners. That's what Christians have against gay people. God you're so closed-minded, you hate so much. Are you stupid? Gay people love fashion, shopping, catching, gossiping, it's what defines gay... you're just a poser

It's great to see so many accepting people on this board!

Luvs it!

& if you want to get technical...we're all sinners. In some way. Big or small, you can't weight the value of how wrong, or how right...

It's either wrong or right. So all you masturbaters, all you shellfish eaters, if you are of Christian faith... you might as well be screwed with the Gays (if that's how you really feel)!

God doesn't hate sinners. He hates the sin, and feels sorrow and compassion for the sinner.
