My best friend is gay, and to hear him talk about his partner I'd swear he was married to a woman.

You know, a friend of mine says that a polygamist - a man with two wives - explained that it's "like cats".

If you have one cat, it'll never leave you alone.

Two cats? They interact with each-other.

As a failed heterosexual turned cat owner, I can tell you that this is not the case.

All three cats are needy and they take up more of the bed than my ex-fiancee did.

And they shed.

Otherwise, I'm a lot better off.

FtA: "The sample size of 87 was relatively small, and the respondents were drawn via online ads and word of mouth, likely producing a selection bias "

Sound Legit.

I was at work, and a bunch of straight guy were biatching about female dating behaviors, and a femme gay man that worked there threw something in.

I think most of the straight men there including me, were wearing the subtext on our faces, 'true, but this is coming from a gay man'.

Then he said something like, 'at least I get laid', but in a nice way.

Considering that most of the men there were single, he probably had a valid point.

This is a case of study "design bias."

Everyone knows that married women don't give blow jobs.
And, everyone knows a white man's stress level and over all mean-ness is related to frequency of blow jobs(SFW link).

One of the most important-and most maligned-contributions of both the multicultural and LGBT movements of the past decades has been how the attention to minority experiences impacts everyone, not just minorities. African-Americans are not the only ones with a race; women are not the only ones with a gender; immigrants aren't the only ones who've left their homes to forge a new identity; gays aren't the only ones with a sexual orientation-or a secret to conceal.

And straight non-ethnic young males get jack shiat when it comes to PC America handing out gold stars to its precious little snowflakes.  Why on Earth would we be depressed?

I have known more than one gay person in my life, and I am quite positive that the statisticals pretty much average out between homo and hetero.

Speaking as a bi-guy, I can attest to the fact that relationships with BOTH sexes are equally filled with BS and issues.

Interesting. As a strait guy that has no sexual interest in menFrom what Ive seen of gay guys twinks are basically like cattier prissier biatches than women.Why for the love of fsm you would want a bigger biatch with less holes and no tits I fail to comprehend.

Purely anecdotal, but the gay men I've known in my life all seem to have an ability to bounce back from setbacks better and quicker than us straight guys.

There's definitely an emotional toughness that develops from all the bullshiat they have had to deal with in their lives.  Whereas a straight white guy that's faced relatively few challenges in his life that has his heart broken for the first time? That can get ugly. Real ugly.
 
2013-02-02 04:38:53 AM  
No sh*t.
Black men are darker complected.
Tall men's heads are closer to space.
Fishmongers are more likely to smell like fish.
So people who are called "happy" are less likely to be depressed? Wow! Amazing detective work there, Lou.

I see they use the word "queer" in the article. Is that still a thing? Are the PC police allowing that again or did it just fall through the cracks on its way over from the 50s?

As someone who has gay, my experience is that gay men (and lesbians) use their sexuality to deflect criticism. Straight people get told to shut up and stop acting silly, LGBT people get tolerated.

//I dated some neurotic guys, who only really needed to be told to just stop acting like biatches.

On that note, when it just says gay, do we automatically exclude lesbians? Shouldn't gay be inclusive to all homosexual relationships? Or do we assume gay means men because we have "homosexual" to use and it wasn't used? Does gay and/or lesbian have different connotations than homosexual or can/should the terms be used interchangeably?

TOG85: FTFA ... Sample size of 87 ... Highly scientific.


The number of participants isn't necessarily the problem, but the selection method is. A small number of participants is often easier to get for preliminary research. You don't go out and try to collect a thousand people if you haven't tried it with less than a hundred first. The problem is that with the 87 people you'd need to be able to draw a few homosexuals from a large enough group to get anything like a random sampling. With the word of mouth and fliers the researchers were probably just glad that they got any homosexuals at all. If my experience is worth anything they probably got the bare minimum amount of people in the homosexual group and filled it up with 50 to 60 straight people.

can't answer that. to be honest I'm lame and DNRTFA. Just going through the thread we only seem to be talking about men
Similarly, I know that I'm not bothered at all about my gf's period.Though it took some time for the idea of a period to not be icky anymore; but I was able to shed those concerns long ago. I think it helps that my gf and I have been  able to and have talked frankly with each other for some time. Even though we've only been dating since July, we've been best friends since we were 6 so we've had a long time to get to know each other and learn to communicate and to get over whatever and just like each other. For a long while now she sometimes mentions when she's having her period as it often affects her energy levels a lot (anemia from the period) meaning I don't get to talk to her as often after work, and it rarely effects her mood a little... that make sense at all?

do *you* consider gay and homosexual to be 100% interchangeable or do you think the words have different connotations?   Do they have a different feel to you? Is one more casual and easier to say or use?

I agree. When I hear "homosexual" I don't think of a particular gender. When I hear "gay" I usually assume male homosexual unless contex seems to indicate a broader meaning. If someone said, "gay rights rally," I would think of a mixed-gender crowd. If someone said, "there's a gay policeman beating the shiat out of Jerry Springer on channel 10 right now," I'd picture a male policeman wielding the truncheon.

I had a chicken telling me well, I'll stop there anyway she seemed very positive about periods. Strange little girl. anyway not really everyone is different and yes hormones are also fluctuating s well which can effect energy and such.

If you don't know what I mean buy a chicken don't ask, that was weird but tempting. Well not really.
