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.

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?

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.

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.

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?

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.

Well, my special girl has some sorta unfortunate genetic doohicky that causes anemia when she has her period. It's not something that she's been able to positively affect by increasing the iron in her diet. Though I have been bugging her to start exercising regularly (and I will persist in doing so until she does). So she gets really worn down and sleepy during her time of the month.
Ah, what the hell, a couple of anecdotes. A few years ago she was complaining that that particular cycle was sucking more than usual and I told her that if we inverted the frequency of cycle we would end up with her period hertz.. she was less than amused :D
Also, and I must admit I love her so much for this, I've been bugging her for ages to exercise regularly. more than ten years. For a while in college I got her to, but she didn't have time during eye-doctor school or during her rotations, and especially when she was MOD (managing doctor) for the clinic she worked at for a year or so after graduating. Now that she has more free time I'm bugging her again, to the extent that for Xmas I got her waterproof headphones and iPod shuffle. Anyways, I love that I can bug her to exercise and she understands I mean it because it's important for her well being and long term health. NOT because I am making any comment about her weight or appearance. I know that she is not receptive or appreciative when her mom has made similar comments in the past. Also, I know form past experience that telling a girl friend that she should really start exercising regularly is like burying a land-mine and deciding to do jumpingjacks on it... it is inadvisable. I ♥ her so much :)

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?

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.

Well, my special girl has some sorta unfortunate genetic doohicky that causes anemia when she has her period. It's not something that she's been able to positively affect by increasing the iron in her diet. Though I have been bugging her to start exercising regularly (and I will persist in doing so until she does). S ...


Sorry about what's going on I probably wouldn't be the best one to talk too but everyone has there difficulties it seems.

who would have thought that not worrying about pregnancy and periods made such a big deal?

How does that explain the lesbians....or are they happy because their partner isn't grossed out by their bleeding and spewing of mucus each month?

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

It's alright, it's just something we have to deal with, but all things considered she's definitely got it much better than my prior two girlfriends.  Granted I guess I won;t really know what it's like until we can finally move in together (nor/cal so/cal ) split since college started. But I think she'll be moving up here when the lease runs out in the Apt she shares with her sister. As I mentioned we've only been dating for half a year, but I've wanted to live with her for many years now (she *is* my best friend) and we've been pretty truly-madly-deeply in love now for a couple years at least. I can't wait. <3

Uchiha_Cycliste: tinfoil-hat maggie: Uchiha_Cycliste: tinfoil-hat maggie: Uchiha_Cycliste: log_jammin: Uchiha_Cycliste: On that note, when it just says gay, do we automatically exclude lesbians?

when I hear "gay" it's either a lesbian or a gay man. Burt for some reason when I hear "homosexual" i think "gay man" but never a lesbian.  I don't know why.

Interesting I would have considered the common lexicon to interpret things the opposite way gay - >men and homosexual -> men/women.

What does everyone else think?

I agree I often at say a bar say I'm gay and well no one confuses me with a gay man and I've heard it often from others as well it's just easier than saying everything else.

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?

Well saying gay is easier and yea I guess I do but granted I'm really bi or bi-sexual although really I learned some time ago I was pan-sexual. So well for me in passing it's easier to say I'm gay but yea it's leaving a lot out right?

I get ya. I self-identify as straight but really occasionally have bi attractions... saying straight is just much easier. And unfortunately in some scenarios the only "right" answer to that question.

\ain't family grand?


No worries Kinsey scale and all that, I really do believe most people are at least somewhat bi.. I mean well let's leave out girls I've known but the gay gay's a good many of them experimented with women, hell I know a few guy's that do even almost on the down low. Life is weird embrace it well before it bites you in the ass ; )

I agree with all this, but that doesn't change the fact that revealing to my father that I've probably slept with more guys than his daughter would almost certainly end in being disowned =/

Asa Phelps: 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.

Swore he hadn't had a conversation about drapes in 13 years.


I had to Google this to get the wording right:

What is a cat?
Cats do what they want.
They rarely listen to you.
They're totally unpredictable.
They whine when they are not happy.
When you want to play, they want to be alone.
When you want to be alone, they want to play.
They expect you to cater to their every whim.
They're moody.
They leave hair everywhere.
They drive you nuts and cost you money.
Conclusion: They're tiny little women in fur coats

So the distance sucks but I've discovered that it affords me one unique opportunity, to write Andrea love letters and love poems. A few months ago I was even able to find a quill-fountain pen and ink well so I could write them properly. It takes about an hour to write what takes ten minutes to type, but it's worth it because I know the letters make her feel special.
I've also found that when we are together I really like helping her around the house, or running errands or whatever, as opposed to being willing to help when asked or doing things when they have to be done. There's a joy in helping out (because I know it helps her and makes her happy) that I've not felt before in past relationships with. How I feel with her is simply incomparable to how I felt with my HS sweetheart* and gf after college, regardless of how in love I was then.  I have no doubt that we'll be together and madly in love for the rest of our lives. And it will be so fun, when we are 81 to tell people that we have been together for 75 years.
Heh, in HS my gf suggested that I ask Andrea out to Senior Prom, since she had been friends with Andrea longer than I had known her, and knew I had asked Andrea out many, many times (all unsuccessfully). So wit my gf's blessing I asked Andrea to prom, to which she of course said no, and then I went with my gf; though the four of us went together. Kinda funny.

And just for fun, here's a pic from when we were trying to figure out where the camera was in a photo-booth. I ended up being able to use this picture inside a heart shaped locket I gave her for Xmas

Yup. And FWIW she does know of my history, since we've shared everything about ourselves, like forever.
It really helped when we started dating because we already know everything about each other, and know how to communicate (which is really important).

Women suck. There's really very little point to them, other than to make men miserable.

I miss being alone so much that I'm contemplating moving into a seedy motel in the bad part of town just to get out of the hell I'm in now.
 
2013-02-02 09:26:30 AM
If this were even true it would be because straight men go through life trying not to get it up the ass and gay men like getting it up the ass. Stress free environment.

Well. gay men are looking for people who don't have to be drunk and dancing for the last three hours in order to want sex, so there's that.
 
2013-02-02 12:42:12 PM
Because some percentage of straight men are gay - so they're miserable because they're suffering in silence.  Gay men have the honesty to deal with who they are and embrace it.   Which would you rather be?

Is there a version of the "you know how I know you're gay" game in the gay community but instead of gay use top/bottom? Because I think we got that info right there.

Yep, those women and minorities sure do have it great. I bet you'd love to switch places with a Navajo woman and experience what she experiences.

It can be tempting to think that masculine = top and feminine = bottom, but that isn't necessarily the case. 

I've been friends with couples where it decidedly was not the case.
