Because none of your straight male friends can even begin to fathom how good buying a new pair of Jimmy Choos makes you feel?

Because they can meet them after work for a few glasses of wine, and they don't have to worry about being their cum-guzzling fark toy later on?

Because they have more in common.

The women all have fantasies about being desirable enough to convert the gay man.

The gay men are all actually straight pretenders who've just found a reliable way of banging gullible women.

They are forming an alliance to oppress us straight men. Mark my words.

Because sometimes you want to have a nice night out with someone without the subtext of "I want to rub my happy parts on you" dominating the conversation.

Everybody loves rubbing the happy parts together, don't get me wrong, but sometimes, you want to talk about other things without worrying about that.  Hanging around with people who definitely aren't interested in having sex takes a lot of pressure off.

Because bed sheets and curtains that's why..

As a bi-guy, my bestest friends have been straight men and lesbians. Can't speak to the hanging with hetero women thing cuz I haven't had that many straight female friends. (I like "boy" activities normally associated with straight guys or lesbians ) YMMV
 
2013-02-20 08:28:47 PM
Ever wonder why so many straight women and gay men are friends?

No, because "so many" aren't.
 
2013-02-20 08:30:13 PM
Because they want to hang out with someone who is friend-zoned and likes it that way?
 
2013-02-20 08:31:07 PM
Because twink gay men are basically "one of the girls" except with a penis?

I know as a strait man I have some butch the reality and not the fantasy lesbian friends that its basically like hanging with "one of the guys" except with bewbs.

Isn't this the truth.  When they sit on your face you can't even hear the stereo.
 
2013-02-20 08:33:32 PM
A lot of straight married women can't fathom the idea of hanging out with a straight unmarried man in public.
 
2013-02-20 08:33:36 PM
If anyone wants an honest answer?  Girls are hate filled she beasts who are constantly competing and against each others throats; they just hide it behind fake smiles and laughter.

Gay men give them the companionship of a girl without being in ANY form of competition.

Gay guys literally can't even wear the same SHOES as a girl. (Well usually)

Lack of sexual tension.

Think of it like this:
For men, the pool of women who they would be willing to have sex with is probably larger than the pool of women they would like to hang around.
For women, the pool of men they would be willing to hang around is probably larger than the pool of men they would like to have sex with.
And the reason for this is just basic reproductive differences.

With the end result that it's difficult for straight women and men to be "just friends" without the possibility of sex getting in the way. Gay men and women aren't going to have that problem, unless the woman keeps coming on to the gay man. You could have the same scenario with straight men and lesbians, except that the straight men are more likely to think of the lesbian as someone they would screw, than the straight women would for the gay men. See, phenomenon explained.

Back in the late 70's I had a friend whose dad owned a gay bar (full disco!).

Actually it was two completely separate bars under one roof - lesbians to the left and gays to the right.

I asked him why the need for 2 separate bars, and he said "gays and lesbians don't get along very well".

I've often wondered about that statement.
 
2013-02-20 08:37:29 PM
Because they have common interests: sucking cocks, swallowing cum and taking cocks up the butt.

/I agree, maybe I should watch less porn.
 
2013-02-20 08:45:54 PM
Nope! But I'm guessing it's because it's girls want to be friends with people they have things in common with, but they don't want to be friends with people who are going to steal their man. The latter requirement disqualifies other women, hence why girls all hate each other.

When my wife had a gay guy friend who was also catholic, I could go golfing on Sundays, get drunk early in the morning then get home and sleep it off while they went to church, then went shopping. What a way to live. I miss those days.

I keep hearing people come out against evolutionary psychology but articles keep getting put up that rely on it.  Now is evolutionary psychology a pseudo science or what?
 
2013-02-20 08:55:21 PM
No, it's because 80% of "gay" men bang at least one of their straight gfs in a given year.

aaand

Well a gay farker who was alive during the time had the following explanation for this:  Apparently in his experience the lesbians were offended that the gays didn't want them(even though lesbians had no interest in men) and so proclaimed them the ultimate misogynists.  Gays of course were offended by this and so they developed a cold hatred for each other.

That was the explanation provided by a gay farker, how widespread or how serious this was I couldn't say.

Wouldn't other women fit the bill of "aren't interested in having sex"?

Granted, I don't have a lot of experience to draw upon, but, from what I have seen, I feel like there can be some confusion about one's sexuality. Two lesbians I knew who were in a relationship would apparently go their own way and pick up random guys to have sex with, but they never identified themselves as bisexual. They were lesbian, period, by their definition.

Another argument that I have had is whether or not a guy who does gay porn is gay or bisexual. I was told that the act itself had no bearing on it, but his enjoyment did. If he didn't enjoy it, he must be straight. I disagreed with that notion. I feel like the action itself, granted that it is voluntary on the part of all involved, should be a factor that indicates your sexual preferences.

Also, I understand that labels give us a certain amount of comfort, but the reality seems to be that a lot of people's sexual situations may be complicated enough to not fit into a nice clean definition about their preferences.

What if he wasn't really gay? They might have been occupied in some other pursuit.

Not in the case of quite a number of seemingly heterosexual women.
