(Slate)   "Dear Prudence: I share a home with several other young women. A few of the girls are trying to determine if one of our roommates is gay, so they're using Parent Trap and Catfish tactics to learn this; I don't know if she's caught on. What do I do?"   (slate.com) divider line

Move out. Idiots aren't worth your time and effort. Find somewhere else to live, pack your shiat and move. Now. You've got better things to do than worry about this nonsense.

Why do the other roommate care if someone else is or isn't gay?

physt: Why do the other roommate care if someone else is or isn't gay?


Because they're small minded little twats with no actual life of their own, so they're going about playing a "what's pat" game with the new girl.

I've seen many documentary short films on this subject. Most of them had happy endings.

Send trapping videos, preferably in the shower.

So, they're asking Prudence if it's OK to ask someone to come out?
To play?

Parent Trap tactics?

Ah the old DOUBLE Haley Mills treatment

Say no more, say no more.

And if that isn't a financially viable option, shut yourself up in your room and do not engage at all in the drama. It's going to blow up and you will end up with an ex-friend.

Why can't they just ask her?
wtf.

How incredibly rude and childish. Doesn't even merit a response.

Because she might look at them in "that" way...

The author of the question is clearly gay.

This is no one's business, but she is clearly struggling with her own choices.

These are early college-aged women.  Being catty is a prerequisite.

I thought all young women were L.U.G.s??

And then the murders started.

Given that she openly admits to having a crush on the woman who her other roommates are catfishing I would say she isn't really struggling with anything.

It could be crucial to know, during the tickling and semi nude pillow fights.  You know!  Like in the movies!

I understood that reference, but that term generally applies in single-sex colleges, which have been kind of rare in the US since, oh, the 1970s.

In college in the '80s, I was sitting around a dorm room with 8 or 10 other idiot freshman when the conversation veered to who among the floor residents was gay.  There was a lot of focus on two of them in particular, Drew and John.

I bit my tongue for a minute--mostly because I figured they'd have been talking about me if I hadn't been there--but not for long.  I pointed out that we should all pray to our respective gods that they were both gay, because every girl I knew had a crush on both of them.  This, by the way, was absolute true.

John, it turned out, was standing in the hall listening; he told me this story when he came out to me.  We were roommates both during and after college, and he's still one of my closest friends.

Probably to be shiatheads - but then there's a fair chance that whoever instigated it is secretly hoping the answer is yes.  If so, they have a terminal case of romcom poisoning and should be shot immediately for their own good.

Or they're a huge gossiper and can't wait to tell everyone if she is. B*tches.
