Something I've always wondered myself.

do you ever feel like a novelty act? like people seek to gain some sense of "edge" in their own lives through hanging out with gay people? as in, they think that being straight, yet having friends who are gay, and getting to say, "well some of my best friends are gay/i have a gay friend, jack/jill," makes them cooler-than-thou? if so, does this bother you? do you enjoy the attention or resent being an accessory? both? neither?

it's funny when people find out you are gay and start with the "my cousin is gay" or "i have a gay friend or neighbor". it's like their way of saying I accept you because of this or I understand because of this.

Have you ever had anyone flat out tell you, in all seriousness, that you're going to burn in hell? If so let me know and i'll whoop 'em

Hmmm, I have 4 people in my life that I adore that are gay and I don't see myself as their "straight" novelty act nor are they mine. I think my friends are the best part of me because they bring out the best in me (or worse depending on the situation).

However, I do see where you are coming from because in some of my other social circles I feel like the token "Latina/minority" friend. Great thread BTW!!!

do you think that gay marriage will actually lower the divorce rate in the US due to the long-lasting, monogamous, life-long nature of many lesbian relationships?

what can lesbians teach straight people? aren't lesbians actually better at commitment and monogamy than straight people? isn't the burden of proof that gay marriage somehow cheapens the definiton of marriage entirely on the shoulders of straight people?

(my, these aren't leading questions, are they )

I haven't really experienced this, with the exception that first girlfriend was a girl "experimenting".

Oh but I get the "I have a gay friend" thing said to me all the time. The best is when you have someone telling you "I have a friend who's gay he/ she going straight because they want a family" I have had that twice in my life.

The entire "sanctity of marriage" as people's reasoning, is probably one of the weakest political arguments this nation has ever had.

I don't think divorce rates will change their minds, for the most of them turn a blind eye on the fact that 50% of their church is on their at least 2nd marriage.

You should respond

"Really? You seem like such a nice, normal person, no one would ever suspect."
“Come to think of it I have wondered about some of your wardrobe selections.”

have you ever heard the phrase, "you're gay! oh, what a shame/waste!"
