Lots of famous actresses will only have gay men and other women in their "entourage." This way, they don't have to worry about inappropriate advances from straight men.

The Gay Thread

April fools was last month, guys.

I'm just waiting for someone to say, "well that's discrimination, too. Just cos they're straight they can't be in Taylor Swift's entourage? Way to dash all GAF's hopes and dreams right there." And then take it a step further to suggest that no straight man is going to want to hold [insert famous actress' name here] purse while she shops, anyway. But I just don't really see me saying those things. Someone else's gotta do it.

I mean I do see all of this as unnecessary stereotyping and generalization.

Ha. I just think I'd be a lot more likely to join up with a group of guys I didn't know if most of them appeared to be gay, than if they all seemed straight. Of course that's just appearance and some het-appearing guys are gay and vice versa, but I just think I'd feel more relaxed that way.

Me either... I don't think sexual orientation matters in whom I pick as friends to hang out with...

What I mean is, if I was out someplace with a girlfriend and there were six guys beside us, I think I'd be more likely to end up at their table if they were slightly flamey. Call me crazy.

Why is that so, if I may ask?

The Gay Thread

Well in that case...

I was confused. It really didn't make much sense haha.

It was the "girlfriend" thing. Made sense at the time!

That has honestly never made sense to me either.

Ha! That's a strange Americanism that I find myself using sometimes although it always does sound weird. Anyway, now does that make a bit better sense now, about joining up with a bunch of guys? In the original anecdote, it sounded like the straight guy who had better luck meeting girls with gays, was talking about moving in groups of several rather than just a few.

It's not a bad idea.

As a rule of thumb, your boyfriend's level of discomfort with gays is about the same level of dislike he has for women.

If he hates gay people, he probably hates women generally.

I really don't think this is true. Or maybe it is true for something extreme "hate" but not for general "discomfort".

I know plenty of guys who would readily admit they are uncomfortable, for example, by watching two gay men kiss, but are absolutely respectful of women, etc.
