It's pretty arrogant of straight guys to think everyone wants them just because they are straight and male.

I can't stand it when queers come up to me and grab my ass. Sickens me. Gays need to learn to keep their hands to themselves!

I cannot understand why a straight man would be upset if a gay person showed an interest. If he is truly straight, a simple "no, thanks" or such would be sufficient. Or is it not that they are fearful of the person asking, but rather that they might accept? I think that is the real fear. Personally, I would never bother with a man I knew was straight. The word straight alone tells me they would not be interested. After all, I have had women interested in me before they knew I was gay, and simply telling them that fact was enough for them to move on to the next guy.

I highly doubt that happens to your straight friends unless they are going into gay bars by mistake. You need to learn spelling and grammar. Are you two still in middle school? It sounds like it by the way you two talk and gripe.

It's pretty perverted of Queers to think everyone likes to give and take a d!ck up the a.ss, just because they do. Queers will go after anything with a d!ck, no matter how old or how young they are.
I have class! I don't sleep around with everyone and anything that has a penis, maybe you do. I like men, not boys.

Now you know what women have to put up with all day long. But I refuse to believe that any self-respecting gay would come up to you. Usually, most gays are very picky. I suspect you are complaining because gays come up to your friends and ignore you.

That assumes the article is correct. I do not believe it is.

Normal straight men do not fear gay men. If they are not interested they can be quite clear about it. If they are they usually like to keep it a secret.

The so called "straight" men who aggressively object and express homophobia are men who secretly have deep down same sex desires which for biblical reasons they wish never to surface. These people can be extremely dangerous should they see a gay man being openly gay which reminds them of their secret desires. The way most of these homophobes deal with the problem is to put gays down which they believe will convince themselves and others that their strong sexual desires for homosexual sex do not exist.

What a horrible way to live ones life, always hiding what one really feels and all because of 6 stupid verses in the Bible.

Oh lawdy, now you've gone and done it. You brought up the Bible again. Now this thread is going to become a "Joe whatever his handle is" pulpit for spewing that biblical garbage.
