Don't even begin to explain to me why my circle may be varied. My friends (who most happen to be straight) do not see me as the token gay friend. We are all FRIENDS first and foremost, just as I am a man first and foremost. While it's true that my experiences may be totally different from yours, you have no idea what the majority of people's experiences are like where I live, let alone where you live.

He wasn't attacking you, he was asking a legite question.

A legitimate question? It looked like a generalization to me.

I wasn't attacking you at all. My experience has been that most gay people, ones I know, run in more varried circles than the majority population....and uhh, that's a good thing. Chill out

I never stated that you were attacking me; however, this is what you stated: "If youíre gay, because I donít know, but if you are, or if you hang out with gay people, then that would explain why your circle is so varied."

That is a generalization. You may be able to say that about your friends; however, you wouldn't know the first thing about why my circle is so varied. It's not because I'm gay, it's because I am tolerant and so are my friends.

Moving along...

I've never been to Phoenix so can't say anything negative about it. I'm just going to be biased and vote for the city I know (Charlotte)
