Um, anyone secure with their sexuality would have no issue with this.

Depends on what you mean by "not appealing". If you, being a straight person don't find the idea of being with someone of the same sex appealing, then no. I wouldn't expect a straight person to find it appealing, since they aren't attracted to the same sex, just like a gay person doesn't find heterosexual sexuality appealing.

If you, however, are going to judge people purely based on their sexuality and not want to live with them because they are attracted to the same sex, I'd say that's homophobia.

Nonsense. Being secure in ones sexuality has nothing to do with it. How is a guy supposed to eat his dinner knowing that his roomate is in there getting his poop chute pounded? No thanks!

I guess it's confusing how sexual preference would have anything to do with a roommate situation, assuming boundaries are set for what happens in the house.

If the person is paying their bills, doing their chores, friendly and respectful in the home environment, why would their sexuality come into play?

Would you be just as bothered if your straight male roommate was bringing a parade of female one-night-stands through the apartment, or is it just the idea of gay sex happening that's the problem? Gays don't do anything in the bedroom that straight people don't also do.

As for roomates, not only would I be worried about him being attrtacted to me, but I also wouldn't be fond of him bringing over "lovers" and my witnessing them holding hands, kissing, in the bed together etc. It's not something that I would be voluntarily willing to expose myself to.
1) Most people set boundaries for lovers coming to the house and
2) The fact that holding hands/kissing etc. between gays bother you so much, indicates you have strong homophobia. But don't worry, homophobia will definitely keep any gay guy from wanting anything to do with you so you're safe.

Yes, you are a homophobe. A hypocritical one, no less.

How freakin ignorant. 1) I doubt in most roommate situations, any roommate would tolerate noisy sex while people are eating dinner. Orientation is irrelevant.

And 2) More heterosexuals have that form of sex than gays, so you would have to worry about that with a heterosexual roommate too.

Scientific studies have shown that homophobes and those most offended by gays and their behavior are most likely to be aroused by gay porn. So yes, it has a lot to do with someone secure in their sexuality. Based on the absurd stereotypes presented by anti-gays in this thread, I doubt most of you really have much contact with gays. Your perceptions are ridiculous.
