Typical southern man*

MY favorite color is black, not pink. Who is Barry Manilow? I prefer to listen to Sum 41, The Offspring, and Blink-182. Oh, and when I'm in my bedroom, chances are I'm doing homework or chilling out like I am now, not banging somebody because I'm not promiscuous.

Sorry to shatter all of your ideas of what a gay dude is like, I know it's nice to live in fairy-tale-land.

I haven't been rude at all..and the term homophobe is just hilarious.

However YOUR comments make YOU appear to be someone with a very large and very disturbing chip on your shoulder. Good luck with that.

I have had a gay roommate. For a whole year. He never disclosed to me the day I met him. I think he pretty much took me because he had no physical attraction to me. Ooooh well.

One day, he brought home another guy and they spent the night. I kind of suspected it then. Much later, we were sitting around talking about BS, and he just kind of let it out. I was like ... Oh, OK.

Gay men are not attracted to every man or even gay man that they see. In fact, he was a good looking guy, and in retrospect I probably would have been flattered if he had come on to me.

Yes. I am secure in my sexuality and a very open minded individual...

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.
And you would be wrong. I am not "judging" - I haven't judged ANYONE here. This thread is about one's comfort level having a gay roommate, which you have obviously forgotten.

When you or anybody else says that gay people are gross for sleeping with who they do, that's being rude. I don't go around saying that I think hetero sex is gross, because I'm open minded and it just simply doesn't appeal to me.

Even if I did think it was gross, I would keep it to myself, because that is the polite way to be.

But do go on and keep telling us how you're not a homophobe.
Who the hell do you have ME confused with? LOL!!

I think you've pretty much settled any questions about that already. Apparently you can't keep posters straight.

Honey, have you ever actually had a roommate? Boundaries can be set, but they are never maintained.

Um....and...exactly where did I say that?
