Interesting...as a female, I had male roommates in the past, and despite the fact that TWO HETEROSEXUAL PEOPLE WERE LIVING TOGETHER, nobody accosted anybody sexually!!!! Shocking! Not sure why it would be different if it were two guys and one or both was homosexual. Sharing living space does not equal "I can't wait to jump your bones." Life isn't always a porno...sorry to disappoint.

Yes, I would. I am secure in my sexuality and do not feel "threatened" by homosexuals.

I did have a gay roommate once; the situation was no different than any of the heterosexual male roommates I had.

Not even close. But I suppose it follows [man's] reason that when-ever a guy hears of two females living together he imagines them having naked pillow fights, regardless of their sexuality.

It is contradicting to be grossed out by such a situation, yet, assume you are sexually attractive enough for him.

Don't you think this sounds a little ridiculous.
The way you twist it, it does sound ridiculous. I have no issue with it as long as I don't have to see PSAs or have weekend guests is what I was saying. I believe gay people are born that way and I accept that, but I'm just not comfortable seeing the PSAs and knowing there could be gay sex going on in my house. Thats all I'm saying. But I may be forced tro reconsider, given the city I live in. I just need to decide if I can deal with it. I'm pretty tolerant, so maybe. Also, I have had gay friends in the past, so again, not an issue, I just don't want to hear about/see details of their sex life.

There is a big difference between tolerance and acceptance, but in your case it does not sound like you are even tolerant. I mean, how can you be tolerant if do not want to hear about/see details of it in your own house? That is not a sign of tolerance at all. That is like saying you think black people are ok....but don't want one as a neighbor. You do not have to like everything about homosexuality/gay culture, but don't say you are tolerant in the same breath as "I just need to decided if I can deal with it".

OK, fine. Guess I'm not expressing it the way I meant to. Not sure how else to say it. Maybe I'm just not used to being around it much. But I will say I've never even had so much as a disagreement or conflict of any kind with anyone who is gay. Actually, the people I've know who were gay I've enjoyed being around. I know it doesn't define who someone is. I just don't want to witness promiscuity. If that makes me sound predudice to you, so be it.

I'm amazed how many people seem to think that all gay men are just waiting for the perfect moment when they can rape poor, unsuspecting straight men. Have any of you ever actually known a gay man in real life? Because it doesn't sound like you have.
