After a few of the posts I've seen in this thread, I wonder if I should be more worried about having a straight room mate.

People who live in the most expensive big cities often have roommates. It's a good alternative to being broke all the time.

There are a lot of "strange" straight people also. You're taking a huge chance rooming with just about anyone. There are a lot of stories on this board about roommates with serious issues. This is why I care more about one's mental-stability more than sexual preference.

Since I am secure in my sexuality(straight-male) I wouldn't have a problem with it at all.

My two gay friends are not effeminate and are also taller and more muscular than average. I have met the queenie types and yes, they are generally annoying. They do not find me interesting either, so it all works out fine. Strangely I have been told that the fem guys are not always the "bottom" they appear to be.

Fortunately, the straight guys I know aren't a--holes. If the ones on this forum were all I had to go by, I'd definitely steer clear.

Gay people are not strange, what a bizarre generalization. I find it hard to believe you have gay friends if you talk to them like this.
Well I think gays people are strange. You dont think men wearing eyes shadow and carrying purses around is strange? you dont find "women" who act like men to be strange? you dont find someone who turns from a "she" to a "he" & vice versa to be distrubing and strange? most people find tese things weird... and i defintely dont want a "roommate" who cant figure out if she is male of female or who acts like a man. this is why i will never live with "roommates"

You know its true.
"I don't hate gays....some of my best friends are gay!"
Every time I hear that I know I'm being lied to.

Secondly....
Maybe people {gay and straight} think YOU'RE strange.
I sure do.
I don't hate gay people. a gay male friend of mine is a make up artist and he also does hair i think he is fabulous and funny. on the other hand lesbians are very irritating.

I work in Musical Theatre. I see more gay people on a daily basis than you will probably ever meet in your life. And not a single one of them, even the flamboyant ones wear eye shadow and carry purses. This proves to me you have no gay friends, you're just going by ridiculous stereotypes. The overwhelming majority of gay people in society you can't even tell are gay unless they told you.

No, gender identity is a social construct. I've seen feminine straight men, so why would I care about masculine women? And once again, science has shown gay brains are wired more like the opposite sex, so it doesn't surprise me that some gay women exhibit more straight male type qualities.

Transsexuality has nothing to do with sexual orientation. Gender identity and sexuality are not the same thing. More evidence you have no clue what you're talking about. And no, it isn't disturbing. Gender Identity Disorder is an actual clinical disorder where in Utero, hormonal imbalances cause a fetus' brain to develop as one gender, and the body to develop as the other. As a result, a transsexual is constantly fighting to make their body match their brain. It's one of the most painful experiences any human can ever go through, and your lack of compassion and education on the matter is far more disturbing than any transsexual could dream to be.

Most people are uneducated and intolerant. Color me shocked that they find them weird.

Since you can't even figure out the difference between gender identity and sexual orientation, it's probably a good idea you don't have roommates. More so for the sake of your roommate.
