Unless it was somebody I already knew, not bloody likely.

The men are mostly paranoid homophobes convinced you won't be able to keep from raping them in the middle of the night, and the women treat you like a personal eunuch they can take shopping or enlist to do their hair and make-up.

no tonthe first part, and to the second part- it seems to be prevalent among a certain age group of women that it's just fine to treat gay men like a personal consultant or something... just an observation.

Oh gosh.

My three roommates are straight. One of them is a best friend of mine.

I think everyone is looking WAY too into this.

I really don't believe that a sexual preference defines wether you are a good, and decent person, and that's who I'd want for a room-mate.

When I was in my twenties I had a straight roommate and we got along just fine. He brought home a few new girls every week. I later found out he was married the whole time. lol

Wow, I never intended my thread to turn into a flame war (no pun intended).
