If you hang out with gays to much, you might turn gay yourself.

    I think some people are truly brainless if they think that they will turn gay if they hang out with too many gays or go to gay clubs. What is this fear of having gay friends, and partaking in non-sexual activities with gay friends?

    I think the only risk would be if the person was a homosexual and didn't know it, they might realize who they are if they are exposed to that environment too much.

    most homosexuals state they "know" from quite an early age. This would suggest that environment is irrelevant.
    Exposure of a male to homosexuals may lead to sexual experimentation at the most in my view.

    Thanks. That's no question for me. I could never fathom being a homosexual even if I tried to intentionally. I meet people all the time, that would not associate with a homosexual. Much of it has to do with social proof. They do not do it because they think the peopleare bad. The reason they would not associate with gays is because they have a strong fear of what others might think of them.

    I have a few guy friends. I'm not gay. Never will be.
    Chemical balance determined that prior to birth.
    It's mainly fundies and other such morons who spout that "if you hang out with gays, you're gay!" bullcrap.

    Wait...who actually thinks this? Homosexuality is quite obviously not something to be "caught".

    Lots of people think this. There are lots of people that do not associate with others for superficial reasons. With regards to gays, there are many that do not associate with gays, and some that do, but still have some kind of fear that they will turn gay if they hang around gays too much.

    It's pretty ridiculous for people to think you would become gay. That is saying that they are not in control of their own actions. That is just an excuse for guys that are gay in heart maybe and are total homophobes so they can be around their friends.

    I think if you have any serious suspicions that you will become gay via hanging out with gays...you probably have homoerotic tendencies already. Either that, or you're a complete moron, as stated above.

    Most gay men I've ever met want to screw me, and have told me such in no uncertain terms. They claim I'm gorgeous, go figure.

    No, it's not that they think they'll turn gay, but that they'll be THOUGHT to be gay by others. In some circles, that's almost as "bad" as being gay!

    Well, go gays hang out with "rednecks"? Do regular folks hang out with drug addicts and alcoholics? Do avid liberals hang out with avid conservatives? Do extremist Muslims hang out with extremist Christians? Do right-wingers hang out with left-wingers?

    See? It ain't hate or fear, it's perfectly normals to seek to be/hang out with those who we're most alike. Hence the reason that segragationalism is an ideal for humans!

    PS - but don't let a gay sneeze on ya' .....oooh, that's like instand fairy powder! ...LOL!

    OK I'm assuming you're not messing, so how did this make you feel?
    Disgusted or flattered?

    Let me rephrase the question slightly:
    (to all straight guys) if you went out with a group of your mates, and a gay guy hit on one of your mates would you feel jealous, in the same was as if a woman had noticed your mate and not you?

    One slight tangent, one thing that does annoy me is how gays within popular culture have seemed to have "hijacked" supposedly good qualities and made them exclusively "gay"
    ie: if a guy dresses well, takes pride in his appearance, speaks well, or is not afraid to show emotion etc etc he is deemed to "be gay"

    I've had personal expereience of this. I once met up with a female friend of mine for coffee, and her best friend turned up too. Anyway a few days later my friend tell me her mate thought I was gay, after much expression af displeasure from me my friend "informed" me that this was actually a compliment.

    since when did gays get exclusive rights on the good traits?!!

    bloody urban myths
