Now, are either of you homosexuals?

John Winger:
You mean like flaming? Or part time?

Recruiter:
Well, it's a question we have to ask of all our new recruits.

Russell Ziskey:
No, we're not homosexual, but we are willing to learn.

The people that are around me truly enjoy me, they don't enjoy some bland vanilla creation that sets out only to please every single person it encounters. They then end up in abusive relationships with friends, lovers, bosses, and family and the cycle repeats and is passed on to the next generation. You want better things for your children, be they black, white, gay, strait, male, or female, do whatever it takes to raise them in a loving manner with 2 parents that show them affection and love. That's really all it takes. If they are loved and cared for by 2 parents they will be on a self confidence footing no matter their race, creed, sexual orientation, etc that will help them succeed in work, relationships, and parenting. If one person that is supposed to love them spends their whole childhood avoiding them then they will not have that same luxury. IMO this is the luxury of all luxury's that you can provide your children.

As for my wife she is becoming more and more confident as time progresses and she feels that security of being in a loving home and knowing nothing is changing when the going is tough, easy, or somewhere in between.
This resonates.

~30-40% of guys have some level of interest in guys. Doesn't mean they're into just ANY guy available, or that they would necessarily initiate. Just means that under exactly the right clinical conditions, they might dabble.

In my observation, "the right clinical conditions" tend to occur most frequently in the steamroom or at closing time at the bar.

I would even go so far as to say that for some of those guys it's more of a fetish than a gender thing. Like a VERY specific type of guy.

And then there's a handful of them (thankfully) who seem to get turned on by husky guys who remind them of their high school football coach...

Classic YMCA.

I accidentally went on a date with a guy I met in the shower. Should have known better...
