So tired of straight men...

and their completely insecure attitudes. I don't know why you people worship them so much. My two best friends' and sister's husbands are pretty cool, but most others are insecure little babies. I live in a liberal hippie west coast city, and am pretty outgoing. I don't limit myself to gay bars and enjoy a variety of activities. I love hanging out with straight girls and gays/lesbians. I'm not even effeminate or stereotype and can talk about sports and cars... But straight guys--even the ones who are progressive and pro-gay on paper--always seem to be just a little creeped out. They seem very uncomfortable at the occasional drag show, if we're at a bar and I'm peeing at the urinal, they will always come in and use the stall as if I'm going to grope them then and there, and if their girlfriends get up to go to the bathroom or whatever and they're left alone with me, they look extremely uneasy. I'm friends with a lot of girls at work and have met the office straight guys' girlfriends at parties. The straight girls from work AND EVEN THE GIRLFRIENDS OF THE GUYS (whom I don't even know very well) all friend request me on Facebook. The straight guys never ever do. One did, but when I posted a prop 8 message one day he unfriended me. I'm also always seeing photos of parties thrown by these guys and there are all these coworkers there. I'm never invited. I will go ahead and get the snarky replies under control. I'm not uber effeminate (but I'm not going to pretend to be uber butch either), I am partnered and do NOT ogle the straight guys (most of them are not that attractive anyway), and I'm not gross or annoying or anything like that. People at work generally like me and everyone BUT the straight guys are very friendly with me. Why are they so damn insecure? Are that many of them so terrified that befriending a gay man will make them look gay? It's so stupid.
