Straight people who don't mind gays of opposite sex

By that, I mean straight women who love gay men (don't like lesbians); straight guys who like lesbians (hate gay men).

There are quite a few young women in my office who love the gay guys in the office (and in general), but they give the cold shoulder to the one lesbian in the whole building. I know that sucks, because I hate straight guys who do the opposite. This is a selective form of homophobia? Do you know people like this?

Aren't you talking about straight people who hate gay people of the same sex? Your headline is worded very strangely.

Do I know people like this?

Yes, of course. 95% of straight people are like this. Straight men know that men are dogs and that's why they avoid gay men. They don't want the same kind of attention they direct towards women directed towards them. Straight women like male attention, even if it's from gay men and that's why they don't pay attention to lesbians.

Yes R1, same idea.

Yeah, I know one like that. Totally fancinated with gay men, really some cartoon idea of gay men. But hates lesbians. Kind of hates women in general, I think.

[quote]Its easy to be friends with someone, when sex is ruled out.

Exactly. Take the sex out of the equation and it's all good. You can't really open up to someone when you're afraid they're going to misconstrue everything you say or do. And you really don't want them hitting on you.

Maya Angelou has had a terrible history with men. If I remember correctly what led to Maya getting pregnant with her son is that she thought she might be a lesbian and was eager to prove she wasn't. Hmm...

My parents. My Dad is freaked out by his gay brother but doesn't care if his daughter's a lesbian. My mom loves my gay uncle and "the gays" in long as they're men. To her credit, she loves me no matter what, but she has a very narrow idea of what women are supposed to look/act like and can get really nasty when she sees women who don't measure up. In her mind, all lesbians are "masculine" and thus don't make the cut. I think deep down she feels she doesn't "measure up" and so projects her insecurity out. I think she's nonplussed by her androgynous daughter, but she's trying.

"Maya Angelou disparaged the lesbian hookers she worked with as a young woman"

I thought she had a PhD??

R20. I believe that Dr.-Maya-Angelou-Thing has some kind of honorary doctorate which everyone knows does NOT entitle you to be addressed as doctor!

There are women who love watching gay porn. But straight men loving lesbian porn is almost universal. You can't say the same about women into gay porn though. It's way way lower.

Have any of the straight females here who enjoy watching guy on guy porn ever fantasized about their boyfriends/husbands with other men? I know many straight men say they'd like to see their women do girl on girl action, just wondering if the same applies for straight women.

Every straight woman I know of who enjoys gay porn says it weirds her out to think of her own boyfriend/husband having sex with another man. Sorry, r28!

Yes, like way way way way way way way lower.

The idea that straight women in general love guy on guy porn as much as straight men love girl on girl porn is ludicrous. It's a novelty for a few (confused) women.

[2] Mostly guys who are still in highschoo/college, or dimwitted redneck types are prone to that kind of behaviour. I used to avoid socialising with straight guys at work (I'm somewhat socially phobic) and they all reacted negatively to that, they would ask me if something was wrong or if I was mad at them.

I was talking sometime back with a lesbian friend who has a gay cousin. My friend says that most of the other male relatives are more accepting of her than her cousin.

I have had a large number of straight women who don't seem to mind me.
