Yee gads...I bet that guy is from SC and I am heading that way tomorrow night!

YIKES!

Guess I will stay out of Wallyworld while there.

I'm not anti-social. I'm pro-solitude. Sleepy

I haven't read this thread, so this may be redundant. I ran across an interesting study yesterday.

There is a correlation between homophobia, and .. well look at this.

RE: Your experiences with homophobes-
I have zero experience both with homophobes and homosexuals. They're around, easy to recognize by their effeminate voice, (the gays I mean) but in our daily public life sexuality just doesn't matter. They need civil rights like anyone else. The world would be so much poorer, uglier and stupider without gays. Remember Charles Baudelaire, Allan Turing and half of the Renaissance artists.

So what's the deal about gay jokes? Typically the jokes make fun of gays who show off their (homo)sexuality, which some of them do and it is a thing of bad manners. Save it for the parade, dudes. I like jokes, including jokes about gays. I don't mean to hurt anyone, but some are just hilarious. For example,
A gay walks into the mosque full of praying Muslims.
He exclaims: "Oooh, is that a buffet for me?!"


As for racism, I have no experience with it. People here hate Gypsies because of their tribalism and primitive behavior, not color of their skin, gadzho mohre. But as far as I can tell, a Gypsy worker is socially acceptable and welcomed as a co-worker. And other more civilized minorities don't seem to be hated.

Nope! We all need to return to these times when men were True Men, women were True Women and little furry beings from Alpha Centauri were True Little Furry Beings from Alpha Centauri.

RE: Your experiences with homophobes-
There's nothing wrong with being uncomfortable when a homosexual hits on you. First of all, it can be uncomfortable when a heterosexual hits on you, especially if you're a guy who is used to advances going the other direction, or if you just plain don't go out much. Secondly, most people are naturally heterosexuals orientated towards the opposite sex - statistically you're looking at an uncommon situation, throw in the dissonance of being hit on by someone you have no comprehension of feeling the same way towards and you can't blame someone for being uncomfortable. One would hope you can take a pause and reason out a compliment from the situation, but it's natural to have a negative gut reaction when you get an unwanted advance from someone you find unattractive.

Reminder: Not all gay people are flamboyant or effeminate. That's a stereotype, and can be pretty rarely fulfilled. Gay guys are just like straight guys, except they are attracted to other guys instead of women. Some are more masculine than the norm, some are less. Heterosexual boys can be labeled as gay because they're more effeminate than other boys but still straight. That can be pretty confusing for a kid growing up. Especially when being gay is still looked at as a bad thing in many places in the world.

Sure. I didn't see any *in your face* gays, except one on Youtube. I know how bad it is at school to be different in any way. Kids are like wolves, hunting down all anomalies. I just say that voice allows us to make an accurate guess about people.

For example, my voice is relatively toneless, emotionally flat, which is typical for Asperger's. (unless I make effort to sound normal) Similarly, a gay voice may have a typical "effeminate" accent. I think that somewhere I saw a study, they measured how reliably can an audience detect gay men by hearing short voice samples, which is 75%. Also, there seems to be an above average chance to distinguish a gay by face. It works even in 50 miliseconds, which suggests that there is evolution behind it.

Really? I say this mainly as people have said they can't figure out what my sexuality is... they're not certain by voice (although some say "he's straight" some say "he's gay" some say "what does it matter?!?"--literally to the last, lol). Although from an experiment I ran a few years ago (didn't officially do anything as it involved self-reporting).... let's just say dating sites are not that.... accurate for who's straight/bi/gay based on self reporting.... let's just say there's a number of "straight" men who have and love sex with other men.
