Is it just me or does it seem like a lot more guys are desperately posting in this section. It may just be my cynical outlook on the world caused by my low success rate with women or maybe not. Someone told me that geeks tend to be gay, of course maybe this was just his way of hinting something at me. link. Well im sort of rambling on here, uh we have any masochists in the house, besides sconzey....just curious. Maybe I should have put this in the random thread. *thinks about it, stops thinking, and pushes the button*

I only met... two gay geeks in the time I have spent around geeky people. That article is pop-psych bull[shavingcream]. Okay, the reason that the companies are in "gay" cities is because they have three things in common that draw both groups: they're old and established; they are culturally diverse; and they have an established upper-middle class, a,k,a, investment money. They also are art centers, financial centers, cultural centers, and educational centers. They encourage different thinking. When I think Minnesota, I don't think "different". I think large Swedish population. And lakes. Lots of lakes.

Anyway, they're all moving to Texas and India, and I don't recall those places being big gay centers. My proof: look at India's population. As for Texas, it's got a reputation for hurting gay people.

Um, just because someone TELLS you you're gay doesn't MAKE you gay.

Here's what I consider to be the Clincher:

Are you sexually aroused by men? Close your eyes, and imagine twenty years from now being in a happy long-term relationship -- everything you've ever idealized. Is the person you're with the same sex or opposite sex? (Spungo, don't Answer!)

Ask any gay person -- if it were as easy to be straight as being told one is, don't you think they'd pass on the heartache, emotional anguish, and self-denial? The gay people I knew would have. However, they also realized that it was who they were: no right, no wrong. They feel the same way about people of their same gender as heterosexual people feel about people of the opposite sex.

So, I ask you, again -- when you think sexually arousing and emotionally entreating, do you think man or woman?

And then, ask yourself, Am I a Geek?

As stupid as what I'm about to write is, "Labels are for jars of pickles. I'm a person."

I know only one geek who could potentially be gay... There is much debate on this matter, some say he is bi, some completely gay, some only bi-curious...

IMOHO he is straight and is either:
a) Playing gay because its fun to see people's reactions.
b) Considering uhhh 'other paths'... Not bi-curious yet, but thinking about it.

People say I'm gay, so you're not alone... [Wink] I assume its either an insult or wishful thinking on their part... [Razz]

No, I am not a masochist... I just enjoy coding in perl... Is there anything wrong with that? [Wink]

well, moi is a bisexual sadist...

but then again, i'm also a girl, so i guess that doesn't help your problem/question much?

i also don't think that more guys have been posting about loveness that the girls, just that they are catching up and its getting pretty much equal.

a friend of mine is into the theatre buisness and she has a lot of (male) gay friends. They are open about the stuff that they do and for a little while i doubted myself because i enjoyed their company so much. i tried something and found out real fast that i was VERY STRAIGHT. It is not something that we dont talk about but they all know that i am straight and i dont even catch the slight of eye that they may give other men and that is out of pure respect. I respect them and they respect me. but because of the way that i dress, at a first glance one might consider me to be gay. Im no metro-sexual but i do care about how i look.

I guess what i am trying to say is dont knock it till you've tried it and if your sure your straight/gay you still need to respect the other. We are all people and we all deserve respect for who we are.

You have to be able to spell policy, before you can have one, homophobe.

That shouldn't be an issue, most gay people prefer guys who have at least a moderate level of education and communication skills.

That explains why you are writing in all 'lower case'.
