    I find it uplifting that the men I work with are so open to working with a gay men.

    Sure sometimes their jokes can be a little typical, but overall I work with men that can joke around, even when dirty humor is involved.
    Borderline flirting, some might say ;). And the men I work with are pretty attractive (a plus!)

    Its even remarkable that these men, once complete strangers, are so well accustomed and open to me that my own father and brother have
    cut ties because of my sexuality. I'm not the only homo in the world, and you'd think something as far as blood would be thicker
    than water, but I guess that goes to show that not everything can work out the way you'd like it to. Just a thought icon_smile.gif

    I'm sorry about your father and brother. I was lucky enough to have a supportive family. My guess is they are poisoned by religion, which is at the root of most of the evils in this world.

    Be strong my friend... With all the evil in the world. It always baffles how something as natural as homosexuality is, People would probably visit you in jail if you were a serial killer then if you told them you were gay. How screwed up we are as a society. It baffles me. I saw one of my good friends post on his face book," if you are gay please remove yourself from my facebook page" of course, he doesnt know about me. But that shocked a lot and really hurt me. someone I knew and cared for so much. It proves to you that people products of environment, they cant evven think for themselves anymore. Of course, i decided to delete my self from his facebook account but i am sure he is going to wonder why I did that. But oh well,

    All of the guys that I work with are straight. They are an awesome bunch of guys. There isn't any difference with us (gay or straight). They really like my partner. Our sexuality doesn't matter.

    College educated in a mostly blue collar, redneck environment - not so open here. You're lucky.

    I think its also funny..how me and my brother..who grew up around the same GAY uncle can no longer have a relationship because I'm gay. In perspective it doesnt make sense
    Both of us (my brother and I) have college education in our backgrounds...maybe its because he's a marine?

    Been there, cashed in my 401K and moved to a gay-friendly place.

    Now my life/job is like that of the OP's - hot straight guys who love to be around gay guys. icon_biggrin.gif

    ...and it's true: Blood is NOT thicker than water when it comes to sexuality.
    A non-accepting family member is nothing but a "natural born enemy" in my eyes. icon_wink.gif

    Confident straight men should have no problem whether you're gay, straight, bi, or Thai! Sure, they might joke a lot about the gay thing, but thats how guys are... as long as it doesnt cross the line to offensive. And I feel more comfortable being with straight buddies than even family sometimes.

    ...so long as you're not a SUPER-HOT gay (most aren't ala posters of this thread me included), i find that straight men are cool with it and have no issue...

    it's only when you're SUPER SEXY that their unconscious inner homo gets all hot and bothered and uncomfortable around you without knowing why and they start thinking you're doing something to them when you're not.

    I can certainly sympathize with you...I came from a very conservative religious upbringing...went to seminary ... the whole bit. When I quit the religion and came out my whole family ex-communicated me...including my twin brother which cut deeply to my soul. After so many years the would has healed...I have non blood friends that have truly become my family. I am blessed and loved and enjoying making new friendships...some that last for a season, reason or a life time.
