When gay friends needlessly panic - ever have to deal with them?

    My partner was just on the phone with a gay friend of ours who lives 1/2 mile away, finalizing arrangements for dinner with him and his partner tomorrow night (Thu). All of a sudden he yells at my husband that his own partner sees a plane crashing near us, and for us to take cover!

    I can indeed hear a loud propellor sound, so I run outside onto our patio. Passing directly overhead was one of the Goodyear blimps, which is hangered not far from here in South Florida. icon_eek.gif

    I returned and told my husband it's the blimp, not to worry. But he still got an argument over the telephone, that the other partner was convinced he saw a plane sliding sideways across the sky, and could hear its engines in distress.

    No, I assured him, its blimp shape was just lit up, as it is at night, and the slow-moving engines always sound like that. Mind you, the guy who was making this remarkable claim is a PhD. And I can do without this heart-stopping emergency when I'm chilling before bed. icon_rolleyes.gif

    I'm sometimes surprised how many guys I've known go into full gay panic mode for no good reason. Do you ever run into this, find it to be common or unusual? icon_confused.gif

    LMAO! Except the straight son is also panicking, along with his gay father and their gay Guatemalan "houseboi". In fact, before it's over, almost ALL the cast gets to panic at some point. One of our favorite movies. icon_biggrin.gif

    Why is this specifically about gay men? Other people panic sometimes too. icon_neutral.gif

    One of my all time favorite movies, SO much better than the French movie it is based on!

    The line "sweating like a farm animal" is part of my vocabulary.

    Most people do panic...each panic for different reasons...It's in our DNA
    In evolution perspective...Panic is very helpful for survival...it makes one alert & always keeps an eye open for any danger....

    Well if you are tired of friends being panic...let them dance all over the place...they will get tired sooner or later & calms down icon_smile.gif

    Most of the time I've had to deal with that, it has been female coworkers.

    I occasionally panic due to chronic, unrelenting stresses; or if my boyfriend sneaks up behind me. I need to take a pill and crash now. nite nite

    Because Mr. Deco is "making up for lost time" for all those decades he was in the closet, too ashamed to come out and admit he was in fact gay. So, everything in his life now is "gay" - he goes to a "gay bank," shops for eyeglasses at a "gay eyeglasses shop," goes to the "gay grocery store" and views everything through a "gay prism."

    His insecurity at not being considered a "true gay" has resulted in his overcompensating and sharing all details of his "gay life" as an "A+ list gay mover and shaker."

    Gay! Gay! Gay!

    * NOTE: All examples mentioned above are true. Mr Deco has posted them here over the years.


    I agree with SB (something you may never hear me say again)... this thread is idiotic... "gay panic mode"??? really?

    In my experience some people are happy being in a constant state of drama and always have a "problem." Because most people don't have lives anywhere near that exciting, you have to create drama where there is none.

    And that my friends, is a drama queen.

    Sorry , it came first as a play in 1973 as " la cage aux folles " , then as a Italian/French movie in 1978 , before the U.S remake was produced in 1996 . I had the chance to see the play while visiting family in France in 1974 , and it was 100 times better than the French or U.S movie !!

    Nope, the examples mentioned above are meant to support your lies. The truth, to which you seem highly allergic, and as I've stated here many times, is that I didn't know I was gay.

    I was never in the closet, never too ashamed to admit I'm gay. Because I didn't believe I was gay when younger, I honestly thought I was straight. But as soon as I realized I'm gay I came out in a single day. Not ashamed of anything.

    And yes, I immerse myself in the gay community in which I live. It's fun and I like it. Sorry you're so jealous, living... where exactly do you claim to be living? I know it can't be here in Wilton Manors, the "gay ghetto" you're always mocking, slamming not only me but all the gays who live here. A little bitter perhaps, or not gay yourself at all? Or are YOU the one who chooses to live in the closet, envious of those like me who don't?

    And if Gay! Gay! Gay! is out of place on a gay site, please explain your 1-note mantra of Repub! Repub! Repub! here. Accompanied by your obsessive stalking of me on this site, for a bit of variety perhaps.

    Yeah, I smile when I see it used in a thread here. Here used to provide a visual to what Harry seemed to suggest was a solution - let them run around in panic until they exhaust themselves and calm down.
