    I've had a few friends who were Republicans. It's never been an issue with me, or rather I just don't discuss ANY form of politics and we're OK.

    I met this guy awhile ago, saw him recently. Had a real good time. We'd been talking more and he made some comment about "Obamacare" that was derogatory. I had just said my health insurance was going from $1100 a month to $450. obviously not a problem, and he wasn't listening in that light.

    I have a ummmm video to preview with him that we made.

    I just realized I've been fucking a Republican! Never even dated one before. I don't think I can do it.

    A Rockefeller Republican would be fine, since they are pretty sensible.

    They are quite scarce today, most are either Independents or Democrats now.

    Fuck no. Any gay man (any man regardless of sexuality, actually) who chooses to identify with the modern Republican Party is out of it.

    It would be a problem for me if he was devoted to watching bullshit like Faux News, and if he constantly spouted all the lies and nonsense he got from those fools.

    I wonder what the reaction would be if someone asked conservatives if they would date a liberal...

    What's that, there's more than one gay conservative in the entire world of 6 billion people?!? icon_eek.gif

    Not likely.

    I only date people who display compassion and egalitarian attitudes.

    Doesn't sound like you do either icon_wink.gif

    Personally who cares what your politics are. You can be a Republican and support Democrats and vice versa. It really matters on how they treat people and their social beliefs.

    Many Civilian Republicans believe in gay marriage and other social liberties. It's the people who actually run, they are the intolerant freaks.

    And there are Democrats who hate homosexuals as well.

    I mostly agree with this, except for the "it's the people who actually run, they are the intolerant freaks" part. A substantial portion of the Republican/Conservative party has to be intolerant to vote for so many intolerant people.

    Plus, all of the gay conservatives I've ever met and known are incredibly obsessive about their politics and have a victim mentality about it.

    For NSA sex, yeah. For anything meaningful and long term? No.

    If someone's personal values are that they don't care about society having a role in looking out for the neediest among us, then I don't think I could date them. Our values would be too far apart.

    I know that there are SOME Republicans who may honestly (though in my view mistakenly) believe that getting rid of "Big Government" and defunding social welfare programs will ultimately lead to a healthy economy for everyone including the neediest among us. I could theoretically deal with dating someone who was that sort of a Republican. But as for the ones who are Republican simply because they're selfish and don't care about issues of poverty and social welfare -- no way....

    Of course, the Republican party today has veered so far to the right that neither Eisenhower, nor Nixon nor Reagan would ever get very far because they'd all be considered too leftist....

    If he weren't a pathological liar, he might have a chance.

    Well put, I totally agree with you.

    I have no problem at all dating someone with different political beliefs than me. It would only be a problem if they were very forceful about their beliefs and didn't respect mine.

    In fact, I just went out with a guy who leaned right-wing and he was a really awesome guy. I'm crossing my fingers that I'll score another date with him! icon_biggrin.gif

    This. It's the constant whining about how attacked and unpopular they are that would be the problem. Their politics are irrelevant, love is thicker than water.
