    I saw only the thread title and figured the answer would be "pop a boner."

    I certainly not going to hug no straight guy, unless I am attracted to him and he his thinking of making the switch. I just don't hug people unless I am at least attracted to them.

    The straight woman crossing herself was funny. And I thought BOTH guys seemed gay, in the case of the couple where the heavier guy on the left had the horizontal striped shirt and the other guy dressed in black was slender.

    I don't think the point was whether a homophobe and gay would normally hug (they actually called them "mildly homophobic", whatever that is). But rather how they would react if outside forces required them to hug, knowing who the other one was. And perhaps these were staged simulations, not authentic reactions.

    And where might hugging of that sort happen in real life? Maybe at a time of grief or difficulty, perhaps at a funeral. Or for the opposite emotions, when the team you both support just won the game, or he excitedly tells you his wife just gave birth to a baby. I've hugged straights in all those situations, and wasn't concerned if they weren't gay friendly, nor they that I'm gay, they were taking hugs from everyone.

    Why would they have to? No one is forced to hug anymore; that would not be Politically Correct!

    Pondering......how many leftist here would struggle to give a conservative a sincere hug, and accept them as they demand to be accepted?

    Demand? Maybe that would be the problem. Acceptance is a 2-way street.

    And BTW, I'm not aware many of us are "leftist" here. Liberals, perhaps, but few leftists.

    but one can understand why you would want to remove yourself from the term leftist, as it has become such a dirty word, for all the damage they have done. Now they want to stand under banners like progressive, and liberal to distance themselves from the damage the left have done.

    Anyhow mate, back to the Vid, and topic. How many progressive liberal leftist here at RJ could show Conservatives the kind of loving acceptance that this Vid promotes? As I have seen conservatives and Conservative liberals here at RJ show a caring respect to the left here that I have not seen returned.

    You may have rarely SEEN it, but I don't see YOU demonstrating it in this thread. Nor do those who routinely come here to call us "liberal hens", "libtards", "socialists" and similar. Go back to the top and try again. icon_razz.gif

    But sir one is not a homophobic, and never have been! Having been out from a very young age in the 1960s, when so many grown men said noting and hid away.

    But one also recall's it was the leftist who started the abuse full attacks, of so many conservatives here of, liberal conservatives and conservatives. But that also does not take away the truthful fact that we have seen Conservatives show you leftist a kindness that you have not been able to return; just as one has shown kind in this thread sir; and have a great day.

    With sexuality being innate for us homosexuals and heterosexuals, people just don't go pow and suddenly go gay, or straight. They may suddenly be truthful to themselves, and others that may give the pow effect of going poof and suddenly being gay. Due to a change in circumstance, parents dead, no longer in a job that forbade homosexuality, or they fall in love with a person of the same sex for the first time; and then you have the topic of bisexuality, who can seem to be homophobic, because of issues of deep feelings of self loathing, and make homosexuality look like a choice.

    But this is starting to go way of topic and is a topic of it's very own. Just as homophob's are not all of the same colour, race, or political leanings. We don't all belong under the one banner either; thus belonging to different tribes, as much as some want to shove us all into the one tent of gay, and say: oh my look how many we are.

    Homophobes probably get a hard-on when they hug a gay guy. When it comes to loud, obsessive, abusive homophobes, logic dictates there is no way a truly hetero guy is going to spend THAT MUCH time & emotional energy stressing out over another guy's sex life. No way, no how, no chance. REAL straight guys may find it personally unappealing, but they really don't give a shit about it one way or the other and simply don't care.

    What's that old saying about raging, outspoken homophobes? The squeaky wheel WANTS to get greased.

    Even if this happened to not be staged and they were homophobes in reality, chances are they've hugged gay people many times before this video without knowing.

    Next time you meet a homophobe and give them a hug, don't let them know you're gay until after the hug. Tell them the horrendous sin they've just committed by hugging a gay, then proceed to laugh at them when telling them that you've just passed the gay to them. icon_twisted.gif
