    I'll start:


    1. Once you find out a guy is straight, back off. You can - of course - still have a crush on him, but you should've "come on to" him. If you do, you could be instilling in him negative opinions of all homosexuals. icon_lol.gif

    2, Don't lie or cheat. It's a true mark of a man that can stand up and be honest. Even if it's not what the other person wants to hear.

    4. Don't get emotionally invested in a man who is closeted or not comfortable with his sexuality. It can often lead to a lot of grief.

    5. There's a difference to being a gay man and conforming to gay culture. You don't have to want to be a hairdresser, like fashion or cross-dress to be gay. All you have to be is be attracted to men. icon_wink.gif

    7. It's okay to play and act the bitchy queen, but don't actually be one, have a heart.

    8. Don't try to steal your friends boyfriends.

    9. Don't steal from your friends (or any one else for that matter)

    10. Just because you also prefer men, doesn't mean all women/other gay guys are your besties. 11. It's ok to be JUST friends with straight men. 12. I WILL cut you if you don't return my curling iron!

    12. Respect those who are more flamboyant/ less mainstream than yourself. They are often the ones on the "front lines" of battling prejudice and injustice.

    Glitter belongs on a 2nd grade art project with glue and uncooked macaroni... NOT all over your chest.

    9. Respect the older gay, lesbian, bi, and trans people, despite whether they are not handsome, muscular, cool, single, lonely, etc.

    They had it much more difficult than you, and created many open doors which you freely walk though without notice.

    10. Respect HIV+ people. Educate yourself, be supportive, not scared or ignorant.

    Thankfully, HIV is now treatable and manageable, and HIV+ people live full lives because of modern medicine. With medicine, HIV+ people can achieve an "undetectable" viral load, which can make them virtually non-infectious and unable to transmit the virus.

    But stigma and discrimination are still very real, especially within the gay community. Writing "clean" in your profile is offensive - it implies that HIV+ people are dirty.

    We have all seen scary pictures of the AIDS crisis, which originally hit gay people in western world the hardest. Those days are gone, but the older HIV+ people you see around you today are our war veterans and survivors. They went through hell, and live to tell about it. Respect.

    13. If you are HIV+, don't go around on a infecting spree. Others shouldn't be responsible for not protecting yourself.

    Stay away from married men. That includes gay married men. They always go home to wife/spouse. If you were in a committed relationship would you want your wife/husband/spouse to cheat on you? Show some respect for yourself and the second you find out he/she is married run for the hills!

    Decency, Dignity, Integrity, Loyalty & Respect...

    Keep those around who know the meaning of these very words & dismiss those who don't. There is nothing more sad than seeing someone who's gay & lacks these things. Learn to treat everyone the way you would want to be treated; grudges are a thing of the past, quit holding them because it does 2 things to you-- not only does it make you look ridiculous, it makes you sickicon_eek.gif

    gabriel88 said3. If a gay is not interested in dating men from a certain race, age, ethnicity or religion, that does not make him a bigot. It's called preferences.
    Yes, it does. No, it's not.


    But it's cool bigotry.

    If a black guy only dates whites but is not attracted to blacks, does that make him a racist?

    lol, that's funny. A lot of non-white dudes here do that and they never get called racist. icon_lol.gif They are preferences. You can hang out with everyone but not want to have sex with them.
