    I've mentioned this anecdote before, from a Boca Raton cocktail party. A college-educated woman asked me: "How long does it take before a gay person develops AIDS?" icon_eek.gif

    Not meant to be funny in mentioning it here. Some of these questions demonstrate an appalling ignorance regarding gays.

    Pretty funny, the sad part is, you really do get some of those questions. My partner would always give a cold stare and there weren't any more questions...haha

    That dog in the BBQ scene stole the show.

    It's sad, that this actually does happen. Some of these brought cringe-worthy memories back....

    Except these questions aren't that weird as the majority of gay guys that straight people know of fit many of these stereotypical questions.

    Let's fight ignorance on homosexuality, with ignorance of ignorant people.

    Fucking dumb video, and even dumber people who are offended by those questions.

    I think one of the most remarkably offensive and ignorant comments ever said to me directly....was from a co-worker at a party. This was in the early 2000's.
    When she first over-heard that I was gay, she said very honestly, that she didn't believe I was gay because I didn't take that "medication cocktail" that all HIV+ men take... I was so shocked and completely caught off-guard...I left the party. Apparently, one of my other co-workers that witnessed this, must have said something after I left...I was apologized to repeatedly the next few days by everyone at the party for the stupid shit she said.... but she never said another word to me for the next 4 years I was there....icon_rolleyes.gif

    Best to answer those questions with questions: "You know, I often wonder about things like that myself. . . Like, did you and your wife have sex this morning? What's her favorite position? Do you ever let her get on top? About how often would you say you get some? Do you ever get bored with it? Are you getting any on the side? Do you have to use a pill to keep it up? Gosh, I have so many questions, I don't know where to start. . . Maybe we can get back to this later--you know, when there're aren't so many people around. That's just the tip of the iceberg and some of this stuff, you can't just blurt out in a crowded room. After all, I wouldn't want to say anything that would make you feel uncomfortable. . ."

    I loved the blank or shocked responses of the gay couple. And the one guy sometimes ready to attack, while the other puts his hand on him, like a "Down boy, down!" gesture.

    In the case of the AIDS question I got above ("How long does it take before a gay person develops AIDS?"), I just smiled, and calmly said: "Never, if you don't have unsafe sex. It's not a spontaneous disease. Nor is it easily contagious, it requires a direct exchange of body fluids from an infected person. I don't expect to ever contract it myself."

    MuchMoreThanMuscle saidThis format of video is becoming a cliché on youtube.


    Maybe but it is still fun. I ended up watching 10 of those videos in a row.

    Well, you can imagine how off-balance that made me for a moment. I'm sitting having a cocktail at a sumptuous private home, with serving staff and all the mega-rich extravagance you see in movies, before being called in to dinner. And afterwards we'll be entertained by classical musicians and singers. Not that this is my own "normal" but for some reason I get invited to this stuff. I've got another one on the 31st I'm dreading.

    And there's a certain social protocol to these functions. The topics are kept all banal & benign, little of controversy to disturb the tranquility. So that getting slammed with that extremely rude question kinda violated the rules.

    But another rule is that you smile, and take the hit. Which is what I did. And tried to reply seriously with grace & politeness.

    More important & disturbing is that anybody with presumed intelligence and exposure to the world would actually harbor such a thought today. The ignorance about gays remains rampant in the US, and there are political & religious interests that want to keep it that way.

    I have never been asked these questions, but again people are shocked when I tell them I am gay, maybe that's why. I think their life is more entertaining...

    Well isn't this all just too, too nice! What an image. You / the consummate braggart, sitting on your ass down in Florida, camping out in that morbidly obese, poor old man's little condo, pretending to be gay, while your wife and sons wonder where the Hell you are, and when / if they'll ever see a penny of all that back alimony and child support you skipped out on. Niiiice going there, Arty. What a man. Sire those boys, and then skip out on them, all the while bragging away about all your partying and spending habits, and tee-hee-heeing to your readers that your wife and sons can't locate you. You'd better be careful, Pops. They just might get told where to find you there in Wilton Manors. Even though nothing's in your name, they can still find you through your driver's license. Watch out now!

    Protocol, shmotocol. Seeing you at ANY function would be a gross breach of protocol, and reason for me to up and leave ASAP. But then, I don't think we'd exactly move in the same circles were I living near where you stay.

    You become even more ridiculous with each succeeding - but ultimately failing - post.

    When my older sister found out I was gay, she began speaking to me in a different way. Instead of asking her usual question "how are you doing?" she started asking "how are you feeling?" It was obviously her way of asking if I had AIDS. I let it slide the first couple of times but then I eventually went off on her but of course she denied that being her reasoning.
