    It's amazing all the gay men that buy Dogs because they can't handle any kind of relationship with another human.

    Of course, the dogs always would be best friends than human; the dogs never will betray you, the human everytime.

    If you think gay guys buy dogs because they can't handle people, I suggest you understand neither people nor dogs. How sad. I will say I couldn't be attracted to any guy who doesn't love dogs.

    Interesting premise.
    So, why do straight guys buy dogs?
    Silly monkey.

    I wanted a dog since I was old enough to have my own place and buy one, but had put off getting one until after I was in a long term relationship, because I was fearful that a dog's companionship will make me less motivated to get back into the relationship game and that I'll turn into a cat-lady icon_lol.gif

    Of my LTR's, I've had a two-year relationship back in university and two 10-year relationships since, the later, longer two ending each in death. So neither by my choice, doing nor planning. All of us had dogs. I'm not real into cat people; they make me sneeze: the cats, not the people.

    My str8 brother and his family (wife & three kids) generally have two dogs at a time as they do currently.

    Does that make them twice as gay as me? What of their horses? What's that mean? Supergay?

    Getting them ready for the hurricane (the horses, not their kids) was so much work that we had to cancel our holiday get-together over the weekend.

    I don't know if I'd completely avoid someone who isn't into pets, but I'm more comfortable with people who relate better to all of life.

    I'm gonna go pet my pet elephunt now.

    I will agree that having a dog makes you less needy of other companionship but I don't think that's a bad thing at all; The more fulfilled you are as a person, especially one who has learned to care for and nurture others, the better you will be at relationships with a partner. Not always because having a dog is hierarchal and a good relationship has to be 50/50 (or 75/75 as I like to say). But it gets you out of yourself and makes you more responsible. When I was single I was sometimes sorry to not be able to go directly from work to something with friends but I had responsibilities at home. If I wanted to take off for a weekend I had to make arrangements for the dog. Etc. But it taught me to love and accept love and shoulder obligations. Forever. Most of my dogs have lived for 16 years or longer. One was in a wheelchair at the end. All have been inconveniently expensive at just the wrong time. I've had seven since college. Sometimes just one but usually two and three for a while. All about 60-75 lbs, English Setters all but one, an Irish Setter. That's a lot of dog! The current two I got after my partner and I were together so they're now "ours," not mine. And I find I like that.

    They way you go off the deep end and spew your venom toward other people here (over some of the most trivial matters, I might add) I would NEVER have guessed you to be a "fulfilled" person. Quite the opposite, actually.

    My venomous reactions are only to people who say disgusting things or are paid by someone to spread lies. Like you. Example, this thread. Nice conversation and you jump in with your usual ugly. No reason. Just to be ugly. You are good at ugly and I'm sure it's because you practice a lot. You do that in pretty much every thread. My comments are usually supportive of relationships and positive except I have no patience with Breitbard/FOX/Dredge conspiracy theory promulgators. Or self-appointed queens. I don't live with people like you at the lowest common denominator.

    Odd. I've noticed the opposite. I find that people who have dogs tend to be quite loving in general.

    Lemme guess: because they are really gay and "can't handle any kind of relationship with another human" - let alone women?

    The OP starts a thread to dismantle human beings (or more specifically "gay men") who own dogs by making some sweeping generalization that they're dysfunctional and I'm the one who's ugly? You truly are ludicrous. It's as if you willfully turn a blind eye when some self-loathing homosexual spouts off some garbage. But then again, coming from you I shouldn't be surprised.

    Just remember, from one independent (me) to a rabid modern progressive liberal (you), you're not better than me or more enlightened than me simply for being a liberal. Just because you have different viewpoints than me doesn't entitle you to spew expletive after expletive at me without making yourself look asininely foolish. It clearly demonstrates you have no self control. You justify your behavior when you read "disgusting things" on here. Your toilet mouth is what's disgusting.

    I am better than you. And more enlightened. You're crazy. We're talking dogs here. You're seriously sick. Find a therapist and stop trying to infect others with your bile.

    A dog humanized by its owner will more often than not be very aggressive toward other dogs. Also, people who humanize their pets more often than not forget that they are the ones in charge. It's not an equal relationship.

    Not really sure how a dog would know that it's human is humanizing them or how that would lead to aggression toward other dogs.

    In my family, it's the other way around. I'm one of the dogs. icon_smile.gif

    Gay men love pets because we are naturally givers, and overflow with empathy in many situations. At times too much for own good, I think. But it's what we do.

    Contradictorily, we also bitch & criticize worse than anybody. It's one of my own "tells" I missed before I came out. Because I was already doing it, along with demonstrating a lot of other gay traits, before I realized I was gay myself. Suggesting that common gay traits aren't learned socially, they originate spontaneously from within us.

    And one of them is a love for pets. It's really a kind of joke.

    Disagree inasmuch as we all have different "traits" within us. Those that blossom are the ones we feed, individually or as a community.
    It's not like there is a "bitchy" gene that tends to be transmitted more with the "gay gene".

    I'm tempted to generalize and posit that minorities in general have more to bitch about and that minority communities encourage bitching in order to challenge the status quo: "it's not ok that we have to sit in the back of the bus or can't get married, speak out!"

    Yes, we were talking about dogs here and then as you continued to attack me you had to bring irrelevant topics into the discussion such as politics and FOX news. So I would suggest that you learn to keep on topic and resist your red herring and straw man tactics as you foolishly and fallaciously attempt to dismantle me. The only thing you're better at than me is being judgmental and being very irrational.

    I bet you're trying so hard to resist your intrinsic urge to hurl your usual toilet mouth expletives at me aren't ya? icon_cool.gif

    Ya, cause you're a fucking asshole. I was nicely talking about dogs and you decided to insult me. You're a fucking moron.

    Here we have a thread about gay men enriching their lives by nurturing and bonding with dogs. And it turns into a hatefest. How typical and sad.

    By the way, you've been spreading lies about me through false attribution; a logical fallacy where you fling your irrelevant untruths at me during your usual tantrums. You have associated me with Fox News and conspiracy theories. The only thing I've ever said on this site about your beloved queen Hillary was that she was full of shit. I have never regurgitated anything from any other source like Fox News. The last time I watched Fox TV was when the X-Files used to be on that station back in the 1990's. There are plenty of videos on youtube of Hillary saying one thing and being caught telling a lie or she changed her mind.

    One can only conclude that due to your ongoing emotional tirades on the site you're obviously incapable of keeping track of everyone you feel entitled to attack. Get your facts straight. Or better yet, forget facts. From you that's asking too much. Simply stick to your usual name calling and profanities. It's pretty much all you're good for. Know thyself, know thy limits.

    Then explain to me, dip-shit, why you attacked me in a thread about dogs. Your first post in the thread was to attack the poster personally because he is having trouble relating to people, and then me personally because I said dogs make men better. You're a hate filled, jealous, small person. And you, are scum. And brought politics into this thread, not me. Fuck off.

    So again you can't answer the simple question. Why did you attack me personally for telling the OP that dogs can make people happy? Huh? Keep posting your political memes and pretend that you're not living in your Breitbart/FOX/Drudge alt-universe. Disgusting. People like you are why the site is diminishing.

    LOL. Let's see. In this thread alone you've called me "crazy", " a fucking moron", "a fucking asshole", "a dipshit", "scum", "disgusting", told me to fuck off, flat out said you were better than me along with much more all because I said this:

    "They way you go off the deep end and spew your venom toward other people here (over some of the most trivial matters, I might add) I would NEVER have guessed you to be a "fulfilled" person. Quite the opposite, actually."

    I proved my point. You go off the deep end over the most trivial matters. Apparently I invaded your "personal space" by making an innocuous observation about your usual behavior in the threads. Now here you are playing the victim while simultaneously vilifying me. All this and you have the audacity to infer I'm unintelligent. You are unbelievable.

    Boy, you and your fellow deplorables are so predictable. Answer the question. Why? You disgustings do it in every thread. Personally attack someone for no reason. I answered a thread advocating for dogs and you personally attacked me for no reason. You can't answer because you have no answer except to admit you're exactly what I called you IN RESPONSE. Disgusting. Inferior. Worthless.
