The Plutonic Male Friend?

    I was browsing around AskMen.com, attempting to find a remotely yet genuinely homosexual friendly article (which failed miserably, just incase your wondering). In my excavation... I found this article called "Why Women Love Gay Men". Be it no shocker, the author goes for all the typical stereotypes (fitness, fashion, and all around rainbowness).

    One commenter claimed: "gay male friends offers women a true shot at a platonic male friend."

    ... and so I pondered... What exactly counts as a platonic male friend to the gay male? Do I have any of them? (and) How many of them are actually my social peers (and not family members or older mentors, etc.)?

    All of this at 5:00am. Without the power of coffee. Nice.

    all my mates are male with just a few female "acquaintances"

    While they are all gorgeous (mentally at least for some of'em haha) they are mostly platonic, with some of them a few sexual things have happened but that isn't the way of think about them and it's usually just a one time thing sorta stuff and I've more mates where nothing has happened and I wouldn't want it too!

    Most women I know who have there head screwed on right are more then capable of having a relationship with a man that is purely platonic and nothing more, they just let them self get messy with it.

    mind you, l've more trouble having a platonic friendship with a gay guy hahaha

    wel, I think I've pretty much said nothing!

    Nearly all my platonic gay friends are "plutonic".

    ...It's like I'm from earth; they're from Pluto.

    Damn you, I step out for 5 minutes, and you beat me to it! LOL! Yes, this describes many of my "Plutonic" male friends. And all just non-bedroom friends, BTW, since I have a partner.

    Not sure many of them are platonic relationships, however, in the deeper intellectual sense of that word, merely non-sexual social. And that's fine, I have these RJ forums to satisfy my philosophical self-indulgences. LOL!

    lol, this topic is very funny, and to SineOfChange, DO NOT correct the topic title because it's perfect!

    All our buddies on here are platonic friends.
    All the people in our visceral life are platonic friends.

    The inhabitants of Pluto are our plutonic friends. *puts on tin-foil hat and waves at sky*
