I love hanging out with my gays, I always have fun with them and feel very accepted as a friend. However, it’s no secret that I am still squeamish about gay male sex. I am still awkward and uncomfortable with the “sex” part of homosexuality. But that’s just a personal preference.
Some people are bothered by any sexual display. Some are uncomfortable with seeing mothers nurse babies in public. We all have triggers that no amount of political correctness can dissuade. Does it keep me from hanging out with my gay friends? No. Does it lead to some awkward moments? Yes. But that’s where common decency, empathy, and respect come into play.
When in Rome, I can’t really expect the Romans to speak Japanese just for me. But I am glad I have friends who are as tolerant of me, as I am of them.
In response to the article:
“I’ve got no problem with gays marrying or adopting, just the public affection. I don’t need to see that.” Really?
