  • No, it wouldn't bother me in the least. I'm bi, so to be against it would be stupid. Even if I wasn't, I'm still toleant of different ways of life- for the most part.
  • I have gay friends, transvestite friends and transexual friends. The key word here is friend. I dont judge someones preferences in life when it comes to sexual gender. My friends are my friends because we share a mutual respect and caring for one another.
  • Unless I'm looking for a friend with benefits, I would not be interested in their sexual preference. What possible difference would it make in the kind of friend they are??
  • most of my friends are gay, transgender, transsexuals, you name it. i love them and think they are so amazing and courageous. living in a society that rejects who you are so hard and to see them breaking free is truly amazing. if anything i feel proud to be in such company.
  • It would not bother me.
  • Not at all. One of my closest friends "came out" and nothing changed about the way we regard each other afterwards. Sadly he moved to another country, haven't seen him in quite a while now.
  • NO it would not change anything ( it did not change anything) my best friend through highschool was and is and I didn t find out untill after school but we stayed friends
  • NO it would not change anything ( it did not change anything) my best friend through highschool was and is and I didn t find out untill after school but we stayed friends
  • My 3 best friends are lesbos. I love them to death. It doesn't matter if they are gay, they are my girls. They tease me & my husband when they come over & grab my ass or something or sit on my lap and grab a boob. It's all in fun though. My husband thinks they are hilarious. Someone's sexual preference should not matter. It is the actual person that makes them friend-worthy.
  • As long as he never tried anything with me, and didn't show that he wanted more than friendship, then I'd be totally cool with it. It might even give me some sort of street cred as being all tolerant and nice and stuff. ;-) I wouldn't even have a problem if he wanted to tell me about his love life, even graphically, as long as I can talk about my girls with him. Between the two of us, we could sexually conquer both genders!!!
  • It wouldn't change anything. They would still be the same person and I would love them just as I always did.
  • Not in any way. I do not mind homosexuals, neither do I judge them. They are my friends, and their sexuality would not change that.
  • Wouldn't bother me in the slightest whatever sexuality they are...
  • No and i'm sure it wouldn't bother her if i was straight.
  • It would only bother me if there were feeling that were not mutual, similar to if one of my female friends being a little too fond of me.
  • It wouldnt bother me :)I would not look for a new friend,i value my friendships i have and i wouldnt want to lose a good friend over somethink that i think is trivial
  • I think the real problem is that when your best friend comes "out" to you it is because they are attracted to you. They have reached a level of comfort with you that they are willing to tell you everything. In a male female relationship that kind of comfort could lead to more than just friendship. In fact, when my friend came out to me it was for exactly the purpose of telling me that he was attracted to me, otherwise he would have kept it to himself.
  • No..my best friend is gay..that's why I married him!!! I also have many straight friends who are as comfortable with my sexuality as I am with theirs...Good friendships transcend what people do in the privacy of their own bedrooms. But if a straight person were to tell me that they were a friend and I later found out that they were attracted to me--this has happened--then I just take it as a compliment and laugh it off (I'm not interested in straight sex and besides I am married).
  • well my boyfriend is my best friend so if he was gay i think i may have a problem with that....BUT if it were someone i wasnt romantically involved with then it wouldnt matter...as long as i get to make gay jokes lovingly
  • It wouldnt bother me at all! Most of my best friends are gay, and they are the greatest friends I could ever ask for! :)
  • Nope wouldn't bother me. I actually used to have a best friend and found out later he was gay.
  • no, but then I'm a lesbian and a lot of my friends are gay anyway. I have lots of straight friends as well. it doesn't matter to me what someone's sexual orientation is. what matters is if we have common interests, get along and enjoy each other's company.
  • I would not care about their sexual orientation one bit. I would be a true friend, and be happy I have a best friend.
  • I'm sure it wouldn't be a problem. It might even be pretty cool.
  • If I found out my best friend was lesbian, I would still stick by her side. She's never given me a reason to not be her friend. Being gay or lesbian does not determine whether you're a bad friend or not. The fact that she would trust me enough to confide with me about this secret shows that she would really need a friend at that moment and I would be wrong to throw her on the side and find a new best friend. I would be the bad friend if I wanted to find a new friend! However, she's straight.. and not lesbian, so what I said in my answer is how I hope I would respond. Good question, though. It really gets one thinking!
  • It wouldn't bother me. I don't judge people. You have to except people for who they are. I just don't want them telling me that being gay is alright and that is isn't a SIN!!!
  • Id feel bad for Jess (his girlfriend who loves him)
  • I'd still be friends with them but maybe not talk about relationships as often. I would try to comfort them on their feelings. It is hard to accept that kind of difference.
  • No, not at all. My best friend is gay, and it never was a problem. Life is about diversity, and everybody should be able to live as he pleases, with all his or her individual traits. Tolerance should end when one is confronted with intolerance and oppression.
  • Everyone is entilted to their own opinion. Some people don't want nothing to do with them while others are fighting to make everything about it legal. I choose to remain neutral on this one.
  • You mean really, really happy? Of course it wouldn't bother me. As for the other way gay is used, who cares about that. I'd probably kiss him/her for trusting me enough to tell me.
  • I couldn't care less.
  • No, and ABSOLUTELY NOT. Not only is someone's sexual preference utterly irrelevant to a friendship, there is also a very important point to make here: If they are your friend 'before' you find out they're gay, clearly (since you are already friends) their being gay doesn't influence your ability to be a friend to them (because they were presumably gay for some time before they actually told you / you found out), and their ability to be a friend to you... Anyone who would choose to 'find a new friend' after discovering a current friend is gay is an idiot (and quite possibly a bigot), because it would require them to forcefully forget their entire friendship to-date, or forcefully forget the meaning of the word 'friend'. Also, if you no longer want to be friends with them after such a discovery, you can be pretty damned sure that they (and a number of other people) will no longer want to be 'yours' either...
  • I wouln't care.
  • It wouldn't bother me :)
  • I have a few gay friends and I treat them just like anyone else and I don't even have to protect my penis around them. LOL
  • I don't think so but they'd have to understand I wasn't interested.
  • ACTUALLY ... It would bother me quite a bit.... you see my best friend is my partner... so if he were to turn around and be gay..... well that would be a problem now wouldnt it. Otherwise no.
  • No not at all... your friends are your friends at the end off the day, no matter wot they are, gay or not. a friend is someone that is there for you as your there for them.. smile and let live... life is too short to b caring about if your mates are gay or not... they are there for you no matter what... so smile...:)
  • not at all im a strait guy and i would love it girls love gay guys
  • basically ALL of my friends are gay. I have gay men.. gay women.. post opp friends.. pre opp friends.. transgenedered.. etc.. Gay people make great friends.. they're the best friends I've EVER had.
  • my best friend is gay :)
  • Why should ANYONE care what the sexual orientation of his or her Friends are ? It is NO ONE's business what another person's sexual identity is .... PERIOD. So; NO, it would not bother me IF one or two or even three of my friends were "gay" ... Why do we need labels ? Can't we all just be "Sexual Human Beings" ?
  • Well i ask myself am i in the mood for having gay friends around or not? then i simply look at my gf's picture and don't bother thinking about it...I am so cool
  • No it wouldn't bother me in the slightest. What peoples sexuality is, is not an issue to me, in the end they are still the same person to me, and that's what counts :)
  • Have no problem with that. I'd suck at trying to help him pick up dates though
  • Nope, wouldn't bother me at all, it might make life more interesting if anything. I wouldn't want to find a new friend at all, they would still be the same friend, just something new you know about them. Nothing changes about them, so it's completely fine :)
  • I have alot of gae ./lesbian friends. and they so nice and cool to hang with....
  • It wouldn't bother me in the least.
