    Oh hell yeah. Gave me new perspective on clothes too as one guy visiting whilst I was a student (introduced to us as gas 40 year old Asian, pc right) gave the best damn advice on clothes. Like a hetro woman he was thinking of what us attractive on a man but unlike the usual female perspective didn't pick out "cute" stuff or things to make you seem more childlike and in need of love but strong choices, masculine choices.

    If I could have a closet advisor, it'd be him every time.
    (typical NT response, I've found a utility for him so it's all good.. Nothing more complex than that.)
    Isn't it time for a colourful metaphor?

    I have spent most of my post-secondary education and all of my career in professions where men have been a large majority. This means most people I have dealt with on a daily basis have been a "potential sexual partner". Honestly it has never been a problem. In fact, as the cartoon goes, the odds were very good.

    I don't know about safer, but the gay people I have known have been some of the kindest, most compassionate and understanding people. I have always wondered whether this was because they understood so well how it is to be treated in the opposite manner.
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    My best friend is gay, and...well, I'm not quite the best dressed straight guy in New York City, but I'm leagues ahead of where I used to be.

    Funny how our perceptions are so much like mirror images, no?

    It's amazing how often I find myself agreeing with you!

    (No sarcasm intended.)

    PS: I'm still curious about what you think and how you feel about Bizarro Lark's opinions on Catholic partnership.

    Yup, never grew up in a place like New York so my journey hasn't been so well educated but this guy has the right idea.
