    No, it would be a double standard if I was bothered by women hitting on men. If I went to a lesbian pride rally and hit on a woman, would it be a double standard for her to be bothered by me hitting on her since, presumably, she's okay with being hit on by women?

    I don't know that "no thank you" is all I'd say.

    Or is the problem irrational fear?
    Fear? I don't think that's it, but I'll be honest and admit for me, there's a definite ick factor. I just don't want gay guys hitting on me.

    By the way, did it ever occur to you that gays might not find you attractive?
    That's want I want to believe and I wouldn't want to be dispelled of that belief.

    I suspect that some many/most gays are used to being hit on by straits. Are you unable to handle something they can.

    You can thank me later for that line IT.

    Funny how you try and hedge your bet with the lesbian rally scenario.

    It's a double standard, dude. People don't have this automatic sense that the person they're about to hit on wants to be hit on. You're applying a different standard to yourself than to others.

    True....but the idea that gay men are interested in Straight men is usually a fantasy from a not very attractive straight guy.

    No I'm not. I promise never to hit on another guy.

    Okay, maybe so, but I know I'm not the only one who feels this way. I bet I'm not even in the minority so, when talking about DADT and the military, we have to deal in what is, and not what you think should be.

    BTW, I didn't understand this.

    I bet you have no evidence you are not in a very small minority. I bet most our young people these days can handle being hit on by some one of the gender they are not attracted too quite easily. I bet saying "no thank you" is pretty easy, and the more attractive gay men and women frequently have to say it to both genders...and handle it.
