    Ummm, it's pretty easy to tell, if you've spent any time around a person, and interacted with them.

    Then again, think about how hard it would be to date as a homosexual, I mean you're clearly in the minority, and while heteros can easily assume that the woman their attracted to is probably straight, gays don't have that luxury.

    Just sayin'



    Also, if I'm setting up my friends, I'd like to know what sexual preferences they have as well.
    Good points by both of you. I didn't anticipate that scenario in the OP and should've specified that Im tired of unsolicited statements regarding sexual preference.

    That's why we adopted online dating quickly. I think the numbers like 60% of gay couples met online for the last year.

    I could care less about someone else's preferences. That ain't none of my bitness.

    But I would very much like it if those darned Clemson fans would stay off of facebook.

    Auburn fans were worse until somebody killed their tree and taught them some humility.

    I think for Public Figures, many of them really, it's more about being honest with themselves and releasing themselves from that burden. I mean, not a month goes by that I don't hear about another marriage ruined because one of them were gay and never came out. My fiance is in a play with a man (which probably should of been the first clue) who is about to end a 25 year marriage with his wife because of that. And nowadays, FB is a low key place to post that sort of thing. With as much as people put their lives into it, if I was interested in a person, I'd probably check that out to find out about them. That would be a good way to subtly let people know, having your orientation set to homosexual or whatever FB does.

    Still, it must be hard if you are at work, and you see someone you like, and odds are they aren't in your lean. For a straight person, odds are strong in your favor if you like a co-worker, that she will at least be of the same lean. Which is probably a big reason why, as brothern was saying, online dating has become so popular... less of a chance of rejection.

    Not even gay guy walks around with a strut and effeminate, and not even gay girl is a butch. Then again, I think my gaydar is broken anyways and I can never tell. You may just have a better one than I.

    Nope, don't give a damn and neither should anyone else.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Do you seriously think I don't realize that?

    I've been hit on by lesbian women- it doesn't insult me, nor does it surprise me. I also have man friends who are gay, and it's been pretty obvious from the get-go that they were. It's not an issue of effeminate behavior. It's an issue of understand chemistry between sexes.

    Not really, Hence why I added in the second part; your gaydar, is much better than mine then.
