To get his opinion on the subject, I cleverly (or so I'd like to think :P) asked him his opinions on some controversial issues over AIM. I started with the death penalty, went to abortion, and ended with gay rights. I thought this would be a great way to get the information without suddenly bringing up the subject.
Me: what about gay rights?
My Friend: ummm be more specific
Me: should a gay person be treated any differently than a straight person?
Me: because of the person's sexuality
My Friend: nope
My Friend: altough i might treat them diff...just cause i m kinda homophobic i guess
My Friend: i wouldnt treat em bad though
My Friend: just
Me: how would you treat them differently?
My Friend: ummm i wouldnt like get to know them
My Friend: or
My Friend: like
My Friend: get "close" to them cause they r gay
My Friend: thats just me
My Friend: i m self consious about it
Me: you're afraid the person might like you or something?
My Friend: yes
My Friend: lol
My Friend: like if a gay guy hugs you...not so good
Me: i guess
Me: but i don't see a lot of guys hugging guys
My Friend: i know
Me: lol do you hug guys?
Me: or do guys hug you?
My Friend: ummm if its joking around i m fine with it
My Friend: but if a guy hugs you for like a goodbye or somethin
My Friend: not saying that has happened to me but if it did i would feel akward toward them
Me: that'd make me feel awkward too (I said this line so I would fit in)
Then there was silence and he changed the subject.
I was thinking he would be the second person to know, but after this conversation I don't want him to be.
I have many more stories that I consider amusing to share in the near future. I hope everybody will like them.
I look forward to reading everybody else's entries since these things amuse me :D.
