While my sister was taking me to school this morning, she started talking about what her co-worker asked her. She asked her: "Could you ever really be friends with lesbians?" My sister said yes and said she even invited two lesbian friends and two straight friends to our house a few years back. Then, for some reason, they came up with this conclusion: "Straight guys can never truly be friends with gay guys." I told her that's not true because there're several straight guys with gay best friends, but then she said: "How do you know if they're truly straight?" She did have a point, even if she did generalize a ton, but it made me stop and think: Can gay and straight guys really be close friends? Can they talk about sex, relationships, private and non-romantic intimate things straight buddies share with each other? I think so. I believe both guys can be confident in their sexuality and have a strong, lasting friendship and discuss gay relationships and sex. My good friend is straight and while we don't talk about our love life much, we still can get along and have a good chat. What do you guys think? EDIT: The explaination behind the opinion is she thinks straight men would be too insecure to have a gay close friend, which is another generalization.
