POLL: Straight talk for the gay man

Friday, June 05, 2009 - 12:00 AM

A reader writes...Q: My girlfriend Linda has this old friend, Ryan, who visits now and then. Ryan is gay. I've never had a problem with gay folks, but this guy can't seem to get through a conversation without some tale of his exploits with men -- and he shares a lot more than I want to hear from anybody, gay or straight. The thing is that Linda and he go way back. Should I tell her how much he bugs me or just let it ride and make myself scarce when he comes to visit? Or am I a closet homophobe who needs re-education?

POLL: This guy should...
 
16% (212) ... have his girlfriend speak to the guy.
 
57% (749) ... man up and speak to the guy himself.
 
7% (97) ... loosen up.
 
5% (77) ... leave before the guy visits.
 
12% (157) ... try to switch the conversation by sharing stories of his own sex life
