So here's a question, what should we say when someone comes out to us? I mean, obviously we express love and support but what, literally, should be the first words that come out of our mouths? I have a lot of gay family members on my dad's side, but I don't think any of them ever came out to me personally; I just sort of. grew up knowing or found out when someone showed up to a wedding with their date. Same with my friends; they're just gay, they were out long before I knew them. .On my mom's side though it would be considered a fairly big deal by a lot of my relatives and if one of my cousins was gay I bet they'd choose me to come out to and I'm genuinely not sure what should be my first word.s. I'd probably be thinking something long the lines of "oh ok. Can I have some of your French fries?" But I know it would be a big deal to them so I'd. want to be supportive... I guess I could tell them I'm bi but should I start with that, seems like I'd be stealing their thunder. So, seriously, dialogue suggestions, please.

"I don't want a kid, but I want to have sex and come inside you and I don't want to wear a condom or get a vasectomy. Instead, I want to rely on a notoriously unreliable form of birth control that is a great deal of work for you, that is easy to get wrong and sometimes doesn't work even if you get it all right, and if you do get pregnant I will hate you for it."
Of course, to be fair, a guy with this attitude would certainly never get me pregnant, so maybe he's onto something,

I'd find "there's a chance you might find someone, and you can be happy even if you don't" much, much more comforting than "you'll definitely find someone," because I'd know the latter was bullshit...

I wish the term unicorn had been around back when I was one... I think it would have made me a lot less willing to put up with bullcrap if I'd realized how rare and magical I was.

A coworker of mine, a bit of an airhead, once told me angrily, "my neighbors say I'm too loud during sex, and that's none of their business!"
She honestly thought they were saying it was sinful, or improper, or something.
Soooo hard not to laugh.

Makes me a bit crazy that this guy thinks that liking smelly feet means approaching strange women and asking them to please induldge his kink. Does he think men whose kinks are breasts and vaginas do this?

12, 22-- I'm like you, I absolutely can't stand to have my feet touched. It's unusual, but not a problem, I don't think... to each their own, right? When I used to online date, I'd occasionally get approached by someone with a foot fetish and I'd let them know quickly and clearly that I wasn't their gal... and send along a picture of my feet in a pair of strappy heels to show I didn't think there was anything wrong with THEM :)

My father and his super-hippie friends definitely used "politically correct" with absolute sincerity in the 80s (with one another: "you know, what you just said wasn't very politically correct" as a way of calling out *inadvertent* racism, sexism, homophobia, and also as a way of saying that official literature needed to be proof-read to make sure it lacked offensiveness) but only for about two months, at which point it became co-opted by people who wanted to complain about their right to be assholes.

As someone who has done a lot of both, going doing on a guy is DEFINITELY WAY more taxing than going down on a girl. They're both taxing, mind you, just one is much more than the other.
