Apr 13 Endash commented on Savage Love Letter of the Day: She Wants a Gay FWB.
FWIW I've noticed, in an entirely unscientific way, that heterosexually-inclined guys seem more amenable to identifying as "bi," particularly in that sexual-but-not-romantic sense, while homosexually-inclined guys seem more inclined to stick with "gay" or hedge with an in between label like "homoflexible." My speculation is that the former see any deviation from strict heterosexuality as significant, and indicative of the need for a separate identity, while the latter are already far removed from "the norm" and make more pragmatic judgements, based on personal history, romantic/sexual attraction mix, and the likelihood of it actually making a difference in reality.

It stretches the purpose of taxonomy to lump Kinsey 5.9s, 0.1s, 3s, and every possible point in between, into the same group labeled "bi." If a guy is attracted to men over women at a 50 or 100-to-1 ratio, why on earth shouldn't they consider themselves gay, rather than lump themselves in with "I'll fuck a guy, but I only want a girlfriend and eventually a wife and family" guys?

All of the flavors mentioned sound HORRIBLE so I assumed this was a parody.

Why is that guy pointing the megaphone into the air instead of at the crowd? Reminds me of a protest I went to once where they stretched a banner in front of the speaker. It was like charlie brown mwah mwah mwah.

Rereading it I see that the LW *doesn't* say the BF's GF is married to a man. Weakens my argument somewhat, but I still think the gist is accurate.

My final reading of the situation: There are two worlds here. The LW is having a gay old time queering it up with all manner of, presumably, dudes but also possibly ladies. The LW's partners are also for the large part gay or queer. The BF, however, is not only NOT chasing dick when given the go ahead, he settles into a charmingly heterosexual affair with a married woman, who we are told is married to a man to set the stage for us to presume she's heterosexual. LW is in queersville, BF is in heterovania. It's a classic anxiety/insecurity issue. The poly thing is a red herring: the LW is looking for a way out of an emotional investment with this person that doesn't mean confirming his worst fears and anxieties.

Additionally, the details about his hookups the LW DOES give us is that some of them have "boyfriends." It seems clear that the gender of the people the other person(s) is/are involved with matters to the LW.

@28 In that it's a piece of information that isn't relevant at all to the issue presented--and that we're to take at face value--it is highly conspicuous, especially considering that the rest of the letter is pretty short on irrelevant detail. It's human nature to focus on details that do matter to us, however apparent that may actually be on a conscious level, and to disregard details that don't. Hence, a focus on that particular detail (and lack of focus on similar details elsewhere, such as the gender(s) of the people the LW is attracted to/sleeps with) leads me to believe it is of unremarked upon importance, and not mere exposition.
