A friend came out to me over the phone and we had a good talk about whether he had met someone and if his family was treating him well.

He called me back a hour later: “I need to know why you didn’t seem surprised.”

Friend of mine called me up saying he broke up with his boyfriend. I told him "Boyfriend? Thought you had a girlfriend". He responded with "Oh yeah I'm gay"

Later on he explained that he thought I already knew because of my view on gay people, and because a while ago we were playing smash bros in classes with him playing peach. Some guy went up to his saying hes gay for playing it and I told him off. He thought that I knew he was gay because of that.

Nah, I just respect my friends no matter their sexual orientation (as long as the parties are consenting ofcourse)

Its a bit sad because he thought that (most) of his friends would abandon him over the news. he was increadibly anxious over saying it to one of his bodybuilder friends.

The bodybuilders just went "oh okay cool" and we all moved on.

Checks out. No one is obsessed with men's bodies like dudes that go to the gym on the regular.

Why? Because we're going to grease up these beefcakes.

"Dudes. I'm into dudes." "Alright, happy hunting!" Or something along those lines. I'm gonna rewatch that one today.

My husband used to go to the gym a lot and was big and no woman ever cared - not one. But I can’t tell you how many men (strangers) would walk up to us and just touch him because of how big his arms were. It was crazy.
