No offence to both of you, but what you said smack of homophobia. Would you find the below questionable if used in different context, e.g.
Hey, perhaps I should go volunteer at the Red Cross so I can meet some good people in the straight community.
And no offence to anyone who happens to be Asian or black or of a certain race (for the sake of argument), but the idea of ..... is revolting to me. That does not mean that I can't determine whether an Asian or whoever is attractive, just like I can do so with art or a car, but the idea of attraction or even worse, contact with an Asian , etc is repulsive.
This argument makes so little, if any, sense that I am glad iammatt responded to it because I would have been a lot harsher.
In summary, here are my beliefs. I don't like penis (except my own), I don't think of nor want to be affectionate with any man and I have no issue with men who do want to fall in love with or have sex with other men, as a friend or two of mine have. How any of that would be considered homophobic is beyond me.
