  •  Yeah... (0+ / 0-)

    that's how straight men should look at it.  "Hey... no competition!"  You'd think straight men would prefer gay friends who will not hit on their wives or girlfriends.

    •  But the converse (0+ / 0-)

      is that the gay man is the one who doesn't have a girlfriend for the straight man to steal. Some straight men seem to regard heterosexuality as primarily a form of social competition between men, where making the other guy lose is at least as important as gaining something of value for yourself. I suspect this is actually the motivation for a great many hiking trips on the Appalachian Trail.
