Every Straight Guy’s Conundrum

Every Straight Guy’s Conundrum

So a male Facebook acquaintance of mine recently updated the post below on his Timeline.FB1

That’s it. The end. No elaboration of how he discovered this information. Just him wondering aloud on what to do with his discovery. And below are some of the comments that trailed the update.FB2FB3

And now, I’m throwing this to you guys. What if you discovered that that guy that your sister or female BFF is seeing is actually gay, what would you do?

        I am vindictive! I don’t pretend about it. She found messages on my phone back in school and went to broadcast it! My then gf refuted it and fought her over it! The rumor died down, but she has been on my “people to destroy” list since then!

        When an (older) Ex was being pressured for marriage and he wanted to marry anybody who was working and pretty, I introduced them and voila! They clicked!

        They even made me a groom’s man for the wedding LOL!

        She will find out eventually (they end up finding out anyway) and she will confront me and I will take her down memory lane in a pink Limousine!

    I don’t think the guy is in the right position to tell the girl. What is the big deal about it sef? If they are both in love let them be. If the girl is actually genuinely happy, let her be. There are some girls that love someone to the extent of not minding if he is gay or even HIV positive, all the want is to be close to that person.

    Also, if you are worried about him cheating on her, that is not an issue. At least people in straight relationship also cheat despite the level of love and affection. So, if that is a problem, leave it at that. Except you think the guy is not good enough for her or maybe he is not responsible. But if it is just his sexuality that is his problem, abeg free am joor, at least most of us are going to be in that position soon…

    I’d tell her, I owe it to her to tell her the truth as a friend. Mostly for her own safety. Safety because we’ve had issues here were married men have in indulged in indiscriminate bareback orgies putting there wife at risk of contracting terminal illnesses, im not saying all bisexual men are that careless. but when the chips are down Bisexual men and gay men in general are more at risk at getting HIV and HPV (warts) especially the latter, HPV in particular can be really disastrous for women, as it increases their risk of having cervical cancer. And condoms do not protect against it.

    so I’d rather my friend or sister is with a straight man. Health wise she’s less at risk

    I don’t think anything that goes into the ass of a man should go into the vagina of a woman, I just dont.

    I have a friend who’s HIV positive, his boyfriend is aware of his status but they are still very much together. Theyve had unprotected sex a couple of times but his bf insists he’s negative- which I find interesting. Now his bf is about getting married to a girl. in ways I feel bad for the girl cause there’s a high likelihood that the man she is getting married to is HIV positive and in denial about it. I wish someone would tell her.

      Now this is crazy and totally different….

      I think the most you can do is to try and tell the girl to insist on doing HIV test. At least most churches makes that part of the requirements. In fact you do the test in the church’s clinic and you don’t get to see the result…anything that involves health should not be toyed with.

      Anyway, I also know some people who insists on condom…no matter how conji take reach…no condom, no sex…

      I still wonder why people still have sex without condoms…

        Its not just HIV Gad, its also HPV like I’ve pointed out. Its the most common STD in the gay community and condoms do not protect against it; and like I mentioned,it increases a woman’s risk of having cervical cancer 10fold..Many gay men carry the virus but do not show any symptoms and are completely oblivious about it and can easily pass it down to their girlfriends regardless of whether they use condoms or not. And she in turn will either get the warts ( which are really horrible and hard to rid off on a vagina) or she gets the virus which predisposes her to cervical cancer. All of this would have been avoided if she’d been with a straight man. I think bisexual men should really stick to one hole

    I see words like “suffer”, “wreck” and I wonder where they are coming from… are we saying that all gay or bisexual men that get married are irresponsible?

    I beg to differ. Are we saying if she’s with a straight guy then she is free from HIV coz he would always use a condom when cheating and fucking all his hoes??? :s

    Like I said earlier, it depends on the person involved. If he is responsible and make my friend/sister happy… biko I let them be.

      Oluwadamilare Okoro, I used the word “Suffer” because that’s what will happen “when” She finds out. My BFF or whatever can’t be used as a beard (unless she consents to it) Or some cover-up for your sexuality because you want to follow the norms of the society.

      I’m not getting married.
      Not because I hate virginas.
      On the contrary, my dick bobbles when I see a “bae”. A beautiful “bae”.

      But I can’t and will not put a lady through that “shenanigan” act because I will always choose a dick/ass over her warm pussy.

And to all those asiri(amebo) people who wanna tell, remember 90% of you here will eventually get married to a lady and have probably left a body trail in the past. So someone who knows the girl you wanna settle with will tell her too. Imagine how you’ll feel. #SomethingToThinkAbout

    I’ve got 3 sisters and no brother. I’ve already made peace with the possibility that one of them will marry a gay man anyway.

    Question now is, if I know.

    Truth is, I will not be as bothered about his sexuality as I would be about how he perceives his sexuality. I hope he’s not one of those terribly traumatised by the rank homophobia in these parts he can’t even think straight; I hope he’s not one of those who sees his sexuality as an affliction or a quittable habit; I hope he’s not one of those who promote all kinds of discrimination and shallow ideas within the gay comnunity; I hope he’s in a good place as regards self-acceptance and realises the gravity of what he’s about to do and – given a different environment – wouldn’t do it. I hope he’s not one of those who think all gay men should marry women anyway and fulfil all of society’s obligations.

    Once he satisfies all these criteria then he has my vote, because I understand. Because I know my sister will be marrying a good man – his heart and head are in the right place.

    Now…what if he’s none of the things mentioned above? My honest answer is: I don’t know what I’d do. I don’t believe in breaking “bad news” to the ignorant party in a relationship; never have, hope never to. Secondly, I don’t see how I’d chase the guy away from my sister without coming across as insensitive and callous… Plus there’s my sister’s feelings to consider as well.

    I don’t know what I’d do, tbh.

    Meanwhile, I was discussing this issue with a friend last week and he said it’s important that we come out to our sisters so that as they sort through the dating pool, they are prepared and observant, to prevent complicated situations such as this. An advice I plan on acting on very soon.

    If it were my sister, I will know at that point that my outing to my family is imminent. I’d tell her before he casts me and then go ahead to stop their relationship.
    If its a friend, any body I have termed ‘friend’ is as close as family. She has to know. If she decides to be homophobic (of which all my friends are liberal) at least she’d b thankful I saved her a heartache. I bet she will come asking me to veto her subsequent BFs. Homophobia or not.

      bisexuality is real. it’s a fact. I don’t get people who like to see sexuality as black and white. People who don’t believe someone can be either strictly bottom or strictly top; people who think versatiles are simply bottoms trying to be cool; people who believe that bisexuals are gay men lying to themselves. These distinctions exist. Deal with it.

    And all this on the assumption that a bi (I don’t know about the exclusive gay) cannot truly love and have a healthy sex life with a girl is based on what research abeg? All these patriotic abi loving brothers that can’t stand their sisters marrying a bi guy abeg calm down before your temperature reaches 10000celcius. Yes I’m bisexual, I am dating your sister, don’t sweat it: I already told her that and she confessed she’s done stuff with girls too. So bring it on and watch it turn on your head. Did I sense some traces of jealousy from the exclusive gay guys cos others can have good sex with both sexes? *cats walks away with my engagement ring*

      Ok if you all say not true…then how come more than half of you all want to OUT your half brother just coz he wants a home and kids.
