    Lol. I was also going to say “Preachbrother” but Pinky beat me to it.

    Anyway, yes, we’re evolving. There are a lot of straight guys who are accepting, even in this country, who all they need to stop using homophobic slurs is a gay friend to come out to them. Break the silence dudes, and come into society.
    But I’m often guilty of wide suspicions, forgive me lord. When a straight friend goes, “So you’re the ‘girl’ in the relationship, you like the sex? Does it hurt?” I begin to suspect, especially when they respond to my naughty talk the same way they respond to a guy talking about his girl. But not so much anymore, the suspicion. It’s liberating. But the homophobes are still many, but with time, and effort. Love does it all dudes.

      Rapu’m, you just have to be careful whom you come out to because some straight people may seem to accept you at first, then go spreading your tales around. Like my friend would say “They’ll open your nyash like bread and line it with butter”.
      So, just be careful *sips a mug of hot chocolate*

    This article brought lots of smiles and tears to my face at the same time. It hits all the right spots. 2 days ago, me and my sister went to visit some mutual friends. All straight guys and girls (or so I think). And the dreaded gay and lesbian topic came up. My sister said she actually likes gay guys and they all descended on her. Then another guy who is my “supposed” closest friend amongst the lots, said he would give anything to watch 2 lesbians get their freaks on but he would kill any gay he comes across. I was stunned. He then narrated how a gay dude in my street (who was so lost in my gaydar) was hitting on him and how he showed him hell. I was sick. I couldn’t say a word. I mean how could I? They were all screaming “14 YEARS”. My sister turned to me and said we should leave. I just can’t deal with the level of ignorance and hypocrisy in this country.

      At least you have one sensible person in the person of your sister. So don’t let the other haters get to you bro.

      I’m surprised you still get stunned with all that 14 years ranting shit. So you didn’t give them a good tongue lashing before leaving? *bites his forefinger*

      Lol…I get where u’re coming from sha; d writer seems not to like ANY of the things straight guys typically like (sports, cars, sports-cars, talking about chicks etc)…maybe those stereotypes just don’t apply to him…(I’ve never met a straight guy who is like him tho…)

        I have. And for the longest time, I thought he was a closeted gay. Even made the mistake of hitting on him. He coolly set me straight (no pun intended. lol) And we remained friends

        Oh wait pinky, he’s a nigerian? I thot this was from a foreign blog o! I’d find him confusing sha; he more or less implied that he wouldn’t mind being carressed by a guy(maybe even behind closed doors),as long as d guy is not straight. Surely,someone like him wouldn’t mind a, “innocent” full-body massage on a day wen he’s really stressed and aching,no? Hehehe

        They exist oo!
        One is my office that wears white diamonds, uses way more product than even I can identify.
        I had hit on one other guy like that too. He campaigned vigorously against the anti gay law on twitter. This guy de mystified masculinity. I hit on him and he politely set me straight (to steal PP words)

        Yea dennis, I understand d metrosexual guy who uses facial scrubs and hair conditioners and floral perfumes…but a straight guy who doesn’t like sports and cars and talking about chicks? Not very common…they may exist,but I’ve never met one. Like I said below,someone who is still not accepting of his sexuality CAN turn down a million gay guys,because they feel if they don’t practise,then they’re not gay (I know,because I’ve been there b4). Just because a guy turns down ur advances doesn’t mean he doesn’t know what he secretly feels (but tries to fight) inside.

        ChestNUT – as enunciated – I sometimes think straight guys who don’t like sports or talking about girls all day abound more than metrosexuals who don’t secretly fantasise about a bulging male crotch. I’d hate to generalise wihtout stats though.

        I used to be self-conscious about admitting to other guys that I didn’t like sports until I observed that we are MANY like that and not all gay.

        PS: My former roommate in school was effeminate but if you see him arguing football here, it’s quite a scene.

    “Why talk about football and criticize league players when you’re a fat fuck who can’t even climb to the second floor?”

    Someone PLEEEEAAAASSSEEE give this guy a Noble Prize or something. Good lord, that statement alone does it for me. Spoken like a true BRO without all the drama and bs that accompanies the Bro-code (Highly overrated if you ask me)

    Ps: Whoever knows him, please do tell him his next blowjob is on me- Even though he’s straight, but the offer still stands with no expiry date.

    “there’s always an excessive need to overcompensate for one’s lack of “manliness.”… This got me…I’ve been in such situations countless number of times including a week ago…Excessive pussy talk…
    I have a friend like the writer above..In the beginning I suspected he was because he’s cute as fuck and is sensitive.. Even buys me stuff while coming to visit…But I never hit on him…Came out to him last year and he laughed and said he has always known…We laughed over it and never spoke of it again.

      I’m sorry but I’m just cynical about these kind of guys sometimes because even tho inside me,I knew I was gay quite early, I thot I could use mind-over-matter to make it “unreal”; I used to tell myself “it’s just my mind playing tricks on me,afterall,I’ve never actually “done” it”(I guess that’s why I came out late). I even had a frnd who told me he was gay but I refused to verbalize my own sexuality or even accept it to myself (since I had never practised it); I just told him I didn’t have a problem with him being gay,and we left it I that,so I probably came across to him as d sensitive straight guy who was tolerant of gays. Many ppl are still like this,u know; they believe since they have no intentions of ever physically practising d secret thoughts they feel inside,then they are NOT gay.

    I kinda feel like straight guys who have no issues with gay people can be tempted into doing gay stuffs, I mean, u don’t need to be gay to sleep with another man..

    “”If a gay person fancies me, hits on me and even gets physically close, I take it as flattery. I take it as you think I’m good looking, I’m hot and that I’ve an awesome personality that appeals to both guys and girls””….
    …Wow wow wow…now I know why I had been getting quite enuf success in the conversion business sometime ago….Before i used to love to meet a guy the straighter the better and plan on hitting him to sleep with him just for the fun of it or to tell myself I could always pass as str8t!!! And i mostly succeeded cause of the above phrase…..i would just pour out accolades so much on d dude that he would crave for more attention from me and bam! I get him in the sack!!! Sigh!!! Now those were the good old days when kito demons hadn’t been unleashed on the earth as it is now!!!
    Well done guy and pinky pls invite this guy to abuja one of these days let me buy him a beer or two!!! Hehhee

    I hate falsehood even when it’s in my favor. Many conclusions here are untrue.stereotypes are false conclusions. My bf is a professional footballer and a btm 4 that matter.this piece is like a politician,s presentation.they just say anything especially if it’s what the people want to hear or if it will appeal to the people.i commend the writer for his maturity and accommodation but he doesn’t need to use false generalisations.My prayer is that God will also accept you and bless you on all sides for your tolerance.

    Well said, well written…I couldn’t agree more. God bless you writer, whoever and wherever you are. Yes, there are straight guys who are not gays but are very tolerant of our ways. It doesn’t make them less-straight or half-gays, and am privileged to know two of them. They are all I could want in friendship, you tell them your flaws expecting them to judge or reproach you and they just smile, pat your shoulder and tell you everything will turn out good. And you would never see them arguing about the stereotypes that describe straight people, but they are more straight than those who do.

    I love this piece! The writer so eloquently expressed many internal “itches” I have been having without knowing exactly how to properly word them. Guys can be so fake, incessantly attempting to out do each other when it comes to girls, cars, beer etc. But gays CAN be fake too. I just want a free world. A world where people can like what they really want to like without being afriad. I would like to be your friend, dear writer.

    Thank you so much first of all to Pink for posting this.

    And thanks to the rest for your comments. I didn’t think there’d be so much discussion here!

    Just wanted to say I’m really happy to know my article has hit a nerve in a good way in y’all. Without going too deep, yep, I think there’re a lot of straight guys like me around. They’re just lurking and being way too quiet.

    Cheers!
