Would you accept a gay or lesbian person into your social circle? if not, why not?

I would have no problem with this . If I got to know someone and liked them for who they were and then found out they were gay or a lesbian well then to me , they would still be the same person that I liked before and felt I had some connection with weather it was that they were funny or just someone that was easy to talk to .

yessssss some of my best friends are gay and they are the easiest people to talk to i have ever met. I feel, if people do exclude us from their social circle it is their loss

Yes! I have before, and they are not unlike other people. It isn't like they have cooties or anything. Besides, it would teach people tolerance. There is just too much tolerance for hatred and not enough for acceptance and love.

Oh absolutely no problems here, a few of my 'old' friends were gay and the BEST people to take shopping with you! You get a prospective of a man's opinion, without the fear of jealousy of a woman lol! No they're only human too and sometimes more fun to be with!!

Why not? I am heterosexual; I have many gay and lesbian friends, and I also have many heterosexual friends. We do things together all the time. Gay people do not socialize strictly with gay people. To me, we're all people and we all live in the same world. I judge people by values such as integrity, honesty, and loyalty. I like to socialize with people who share my interests and who are fun to be around. Who cares who they go home to at the end of the night? Or even who they bring with them!

you both get a plus for this. Yes i agree why should we judge people in terms of their sexuality ? unfortunately, in the real world, people often do.

Not only my social circle but my family circle as well. My uncle was gay and my sister is also gay. They are still the same people and I still love them with everything in me. I dont think a persons sexualality has any affect on me whats so ever. Each to their own I say!

Yes of course I would! I've a few friends who're bi..and a few who're lesbian. It doesn't matter to me really..people are people no matter how they love in my opinion . . they're made up the same flesh and blood we are after all.. I see no reason to exclude them just because they like a different gender than me. It just seems silly to do that.

yes it is silly, i think it is also extremely narrow minded but may display an insecurity in ones own sexuality

Some of my best friends are gay and they are the easiest people to talk to i have ever met They can look at everything from both sides. Also they are great to take shopping for clothes as they give an honest opinion and seem to know what suits me.

hahaha this seems to fit in with the majority, its a shock with all this liberal opinion where all the bigotry comes from

Yes of course, I've some friends who are gay, I like them for who they are not because they are or are not gay. One specific friend who is gay is probably the best friend a woman can have, always there to listen, helps choosing gifts, tells me what my other friends wouldn't especially if I was going out dressed in something totally unflattering.

Why not? I am sure that there are some (gay or lesbian) in every community and circle. Maybe we don't know. By the way I can't see any problem about that. Is that important? Not for me, we work with them, we meet them every where. They are normal people.

I would not have a problem with letting them into my social circle. I myself am a lesbian so I definately wouldn't have a problem with it. But I would be hurt if someone wouldn't include me into their circle if I did add something to it.

No, I don't think I would. I just don't like them. I mean, they have a right to live their lives how they see fit, but I don't really feel comfortable around them.

im fascinated as to what makes you feel uncomfortable? I also feel you will have people you know who are gay and by excluding us you are missing out, blessed be
