Today, I found out that my employers hired me under the assumption that I was gay. Apparently, they are attempting to be perceived as more open-minded. I'm not gay, but I'm afraid being straight could cost me my job. FML

Learn to embrace your flamboyant nature. Time to buy some pink.

#5: That's a good idea, actually.

#18 & #19--Who cares about your narrow minded attitudes. Isn't there a Klan rally you should be getting ready for?

in the military, you can be discharged if someone finds out your gay.

27 - Is that true?

FFML_314 11're blue.

Dare them to fire you for being straight- you'd get enough from the sexual harassment and discrimination suit to be set for life and never have to work again!

33 yes it's true.

25, AiDS would have been less of an issue if it weren't for gay people in the 70's. It may not have originated from them, but obviously the break-out did.

FFML_314 11

Mono would have been less of an issue had all those people stopped kissing each other. I think that was sometime in the early 1800s. I could be wrong! Asshole.

What #35 said. They can't fire you based on your sexual preference, so just confess the next chance you get. It'll look worse if you lie. And if they do fire you... you've got a pretty damn good case.

34 that may be tru but still no coloreds allowed in the klan

FFML_314 11

Well if you're black, you won't have to worry. Black and white aren't colors. They're shades.

touche...but not according to the kkk

Um.... not any longer.... you can/will get your arse kicked by homophobes. They got rid of the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy (at least with USArmed Forces). Believe me, I just took a survey with my Command about it... Most are pissed. I don't see the big deal though

what if your boss says to prove you are gay by sucking his cock

ucofresh 4

Lol.. How ironic. it's usually us gays worried about getting fired! Funny story.

ucofresh 4

And, thinice, we'd rather die than you be gay too! you ignorant prick.

If i were you id let tem think what they want. times are hard haha whether they think your gay/straight/bi is not worth losing your job over

22- fuck all the homophobics? well you probably would fuck them. in their asses. you homo. xD

I agree with 22. people need to be more open minded and less ignorant:/ homosexuals are still normal people.

it's homophobes. and i thought the military were still conducting surveys or tests on repealing that rule?

just because you think being gay is wrong does not mean you are narrow minded. I have gay friends, but I still think it is wrong and unnatural. and it is unnatural because it is natural to reproduce, something a by couple can not do.

16- quit trying to recruit people

fuck, you got to loose the pussy

FFML_314 11

This is how I feel. I don't think the sexuality of another person is anyones business but that persons. We should be supporting our fellow man/woman. Regardless of sexual orientation. I know this is a losing battle. This is the kind of topic that you can't argue, because people will never change their views. If you believe something is wrong, you are entitled to have your opinion, but when something is completely out of another persons control, is it really necessary to intentionally hurt that person? Do you think people choose to be hated? It's obviously something that can't be helped. Some people are incredibly narrow minded, when they believe their way is right. Just because you don't believe it's right, doesn't mean it's wrong. If you don't like it, turn another cheek. Hopefully people learn to grow up and understand that times have changed. Stop being so stuck in what you read. Learn to live your life freely and love who you are.

to the people being mean to gays.... qhats wrong with gays? im not gay but i think everyone is equal so fuck off cuz its rude. the only thing i hate more than making fun of homosexuals is making fun of someones religion/belief or racism

@78 Wow, you're not that great of a friend then, are you?

ur religion is stupid

@ 27 - you cant get discharged for being gay. You can get discharged for committing a homosexual act

That's when you go into their office, admit to being straight, and exclaim "free at last, free at last, thank the good lord almighty I am free at last!"

lot more homophobia on fml than I thought there'd be... I feel like I'm in the comments section of YouTube I'd really like to hear an argument against homosexuality that goes beyond "it's unnatural" which is obviously untrue.

I think that sexual orientation is definitely something that should be free, but i do think that, yes this sounds stupid: Gay people should be less gay In public. I agree everyone has the right to express themselves via clothing (which is what I'm referring to in "less gay") but no person with testicles should be wearing heels or womens boots or womens clothing. I am way cooler with gay guys who dress what high school would call regular than these flamboyant wierdos who thrive on "being different" and the attention they get for it

102 the arguement is society controls everything. and u cant argue with society...u can only manipulate it. which is why i said religion is stupid. its one of the few elements that can manipulate society

What about heterosexual couples in which one or both of the people are sterile? And elderly couples? They can't reproduce.

Instead of saying no homo, just say homo

And when you're talking about football, make sure to call "no hetero".

Well, they can't fire you just because you're straight. That would be discrimination!

Lmao! That's messed but they can't fire you for being straight

Sun_Kissed18 25

And technically they shouldn't hire you for being gay haha

say you're either bi or a big metro sexual should work?

RoccoRox 0

sounds like your stuck between a rock and a hard place.

If the salary is very good, then just go gay-for-pay.

Give this man a cookie, goddammit!

Maybe the boss is just looking for a hot date.

They can't fire you for being gay. Anti-discrimination laws protect majorities just as well as they protect minorities. Make sure they know that if they fire you for being straight, you'll sue the hell out of them. Also, if you do decide to tell them you're straight, make sure you don't screw up while you're looking for a better job, one where people don't hire based on sexuality, or do what a couple others have said and tell them you're bi.

YDI for acting gay at ur job interview
