I feel that as long as he isn't being cynical then his question should receive an honest response. Some people honestly don't understand and want to be able to ask those questions openly, for example by ex asked his lesbian boss, "r u the guy or girl in the relationship" he wasn't being cynical just was curious and wanted to ask so know more about her. Some people are ignorant but dont mean harm from it. Is say answer him then move on. No harsh feelings, unless he was trying to be rude.
What an absolute jackass. How can people still be so ignorant? Good luck educating the barnacle.
I know, but a lot has changed the past years and sometimes they have trouble with how things are going now. When they were young nobody dared to come out of the closet and now they see men kissing and gay parades, I understand this is a shock for them because it's nothing like they are used to see.
I would have to agree that the older generation is a lot more ignorant. I was talking to this older couple one day, like my parents age, and they couldn't believe how many gays and lesbians there are today. They honestly believe that there weren't that many of them back in their day. They think of it like it's some kind of sudden epidemic. All I could think was haven't you ever heard of Ancient Greece. It's so sad how long people had to hide and in many case feel they still have to hide.
Well, It'd be best that you explain to him that you do possess feelings, or that you look for different seating arrangments if he irks you that much. There is not much you can do at this point. Maybe you can still educate him? Although it might be too late.
Okay OP I need q name, address, and picture of this target. We must make sure he never breeds and spread this ignorance.
If they are anything like the barnacle off of How I Met Your Mother should actually be legen......... ..............wait for it........ .......dary! legendary!
