I'm not one to make a quick judgement, so...
Mr. Trombone may have shown his true colors too soon. And I am thisclose to marking him as homophobe.
He lives in a predominately gay neighborhood. A gayborhood, if you will.
His condo complex, I'm pretty sure, is 90% gay.
With that information:
Last week I took note of one of his neighbor's rainbow pride flag and joked: Do you think there is a straight pride flag out there?
His answer: "Yes, there is. It's red, white, blue, and has 50 stars on it.
He was not joking.
Last night he was shocked to learn that I have gay friends (and a lesbian). He told me he knew no gay people.
Again, condo-90% and I'm being lenient. Also am I naive to think that at our age (25 - 30) you must know of at least one gay person. Am I wrong?
If I wasn't friends with any, I (did) work with at least two that I knew of.
This afternoon I was driving through his neighborhood, while on the phone with him. I passed a really good hamburger joint and asked the question: "Have you ever been to Hunky's?"
His answer: "No, I'd never go there because of the those people there. I think I would leave there with a lot more than I planned on ordering."
But again, the condo, seriously, maybe I can knock it down to 50% gay?!?
or are those comments that very hetero males make? I don't know, I been around gays too long.
He also was in UT? Austin? Marching Band!?
