    How does a gay man feel comfortable with other gay or straight men in everyday life encounters?

    I feel so uncomfortable being around men, I want to crawl under a rock and need to feel more confident like I belong to the male species and am not unique.

    This is a great question! I think as a straight women with many gay friends that we all need to keep our private lives outta our professional lives. It is out of control these days. Honestly we all deserve to be loved and no one but God can judge. I hope that you don't feel alone. I am sure a lot of gay men are judged by straight men, it is a big problem in society- They are just bullying!!. Who cares what you do behind closed doors just go about your day and smile with wonder when someone gives u the evil eye. My solution, screw the men, women are so much more fun!

      Straight men are more Macho and they have a propensity to abuse gay men I have seen that in different countries Also gay men are more feminish and artistic and Straight men can smell that and most of them get a kick out of bullying them what a shame

    I guess I would start off answering a question with a question:  If the man (whether gay or not) is uncomfortable around any men, then I would ask does this man feel comfortable around anyone - man or woman?

    This might not be about sexuality but about being uncomfortable in social situations.  The truth is TJSMITH - you ARE unique - but not any more (or less) than the next person.  I have learned a long time ago to embrace my weirdness.  My husband jokes that he wants to be the man once in a while.  I joke back that I'm a delicate butterfly and want to be a girl (once in a while)  LOL  That doesn't make me less of a woman.

    Dudley Moore once said he put on 10 pairs of underwear when doing the love scene with Bo Derek for the movie 10 because he was afraid of uh...standing at attention during filming.  What I propose is you get your armor on, get your attitude on, and when you're around people who make you uncomfortable THINK (do not say out loud) "Eff You, Ice Chucker!  You're not better than me."
