Pictoral representation of what happened with derek and indira

Village Inn nights really rock. We had another "last night" and may have one more, as we have been promised free pie.

Also, the line between straight and gay is way too blurry.

Definitely blurry, IMRHO. Few people fit exactly and neatly into the categories "straight" or "gay". There are too many gradations of subculture and fetish.

Kinsey developed a scale to measure sexual orientation in men; I'm not sure there's an official scale for women, but you could easily use the same ideas.

so you're saying that straight and gay people should only be allowed to do certain things, so no one confuses their sexuality? It should always be well-defined?
I shouldn't be allowed to wear a pink shirt, because I'm straight. Right?

In the case of a restaurant manager, is his sexuality really an issue? He could be gay, or just really effeminate. Or maybe he just likes to portray a gay image to make his female customers comfortable. I've done that before. Regardless, its not really an issue at all.

Sorry, I'll stop raining on your gay parade.

I didn't say that. People should be able to do whatever they want.

Yes, the manager's sexuality is an issue. There are certain boundaries that women are allowed to cross with gay men that are not allowable with straight men. For the guy's sake, we need to know when we are just messing around (in the case of a gay men) or whether we are leading someone on.

Interesting. I hadn't thought about that angle. On the one hand you could say that if he's deliberately acting gay, then he can't blame girls for reacting to him socially like he's gay, even if he's not.

On the other hand, if you're not sure whether he's gay or not, maybe it's your responsibility to err on the side of caution, and not take the chance that he might take your messing around seriously.

On the gripping hand, how much trouble will it cause if you deeply offend/upset this guy? If there's likely to be significant repercussions (like, say, being permanently unwelcome at Village Inn), it's worth being careful in any case.

I want free pie. We've fought enough for it. It's hard work, we deserve the reward!
