I don't know about you, but I've been with my girlfriend for a few years now and while I can obviously recognize a beautiful girl, it doesn't mean that I want to have a sexual relationship with her.

This is ridiculous ideology here man.
Its simple human nature, being in a committed relationship will not stop someone from looking and in most cases lusting. Has absolutely nothing to do with acting on it. Your girlfriend knows you are attracted to women, even if she were there I doubt she would want you to be in the shower area with multiple other women. Being politically correct and stating facts of human nature is a thin line I guess. All I know is, there WILL be players in the same locker wondering if they are being looked at in a certain way, it is what it is. In fact I guarantee there will be many in that same locker that will "alter" there normal routine, it simply is what it is. I am not going to hide behind the latest "gay friendly" mentality when pointing out facts.

Not all men, including gay men, are 15 year old horny teenagers. Your idea implies they are.

Your idea is that a gay man will see another naked man and think "man, I have to have that D".

I visit the local gym 3-4 times a week and think its BS that the gay men that visit the gym (I know a few of them and voiced my opinion to them) are allowed in, which is why I stay out! I work for a construction firm that does a lot of work with high end retail stores like Nordstrom Bloomingdales etc. and have friends that work at those stores that are gay. They know I am not a homophobe but respect (and understand) my views!
Is this Stephen Colbert?

Assuming this is not a put on, here is one columnist's view on why it may be "awkward" for some men to share a locker room with a non-closeted gay male

Last week, Jonathan Vilma speculated about how he might feel if a gay teammate saw him naked:
Imagine if he's the guy next to me and, you know, I get dressed, naked, taking a shower, the whole nine, and it just so happens he looks at me. How am I supposed to respond?
What undergirds this logic is a fear of being made into a woman, which is to say a fear of being regarded sexually by someone who is as strong as, or stronger than, you. Implicit to the fear is the gay player's ability to do violence. It exists right alongside a belief that the gay player is a "sissy." ("Grown men should not have female tendencies. Period," Vilma once tweeted.) The logic is kin to the old Confederate belief that Southern slaves were so loyal and cowardly yet they must never be given guns.


http://www.theatlantic.com/ta-nehisi-coates/

On the issue of separate gyms for straight and non-straight males, should there be a question on the gym membership applications to screen out the queers? And should management cancel their membership if a straight member complains some guy is "looking at me the wrong way"?

And since you belong to the gym but "stay out!" do you leave whenever you see someone in the gym you think is gay? Or do you ask the front desk to make an announcement for any man who is gay to identify themselves so you can stay out of harm's way?

It must be tough to have gay men checking you out constantly. Are you equally irresistible to women?

Congrats on not being a homophobe

Atlanta Dan, never did I say I stay out of the gym, just try to avoid the locker room. I associate with every gay person at the gym. You cant read between the lines and see my point that is your problem.

Living in Southern California it is just about impossible to be a homophobe.

So you work out but do not change into workout clothes or take a shower to minimize your exposure to those you know to be gay? That would seem to be part of avoiding the locker room. Since there are a lot of closeted gay men out there, you probably need to avoid it all the time if being in proximity to a gay man while you are dressing and showering is that big a concern

If you actually believe gay men should be banned from your gym because it makes you uncomfortable to be naked in front of them I am not the one with the problem and you are a homophobe regardless of whether or not you know gay men at Nordstroms and Bloomingdales.

No animosity behind that, just my observations

I have no problem with gay people, just not sure what it would do to a testosterone filled locker room?
With fine pieces of ass like this sashaying around naked in the locker room, can you blame them?





I totally see your point.

What I'm saying is stupid? No. Men can control their dicks. For some reason, gay men just want to bend all other men over, regardless of whether or not they're even gay.

I can't even...
