Dad: I may sound like a jerk when saying this, but am I the only one who thinks that a gay guy in a men’s locker room is just as bad as a straight guy in a women’s locker room?
Mom: No, I can agree with that.
Dad: I mean, am I wrong?
I’m rather upset that I didn’t say this in the conversation, because it hasn’t hit me yet, and fighting with my dad is an activity I’d rather not participate in, but:
"So what I am hearing is that because I am a guy, I cannot be trusted around naked women. That because I am a guy, I am automatically a pervert? I work in a theater show, and in the backstage area, we have a common dressing room for the actors to get changed in. Men and women. Together. Somehow, they’re not having sex with each other. Somehow, they have managed to suppress these urges. SOMEHOW!
I just think it is rude as fuck to assume that I can’t be trusted in a women’s locker room, just as much as I think it is rude that a gay guy can’t be trusted in a men’s locker room. That is prejudice. You bigoted fuck.”
I find it rather upsetting that we are still having this conversation. What happens between consenting adults is none of my business. And I find it rather upsetting that my fellow heterosexuals are making it their business.
