A gay man slept with his straight roommate and now things are super awkward

It’s the classic, age-old dilemma: gay man sleeps with straight bro roommate, only to be given the silent treatment later on.

Ok, maybe it’s not exactly classic or age-old. But it is a dilemma and it did happen to a man recently who has since sought the wisdom of Slate‘s advice guru, Rich Juzwiak.

In his letter, the man, who identifies himself as “Straight Shooter,” says that he slept with one of his straight roommates when they were both drunk.

“I am the only gay guy (seemingly!) in a shared house of five guys, and this was very much unplanned,” he continues. “I was totally fine with it, and he acted like he was too, but it’s clear he’s not.”

Time clearly doesn’t heal all wounds because “Straight Shooter” then adds, “A month later, I now hear him having loud sex with women regularly, which I definitely never heard before.”

If you’re worried that his roommate has grown hostile with him, “Straight Shooter” assures us he has not, but did mention that “he won’t really look me in the eye either.”

Not surprisingly, the other men in the house noticed something going on and even asked “Straight Shooter” if he’d noticed their fellow straight bro “acting strangely.”

Ultimately, “Straight Shooter” just wants to know: should he let the whole thing go?

Right off the bat, Rich advises him to “relax” and to “stop beating yourself up.”

“It’s not dumb to hook up with a self-identified straight guy; it’s hot,” he says. “You (presumably) introduced him to the joys of gay sex, and he clearly wanted to learn sometime.”

“What was on the “dumb” side (to use your word) was hooking up with a platonic roommate, as now you have to look at him not looking at you every day.”

“Like many of life’s pleasures, hooking up with a straight (or closeted) guy comes with a cost,” Rich advised. “The price you pay for hooking up with someone who is less than secure in his sexuality is the awkwardness that comes after. Let him sort this out on his own, or at most, let him make the first move.

Sophie Turner, known for her roles as Sansa Stark on Game of Thrones and Jean Grey in the X-Men movies (including this year’s Dark Phoenix), spoke about love in a recent interview with Rolling Stone.

More specifically, in the article, which focuses on her and GoT co-star Maisie WilliamsGrowing Up Game of Thrones,” Turner spoke about the way she loves. She revealed that she “never thought she’d get engaged so young, or at all,” adding, “I was fully preparing myself to be single for the rest of my life.” She is currently engaged to singer Joe Jonas.

She goes on to say that she believes her soul to be much older than her age (22, in case you’re wondering) and that she’s “lived enough life to know” when she’s found the person she wants to be with.

“I’ve met enough guys to know — I’ve met enough girls to know. I don’t feel 22. I feel like 27, 28.” When pushed to elaborate on the “girls” part, Turner continued. “Everyone experiments. It’s part of growing up. I love a soul, not a gender.”

Turner didn’t label her sexuality one way or another.

Just 55% of Americans believe LGBTQ people “face a lot of discrimination”

Just 55% of Americans believe LGBTQ people face a lot of discrimination

With rising support for marriage equality and the LGBTQ community comes a bit of a distorted view on the issues of discrimination those within the community still face.

According to a new report from FiveThirtyEight, “only 55 percent of Americans believe that gay and lesbian people face a lot of discrimination in the U.S., down from 68 percent in 2013.”

But those numbers may be skewed, depending on how the person responding is surveyed. According to the same article, a 2014 report “found that Americans were 14 points less likely to say gays and lesbians experience a lot of discrimination when responding to an online survey than when a pollster called them.”

What’s more, an increasing number of Americans seem to be believing the idea that fighting for LGBTQ rights is largely unnecessary. A 2017 Gallup survey found that 46 percent of people do not think “news (sic) civil rights laws are needed to reduce discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender people.” A 2018 survey from PRRI revealed that 49 percent believe the U.S. “has made the changes needed to give gay and lesbian people equal fights with other Americans.”

It’s nice that people believe LGBT citizens have been given the rights to make them equal with other Americans, but it’s simply not the case, especially when you consider that new rights don’t always mean increased acceptance. In fact, anti-LGBTQ hate crimes rose 3 percent in 2017, according to the FBI. Of the 1,470 victims who “were involved in 1,249 separate bias incidents,” close to 60 percent were against gay men and 25 percent were against “a mix of LGBTQ people.”

The number of hate crimes in the U.S. against those in the LGBTQ community has increased every year since 2014.
