    Kinda makes it sound like “there are aliens among us”.

    I guess it depends on (a) whether or not you are still working and attend company events where a significant other (speaking of alien language) is invited, or (b) you have a large social circle. Other than that, my dating life never came up at work (although others seemed intent on discussing their weekend activities), and my small circle of friends and I know each other.

    I want to wish all my friends, whether they be male, female, straight, gay, bi, trans, up, down, left, right, married, single, widowed, divorced, forward or backward, a HAPPY NEW YEAR and great blessings in 2024.

    I think we've all earned it.

    Living in NYC, it's impossible NOT to know gay people. Being a single working woman in NYC makes the impossible even more impossible. Totally "normal" around here, as if anything actually is.

    I agree, and think that this is probably true, regardless of where a person lives. It is not something that I even consider when I meet someone, or would make a difference to me if we were to become friends. Just like politics or religion, this is a personal thing with each person, and not a reason to like or not like someone.

    I honestly don't consider a person's sexuality unless they are pushing an agenda. One of my best friends is a gay man but he has always just been "John" to me. Somehow our sex lives have never been a part of the conversation.

    One of my gal pals has a gay granddaughter who is marrying her girlfriend next weekend. My friend is aghast and mortified; she thought "they were just close friends." I don't see why it's a big deal.

    In the YouTube “shorts” this morning, a video about Arsenio Hall having a real fit when a gay protestor asks why the show didn’t have gay celebrities on it. His response was epic.

    I think we are becoming a little more tolerating of the gay and lesbian society. Last night we were watching CNN's NYE Celebration and absolutely cracking up over what Andy Cohen and Anderson Cooper were saying. At one time we would've turned the channel if either of them or Robin Roberts was on, but necessarily now.

    That was in 1990. He got cancelled before they could cancel him.
