73. That's why I liked going to gay bars so much...
I'm not what's considered attractive or arm candy, and in straight bars nobody ever spoke to me.

Went as 'backup' and designated driver with one of my gay friends to check out a bar, and you want to talk culture shock?
I got chatted up by several charming, intelligent guys...even asked to dance!
I took another of my gay friends there, and same thing happened. We became 'regulars'...
and I wasn't the only straight female in the joint, either. Most of them received the same treatment, unless they were jerks (females can be jerks too).

I'm pretty sure it was because the sexual question was a non-issue from the gitgo, and we all knew it was non-issue, so we could just relax and be 'people'.

Either that, or you get a way less evolved clientele at straight bars than at the ones who cater to a gay crowd... :shrug:

BTW, SS...AutumnMist is indeed a very beautiful woman!
