    No, I wouldn't. I can't think of any reason why someone's sexuality would affect my view of them.

    Define "different eyes". This is situational, as a bisexual girl, because if a girl friend I found pretty announced herself as gay, I would probably have a pique in interest towards her, which is one way of seeing her differently. Or if a guy friend I found attractive announced himself to be gay, I would be like "oh ok so he's off limits then " and probably steer clear to make sure I don't develop feelings. If a girl said she was gay who I wasn't interested in i'd be like "oh ok" and just carry on as normal, as long as she wasn't hitting on me, in which case it'd be the same as if a male was hitting on me who I wasn't interested in, there'd be a polite rejection, that's all. And it'd just be as normal if a guy who I wasn't interested in was gay too. If it was a family member i'd be just as normal too. Maybe it's just because i'm bisexual though, I don't see any difference in the person, I've had bisexual urges since I was old enough to have such thoughts about anyone, and I don't think anyone else is any different either, it's just another personality trait, I think we make too big a deal of it, it's literally asking "what genitals do you prefer to have sex with", which to me is just the same as discussing a fetish someone has, it's just a part of their sex life, none of my business really unless I want to be having sex with them, or they want to be having sex with me, or both.

    Agreed with this. It is situational.

    They're worse than homophobic, they're bigoted idiots if they do this. No, I wouldn't.

    That is if they see them in a negative light purely based on homosexuality, of course.

    Course not, I have a pretty damn good freind that is gay, we regually take the piss out of him and joke about but I see and treat him just like anyone else... We go out for a drink etc just like I do with my other mates... Only thing I would say is sometimes I do have to watch what I say... Otherwise I forget all about it and just have a laugh

    The same dude actually came out to our group at the local Starbucks... One quick glance at eachother, Congratulated/ bro hugged and we went back to what we were talking about.... I don't think anyone treats gay people differently, not that I've seen anyway
