    Would you mind if a gay friend called you by a pet or affectionate name?

    In private no as long as they know where I stand. In public I would mind because people are shallow and I need to keep up appearances.

    nope - I'd find it funny so maybe I'd encourage it - I call my fellow straight friend "boobear" and he thinks it's funny so there you go

    I have, and have had, gay friends that do. Doesn't bother me. I call my male friends "my love" or "darling" more often than I do my female friends :lol:

    Fair enough. Thanks for your responses. I'm terrible for this. I started off doing it sarcastically and now I'm almost compelled to say things like "hey hon".

    Don't care so long as we've established where we stand. If it's just banter, banter.

    I too would probably mind in public. I once had an older friend hug me and I felt so awkward. I faked it all the way but people were staring....

    May I ask why? Do you fear people might think you gay if you had one? I felt similarly when I was in the closet.

    They might feel like their masculinity is threatened or just feel uncomfortable. I suppose it depends on the relationship between the friends and the context.

    Awww. Why's that? I have a few. Honestly, you're not missing much. Bar our sexuality, we're not that different.

    Of course I would mind. I didn't spend six years in Evil Medical School to be called "sugar".








    ...but really, they can go ahead. I wouldn't mind at all.

    If its in a group of friends or in private, then no, i would even take it as a compliment. In public though, i would, but even if a girl called me "hun" in public with people we didnt know it would be kind of weird.
