Fag hags

alice's picture

Any body got any opinions on them? Good or bad? And by Fag hags I am generally talking about straight females who like to hang around with gay guys. I do not want to post my own opinions as I do not want people's answers to be influenced by what I have said. I shall post my own opinions near the end or the discussion.

Please can people who have posted thier opinions not be critised for them. If you don't like what someone has said, then by all means debate it, but don't hold what they have said against them or be mean.

Lots and pots of love
Alice

Fine by me

I'm fine with being friends with straight girls who like to hang around me (a gay guy) if and only if they don't go on and on about my homosexuality. What I mean to say is that I don't want to be friends with anyone who thinks they're cool since they are friends with a gay person. I wouldn't want any of my fag hags shoving my sexuality in my face; I'd rather she consider it a non-issue. Success! Haha, that's the clearest I can make that thought.

I hope I didn't lose you with the second sentence. I think fag hags can be beneficial for gays because they can be a shoulder to cry on, someone to lean on, someone to talk to, etc.

Don't forget the dyke tykes l

Don't forget the dyke tykes lurking. They never seem to have much of a voice.

So THAT'S what they're called

So THAT'S what they're called... I was talking with a friend of mine about this a while back and she couldn't remember what straight guys who hang out with lesbians are called...

I agree that it's okay as long as they don't have "ulterior motives" and they're not just hanging out with gay guys so they can say they have gay friends. I don't blame some women for being fag hags - it makes it so that they can hang out with men without having to worry about those men always wanting to get in their pants, and they can talk about guys and other "girl stuff" to boot.

like peas and carrots

I can't doubt that I greatly value my friendships with straight women, I think greatly value their friendships with me. I had one friend in particular who claimed she found gay men wherever she turned (the Empress, if you know my posts on the old site). I personally think she liked hanging out with guys and she liked even more being able to talk about guys with guys. We weren't as conservative as some of her girl friends and offered a different perspective on guys. I enjoyed bullshitting (I do it a lot, in case you're seriously reading this specific post), sometimes about guys, sometimes not, without the worry of sexual tension. It was a mutually beneficial relationship.

One might argue they every straight woman can benefit, just a little from having a gay friend. Queer boys and fag hags, as Forrest Gump would say "...like peas and carrots."

What About...

Queer boys who hang out with queer girls? Or vice versa? I hang out with a queer guy and some dyke tykes. Friendships with guys are great!
