    Run, Ben, run!

    And thank you for driving this wedge issue. It's not one that will serve you well.

    Not really. None of the men (or most of them) in Prison who engage in gay sex identify as gay. Contrary to what some people want to believe, even out of prison, if a guy is horny enough, well, there are lots of straight guys who have done homosexual things under the excuse of "I was drunk" or just because they wanted a blow job and their GF wouldn't do it. There is that old cliche: "How many beers does it take a to make a straight Fratboy gay? A six pack."

    Homosexuality in prisons is only a choice if you're working under the assumption that prisons are coed. Otherwise, it's just a bunch of people making the best of a bad situation.

    Red meat for the base, not so for a general election.

    Being an uninformed, bigoted ******* is a choice, and Ben Carson proves it.

    There is not much in prison that involves free choice. :confused:

    Getting reamed with a shank at your neck doesn't sound like making the best of anything if you are on the wrong side of the blade.

    Yeah, and if you managed to go a day without getting shanked, you'll probably feel like celebrating. But since you don't have an abundance of choice while in prison, you take what you can get.

    If prison proves anything, it's that necessity is the mother of a whole bunch of things.

    Since he has zero chance at the GOP nomination, Ben Carson is free to spout his lunacy and drive up his speaking fees, like a good cynic.

    And in other news ... heterosexuality is a choice. Just look at monks.

    Zero chance perhaps.

    But I won't be surprised to see him as a regular member in the presidential debates.

    I most be an amazing exception, but there is not enough alcohol in the world to make me get intimate with another man.

    It does however tend to make women look better and has caused me some embarrassing awakenings in the morning. :eek:

    One night in Bangkok and the lines tend to get blurred once the booze starts flowing. Edit: Military humor isn't for everyone.

    ----------

    That's reassuring.

    "Some dude tried to get me pregnant last night while strangling me with a sock rope and probably gave me AIDS...but at least I didn't get shanked"

    I like it. That should apply to college campuses.

    well you say "lots" and phrased it like it's a common thing... honestly i haven't heard anything even close ...

    two male teenagers kissing as an experiment ? i suspect that can be called common, i know 2 who did it.
    a male/female being hot for teacher ? i know such cases personally
    a guy having a more than platonic relationship with a cousin ? know such a guy as well

    getting in bed because "too horny" or "too drunk" ? seriously i don't believe it. Unless of course the guy is bisexual to begin with.the beer googles effect on women though is true but doesn't make men more attractive. And had more than a sixpack.
    14 beers on a guys party night ? nope ... never crossed my mind.

    Being forced into a male only company can have an effect though but not necessary towards men. I experienced an effect myself being forced into 2 months of border patrol duty during my conscript service:
    During the 2 months you don't really notice anything(except guys turning loco). But after returning it was a rather shocking "where are all these beautiful girls suddenly coming from ? And where were they before ?"
    1-2 weeks later the effect was gone. It was like having beer-goggles while being sober.

    Being in a camp/region without seeing or hearing women for 2 months straight (we didn't have internet) really has a weird effect but it sure didn't make men more attractive.

    Are you gay and how many sexual encounters with other males have you had?

    What percentage is "lots"?

    I also have heard of the behaviour, maybe it's an American thing?

    I've been married three times, so it seems I steer towards the ladies.:D

    I had the same thought. I've never heard or witnessed anything like that.

    You wouldn't have, *you're not gay*.

    ----------

    So you really don't know then.

    It's definitely not only an American thing.

    This isn't the first time you've said something like this. Are you sure it isn't some sordid fantasy?

    I was in a fraternity and I'm pretty sure during chapter business meetings no one ever said ""How many beers does it take a to make a straight Fratboy gay..."

    Even during deep deployments, with no "queens for a year" in sight, nothing but men for months at time, wank material was the law of the land, not reach arounds.

    It's funny how you don't want to believe it. And yes, I'm QUITE sure it's not just a fantasy. ;)

    P.S. And just because you didn't do it doesn't mean "reach arounds" didn't occur.
