  • People shouldn't judge two girl or two guy friends for hugging and whatnot, it's a sign of appreciation. The problem rather lies in those who sexualize two friends, I largely see it with two male friends a lot which are being fetishized. That's not "homophobic", you just shouldn't fetishize anyone, full stop. The whole reason people are uncomfortable with PDA actually comes from this fetishization. If we stopped calling men who hugged each other gay and joke about them having sex with each other, they wouldn't be grossed out by it. The exact same happens if you fetishize a gay person with a friend of the opposite sex... they do not like it either and because of those people, become uncomfortable getting platonically intimate. The same is even said to an extent to straight guys/girls always being told that they should both date each other because they hug and hang out a lot. Like no, they're friends, don't ruin that. Even if one catches feelings, that can ruin both of them entirely.

    That image you sent is pretty sexual though, not even siblings get that close in open water. And nose-to-nose? That's not platonic intimacy.

    If we're talking about actual gay couples and not just friends, whatever, as long as it's PG. Whether it's a girl and guy making out in public or getting touchy-feely, many also find that gross. PDA is fine, but people need to learn to respect the people around them. Do whatever you want in the privacy of your own home.

    • Yup agree on the PG!

  • Not really. I’m not a big PDA type personally. Like I’ll hold hands with my boyfriend and maybe give him a quick kiss. But to each his or her own. If PDA’s are your thing go for it.

    • No I wouldn’t do it either I hold my girlfriends hand but that’s it.. pda doesn’t bother me, I just wouldn’t do it

  • Any PDA is poor taste and it says a lot about the individual a loud and obnoxious look at me kind of person is not a confident one, children naturally do that seeking parents attention, look at me.
    I do understand that any of us with their partner and they might have a moment but NOT a scene.


    Same or opposite sex it does make me feel uncomfortable especially if it’s two men. I find the male anatomy to be extremely disturbing and I won’t like seeing or imagining myself in that situation.

    • Can we at least loose the beards, come on bro work us here lol

    • Work with us

    • Hahaaaa yeah I hear ya

  • Doesn't bother me a bit, I'm friends with several couples.

  • Not in the slightest... sure is better than seeing anger, prejudice and hate in public.

    • Very true

  • I know how to look away/walk away

    • That’s fair

  • Disgusting! Within 50 years everyone will be gay the way things are going in this world.

    • Haha naw that won’t happen

  • Very much! Yes. Doesn’t gotta be public In movies too. I’m still scared from South Park as a kid.
    They never raise awareness of how severe straight men really simply feel not at most comfortable around gayness. I never want to see a guy and girl make out in public either. I love how they’re promoting this on commercials all the time now, but is that the world now. The commercial could be a Coca-Cola commercial starting with a close-up of the drippy bottle of Coke. Next thing you know it’s pouring into a cup and then boom, dudes kissing! And then Coca-Cola says “we’re gay now (for money)”

  • *laughs in lesbian at the ridiculous answers*

    • the selective homophobia and misogyny is, well, as expected. *slow clap*

    • 🤣🤣🤣

    • 👍👍👍yeah true

  • Yes, I really don't want to see that shit! (But I simply turn away and don't otherwise express my feelings.)

  • Doesn't bother me one bit.

    • Me too

  • I just don't want to see any kissing... straight or gay all the same

  • No. I love watching lesbian PDA.

  • Not uncomfortable but jt just isn't tge same as opposite sex affection. It's like seing brothers or sisters.

    • Yeah it is the same

  • Yes, especially among lesbians, I can't insult them when I'm inside the university.

  • I'm getting more used to it.
    I live in a rural area, so I do not see that very often.
    I just look away and continue on my way.

  • No unless they're like making out but I would be uncomfortable no matter their gender

    • Yup agree

  • No. It doesn't bother me. I mean why should it if a man and female don't bother me when they do it? It's the exact same thing

    • Yeah I think so too

  • Yesh.

  • Watching two girls having sex is hot. Two guys not so much.

    • I get that

  • Not at all, i simply don't give a shit

  • Nauseating - I quickly avert my eyes

  • I love it 💕

  • Although I am not a big fan of seeing guys kiss…. whatever, I just look the other way. It is their business.

    • Yeah that’s fair
