A new study by the Center for Work-Life Policy think tank has found that 48 percent of college-educated lesbian and gay Americans hide their sexual orientation at work. About a third of them are leading "double lives," the report says--staying in the closet at the office while being "out" in their personal lives

Your response supports my position. Flagrant flaunting of one’s physical “attributes” is also disgusting at work. It’s just more of the “sex is the only game in town” attitude.
Believe me, there are lots of other things to be thinking about, and when one is on the job, sex is not one of them.
It’s not just gray, it’s been “silvered” or streaked with “silver”. Some of these guys go so far as to have their beards electrically removed ~ which is weird and can give you cancer. Not sure having face cancer advances their dating potential.
Please stay there and redecorate! Closets aren't all that awful but could use your help - take the "other half" with you to help, please.
.......and the problem is?
Woman do more harm than good by exposing themselves in the work place...and it’s puposeful. Embarasses me and I’m a woman. One young gal’s butt crack was so obvious I asked went up behind her and said your butts hanging out. She said, “I know, I could feel the draft”. So what does that say? They simply don’t care how flaunting their body parts affects others who are not comfortable with it.
I mentioned this at a company meeting...that I don’t appreciate it when I’m closing a sale and the customer gets distracted...and it’s not just the men, woman customers are offended and feel uncomfortable.
Yup. This is simply an “agenda” piece. It’s talking about college educated homosexuals. That would probably be less than 1% of the population. Actually the “48%” may even be a number that was pulled out of thin air. The agenda is simply to make it look like the poor homosexuals, even the smart ones, have to hide.
I’ve always taken that behavior (what they call closeting) to be an attempt by homosexuals to keep OTHER homosexuals from bothering them at work.
How many of our non-gay co-workers discuss their sex lives at work? Shall we consider their non-discussion as meaning they are "closeted" heteros? It should not be relevant to work.
There can be “shunning” if a homosexual is discovered. It does change how people look at them as people. Not always but it happens.
Straight women often view gay men as girlfriends in male bodies. There are similar interests and the safety of no sexual tension. These women don’t want to consider the gritty details of male on male sex acts.
” . . . 48 percent of college-educated lesbian and gay Americans hide their sexual orientation at work.”
And they say our kids are learning nothing in college. Seems to me they’re larnin’ sumpin!
That’s interesting...hadn’t even considered that. But it would make sense the sexual tension would not be there...that would also explain why a friend of mine, who has a homosexual for a friend might feel so comfortable with him. She has her own issues....major body issues as she fights being obese. humm-mm interesting....
But for me I don’t want to be around them....perhaps because I am informed of what they do practice....and it is a far cry from normal...no resemblance of in fact...and for that their minds get equally as twisted in how they think.
I really don’t care where a man puts his penis. But I care a heck of a lot when it becomes the core of someone’s identity and worldview, especially when they then believe they are so special that everybody ought to grant them special consideration in all sorts of matters because of it.
I believe what most people object to is not where gays want to put their penises, but their obnoxious narcissism and political push for forced acceptance.
DAMN STRAIGHT! I’m a bigot because I don’t want their flamer crap in my face every where I turn? If you’re pushing sex at work on a constant basis you’re a perv and a thug, period.
......because of where they park it and the perversion of who they park it with.
Let them stay there. If I were a deviant, I would want to hide it too.
I was dating a girl at work (big non-no) and I stopped by to speak to her. After I left, one of the women quipped “Forget it honey, he’s gay”.
I’m glad they’re in the closet.
I’m a single heterosexual (widow) who does not discuss my sexual orientation at work. I don’t want to hear about anybody else’s, either. Keep the zipper zipped and the mouth shut about orientation, whatever it is. I don’t want to know that the fat ugly guy who picks his nose wears women’s underwear.
