My latest rant about people

… Am I so thoroughly out of touch with reality?  Well, I am but…

Okay, so I was talking on IRC.  And we were covering dating and such and someone asked me out.  I said, “Well, are you a guy or a girl?”  And the response was “Excuse me?  Why does that matter?”  I said “I don’t date guys.”  The person said, “Well that’s just a bit sexist!  You should love people for who they are, not their gender!”  I was like “…wha?  I’m straight and male, I. don’t. date. guys!”  The other person said, “You seem almost proud of your sexist attitudes.  You really need to work on that before you even think about dating someone.”

Am I THAT out of touch?  I really hope this person was trolling because where I come from, having a sexual orientation is NOT sexist!  I’m not pansexual.  And I’m sorry but it really does matter to me what sort of genitals you have.  If that’s sexist, then sign me up for some old-fashioned bigotry ’cause I ain’t budging on that.

    It’s likely that the person was offended that you asked their gender and the conversation went downhill from there. Either that or you got seriously trolled. Or perhaps they actually meant it.

      Or all of the above, somehow. It is the internet.

    To be clear, I shouldn’t feel bad about not being sexually attracted to all people, right? I didn’t think so.

      Yeah, no. Feel attracted to whoever you feel like.

          Just make sure you do it in a nonsexist manner.
