Okay, so I want to start by saying that I hate that phrase because I feel like it is a back handed complement.. like the person is saying “if you weren’t gay you wouldn’t be my best friend.” Why can’t the person be your best friend first and then their sexual orientation is second (or third or whatever) to that. It’s like if someone told me I was their black best friend… like what? If I were white I wouldn’t be your best friend anymore? Would I fail that standard? Do you have too many white best friends so now you need a black one to even it out? Anyway, back to the original phrase, it doesn’t apply to me so as long as it doesn’t bother the person being called it, then I guess it shouldn’t bother me.
On that note though, I have a very good friend who I absolutely adore and who happens to be gay. A few nights ago though, I had the weirdest dream that he told me if he weren’t gay he would totally marry me hahaha and I was soooo flattered. It was like the best dream complement I had ever received. Made my life.
