Before I get into this I'd just like to state that I know many firefighters and cops and this is by no means a reflection on either profession. The reason why I know so many is my younger brother is a NJ State Trooper and most that I know are his friends. I have never once felt or experienced an anti-gay moment with any of them.
With that said, two firefighters from Providence, Rhode Island tried to sue because they claim they were forced to participate in a gay pride event, which they claim is against their religion...Catholicism. The lawsuits were thrown out of court and the most interesting thing is they've been fighting this case since 2001. That's a long time to hold that much hate in your heart.
The court heard that they had been asked to take part in the parade as they worked in an engine company that happened to be nearest the route.
Their lawyer said that they asked to be reassigned but the request was declined, and that during the event, they experienced sexual harassment from members of the public attending the parade. They said that they also received harassment from co-workers in the period after the parade.
However, lawyers defending the city point out that fire trucks often took part in city parades, and that it was a work assignment like any other – a point agreed with by Justice William Robinson.
Writing to members of the high court this month, Robinson said, ‘The respondents' appearance in the parade, solely as members of the Providence Fire Department, did not constitute a form of expression on their part. Rather, it was simply the accomplishing of a task assigned to an engine company of the Providence Fire Department.’

Straight Guys Stoned For Gay Sex
Here's another one about straight guys and gay guys. This one talks about how straight guys react to gay guys when they are stoned.
This happened on Reddit, on a thread titled with this: “Weed makes me temporary gay. Anyone else?”
Then this guy posted something more descriptive about what he wants in a man that I'm not quoting here, which set off many comments.
Maybe it’s the boundaries of your Ego dissolving when you’ve reached that ‘transcendent’ state, so your guard is down an your ‘true’ self rears it’s head. I’d be curious to how this would work with LSD, I’ve had friends come out or reveal/discover those feelings while tripping.
I know. It sounds really stupid. But there are quite a few and they sound honest enough. Dumb but honest. Most are too graphic to print on the blog, but you can read this yourself, here.
I think some men are just horny and getting stoned makes them even hornier. I've met a few at weddings...always at weddings...who pulled some interesting things on me.
Contrary to the typical stereotype of gay men starving constantly to maintain a body image...those like me who haven't had ice cream in years...many gay men eat to the point of getting stuffed. They LOVE good food. I have friends who talk about nothing but food, and it's even on social media. So here's a link for anyone interested, to vote on the best places to get stuffed. You can win something.
