    Certainly hasn't stopped straight guys asking about frags to "seduce the ladies" at least once a week. Live and let live...

    I dont know.
    I'm straight and all those homo- / hetero- phobic thread names just catch my interest even more.
    I think most of BNs are fairly open minded ( ) and might even contribute constructively if they are not spoken to.
    so, I'l still add my two cents wherever I feel so until somebody tells me to shut my face.

    Going on past threads, where issues of race, gender, orientation, and even religion have been discussed, I think just about anything is fair game if it has to do with fragrance. Fragrance can take conversations to unexpected places,

    I haven't seen "straight guys only" before, but I have seen "guys only" and "women only", so imagine if you wanted a thread where straight guys talked about fragrances they liked on women or something ( I've seen variations before ), it should just be fine. Ask the mods if in doubt, of course.

    My point is if someone tried a new scent that I haven't, I wouldn't exclude anyones opinion.

    With all respect, I see no point in this thread.

    I'm straight, and not even a bit interested in "only for gays" threads. Of course they have their subjects in which they're not interested in my contribution. I just leave them alone and focus on my interests.

    Also, threads about "which scents are attractive to XXX/YYY/ZZZ" are mostly pointless too, due to the high subjectivity involved.

    Why to bother?

    I suppose this one will be locked very soon.

    Happens all the time. If a straight guy doesn't care to know what I think looks or smells sexy on him because he's looking to attract women rather than a gay guy, I'm not offended. People are always wanting feedback from their "target audience", straight, gay, or otherwise; I don't think it was meant to make anyone feel excluded. ( A woman posted on that thread; I don't think anyone minded ).

    Very well put; hope they lock this thread.

    Good on ya Jack... Basenoters are reasonable (or reasonably reasonable) folks and it's nice to see a slight faux pas corrected... no harm done, right?

    I don't want to offend anyone. "I just kinda asked the question without really thinking it over." Great answers given; I wanted it stopped before it got ugly or it was taken wrong.

    It was basically I’m straight and never see a straight only thread; I think a straight only thread would be rude. And lots of gay only threads. I got a few great answers ant want it ended.

    I seen lots of post like that and never the "other way around." I just asked what came to my mind and should have thought it out. The answer was simple as stated by Galamb

    Well... glad your expectations could be met.

    A little good-natured joking about won't hurt... I even think we could riff on the "blue eyed blondes only... what scent would you like them to wear" on the off topic humor area, if you're game?

    Honestly, different cultures and different lifestyles have varying but sometimes converging points of view on scent... that's why Basenotes is so cool!

    lol, I'm married now but when I was single they could have worn any frag. I do like my wife to wear nice stuff.

    From what it looks like, it seems like you don't like gays. Other wise you would just ignore the "gay only" posts. I'm not gay and I still participate in them and try to give my insight. You just need to not look at things with a homophobic perspective.
