I am from Los Anegeles
a bunch of hypocrites people dont you think.
I could not resist that little bit of quote-chopping.
Regardless, and for the rest of you here that, y'know, don't actually live in Poland and never have
, your opinion is quite worthless here.
I have never met a Polish person who was open to gays...
And then you proceed with talking about how you know gays who are Polish, and therefore not open to gays. So, they are only open to straight guys? That's exactly the sort of gay that annoys me greatly.
I know a lot of gay people myself, I have nothing bad to say about most.
I knew a few in the States... as distantly as possible, had nothing good to say about any. In fact, I'm still quite miffed at one of them for the great inconvenience he put me through after I punched him in the face for groping at my buttocks on my way to class.
I mean, I was studying in one of the most liberal towns in the whole SE... no way was I going to try to get the message across the legal way. Just bringing up a sexual harrasment suit against a homosexual there would probably be ruled a hate crime!
What the heck is this guy talking about? hahaha wow,, out of space...as far as i know, aids was first found in Africa, in hetero couples...ignorance is the mother of all stupid comments.
Allow me to extend your origin story a little further: Human
Immuno-Deficiency Virus originates in a separate and benign virus commonly found in the African baboon. How it then transitioned to humans- yeah. Details, details...
Don't forget that Polish mentality is a bit behind the rest of Europe.
Behind indeed... which could be seen as a bad thing by those who actually believe the mentality of the rest of Europe is progressing
Anyway, as far as being gay in Poland goes: there is a difference between being 'openly gay' and being 'obnoxiously gay'. Do you plan to wear women's clothing? Bad idea. Do you plan to have bumper stickers all over your pink car which will announce this fact to the world? Bad idea. Do you plan to attempt to flirt with/hit on men who you know have almost no chance of sharing your sexual orientation? Bad, bad, bad idea, and don't do it- I'd
get pissed off at you for that.
If you act like a human being to the effect that people don't really know that you're gay unless you tell them, it really shouldn't be a huge problem for you, depending on where you're planning on staying. In Warsaw or Kraków you should be quite able to happily live a life more or less free of persecution. In smaller cities, expect rude gestures/shouts and insults from people driving by if you're walking with another man on the sidewalk. Possibly they'll throw trash at you, even. Rural areas... you're not going to like it, so you hopefully don't have a reason to move to one.
