There are no topics in the gay bar diary that people couldn't solve in the WPR or the normal relationship forum because gay people are not creeps that need a seperate forum to address there relational needs in or problems in. We might as well have a forum for fat people so they can feel normal. The gay bar diary is enough already.
ALSO, I agree with the idea of the name being changed. The gay bar is slutty--which actually does fit most of the gay community anyways, but its too crude.
hey that wasnt very nice "The gay bar is slutty--which actually does fit most of the gay community anyways," you could spark a huge argument and trust me you wont win. also i understand what you are saying but i disagree and believe they should open that. and im sure if we name it "am i gay" the traffic in the site will double or even triple. which most people would like.
also movealong has a point. i only know 2 black people on here for sure and why would we open a forum or diary when we have barely have anyone discuss it with or even relate to.
