    A straight buddy of mine complained about being in the “friendzone” with a woman we knew despite all the stuff he did for her. He said this when I, a gay man, was helping him study.

    Just to repeat that. He, a person attracted to women, complained about helping a woman who did not have sex with him in return. He did this at the same time that I, a person attracted to men, was helping him without asking him to have sex in return.

    I held my tongue. Sorry, I probably should’ve said something.
