Yeah I fell for that. Mostly because I live with people who really are that confused. Like my friend who decided he was gay. Apparently it only too him 21 years and years of college to figure it out. Or this gem of a conversation:
Straight male friend (jokingly): "Hey ____ sleep with any hot chicks lately?"
Gay male friend: "Yes actually."
Straight male friend: "Well. I don't have anything sarcastic to say now."
You can never know what people are really thinking.
