I and my husband are currently arguing because of a joke. Please I need some advice.

 

I and my husband are currently arguing because of a joke. Please I need some advice.

[Screenshot of tweet]

I knew my friend was gay and initially I tried to stay away from him but that friend  seriously told me to my face

“You know that girls don’t even like you. It is the same for me.”

From that day I fully grasped my place and we got closer and are doing well.

 

We are both shocked by the fact that  we share vastly different opinions concerning the joke about and so are currently arguing.  As people committed to an occupation that involves teaching people, we are so dumbfounded at our stupidity.

Since it is really late right now, we cannot ask our acquaintances for their perspectives, so we hope you guys will lend us your opinions. In the text above, the part “It is the same for me”, is confusing; So please help us understand.

 

Since people asked after the reason for our argument in the comments, I would like to add more context to this post.

I’ll conceal the gender and then tell you.

A: No matter how gay I am, just like other girls, you aren’t my type, so chill (so know your place).

B: I as well do not like girls , meaning that I cannot date women, so read the room ( You know you can’t get a girl yourself).

 

Shall we call it “The aftermath”?

Hmm… after reading the comments, it was interesting seeing your comments on A and B but I feel so bad that you all think that they are lacking.

Anyways, this was the basis of our disagreement, which caused us to be surprised and frustrated!

Since we aren’t biting and bickering at each other , you do not have to worry about us divorcing*.

Because I do not want to cause further conflict, I will also not disclose who is who (in the conversation above). However I personally think that I am the side that has the more logical stance.

Thanks to the people who wrote comments.

              Do the humans who relate to person “B”  think that being gay is someone who turned into one because he doesn’t have the ability to date a woman?

            • [+543] [-4]

              Just because one is gay, that doesn’t mean he will fall for all men.

            • [+375] [-6]

              Women don’t like you = does not mean you fall in love with all of the other sex. Even if you say that  your partner is a man, you are discriminating your partner*. I think A is correct.
