    lol... talking to a westerner might not be much of a problem... but in my culture, when someone calls me bro, it just reeks of straightness....

    I've got to admit, I didn't like it when my own brother called me that. It really does seem to me to be a super-straight appellation.

    Well, I suppose you're right... My high school was all about 'fag' and all, so really don't want to go there again...

    I hate being called "bro" or "dude" especially by my own brother. I think it's the familiarity aspect of it. I had a similar situation at high school. The other kids called me by my nickname which I liked, but we had a teacher who tried to be cool and down with "the kids". Whenever that teacher called me by my nickname, it just made my skin CRAWL. 15 years later it still does. It's creepy.

    You all probably know the kind of teacher I'm talking about because I think every high school in the WORLD has at least one teacher like it. Typically a middle-aged man who refers to the students by their nicknames and talks to you like you're "best buds".

    That reminds me, I hate being called "bud".

    In Australia, it's quite common for a man to be called "mate" by a total stranger - that gets on my nerves.

    I can't explain it, but both "bro" and "dude" make my hackles rise. In certain contexts, and combined with certain kinds of sentiment they will make me hate the person who uses them towards me. I don't think they're particularly straight though, I mean plenty of "straight acting" gay guys use them as part of the extremely false hetero-drag they perform to signify how "normal" they are and as part of their hook-up routine. Actually excessive use of them always has my gaydar bleeping like crazy.
