Dear 100 Hour Board,
This question is in reference to question # Board Question #22433. Out of curiousity, for those of you who felt like female roommates napping next to each other was okay, would you have said the same thing had the questioner been a guy? I'm not saying I would advocate it, or that I'm condemning girls taking naps together/next to each other (man, this question is getting kind of weird)...I'm just curious to know your opinions regarding these apparently inconsistent social norms.
- Doesn't like to nap with anybody. At all.
I used to take naps with my female roommates all the time. We were so close...it was more like a sisterly relationship than a roommate one. We were excellent nappers together.
I can't see guys napping together very easily unless they're under the age of 5 or so...but I certainly wouldn't say they shouldn't. A nap is a wonderful thing pretty much however you do it.
Alright, so I will admit that the whole taking a nap with a guy is weird. I have often wondered this: why can girls sleep together and it be okay? For me, the idea of sleeping with another guy is just down right disgusting; never in a million years would I do that. Maybe it is okay for girls because there isn't such a fear of being homosexual. I think for guys, sleeping with another guy would give a homosexual idea and, when considering most guys are "homophobes," that just won't happen.
So, with that in mind, I don't know. I don't know why it is okay for girls and not guys. Mainly it is just a social perspective.
