I do find it fascinating that straight guys are supposed to be totally okay with being naked around gay guys in showers/locker rooms, but no one would ever have that expectation of women regarding them having to share showers/locker rooms with straight men. It's a very strange double standard that seems to completely deny reality. I've had extensive experience living and working with openly gay men at an intentional community and the fact is that it can be awkward and uncomfortable and some gay men most definitely do enjoy the view (just as straight men would enjoy the view if they shared a locker room with women). As usual, errand is ham-fistedly addressing a topic, but there is something to it, and if it makes a straight guy uncomfortable that doesn't mean he is homophobic.
