This is a good topic. Now I have heard of this before. And from my expiriance. I would say yes.. To me. the main question is Who Can You Trust As being a Friend to someone. For the most part with my expiriance. This type of female was very much so a Gossipper.. She Ran her mouth.. all the time. Nor did I ever give her anything to talk about. It just so happend. It was a male That Gave her something to talk about. I mean He did say he was 48yrs old married up with a 24year old female. And this female talk about for at least two day's Straight. Well After the Whole gossip Situation. This Female,Went Behind my back and told This man that I was talking about him and his wife and her cooking, And Some other thing's that added on to that.. I had to cut her loose real quick.. But everyone is diffirent. So I would say that women and gay men they can gossip .If You only give them something to Gossip about. However, It's all way's up to that person.
