RE: Homophobes-stand to attention!
Ok, please don't take this the wrong way. I am not at all offended by what you said. Other than one's behavior, or seeing them in bed, there is really no reason for you to know that someone is gay. However, when you show up at a party with your wife, how do you introduce her? It is assumed at that moment that you are straight "As if anyone had any doubt, I didn't", and you are not going to have sex with your wife infront of this crowd of people to prove it. It's just accepted that is who you are and she is your spouse. Well for me, I have a Partner of 16 years, when we show up at a party, this is who we are. And again we are not going to have sex in front of a crowd of people to prove we are gay.lol However if you did see me in Public alone, you might never know, or even suspect that I am gay. But again if you see me at a social gathering with my other half, your gonna assume I am, which is true. It's not that I am rubbing anything in your face. It's just who we are, and weather we tell you we are or not, your gonna figure it out, unless your the most brainless moran on the face of the eart, "which I also don't belive".lol I also understand why you might feel the way that you do. There is a portion of the gay population who in my own opinon "makes being gay look bad". I have seen it time and time again. You will never ever see my partner and I groping all over each other in public. That should be kept private. we respect EVERYONE, we don't want to see you and your wife groping all over each other, and we are not going to do it in front of you either. However I have seen the news on TV, where fags are hanging from the roof top, dresses like the biggest sissy's you have ever seen and just making themselves look like fools. We don't like it either. You must understand though in every group of people there are ones who make us all feel uncomfortable and this is no reason for us to decicde the whole group of people is like that bad apple. Think about it, I know you have heard the phrase "trailer trash", I have, I heard it most of my life. However there are some problems in trailer parks, but I also know some very good stand up people who live in mobile homes also. Then we talk about white people "white I happen to be" you have heard the phrase "white Trash", well I hate to tell you, there is some white trash out there, but the entire white race is not trash, only a small portion. So what I am saying with all this, is I can understand the reason why you feel like you do, but please don't assume everyone who is gay is going to behave the way you have seen it. I think now days it's pretty safe to say, that everyone know's someone who is gay, maybe at work, maybe the person next door, maybe even the guys posting and asking for help once in a while on the Benz website, sometimes they are right under you nose, and you don't even know it. I have tons of friends all over the place, in fact majority of them are Straight. And not just straight women, but men too. We have friends from every walk of life. Nothing phases me anymore. I have a very strong sense of humor. You will even hear me blurt out the word Faggot from time to time. So please know that I do understand where you are comming from, and I am not trying to put anything in your face, or force you into beliving anything you don't want to. At some point in time your gonna be somewhere though, and either two men, or two women are gonna walk in the room. You just gonna know, there not going to have to say anything, but you will know. Before you decide you hate them the moment you know, take a chance to introduce youself, they might be the next best set of friends you have ever met. And certainly when you do see them as a pair, rest assure they are not looking to pick someone up.
How would I know if they didn't tell me or make everyone aware of it? Don't want to be prejudciced? Don't brag about it or talk about it. I have never had a single conversation with anyone EVER, that I told them that I am a hetrosexual. Can't they keep their business, "their business"?[/QUOTE]
