Seems a homophobe is hanging out here, and spending a lot of time talking about how "gays do this and do that."

I've noticed that, of every obsessive homophobe I knew in high school, 2/3 of them have come out of the closet as gay themselves later in life.  I ran into one of them in San Francisco recently.  He had bashed one of the smallest gay kids in our high school several times, including pushing him down the stairs.

Just like "heteroman," he said that "gays are perverts, diseased and should die."  And lo and behold, here I am almost 10 years after graduating, and he's a big old nancy-boy queen traipsing around in tight black Armani shirts.

Got something to tell us, (self-alleged) "heteroman"?

I'm homophobic, sorry, I was just born that way.

Bri, that's very interesting.

But I don't think that most people who vocally bash gays are necessarily gay themselves.

My son Danny, who is gay, never did thash talk gays before he came out to me.

Peace,
Father of a gay son

Every minority is vocally (or literally) bashed. Especially in the development stages of a person's life. They feel they need to establish themselves relatively quickly (especially in high school) and will do anything to defend their position. In today's society sexuality has temporarily taken the spotlight that race once held, and therefore hate is directed towards any group that is not 'the norm' or heterosexual.
