I know a homosexual man quite well. No one I know ever seems to have a problem with his homosexuality. No one even addressed that. It was his substance abuse (alcohol) that he has addressed. Everybody I know loves this guy now and is proud of him for doing right by himself.
In both issues, he kept them to himself (except for a small circle of us) and deals with them in a mostly private way.
He is a good example for all people.
If merely stating you are gay, is flaunting it - then I'm guilty. Ed does the same thing when he suggests that homosexuality is "perverted" and that his heterosexuality is great. He is a walking contradiction in just about everything he types. How many times has he flaunted his sexuality? Let's be honest - it's not about flaunting ones sexuality that bothers you and Ed. It's when someone flaunts their HOMOsexuality that bothers you.
The really sad thing is that he thinks the problem here is my "flaunting" and not his homophobia. Without his homophobia my "flaunting" would not bother him.
Now if you'll excuse me, I have to attend one of my many, many gay orgies for the week.
