Is it a special club now?

Before I begin, let me just say I'm all for equal rights for every human being. I am neither racist, sexist or a homophobe. But I'm noticing that that this city has an extravagantly over-the-top gay community.

You're gay, we get it, and nobody's even shocked by it anymore, we've all come a long way. Hurray for us! I just don't understand why that one detail needs to consume your entire identity rather than just be one part of who you are. Are you really all that two-dimensional?

It honestly comes off as desperate and annoying for the most part. Why would men talk in an extra ditzy, air-head sounding voice and do the irritating finger-snap/wrist flick to seem feminine? What are you insinuating about females? I find it bizarre as a woman, like somebody talking with a British accent when they aren't British.

Nobody would think you're 'in the closet' if you didn't act that way. It's not about hiding who you are, it's about not becoming a stereotype.

Why are people of a certain sexual preference expected to flamboyantly dress/talk/act a certain way? Especially when it comes to suggestibility and promiscuity? Why has everyone in the gay community slept with everyone else... and seem proud of it? We complain about women who sleep with hordes of men, why should it be any different because it's considered a cultural thing?

Just be yourself, be an interesting human being who has more to talk about than one aspect of their personality. —Twitching with tolerance
