    With my close friends, of course I know. But with the wider circle of friends and acquantences, I just don't know.

    Being gay or not being gay is so well prevalent and accepted in my hometown and many of the places I've lived, and where I currently live, I just don't notice.  And it's more than that: there are many single people, well into their 30s and even 40s, that being uncoupled doesn't mean being a 'confirmed bachelor" as it used to. And also, having close same sex relationships don't carry any particularly special meaning.  Unlike how two women who lived together up to the 1960s. where "sisters" or "cousins."

    Its just like how gay and lesbian issues cross over with transexual issues.  LGBT being about human sexuality.  And in that way, I don't see the struggle for LGBT as distinct from all our struggles, "straight' and otherwise, against conservative religious mores and distinct.

    Simply put, you and I are brothers.  Your fight for equality, life and liberty is not your fight.

    It's our fight.

      you may well not know in an extended circle where you don't know folks as well or see them as often, whether they are gay or straight. These days, really, it matters so little outside of strict religious communities and certain deeply red states, I'm not surprised that you don't know and don't care, and that's a GOOD thing.

      I mean if Danny Trejo was a 9/10 on a scale of ugly, this guy was at least a 7.5.

      But he really lit up when he saw the old thigh high fake snake skin go-go boots my GF was selling. he called his partner over to see them.  

      I don't even want to specualte what he was going to do with them.
