    The rest of being "gay" is tribal and cultural.
    Look, I self-identify gay and I don't like disco either.  It doesn't mean I stop self-identifying as gay, or disrespect the gays who like disco.   I'm still part of the tribe, and I welcome our diversity in expression.

    Identity's a complicated thing.  Some aspects of it are purely personal and/or biological, some are social and/or conditioned.  That's fine.  Labels can be restraining, no doubt.  But I do think you're overreaching in comments like this, where you try to cordon off gayness into a particular cultural paradigm.
