    1. It's true that the Gay Bashers often turn out to be closet cases. That makes them no less dangerous or prevalent. In fact, criticizing someone's basic biological nature from the pulpit is no different than racism. People are born gay. On the other hand, they are not likely to be born bigots. THAT is the crime, the thing that hurts people.

    2. It should not be illegal as an adult to ask another adult to go to your hotel room and have oral sex. Was there any mention of Payment? What is the bif fucking deal? Who here hasn't propositioned someone for a romantic interlude at some point ever in their lives. Go ahead and cast the first stone. When raising the flag of hypocrisy, it's best to avoid being one.

      I've always hated the idea of being turned down, so I always waited for them to make the suggestion. I probably lost out on a lot, but that's the way it goes.

        I'm sure they would have said yes! Most of the time people are just like you! Of course, in some circles (like horny closet babtist pastors and uniform-wearing gay men), people don't mess around with "names" and such niceties, there's no time for that.

        Still, I think the screwed up thing is that just asking someone if they'd like to go have sex should be illegal. A polite, "No thank you" is no much more civilized than an arrest.
