How can you tell real homophobes from gay (in-the closet) homophobes?

    "George Alan Rekers, a prominent anti-gay activist who co-founded the conservative Family Research Council, was caught returning from a 10-day trip to Europe with a male escort he found on Rentboy.com, which is exactly what it sounds like.

    [UPDATE: The escort now says Rekers is indeed gay, and that Rekers paid him to perform daily nude body rubs during their European jaunt. "It's a situation where he's going against homosexuality when he is a homosexual," the young man told the New Times, adding that Rekers -- who repeatedly asked for a move he dubbed "The Long Stroke" -- ought to divorce himself from his many anti-gay associations."

    According to Craig Ferguson, the more outspoken they are the more chance they are gay. The gayer they act the more chance they are straight smile

      yes - that crosses my mind from time to time when I hear some of the more outspoken ones because I wonder why the topic is taking up so much energy. (some) smile

      I'm not sure about your second sentence, but I sure as heck believe the first one!

      People who are secure in their sexuality do not care what other people do in the bedroom, and people who are happy themselves do not make it their goal in life to make sure everyone else suffers.

    Sounds like reverse psychology, a sad and pathetic, as it is really.

    The only reason citizen A has anything to do with citizen B's life or sexuality, is only for control.  There are some people who push their own moral values onto other people, either because they are religious or claim to know what is in the best interest of citizen B.

    It is absurd, foolish, demeaning, an infringement, moronic, destructive and should NOT be allowed or accepted.

    Just my thoughts. smile

    I am tired and bored with talk about gays and gay bashers.  Mind if I change the subject?  Now could we just talk about dominant-submissive types?  I saw that movie "Secretary" which really was a good and kinda funny movie.  But I know little about this kind of sexuality and would like to be enlightened.  Not that I am one or anything like that!  big_smile:

      Dominant and Submissive are simply words to describe both sides of sexuality, in one aspect. One of the two people involved in the activity is one or the other, while the other is one of the other.

      The likelihood two Dominants could engage in sexual activity, as well, as two submissive, would be negated by each other and not happen.

      There are always going to be a Dominant and Submissive, with regards to sexual activity. One always gives in to another, in some aspect.

      Just my thoughts on it. smile

      But, let's try not to get too far off topic. lol lol lol
