I'm a gay dude.
When I was in high school, I didn't talk to straight men because of the way that the general popuation of them acted (arrogant, attention-seeking,
fake, machismo-addicted neanderthaals are words that would have been symmeterical with them in my opinion)
Now I'm a big boy and I realize that not all straight men are so bad. Most of them are pretty smelly, ugly, and socially repugnant, but there are lots
of great ones, too.
I realized that by allowing my initial and repeated perceptions of straight men to make my decision on the kind of people that they were before I even
met them, I was being IGNORANT
to the lifestyle, compusure, and good nature of milllions of straight men, whom I didn't know anything about,
simply because they belonged to a group that I percieved so repeatedly as being stupid, smelly and obnoxious morons.
Now, tell me, do you see the symmetry between this anecdote and the ignorance against the gay community? Or are you too busy smelling awful and
beating your chest?
