You mean like when someone previously said all gays didn't choose to be that way?

wow, my first post was an emotional reaction to the first couple lines of your OP. Now that I've actually taken the time to calm down and read the whole thing, I'm even more pissed.
YES gays are oppressed. NO it's not as bad as the Jews. So that means they should just shut their mouths and take whatever is handed to them? How is one supposed to improve their situation while not talking about it or even acknowledging the facts outside of their own home. The simple fact is straights have NEVER EVER been discriminated against IN THE SLIGHTEST. But if the government passed laws against straight sex and straight marriage, then we'd be in the streets talking about how great love with a woman is and how we wish to be free to pursue relations with the opposite sex. Suppose a black man wanted to marry a white woman in the 50's. Do you think the best way for him to improve his situation would be to never talk about it with anyone?
Now, I have to agree with you that I don't like to talk about the intimate details of my love life in public and I don't like to hear about other people's, but that goes across the board. If you were posting about how you get uncomfortable when other people talk about their sex lives, that's cool, but where do the gays come into it? YOu either don't like hearing about sex, or you don't like hearing about gay sex, either way, it has nothing to do with the greater gay community or the struggle for equal rights. Straight people can be lewd and in your face about sex too, so why are you only attacking the gays?
