Funny story, while out with friends, a group of men were on line for the theater just in front of us. Some of them were very flamboyant. What's
flamboyant? Loud, sexually suggestive remarks every two seconds, feminine clothing, mannerisms (swishing in and out of line) even smells, I could go
on, but there was just no mistake, they were advertising and putting on a show and being especially vocal about how if people didn't like it,
they're just repressed.
I made a remark to my friends that I didn't like those kind of people. I was immediately accused of being a homophobe. This despite never having
talked about the subject to them in our entire time knowing each other. The funny part was that while we were discussing it, the guys we were talking
about picked up on it and confronted us, I unashamedly explained why I didn't like it, and to my surprise, one of their group said he didn't like it
either and actually defended me, while others from both groups started in on the why I'm such a bad man.
By the time we were allowed in, we were all getting along and talking with each other just fine. Why? because I explained that ANY man acting that
way would be annoying to me, whether they were gay or not. Same holds true for other groups, it's the BEHAVIOR most people dislike, not the
person's sexual preference, race etc.
So am I a homophobe?
