Ms Isinbayeva told the meejah afterwards that she now wishes to get married and start a family. I have advised her of my availability.

 But muttley surely that would be forcing your heterosexuality on everyone else? Well on her anyway I think she might snap you in half like a twitlet.

I wonder if people who claim to have had these experiences of "Hello, I'm Tom, I AM GAY" actually have or is there a bit of urban myth about it all.

There's a lot of talk about "them" and the way "they" behave, not a lot of specifics.

I’ve worked for years at gay pride festival’s and thinking while folks might have meet someone once who said they were gay like crashie said but thinking a lot of comments on this thread is more about folks own fears than anything based in the real world. Most gay pride stuff is just a festival yes there are rainbow flags everywhere but other than that it’s just like any other festival just with less good music at it and more information about various community things and group’s from own experiences.

This Russian lass has the right to say the protesters are wrong just as the protesters have the right to protest. The whole thing makes me thing of a episode of family guy when the mayor makes a nonsense law about marrage that was gay bashing so everyone would talk about that getting angry and not his various mistakes.

I have friends who happen to be gay, but no 'Hello, I'm gay' friends. People who define themselves by one thing and bang on about it constantly and irrelevantly are quite dull, IMHO. I try to avoid mixing with too many members of my profession for the same reason; dull, dull and dull again.

I missed preachy vegetarians in my list above; 'hello, I'm vegetarian and you should give up meat because...' I've known one of these; bright boy but no social skills; for all he knew when he started his diatribe, I may have been a vegetarian myself.*

* I'm not; I like vegetarian food, but as an accompaniment to meat.

Some people are footballers, some are runners, some play golf or collect stamps. Some people make their pastime 'being gay'?



As someone else said... really?!  You sound like the pope.

The great thing about the pastime of 'being gay' is you can do it at the same time as other pastimes. Running while being gay, playing golf while being gay. Brilliant multitasking.

Phil one of my faverote past times is breathing it's a simple chose on my part and annoy's to many people.

did Kafeeg write:  "I will ALWAYS push my sexuality in your face and everyone's face"

doesn't that add support to the OPs comment, or am I missing something?

16/08/2013 at 15:22

Dustin, yes, you're missing the bit where we explained what pride movements are for and what they hope (eventually) to achieve.

16/08/2013 at 15:25

right, got it, I think...the quote seemed to suggest its all the time, rather than through those movements.

Well, you'd have to see it as a sort of long-term project for future generations, I think, and the parades (which don't appeal to me personally though I can see why they're a good thing) as the most prominent manifestation of it. But that is the general idea, not so much an aggressive 'in your face' as a response to 'can't you just go and be gay somewhere where I can't see'.

The bit you quoted doesn't mean 'unsolicited, as soon as I meet people', which is what others were suggesting, it means 'whenever you put me in a situation where I'm required to hide something about myself so as not to offend your sensibilities'.

Recently we were at a concert and my BIL said to me - that's my gay friend Colm...(mmmm ok) and then the guy walked over to me and said *hello - I'm Steven's gay friend Colm* - so it does happen

Maybe they're just redressing the balance?

For many years, seeing straight people do things that weren't accceptable for gay people to do - kissing or holding hands in public, getting married etc. must looked a bit like flaunting from their point of view.

Most people are staright where others can't see them so why do gays have to be different, be as gay as you like but it's just like being straight and it's nothing to flaunt

What if there are loads of gay people actually not really being very gay at all, just more of them than you thought there were?  You'd never know!

That’s a strange thought hang on if they don’t all identify themselves to us normal people how can they tell each other what they are? I think there being a special day they can all meet up and be gay together might work you know like with gardener’s all meeting up at a flower show every now and then so they can talk about vegetables and celebrate their clematis and take pride in it?

Sounds a bit gay to me, wouldn't have that in Russia would all be in prison.

When I was 17 and at college, this lad introduced himself to the group stating first his name and then "and I'm gay".

Unsure of the situation I said nothing, however, another guy immediately stood up, stated his name and said "well I'm not, you..(I'll pass on the fusillage of insults he hurled at the guy)

What was that all about?, I enquired. "he's on the look out".

It seemed that gay people are vastly out numbered by 'straights' and the only way to meet others like themselves is to broadcast the fact. 

I decided to stick to fishing. Safely out of the way.

 I always find it amusing that blokes who arn't gay just assume that gay men will want to sleep with them. It's as if gay men can't control themselves and instantly want to b*gger something anything with a hole. Might explain why there are no gay pride events on golf courses?
