I agree that this thread should not be about sausage skins, but neither should it divert into the merits of the homosexualists, nor the safety of homophobia. Queue Vox with the "people on forums acting classy" bit.... Actually, I think gay men would be a lot nicer, and straight men wouldn't care. I think...
