I don't. "Homophobic" is a word that smug PC undergrads throw around to make themselves seem enlightened and tolerant. Keep trying to categorize people under *isms and I'll keep on not giving a fuck. You can't get inside my head and find out what my prejudices are, and even if you could, they might change at any moment.
You admitted that you were wrong and now you've just gone full circle again and justified the homophobic attitude by saying it 'doesn't exist', well done. It's nice that you are trying to stick up for the people of your town, but come on you've got to call a spade a spade. How else would you categorize your towns and your own disliking the presumably 'gay' characteristic of a pair of APCs or a beige messenger bag? If it isn't homophobic then what is it?
Ah is there a rule? I just thought there was already so much going on on that side with the pocket and the button hole.
Actually I would've done the same as well. Not sure if there's a rule but a few weeks back Synthese posted a somewhat busy outfit with a blazer and rose pin on the pocket-square side, it looked too cluttered to me (though it was a nice interesting fit).
