Gays are people. Treat them like you would a woman who made an unwelcome advance. "Thanks, but no."

yes correct. as i said i am not opposed to it, but plenty are, and if you do things to make people know you are gay, then you are seeking trouble.

Frankly, in that regard, you're nothing but a re-warmed Nazi.

You SHOULD be ashamed of yourself.
That is so true. Reverse racism at its finest, though homosexuality is not a race...the principle still stands.

Is it "reverse racism" to continually point out that the Klan are racist?

Ah, but I accept any advance I get from a woman.

The point is that those things SHOULD remain private. It annoys me to see either homosexuals OR heterosexuals displaying affection in public. Get a room...even to the extent of holding hands or giving hugs.

I like the Japanese form of greeting, where they bow to each other. They don't need to TOUCH each other to greet each other.

To start, I wish you wouldn't make this about you, because it's not about you. It's not about your issues with public affection. And it's not really about public displays of affection. It's about heteros engaging in a specific behavior that is deemed unacceptable coming from homosexuals.
