Meanwhile, this thread... is on thin ice. Being in the closet in LS is a legitimate topic of conversation, but the letters-to-Penthouse-style OP and lack of worthwhile discussion have me beginning a mental IBTL countdown, so participants, ye all be warned to be on good behavior.
This post made me check out stormfront.org (I never heard of it). These KKK idiots post some of the dumbest shit I've ever seen.

He might have just been acting like an immature college aged dude that was making a "I don't want you trying to get into my pants gay guy" kind of statement that you see on t.v. constantly and appears to be culturally acceptable in pop culture. He might not have actually been saying that he hates gays.
Are you really going to take what I said as agreeing with what he said? Please re-read my post and get back to me.
How is saying, unequivocally, that gays need to stay away from him, NOT saying he hates gays?
Come on. I have no opinion on him getting banned, but a comment like that - regardless of how "culturally acceptable" it is - is unadulterated bigotry.
I know your point is that he doesn't MEAN to be horrible, but that's exactly the problem. Cultural norms don't change unless someone speaks up about it.
