““Respectable gays like to think that they owe nothing to the sexual subculture they think of as sleazy. But their success, their way of living, their political rights, and their very identities would never have been possible but for the existence of the public sexual culture they now despise” (Berlant and Warner 563).”

    Bravo! “Respectable” “Gays” are despicably haughty, moralistic, normal, more conventional than any “Straights” have ever been. Their stance on Human Sexuality reflects how highly they think of themselves, and how careful they are to always appear like “such normal boys”, after all. They care nothing about the homosexual males suffering greatly throughout the World, always align themselves with the most authoritarian, and normative, America Feminists, and dream of married life, in the suburbs. Yuck!
