Read the article to find out. Hard to believe no one posted this yet...sorry if duplicate, I did search :

This may explain a lot of what's happening. I lived in San Francisco for a decade and had many gay friends. But they were in theatre and the arts, made delightful contributions to the City.

And the number is ONLY 10%.

So much for the lavender lie that 10% of the population is homosexual.

No. I'd prefer the Smithsonian (The Constitution, Bill of Rights, Declaration of Independence and so, so much more) survive.

I don't think I'd object to a neutron bomb, or an Egyptian calamity though...

I think the only problem for “gays” is that they identify as such, because this draws them off into a sort of special world that is not necessarily a nice one. Since we’re talking about men, appearance is all, and when men decide that another man has gotten too old or too uncute or whatever, the latter man is dumped.

I think that’s one of the things behind the “gay marriage” stuff, because gay men want to know that somebody at least theoretically has to stay with them. On paper, if nothing else.

When I lived in SF, most of my best friends were gay men because they were artistic, fun, may have been very leftwing but really didn’t care (unlike my liberal female friends, with whom you could not maintain a friendship unless you were a pro-abortion liberal nutcase), and were also very loyal and kind friends.

So I think we have to distinguish simply between the homosexual guy who lives down the block ... and the Obama oriented political activist. The problem, to me, is the term “gay,” because it’s like “black,” it doesn’t describe a reality but a politically manipulated position.

Parasites go for the host’s most vulnerable spots. In Texas a 2 mile circle around the Capitol in Austin is the target area. They can organize a demonstration within minutes and even if there’s only 5 or 6 of ‘em they’re sure they’ll be on TV that evening.

You are correct. The majority of the collectivist movements during the 20th century were lead by them.

Collectivist control freaks goes hand-in-hand with sexual freaks.

its not gay friendly that attracts them

it’s that homosexuals like to hang and bang together..especially the men

the lesbicans may like the social gathering crap more...venting and communing

but for fags it’s the sex...till they get too old and wrinkly and don’t too many get old really

homosexual women do but not the men so much

i’ve been around this forever...50 something years

New Orleans was the big queenie area for us

then midtown Atlanta and Montrose in Houston

now it’s anywhere really ...homosexual women like woodsy outdoorsy crap

Asheville NC or Missoula MT

I always heard Providencetown was like nearly all gay..like Fire Island once was

and so forth

even Nashville is very very homosexual now

hell..bucolic Leipers Fork where I live near 30 miles south of Nashville is lesbian-ish now

it’s their day...now if they would just shut up and mind their business

when you make society’s most neurotic segment a victim class then you will have your hands full

SF also stands for Santa Fe...gay friendly since the ‘90’s when AIDS was very expensive to treat. NM, one of the poorest states in the country got to pick up their tabs.

You know what your problem is(gays)

You have objectified yourselves as creatures whose sole thought is so consuming that you’re seen as pathetic creatures without a 1st name and the fullness of your identity.

Being gay is your identity?

I’m suppose to care?

I never use the words “gay” and “friends” in the same sentence. You lay down with dogs, you get fleas. And the admonition against being unequally yoked applies to friends as well as spouses.

What were the main things the author claimed as signs of gays living in his area?

Gay bars and a bathhouse.

It shows what the “gay lifestyle” is all about. There’s nothing more to it than that.

Well now, livius, the homosexual guy who lives down my block wears a skirt to the supermarket...and he's ugly as sin. He'd never get away with looking so bagged out in San Francisco. Is he an Obama activist too? Not an effective one.
