Say it ain't so!

According to new statistics, the one place where, no matter what the law says, the Mayor will marry one gay man to another right on the steps of city hall, home of the annual Gay Pride Parade...San Francisco is perhaps the "gayest city in the world." Now there's some news. Gee, I'd have never guessed.

According to the Reuters report, one out of every five men is gay, an estimated 63,577 men out of a total population of around 764,000. The statistics also suggested that one quarter of the gay population is infected with the HIV virus, and that's down from recent years. It used to be 30%.

Yet another example of a "protected class" of people, who, demand ADDITIONAL rights and protections above and beyond what the Constitution affords any other citizen. A separatist group that is a financial drain on the system in one way or another. Equality is not enough, and it never will be.

Why must "gay" men be "gay" first? Why is it anyone's business but theirs what the hell they do in their bedrooms? Why do they have to be a "gay" police officer, "gay" truck driver, "gay" politician or "gay" anything? Why can't they just be a police officer or truck driver? How does being gay have anything to do with how you earn your living and why should it be a prefix to your title? It's like me calling myself a "bald" 911 dispatcher. One has nothing to do with the other. I don't affix "straight" to any title I hold.....including the title of "man". My sex life is MY business and should remain so. Why should theirs be any different?
