Hey guys, just a little curious about how you feel about the gay community. Plus a little poll for the hell of it.

Are you asking about how I feel about gays, or how I feel about the community?

I think gays are great.  I think sometimes the "gay community" is a little nutty.  Sometimes a little too obsessed with pride, sometimes a little too PC, sometimes a little too controlling.  For example, my favorite advice columnist Dan Savage (who is gay) has received flack from "the community" on a few different occasions.  Once for coming out strongly in favor of criminal penalties for knowingly giving someone AIDS, and once for getting married.  Seriously.  Apparently they didn't consider him and his boyfriend the right "model citizens" to present the subject of gay marriage to the country in spite of the fact that they'd been together 10 years and had a son they'd adopted together.

Most of the individual gays I've known are pretty cool.
A bunch of gay collectivists, though... well, I kinda view them like any other band
which thinks the 'community' is somehow an independent entity.

That is what I was waiting for. I was hoping everyone would break this down into a discussion between gays and the "gay" community. Rillion I have the exact same viewpoint on the whole situation. I see the "gay" community as nothing more than a selfish special interest group. Meh maybe I'm just grouchy today.

Most "special interest" groups are annoying.  I agree with the general consensus already put forth here.  Sometimes I liken it to black people.  Black people are not different than white people, except they still think it's 1964 when they congregate in a large group.  Or they think they're on MTV.  White people are just obnoxious all the time. 

I just woke up.  It's not my fault.

Haha well it's the same reason I don't like going to gay bars or gay clubs anymore. It's also the reason I don't volunteer with the CDC anymore, well that is part of it anyways.

Yep. As a "community" the gay community seems to be part of the big government problem in this country. Outside of Outright Libertarians and Pink Pistols and other libertarian homos. They're cool as hell.
