Are you irritatingly straight?

No, I don't think I am.

But that's not being irritatingly straight, you would never call them "irritatingly straight", that's the difference.

Well, actually I would.

Anyway, my point is that sexuality doesn't really matter much at all in the grand scheme of things, and it's annoying when it's brought up. The only reason I think this thread serves any purpose is because, if Oakley were to win, it would be historical (though, let's face it, there have probably been dozens of political figures that were still in the closet )

But you didn't, you used the word "macho" so I really don't think you would.

Yet when coming up with your titles you used orientation when describing one and not the other, so you're really contradicting yourself.

Just like when the first woman, black person, or any other minority won public office...

So, I chose not to be redundant by avoiding to use the "RE: irritatingly ______" pattern a second time, and suddenly my point becomes invalid?

Yes, because macho doesn't equal straight. There are some very macho gay men. So your whole premise reeks of the very exact thing you accused this thread of...

i surmised that by being "openly" gay, then that's flaunting.

you've gone back and read, and revised, and that's fine.

i find lots of people irritating. i'm not into self-ghettoization.

Some people find certain people of color to be "irritatingly 'black'" so . . .

Stereotypes maybe?

I think that's a good point. You can't be "irrititatingly" something you were born as-why should you deny what you were born as in order to not be "irritating' to others? What is irritating is behavior that is a result of deliberate choice and personality traits that are chosen and thus under our control. If a gay person happens to have an irritating personality that's an individual matter that has nothing to do with being gay-same goes for straight people.
