It's partly their own fault for adopting the word "queer" as normal. When I was younger the theme of gay movies like 1973's made-for-TV "That Certain Summer" with Martin Sheen and Hal Holbrook was: "We're just like straights except for our orientation". At this time the word 'queer' was still a deragoratory one - as it SHOULD be.

But shortly after that they embraced not just rampant promiscuity devoid of any sense of 'classic Platonic love'(and the AIDS epidemic that accompanied it) but flamboyant outrageousness too - and to this day too idolizing such freak-a-zoids from Andromeda like Lady Gaga. Small wonder it's taken them so long to get accepted.

If I had a child who was genuinely gay I'd encourage he or she to distance themself from the so-called militant 'gay mafia' and be gay in the context of normal, middle-class values as opposed to the kind of degenerates characteristic of the West Hollywood scene.
