This story is "icky" on so many levels.

Gay men have the right to love each other, but not in public restrooms. Isn't there a gay bar around Quakertown that they can go to meet, greet and share the love that has no name?

<<<<Fishing at the pier, I saw men from time to time hanging around the shoreline but never thought anything of it until a guy grabbed his crotch when I went into the restroom. It made me look twice, which he took to be my openness. When he came in the men room while I was peeing, I wasn't able to finish peeing I got shy! This was last summer.>>>>

and the next time you may have an encounter like this, notice the wedding band he is wearing. The person is masquerading as a heterosexual and contributing to the false image that most gay men are predators.

In Tyler State Park years ago they arrest something like 40 men in 2 weeks with video of them have gay sex in a deep secluded section of the woods.
And you know this how? You were either one of the 40 men in the video or you bought the entire series to add to your VHS collection of homoporn! LMFAO!

About a month ago, I was in my car eating lunch near the shoreline (pier). Minding my own business and this State Trooper drove out on the pier in front of me and turned his crusier around in front of me staring at me eating my luch. I consider this HARRASSMENT! It was near a Rest Room, but I assure you I wasn't there for anything (just to eat my lunch). Let me eat my lunch in peace. BTW, I was not eating a Hot Dog.

"Cogan drove toward a park bathroom about a 100 yards away and motioned for the ranger to follow.
"

Wait, the guy never actually even got to the bathroom? He was only driving in that general direction. The ranger was only ASSUMING that when he motioned for the Ranger to follow, it was for sex.

How do we know that he wasn't attempting to bring the Ranger to the bathroom, to point out to the Ranger, just how dirty it is???

That is harassment. Please tell us you did not change your actions that day. Did you stay and eat your lunch?

Pe-paw needs to direct his energies elsewhere (literally and figuratively). You know it's also possible he is having a mental problem. It is a medical fact, that many degenerative, aging health conditions also have sexual behavioral issues.
This gentleman's family needs to become and stay involved.

To "Larry Flint,"
He knows this info. about Tyler Park in Newtown for the same reason I or anyone might know. It was in the newspaper and it was also discussed on radio (I'm not absolutely sure of the latter, but I am sure of the newspaper reference). Why would anyone lie about that? And your defensiveness is because...?
