hey folks, this is the castro neighborhood. if you really love me, will you please come together and act respectful and think of me. i mean, don't just use me like some common tramp. woody, put on your clothes for goodness sake. you made a good first step at changing the world, but anymore you are just looking foolish - not, not foolish - you are looking like you are crazy to be honest. and george, for goodness sake, you come across as some mean old man. if you love me, please don't do this to me. this tension is not good for me. put on your clothes and let's be friends again.

Imagine, because I'm gay I had to part with my great Euro heritage, my patriotism, and the American issues I worry about the most. My own preference in flags are nationality ones, not sexuality ones. The Greek and Italian ones are preferred. What, I'm a hater for saying this? No, I'm the same guy who just happens to be gay. Homosexuality is not a culture. We are also no more talented or goodlooking than straights. We've just been good at marketing the community as such, and some people have begun to buy it. Respect all people by rotating in other flags from other countries and cultures. We always talk about fairness to US. Well my proposal is fair to everyone!
