this is a ridiculous assertion. listen... i have a gay friend named rick. rick has been in the monogamous same sex relationship for 4 years now. due to where he lives he can't be legally married, and they have no children. whose family will he put a photo of on his desk? what he has is a photo of their dog, in stead.<quoted text>
The gay people/couples I know, do all of the above. That is not announcing sexuality.
when they walk down the street can they hold hands, or walk with their arms around each other without drawing stares from the crowds? can they kiss good bye at the train without someone making some sort of stupid comment either to or about them? if they were a male/female couple they wouldn't even draw a glance, but as they are two men, everyone seems to believe that it's their business.
