At 44 years of age, I could honestly care less who is gay or not, I have a boss that is a lesbian, Ive worked with other co-workers that are gay, and I've hung out with some of those gay co-workers outside of work. Being around homosexuals has never really bothered me (unless they are militant, but I dislike being around anyone who is militant about anything). What I am having trouble wrapping my head around is why the heck everyone else is so concerned about who is gay, to the point that they obsess over it, I've also noticed that more often than not it is women who seem to obsess over this. Case in point...A recent hire at work has some fairly effeminate mannerisms, and many of the women I work with have a running bet that he is gay...pointing out his style of dress as evidence, and I think one of them is actually pointing to the fact that she tried hooking him up with one of her friends and he declined the invitation as further evidence that he's gay... Keep in mind these are all professionally employed, college educated people (some with graduate degrees), age ranges from 25-38. Why do so many spend so much effort on this type of nonsense?
