(It sure doesn't affect my opinion of him.  He's such a total jerk
and a conspiring creep that I haven't had to consider anything else).

Funny, isn't it?  Those people who *allegedly* suffer the most dis-
crimination seem to be having the most fun, if you can call it that.
If I were gay, which I'm not, I could get all the boyfriends I want.
But being heterosexual, I would very much like to have women friends
(just as friends mind you) for ordinary social purposes, yet it's not
that easy.  I'd guess the gays are much more liberal with their multi-
friendships than straight people are.

Another funny thing - I'm an ordinary English/Welsh/Dutch White person,
and I've had plenty of White friends, and an equal percentage of Black
friends given the number of Black people I've known, but I've never
had a friend who was gay or lesbian, as far as I know, and I think
I could tell.  I can only guess that the gays are very clique-ish,
or their brains are wired differently than non-gays.
