128. we're not asking you to be "attracted" to them...
we are just asking you to have compassion in your heart to help win equal rights for all, and make the world a bit more tolerant for your children. I assure you, there are gay people like you. There are straight people whom you abhor, I assume. There are gay people who are black white red vote Green, Dem, Repub. They live in the North, South, East and West. Tehy live 1,000 miles away from you and probably down the block. Some are open, some are still in the closet. You may like NASCAR, there are gays who like NASCAR. Football? Check. All I ask is not to boil a person down to the gender(s) of the people they choose to have sex with in the private of their own homes, and to realize that for every leather-wearing, YMCA-dancing "flamer" (and I love them too, because I celebrate diversity), there are at least 50 more getting up in the morning, putting on a suit and tie, making coffee and driving to the office.
