I really don't know any gay people who define themselves entirely by their sexual orientation.

I'd say that's more of a perception of straight people when they see gay people just living their lives and not making any effort to hide it or be unnecessarily discreet -- or if they're speaking out in any way about how they're being treated or considered. Because that's just flaunting it -- right?

Otherwise, we still live in a world where a lot of straight people define gay people by their sexuality and often in a negative way. I'd say it's a good bet that if anyone is defining themselves to some degree by their sexuality, it's a reaction to that.

And so what -- what difference does it make anyway?
