OK. So maybe next time indicate that you have some broader understating.

Because you didn't do yourself any favors with the whole cliche "I must be a lesbian" gag.

It suggests a blinkered outlook -- along with the your keep it private and don't flaunt it comments.

Maybe my view is skewed, because out of all the gay people I know, my family, friends, colleagues etc. I've never met anyone who defines himself by being gay.

And if I did know "a couple of gay men" who fit that description, I probably wouldn't bother to mention it as anything that is significant or noteworthy.

But maybe that's just me.
