It's great that you can admit you're gay. I applaud you.

However, something is flawed here. "Gays seem more interested" ... "giving up old stereotypes."

Apparently not. You're stereotyping yourself when you say this. Also, I've known a considerable number of gay people and they were just like the normal population: 85-90 percent unbearably non-cerebral, and the other 10-15 percent fairly tolerable, with only the top 5 percent being pleasant to be around. Unfortunately, intelligence ratios do not discriminate with regard to sexual preference.

Again, stereotypes.
