As an aside, it's interesting to note that for many here homophobia is real but ageism is not. If I were to talk about discrimination I've faced because I was gay, everyone would agree--the problems I face because I'm older are because I paint myself as a victim. The gay community is intensely aware of when it is being discriminated against, but it doesn't seem as concerned about who it might be stereotyping and excluding. Excluding people because of things they can't help--either age or orientation--is not good, wherever it comes from.
Also, in reference to the suggestion that another place besides Realjock might suit my needs. How often has a gay man who wanted to play football, join the military, become a priest, become a policeman, or even want to buy a house in a certain neighborhood, been told, "Sir, you might want to find a place which better suits your needs. You know, with your own kind." I think that some of the comments to me above border on this level of offensiveness.
Oh, I'm sure I'm wrong. I'm too oversensitive and I just play the victim--you know, wanting to be treated equally regardless of who I am. You know me, waah, waah, waah. Pretty soon I'll be like one of those silly people who think it should be legal for me to marry. I need to accept the fact that I'm not like everyone here and just stay in my place, with my own people.
