    Why do they need to mention he was homosexual? There are those who want to be seen and treated as being normal, they just have same love. Thus making such a big deal about their sexuality can make it look like they were nothing more than queer.

    One may well be a Bonafide homosexual, but that does not define me as a whole, and to only focus on that could and would takeaway all the good deeds I myself do out in the border community that I live., and that my LTR is something different.

    He was also openly 87 years old and in declining health, the article stated. A suicide is always sad but we can't know the physical pain he suffered.

    He seems to have done a lot of good in his 87 years and in his suicide note he acknowledges that his life had been a good one. May he rest in peace.

    Sad people can also get hooked on age. When in many ways it's only a number.

    I beg your pardon? Do you hardly ever post ANYTHING here where you don't use that ludicrous & laughable term of your own invention? Does ANYBODY here use or recognize that ridiculous phrase? You do not in fact incessantly define yourself here as a "bonafide homosexual"?

    Which is an affront & insult to most of the gay guys on this site. It's abundantly apparent that it's the ONLY thing that defines you in your own mind. And to the exclusion of almost all others. It really must be special to be a majority of one. icon_rolleyes.gif

    But Bobby Boo Boo, out here in the real world, one is indeed seen as many other things, and not just a Bonafide homosexual, and if I am ever asked am I bi; never gay. I can now reply noicon_exclaim.gif I am a Bonafide homosexual; not biicon_razz.gif

    I thought you said you had ignoring one! Yet you see what one has said? Sorry mate I am not responsible for your deeply embedded issues. icon_rolleyes.gif

    But even when one has sent you a compassionate comment concerning your boyfriends illness, you have turned that into a statement of hate, just to bastardize one. Sorry mate I can not carry your luggage for you, and unlike you have have been a out homosexual for all of my life, and not only been truthful to myself but others, my whole life So now that you have transformed from straight into a gay, you seem to think it defines you as a whole, when I do not, as you have lived most of your adult life as a straight married father, in a job that only allowed heterosexuals.

    Just as a person born deaf, and lived their whole life as a deaf person, would not see their deafness as defining them as a whole, or a disability. So why does it need to mentioned he was gay, and not just the good needs he did. I am also many other things, and not just a Bonafide homosexualicon_razz.gif

    Just as if I was to marry, I would still be a Bonafide Homosexual, but it would be just a wedding, and not a gay one.

    I'm sorry your actions in life exclude you from being a Bonafide homosexual! Just as they now exclude you from being a straight male. Remember gay once meant happy and bright, and someone was to change that, a seed has to germinate, and start to grow. Once gay meant homosexual, and now it means many things; even bi. But Bonafide Homosexual only means homosexual, and not bi. We have a right to an identity of our own, and do not need your permission to have it.icon_razz.gif

    ∆ This. In fact, if he were forbidden from using that ridiculous term, I doubt he would ever post anything at all. He thinks those of us who have never slept with a woman are somehow better than everyone else.

    Once again one has come to attack one to insight hate; oh dear lamb chops. When one has been very clear, being a Bonafide homosexual has nothing about being better, but different from straight and bi; where bi is neither or either. Not that I'm saying bi is a bad thing, it's just not a Bonafide homosexual. Just as a bear is not a twink, and bi is neither straight or gay, but they get to stand under both banner. Just as you get to stand under Bonafide homosexual, and gay.icon_wink.gif
