    This is why the fight here is not over. I hope our future generations will not let their people down.

    They're about 40 years behind us.

    We did similar on a Rose Bowl trip in 1973 and caught similar in Las Vegas and at the Rose Bowl strangely enough. I wasn't quite the cool head these guys were and started a couple of fights over it. I figured they had already started it by shoving me like the vid so no biggie that I returned the favor.

    The most dangerous that I remember was in a Fort Worth red neck bar a couple of years later (with different BF) when I had a gun pulled on me. As a little surprise to that bar patron, I was armed too. It ended up being a tense little standoff until both of us came to our senses and stopped it. It was almost like M.A.D. with both pointing at each other at fairly close range. Since I was an outta towner I was much more worried about a friend of his shooting me in the back.

    Also strange is that we could never provoke an incident here in Columbus that I recall and boy we tried.

    Other countries are centuries behind us in many ways. The mideast has about 1000 years to go if Europe is any guide. Don't hold your breath.

    Wow. If someone were to walk into me and my date like that it would be the last time they pulled that shit on anyone. Why are gay men such pussies? Why is it so rare to see a gay man fight back? Anyone who did that shit to me would wake up in the ER. icon_mad.gif

    Brave men. You can't expect everyone to fight back though, gay or straight. Many people like to avoid physical confrontations. It is what it is.

    Because Moscow is like any big, major city most people mind their own damn business. But there were a few fierce homophobes who are in desperate need of a good ass whipping along with Russia's fascist president, Vladimir Putin.

    It's also a matter of culture. When I lived in West Berlin, Germany in the 1970s I saw many women walking together on the sidewalk holding hands. They weren't lesbians, it was just what many women did, totally acceptable. On the other hand, I never saw any men holding hands in public. Culture.

    What's unfortunate is that you ask the question, "Why are gay men such pussies?" and no one here even batted an eye. You watch one video of two men who didn't defend themselves and then you make a sweeping generalization while simultaneously putting yourself above other gay men; claiming you'd put someone in the hospital for pushing you around. You're basically saying, why am I the only strong gay man while the rest are "pussies?"

    Why don't you fly to Russia and do the same experiment and video record yourself "hospitalizing" anyone who attacks you for holding another man's hand. Cuz frankly, talk is cheap.
    Well, then I just wanna say thank you for saying something. I can appreciate it because I was one of those kid who had to take a longer route to school and back home to avoid confrontation and harassment, why?.., because apparently there were some kids who didn't like to see gay kid walking around.
    Not saying that I needed someone to fight for me either, (that's why I didn't say anything about this matter to anyone, much less my brothers), but it's just good to hear that somehow it's alright and there's no need for anyone to feel bad for avoiding confrontation.
