<< Merkat -- No, I'm not gay. I used to be a pro musician, and now I design professional audio equipment. Much of my work is around the entertainment business, so I know a number of gay people. If you have no tolerance for it, you don't stand a chance of staying in business. I have known a number of gay people for whom I have considerable respect, and some have been good friends.
One more thing -- If you're thinking of getting in my face about it, you're probably picking on the wrong guy. >>
As your post suggests....... a persons beliefs are determined by their goals.
