    MICHAEL CATES: A homosexual who reallllllllllllly doesn’t want to be a homosexual.

  3. David says:

    I used to be horrified by these assaults until I realized as a gay man how predatory gay men are and that most of these are acts of revenge. Chances are they knew each other in more than just a casual way.
