Interesting article. Even though this is what we already thought, it's important to have actual data instead of just our instincts.
Study: Some Homophobia is Self-phobia
It's often said that individuals who are homophobic or outwardly hostile toward gays are most likely conflicted and grappling with their own sexual orientation. I'm not sure if that assumption has been based on any past scientific studies, but now there is a recent study, about to be published, which apparently proves this notion. Also interesting is the added element of growing up in a household with "authoritarian parents" as opposed to "supportive and accepting parents."

Gay Jesus is Risen
To me, talking about Jesus being gay is like discussing whether a character on Star Trek or Battlestar Gallactica was gay. Neither of those being especially inclusive either. But each to their own.
Dallas, thanks for posting on Bülent Ersoy. I left off my bucket list, to (re)learn at least enough conversational Turkish to get by, and travel throughout Anatolia. The challenge is if I can't get myself going on Spanish, I sure can't with Turkish. I was there for about 2/3 of my military enlistment, ah youth. Even when there, I communicated more in German than Turkish, because of my own limitations. Use it or lose it.... I lost it. There is more history there than anyone can soak in, including ancient humanity, christian history, roman history, and the story of the centuries-spanning Ottoman empire. As for LGBT life in Turkey - a mixed bag, to say the least. They don't have death penalty for us there like Arab countries and Iran, but it's not all that super gay friendly, either.

Regardless of where it comes from, it's cute. So that would be a "Sinosexual". I am aware of the gay lingo but will stay out of it. I don't think China has the so called Judeo-Christian baggage about sexuality and marriage. A lot of Chinese men have women on the side and their wives accept is as par for the course, and are practical about staying married. It's sexist since I don't think it works the other way around. Long tradition of the landlord class and royalty with polygamous marriages, although the cultural revolution supposedly ended that. Gay mostly seems to be an issue of grandchildren needed, better to marry and have a boyfriend at same time. Admittedly my exposure is limited.
Well, considering that Asian culture typically favors male children, and that the current crop of males are entering adolescence...
I feel like this is either one of those "Find the error" puzzles, or it's something that was badly translated from some other language to English (e.g., Japanese).
Hey, hey, hey! I'm offended by this. Where is the box for Irish-Americans huh? Idjuts.
