Kinda remins of a line from an old Peter Greenaway flic: "Is a zebra a white animal with black stripes, or a black animal wih white stripes?"
Just a small digression on gays 'n' stereotyping: I'm surprised how gays and gay concerns are somehow associated/ stereotyped with "liberal politics" in the USA. This is not the rule internationally. Sexual preferences are quite independent of politics. For example a well respected conservative Greek politician, the late Constantine Karamanlis, was gay. Manos Hadjidakis, the late great Greek composer and musician was both a right-winger and openly gay.
