OK, finally I'll bite.
So far, ernie, you have been rude, insulting and nasty about me and not covered any of the questions asked. Enough.
When I first made the comment I didn't know if the OP was male or female, gay or straight. The disclaimer was there because, believe it or not, some people find it extremely offensive to be considered attractive to someone who may be the same sex and see it as a sleight against their sexuality. Some even react violently; I know from experience. You've never been in such a position, I would guess, so perhaps think before deciding to get angry.
You, on the other hand, decided it was an insult. Now your turn.
Please tell me, ffs, what the insult is? Did I say something like 'oooooh, you're straight therefore you're not as good as me?' Did I make a comment regarding the OP's colour/sexuality/whatever? WHAT WAS THE INSULT?
Oh, of course, saying that someone may possibly be attractive is the same as saying 'oh you must be straight and therefore evil, and must be destroyed'. Obviously. I should have seen it earlier. God help us on Friday because the A&A thread must be akin to being a satan-worshipper!
Grow up ernie. You took a very slight joke and decided, since in other postings I have had the affront to say something like 'stop using the word gay as a perjorative' and that has caused you to get uncomfortable. If 'jey' means lycra-clad XC'er then I apologise for not apparently reading MBUK (which I only read a long long time ago) and not knowing this designation, or, again, obviously, being in your clique. People come and go on the interwebs and as a result your clique will get smaller and smaller until you're in a clique of one.
Meh, and if you think this will push me away regarding the issue of using gay as a perjorative, think again. Now I guess this thread will get closed - you have a bee in your bonnet regarding something that isn't what you think it is (I'm channelling Rumsfeld there).
