You'd think 25 years on that gender issues would have advanced some. We've seen pop culture get more comfortable with sex ("We saw your boobs" at the oscars being a bellweather for that) and people enjoy openly gay entertainers like George Takei, but when it comes to the average straight young male, he's more uptight about his masculinity than ever.
Agreed. It's annoying as hell.

Here in the UK, all the way through secondary school, people used 'gay' as an insult. Also 'Jew' but that's another story. I just don't see why being gay is such a bad thing, I don't see how it could be taken as an insult unless it severely damaged their ego or something, the prospect of which I find hilarious.
