What if you didn't know and found out he (or she) was gay? Would it bother you? Would you invite him (or her) back on future hunts?
Would your own insecurity in your own masculinity make you start to doubt yourself being around him?
(Because, after all, fag-bashers are just deeply disturbed gay men. They hate anything that reminds them of the feelings they were taught to hate about themselves. Rather than have the strength and courage to face their mirror, they try to destroy anyone that reminds them of their own feelings. Fag-bashers and homophobes require our compassion and understanding to help them come to terms with their own gay orientation and feelings.)
