This level of behavior is not flaunting their sexual preference , right?
Ok, can two men who love each other, may have years together , are monogamous, can they do all this withou arousing your displeasure and distate? Ask yourself and be honest.
I don't have to ask myself anything - I am perfectly comfortable with my own sexuality and my attitude toward homosexuals. I have a homosexual Uncle who has been with his same "partner" for over 55 years now. They don't bother me a bit, because they are just like anyone else - they don't walk into a room and announce to the world they are homosexual as if it were some badge of honor. Then I have a homosexual nephew that just turned 30, and he throws it in your face constantly, talking of little else, and making sure everyone he encounters knows he is homosexual - when most people could really care less. As I said, you don't see heterosexuals broadcasting to the world they are heterosexuals. Flaunting has nothing to do with casual touching or showing affection...at least to me, although I am not a touchy feely type of person myself...
