To the insecure young person who drove by me and yelled “You’re gay!” as I was walking home: That’s not an insult. If you really want to cut me down, tell me my perception of the world is purely binary. Tell me I only see things in terms of black or white, gay or straight, conservative or liberal. Maybe that’s a lot for a coward to get out while speeding past someone at 35 mph, so for the sake of simplicity, just yell, “You’re straight!” That’s an assumption that would bother me.
