In today’s politically correct society most heterosexuals are afraid to offer their honest opinion without being branded a homophobe.
The truth is, most straight men, even those who have gay friends or family, are physically sickened by the thought of gay sex. We see it as a perversion similar to bestiality or S&M. Personally, I have no problem with it unless it is in my face, whether that be on TV, videogames, or in those raunchy gay pride parades (many of whom would be arrested if they were straight). BTW, I used to live near San Francisco, and you’d be surprised how many closet conservatives there are there.

Based off your assumption, we can just write off any heterosexuals opinion in favor of gay rights since the you've decided the only reason they say as much is fear and intimidation. It must be so comforting to know that the majority secretly agrees with you. Any protesting to the contrary must be the gays intimidating them! It couldn't be because they think civil rights issues should be addressed, absolutely not!

The internet proves a great testing ground. If you were correct then most heterosexuals on this forum and on the internet, for that matter, would be agreeing with you, as it's essentially anonymous and they would feel no intimidation from speaking their true opinion, as they cannot be identified beyond the forum (as a general rule.) But the majority here clearly disagrees with you, despite the majority of users living in anonymity.

I'm not saying people don't exist who say the opposite of how they feel about something just because they fear they will be socially ostracized, but to count them among the majority I would consider a mistake. I think the internet helps prove this with its anonymity.
