    My sister and her partner, and their best friends (a gay male couple) are no different than my husband and I when we were together. Maybe that's because the lot of us are in our 50's?

    Allow me to add, that even if he is correct in what he thinks he sees, his sample simply can't be laege enough.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Your sample is not large enough.

    It's been recognized by psychologists that women are generally more flexible when it comes to sexual orientation compared to men. Of course, I think social norms might also a play a part, as PDAs on the part of lesbians seem not to repulse people as much as gay men.

    I've not seen evidence to convince me that lesbians generally want more committed relationships than gay men however.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    This sounds SOME of the straight frat brothers I used to go to college with. You're not describing a gay lifestyle - you're describing promiscuity, sexual insecurity, attention whoring and immaturity (although one could also display this in a positive light and call it "being comfortable with one's sexuality"). These are characteristics that some gay and straight men and women have.

    Because it is repulsive to me. Not gay people mind you, that particular aspects of that sort of lifestyle etc.
    Again, not a gay lifestyle. These are traits of human beings (gay and straight) and they have become a stereotype of gay men.

    There are gay men like this and oftentimes, they are younger, just like young straight men (and women) revolve their entire lives around sexual conquests, etc. However, when these people mature, that whole "sex is everything" mentality tends to change. I think you need to meet a greater variety of gay men and straight women as well. There are a lot of gay men who don't participate in the gay lifestyle as you have described it and there are a lot of straight women who do.
