    Has this "simple, straight British bloke" got something he wants to confide in us with?
    I don't know how it all works!!!

    I'm just not "cultured" enough. You will have to visit the place. I challenge you to find a straight bar. I failed in 4 years.

    "Gay" is a self-chosen identity, separate from the same-sex act. I know to most people they are the same thing and even to gay people they are, but the reality is that the natural homosexual behavior is its own thing regardless of what the person chooses to think about it before or after the fact.

    You'd be amazed at what people have done with the same sex in their lifetimes while still calling themselves "straight".
    There you go. This is presumably how the French work it.

    So small that I shouldn't have to hear about them at every turn.

    But if anything, they do present a fine example of exactly how right Burnham was...

    You think that every bar in France is a gay bar? I don't know what you're on in this thread Tim, but you're certainly providing terrific entertainment! FWIW I think there are more gay bars in Manchester than there are in the whole of France, at least that's been my experience.

    I an effort to avoid being chatted up by blokes in French bars I started using the bar where the rugby team met and was also a bit of an expat English speaking place.

    One night after a session of Guinness, I had had my fill, the man to my left brought me another pint so he could practice his English. OK. But first he had to go to the toilet. As he walked past me he ran his hands down my back and said "Ooo, strong". I fled. That was the straightest bar I managed to find.

    You wont find that many gay bars. Just no straight ones.

    You thought that was a come on? Maybe it was, but I doubt it. It's a pretty common sight to see jock types feeling the biceps of a teammate in an after-game pub session, isn't it?

    Question: If you went to an Arabic country and saw all the men holding hands as they walked down the street, would you assume they weren't straight?

    You seem uncommonly worried about all this. Do you live in constant fear of gay rape? Is that why you fled?

    Maybe I'm just naturally homophobic.

    That is I have no intellectual trouble with what ever consenting adults do, just DON'T tell me about it!

    Try visiting Samur, where the French armored division lives. You will have no excuse there. It's full of liberated men.

    Maybe, although you do like to post in pretty colours.

    Why would I? You keep your sex life to yourself, and I'll keep mine to myself.

    No excuse for what? And what do you mean by 'liberated' men? You mean tough, soldier types who don't mind a bit of bum fun? That does sound quite gay.

    This exchange between you and Tim is reminding me of a sentence from a college student's European history paper: "The German emperor's lower passage was blocked by the French for years and years."
