Geodude, are you homosexual? If so, then maybe I can sort of understand your response better.
I must have pointed out that he's personally affected by this about 5 times now.

edit
>Q. have you ever been bitten in the ass by an assumption about someone regarding sexuality/race/etc (even if you don't consider yourself bigoted and it really was an honest mistake?)?
Yes I have! I figure most people have probably have, if they've been online for a long time.
 
Well... yeah see it was never explicitly mentioned. So in my obliviousness I just assumed we were still generally talking and geodude was being offended for gay people rather than actually being one. Very very dumb mistake on my part.
 
On the topic of heteronormativity, what if ones own internal logic for it was that since the majority of people are straight, you make that assumption? I always viewed that as a practicality thing. But I can see that as potentially problematic as well?

The statistics are what, 1 in 10?  This forum is plenty big enough for you to not be thinking that way.

yeah guys, this is all very interesting but I think we've pretty much come to an agreement about what we were arguing about before, let's not come up with new moral/ethical issues to discuss [in ][/in].

well, yeah in the context of the entire forum I can safely assume that there are others that are gay. but I made the assumption specifically with each individual in question in mind rather than the collective. In this case Tuxedo/Geodude. I assumed he was straight because of the only 1 in 10 chance thing. (while admittedly being totally oblivious to certain things said in this very topic)

If you want to discuss this more feel free to make another topic b/c I'll be happy to talk more about why this is a huge problem.
