Rules Of Conduct For Straight People

  1. Keep your display of affection (kissing, handholding, embracing) to a minimum. Your sexuality is unwanted and offensive to many here.
  2. If you must slow dance, be as inconspicuous as possible.
  3. Do not gawk or stare at lesbians or gay men, especially bull dykes or drag queens. We are not your entertainment.
  4. If you cannot comfortably deal with someone of the same sex making a pass at you, get out.
  5. Do not flaunt your heterosexuality. Be Discreet. Risk being mistaken for a lezzie or a homo.
  6. If you feel these rules are unfair, go fight homophobia in straight clubs, or:
  7. Go Fuck Yourself.

Obvious questions:

A page on how to effictively/safely Respond To Homophobia would be nice.
