As Duffer has previously said, I don't think this sort of thing is really an issue for anyone who is not gay/not a raging homophobe. Am pretty glad I'm no longer living with my rabidly Lid Dem, LGBT, Amnesty International. Human Rights activist housemate though, as he is probably the biggest **** I have ever met in my life, just on an unrelated note.
I think this idea is exaggerated to be honest.
Certainly none of my gay friends have this sort of attitude and the gay society at holloway had no such agenda.
They just object to getting abuse chucked at them, which does regretably still happen from time to time.
You just need to get better housemates.
