But that doesn’t stop the willfully-ignorant conservative/right-wing/libertarian/neocon (whatever they call themselves) paid trolls that spend their pathetic lives blogging on someone else’s blog (in the comment section) of sites whose ideology they can’t stand from going on about how it’s now supposedly “progress” that gay meccas (which they’ve never liked either) are disappearing because of heterosexuals pushing into gay areas and taking them over and causing rents and home prices to soar and making the gay areas unaffordable to the GLBTQ locals. And here’s one example of that from Manhattan’s Chelsea barrio: (New York’s Chelsea: The Death of a Gay Neighborhood, Murdered by Neo-Hetero-Homophobes en Los Estados Unidos/in the US. A similar thing has been happening for some time and continues to happen in San Francisco’s Castro barrio with the eviction of many GLBTQ residents from their apartments forcing many GLBTQs to leave San Francisco. (Related: Gay Culture is Dead in 2014 and San Francisco’s last gay gym fading to straight).
But never mind the facts, which right-wing trolls never let get in their way. I’ve repeatedly seen the big lie from right-wing trolls—some even pretending to be gay while they write anti-gay comments—that “gays can live anywhere now,” they claim and and that’s intended to justify the death of gay meccas and gay areas in major US cities. The reality is:
GLBTQs CANNOT LIVE OPENLY AND FREELY AS A GAY PERSON ANYWHERE
And that’s the part the right-wing trolls deliberately ignore. Depending upon where one is living these days, GLBTQs might be able to live anywhere today if s/he lives in the fucking closet, but even that’s questionable. As the links below about GLBTQ hate crimes indicate, one cannot live anywhere as an openly gay person these days.
Unfortunately, despite the decades-long efforts of the now-dead Gay Rights’ Movement some gay guys are going back in the closet and pretending to be “straight”—a very unhealthy thing to do—as part of their fucked-up-in-the-head heteronormative thinking. They wouldn’t subscribe to heteronormative thinking if they weren’t still holding to that sick societal thinking that there’s something wrong with being gay.
Also, if GLBTQs could live anywhere these days there wouldn’t be literally thousands of sex personal ads—on the site I call ClosetList—in Manhattan (of all places!) as well as Los Ángeles, San Francisco and other major US cities with the word “discreet” and “DL” (down low) in them.
As I’ve said before, there are only two reasons why a gay guy would need to be “discreet” or “down low” and they are:
1) ashamed of his gay sexuality and he does not feel he can live openly as a gay person (even in Manhattan, for example). He feels that being “straight” is the desired or “correct” sexuality. Ugh. Don’t even get me started on that fucked up thinking!
2) he’s cheating on someone so there’s a need to be discreet so the person he’s cheating on doesn’t find out about it. Now that’s a lovely person.
But clearly, based on what I and others are seeing and based on gay personal online sex ads, gay guys today do not feel they can live anywhere openly as a gay person otherwise they wouldn’t be saturating their personal sex ads with the words “discreet” or (the other spelling they use): “discrete.”
So the next time some useless right-wing asshole troll who spends his/her life in a comment section smugly says that “gays can live anywhere,” indirectly tell the asshole (without directly responding to or feeding the parasitic troll), what I’ve written here por favor. You can even link to this if you want. Chau.—el barrio rosa
Gay people can live anywhere? Really? Have they not heard about any of this?:

New York City shocked as anti-gay hate crimes come out of closet
“The brutal slaying marked the 22nd hate crime targeting gays in New York City this year, compared to 13 incidents at the same time last year, New York City Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said, as quoted by Reuters.”
I don’t like Alex Jones or most of his views—especially his rabid views regarding undocumented immigrants—and by embedding his video here I’m not endorsing him or his programme. I find this video informative:
