Oh very funny! I'm not going to fall into the "I believe that gays should have equal rights... although I'm not gay myself" trap because it's irrelevant to the discussion. Like I said I believe in equal rights for everyone, full stop.
Why is that a trap? I'm not gay but I support gay rights. Gee, I don't feel trapped! You have said (or at least inferred) on several occasions that a same-sex couple does not meet whatever criteria you subscribe to to be legally married. 'Scuzeme but ain't that the same as saying gays don't have the right to marry? So I'm asking you again: You "believe in equal rights for everyone", but same sex marriage is a no-no. Which one is it?
I can't see why a teacher for example discussing equality would ever want to say to a class "discrimination based on sexual orientation is unlawful - although I'm not gay myself." The qualification "I'm not gay" when there's no reason for saying it suggests that there's some shame in being gay so I'll leave that implication for others to make because it's not what I believe.
I didn't mean to imply that it was your trap incidentally but an inherent trap in the form of words themselves.
