Wow...im really embarrassed that you really need to look for a homosexual-"friendly"-shell nowadays. Its more than that, its sad in every way...maybe its my background, living in cologne and now i live in berlin. I was lucky enough to have homosexual buddies too.
This is why:
While I agree could you imagine if someone would have come here and made a thread saying they were looking for an all white LS. I doubt that would have been received well.
We are compared to one of the most evil and basic forms of human hate just for wanting to know others like ourselves. No matter how you slice it, it is not heterosexual discrimination to seek entry into a group with common interests who are dealing with similar issues in their lives.
For the same reason I'd question why someone wanted to be in a straight linkshell. Or a white linkshell. Or any other linkshell based on some characteristic that has nothing to do with the game.
And again - seriously heterosexuals are not some kind of victims of discrimination here just because a homosexual would prefer to surround him\herself with other homosexuals. I have yet to see a GLBT guild that rejected any heterosexual applicants, so you cannot compare us to someone looking to join a white supremacy group whose entire purpose is to exclude a minority group as opposed to embracing one.
Unless you're hoping to score some quickies in the local internet cafe bathroom, why would you even care what sexuality people are?
Or the classic go-to "they just wants a hookup."
This is why we want a sanctuary - so we don't have to deal with this kind of nonsense in our everyday lives. Welcome to 2012, where ignorance still abounds.
