DADT - Smashing stereotypes

Readers will remember this long and rich collection of comments, gathered during the first few weeks of the 2010 repeal drive for DADT.

Here's an interesting story from the U.K.:

further to my last, as mincing queens were mentioned - this reminded me of a mincing queen who was well known in Bristol years ago, by the name of "Sapphire"- a black guy. Saw him many times mincing up and down Gloucester Road with an outrageous fur coat and sometimes a crown on his head,

in fact quite a popular character, bus and taxi drivers used to laugh and wave at him and exchanged good-natured banter.

Never forget the day when three aggressive "manly" straight guys who obviously didnt know him, decided to pick on him.

Most people who knew Sapphire were aware of the fact despite him being a queen, he was as hard as nails and not to be messed with, as our straight manly friends found out shortly after- he just smiled..... and then proceeded to demolish all three in about five seconds flat -funniest thing I ever saw.

They should send him to Afghanistan, think he could wipe out half the Taleban single-handedly :-))

By the way, in 2010, it seems wrong to call them "stereotypes". That term is too neutral.
