I have no idea if being homosexual is a choice or some instinct I can't understand. They are what they are.

Just because I don't understand someone's behavior doesn't mean I would believe they were entitled to less than I when it comes to personal rights.

Your trapped in a closet analogy doesn't hold water. If I'm trapped why would I care what the sexual preference of the person in there with me happened to be? I would assume we'd both work to get out.

If a gay man during the course of a conversation touched my arm, or puts his hand on my shoulder like people are prone to do, I'm not uncomfortable.

Where is the threat? What is the difference between a heterosexual touching you in a non-threatening manner vs a homosexual doing the same thing?

It's all in your head. It's either preconceptions of another persons motives, or a genuine fear that homosexuality is something transmitted by touch which becomes a confidence issue.

Now were a homosexual to make sexual advances then they'd be treated in the same manner I'd use for unwanted advances by a heterosexual.

You have a lot to learn about interpersonal relations. It seems to me you need to develop a better sense of what is, or isn't a threat.

To specifically answer your question:

There was a time I was "trapped" you might say, not in a closet but on the deck of a Mexican gun-boat.

One of my bording party was a man I would have described as "queer as a three dollar bill".

As far as I'm concerned, if forced to do it again he'd be the only one I'd take with me.
