When we see heterosexual relationships in life and represented in the media, it's normal, and they're often the focus of entire stories (think romantic comedy movies). But when non-heterosexual relationships are acknowledged, they're being "shoved in your faces". These people are not talking about sex any more than you would be talking about sex if you mentioned that you were married or had kids, or thought that someone was attractive. None of those things are considered unacceptable by society, but if I, as a man, so much as hold hands with another man in public I'm completely violating everyone in a two-mile radius? If you can't see the double-standard there, you might want to get your vision checked.
