What would a gay man know about heterosexuality? And furthermore why would a heterosexual give two shts what his impression of heterosexuality is.
It's not your views that divide us, it's what you think my views should be that divides us.

If you think I will give up my rights and forsake social etiquette to make you "FEEL" better you are sadly mistaken

If liberal democrats would just stop shooting people gun violence would drop by 90%

Maybe among hipsters and metro guys... but no one else.

The speaker said it once in the video and I like it.

brain conjures up many an anxiety about it's sexuality/masculinity and yes that is a cultural trend that begins when male heterosexuality begins to become challenged as the dominant norm.

I think that's a boring view. It would be reductive to say that heterosexuality (as it exists presently) exists solely as a bare set of sexual relations between men and women. It inscribes itself in various ways and under various guises in social institutions and cultural practices, most of which are contingent and fluid. The number of normal partners (and their relationship to one another), the power-dynamics in strictly modern relationships, the sexual practices involved, how these sexual practices relate to political, religious, or economic institutions (reproduction especially attains varied significance here), the matrix which makes intelligible certain practices as they relate to different sexual categories (and these practices in relation to one another), etc. have signification which is anything but eternal or static. I think it's wrong to analyze heterosexuality from a narrow set of descriptions and normative expectations and then relate experimental or challenging practices situated against the dominant raison d'etre as mere subcultures which exist only as deviations from within a relatively stable norm. To say that a queering of heterosexuality occurs only amongst socially acceptable 'trends' is to ignore the regulating function which 'naturalize' and re-naturalize heterosexuality (in it's very recent, very modern incarnation) as an eternally present and socially homogeneous set up actions and identities.

I'd say this points to the fact that sexuality is a dynamic force (that isn't or shouldn't be contained within narrow strictures), not that heterosexual (or likewise any other) anxiety is wholly unwarranted.
