    I don’t know if the previous poster from austin texas was insinuating that gays are inferior but if so I would just like to correct his perceptions. I am gay. My partner in life and bussiness is obviously gay and so is all the other employees in my company. We develop graphics internationally and do not stand back for any straight guy.
    As a matter of fact. Gays are USUALLY more successful in their endevours than straight people becuase they learned at a early age that they have to fight twice as hard to achieve in a discriminating world.
    Lastly, you will be shocked out of your stetson and boots if you knew how many of the world leaders in ALL industries were gay but due to discrimination, they got married, had babies and lived their gay life in the closet.
    According to the kinsey report 10% of the US male population is gay. that means that at least 10 people of every 100 you know is gay. How many have you identified?

      Hey Dominic – chill the eff out, dude. You’re obviously VERY insecure in your homosexuality to come off with all that crap over the comment that Tyler posted.

      Where you got that he was making any kind of insinuation that gays are inferior, is completely beyond me. So stop trying to PROVE who you and instead, just BE who you are, like Tyler.

      Simply stating – Tyler (and I) think that Evan is a HOT dude and would love to take him on in a race, simply because of the connection, not because there’s some inferiority issue gleaned from his being a gay race car driver.
