No disrespect to gay people, but I find that Ragan is trying too hard to be the stereotypical "gay guy" and it's making him very unlikeable.
I think you just paraphrased Rachel's comment during their now infamous fight, and I agree with you completely.
Whoever Ragan chooses to be is his own business. Nobody can really know for sure. He just strikes me as naturally flamboyant, as some people (gay or otherwise) just tend to be. Rachel is flamboyant in her own way.
However, Rachel's comment wasn't about Ragan trying too hard to be a 'stereotypical' gay. What she was doing was clinging to that stereotype and calling Ragan a 'bad gay' because he didn't exactly fit the mold she has built up in that puny brain of hers. Her comments were totally offensive not only to Ragan, but to myself and I suspect many, many other people across the country, gay or straight.
Labeling somebody as a 'bad gay' implies that there is a good, correct way to be gay, which is so fucking wrong and utterly offensive. Ragan had every single right to call her a vile, disgusting devil-child because she kind of is.
But that horse died long ago, so I shouldn't keep beating it.
