Comments: Does anyone else find this list to be horribly offensive?  Obviously the person who wrote the list is an insular black hatter (whom i will assume knows no better), but the webmasters of this site are somewhat educated arent they?  Dont your sensibilities tell you that the whole premise of this list is one big mockery of gay jews just because of the fact that they are gay?  Is that not wrong to any of you?
