Gays really are just like other people

This is obviously terrible for the man concerned, but from a wider perspective I regard it as evidence that gay people really are no different in most of the important ways from other people. That's to say, some are good, some are bad, some are weak and some are strong - and some are a mixture of all those things, and a lot more besides. The idea that gays should somehow be 'perfect' in order to be fully accepted by society generally may be a nice notion, but if that's the standard then it will never be achieved. No group is entirely perfect, not even those from the most devout groups of church-, mosque- or temple-goers. What we are all, though, is human with all the foibles, quirks and, yes, virtues that this status confers.
