About the way homosexuals are perceived in the media: "Some people are so precious -- all this hoo-ha about bad role models and positive images! Of course gay people are murderers, bigamists, drug addicts and nasty people -- just as much as heterosexual people are all of these things. What it all boils down to is, we are all people, and we all have the same human desires. It just happens that some desires go this way and some desires go that way. It`s sad when people are oppressed. But it`s a question of rising above it. Personally, mentally and, if you have to, physically. "
