I once had a psychiatrist friend tell me "I never have had a straight person beg me 'Doc - you've GOT to make me gay!', but I've had a lot of gay people beg for me to make them straight."
While I agree I don't think anyone would ever beg to be made gay (I mean, lets face it, if you did want to be made gay then I'd imagine you probably already are gay), someone begging to be made straight is likely doing it because society is telling them they are freaks/whatever and making them feel like they have to conform or "be normal", creating a long line of gay people that grow up loathing themselves. Then some people (the "you don't see me shouting about bein' a hetro' " type) wonder why so many gay people, finally at terms with being gay and happy with themselves, like to shout it out loud and be in peoples faces with it.

You don't actually have to write any Java to create Android apps now, you could use 100% C++ if you wanted, as of 2.3.
