A 22-year-old college student attending the CPAC conference with the gay conservative group GOProud took time out from the event to tell
he doesn't much care for gay people and that only "straight acting" gay people are normal.
Matt Hinsey told
's Ebone Bell: "I don't really like gay people that much. Gay people frustrate me, the stereotypical gay people, it frustrates me...someone who puts on a total act. I understand that some guys are feminine, which is fine. But some guys, at some point, are normal, straight-acting, whatever and the next minute they're jumping up and down. It just frustrates me. The whole conservative thing is just be yourself, be an individual and just don't be someone you're not. If someone does or does not accept you, that's fine but don't change who you are to look different to others."
Hinsey also says he wants Sarah Palin to run for president in 2012 because she reminds him of his mother.
