Yeah. I just want to get my Delver of the Lawlts title and then GTFO of MSV for a while. I even need a bunch of stuff for when I go tank in 5.2... and I really don't care enough to keep farming the instance. I have enough Holy gear to last me till the patch drops, and I'm sure I'll have enough Prot gear by then to carry both my badness and your badness through early T15.
As far as the Gender/Sexuality thing goes:
It does seem that healing, as a "support" role, does weed out a lot of the stereotypical meathead types at least in PvE... so it kinda makes sense that if a role doesn't appeal to a demographic that is almost exclusively straight males, then that role will be disproportionately heavier on people who are not straight males.
That being said, I think most of our healers are straight males. Probably.
It is definitely funny because this time of year, every single year, regardless of what guild I'm in, this always happens: we're forming the raid or on break, and then a bunch of sports fanatics start talking about football. AND THEY GET INTO IT and really start rambling about various teams and stuff... and the healer channel is like, this little rebellion.
"What are they talking about? Patriots? Cowboys? Vikings? What the... are the Village People getting back together? Oh wait, they just mentioned John Madden, that's the guy from the fungus commercials, I think he plays footballs or something... RIGHT it's the super bowl... let's talk about music/movies/ANYTHING BUT FAT SWEATY MEN CHASING A BALL AROUND A FIELD".
