Why are gay people so self-absorbed?

My sister asked me this question and I didn''t know how to answer her, other than to deny it and then quickly try to think of an example of a non-self-centered gay person. I pretty much failed and on the inside I was thinking, "She''s right...that''s a good question." The only reason I can think of is that, growing up gay, you kind of develop a "me against the world" attitude. Plus we''re not allowed to get married or adopt kids in most states, so who else do we have to be centered around? All we have are ourselves! So we''re kind of selfish by default. That''s my hypothesis, anyway. Thoughts?
