Ben is so gay that he contributes to online and paper publications which promote acceptance and equality between the LGBT community and the greater American society. Furthermore, he is so gay that his articles have positively impacted individuals holding legislative office, by tactfully pointing out their blindspots and allowing them to extend their innate compassion to members of the LGBT community. He is truly a gem of a guy.

... that the ancestral w-lfs-n diapsids of the Triassic period are believed to have displaced the hyomandibular bone from the jaw towards the middle ear, not in response to a shift in jaw articulation, but in order to suppress their gag reflexes.
