As another queer jubu and a lay person I have to agree with your statement about intentionality. My teacher many years ago told me that; he said that sexual misconduct happened when one of the two behaved in a way that was not welcomed by the other person, not that two men or two women automatically commit sexual misdeeds together, but that loving, respectful, open hearted sex was not a bad thing. I think there is a general misconception in the Western world that the DL runs the entire Buddhist world; when I hear people talk about him as though he were the Pope, I try to clarify their understanding gently.
