I don't want to sound like a sympathizer here, but as a gay man I don't find it all that offensive.

Yes you could say that the person making the video is equating homosexuality with nazism and prostitution, but I think that may be taking the video out of context. I think the writer of the song was making generalizing points about how intimidating college life can be. If someone were raised in a strictly conservative household, and moved out on his own, never having been exposed to the LGBT community, having a gay room mate right off the bat would be really intimidating. To someone living in the cultural bottleneck of the religious right, it would kind of be like moving in with an alien. I think maybe some of us are over-reacting just a tad bit.
