I find it deeply ironic that the the followers of a man who chose to hang out with with twelve other blokes are so intolerant of homosexuality.

Really? Wasn't that just the way their society was gender-segregated?

I think it's partly the way the story has been retold and women removed from it. Happens all the time. I think there were quite a few women active in the original movement, but the later evangelists wrote the women out.

Yes the society was gender segregated, but not as extremely as the story leads us to believe. For example, I gather it would have been considered extremely weird if Jesus had not been married, but it is never mentioned. Likeliest scenario is that he had a wife but she was written out of the stories.
