Dallas - Oh, no, I wasn't asking. We all know exactly what they're going to do, which is more head-burying and raising the volume a few more decibels, as if yelling louder and more frequently will make it a truth. The question was purely rhetorical. ;-)As Aldous Huxley wrote in Brave New World, "Sixty-two thousand four hundred repetitions make one truth."
David, don't you always take your shirt off when dancing at weddings?
Sandi, just too bad we've had a decade of misinformation based on that "exgay" study. All we really needed was to have a group of exgays go to a gay wedding and watch the dancing men.
Sandi - Saw that yesterday in Twitter! It's a tad hard not to gloat, isn't it? What will the evangelicals do now...
Robert Spitzer, Psychiatrist Behind Controversial 'Ex-Gay' Study, Retracts Original Claims:
"In a move that will no doubt rankle the efforts of anti-gay institutions, the psychiatrist who published a controversial 2001 study proclaiming that "highly motivated" gay and lesbian people could change their sexual orientation is now retracting his initial claims"
I notice that over half of this video is devoted to... um, guys with... um... beautiful personalities... trying to stay cool by removing their jackets... and shirts. That reception hall must have been WARM!!
Amazing! Or at least, odd!
Interesting. Matlovich's grave is in the same row as J. Edgar Hoover's.
Tony, thanks for telling your story. It's quite moving.
SB, talk about life coincidences. I was stationed at Langley from '73-'77 and I took race relations under Tsgt. Matlovich. He made a good impression on me, and when he came out, I made a trip to the building he taught in, just to shake his hand and tell him I was behind him. And quess what? I wasn't the only one. Many, many people, still on active duty did. And almost all were straight. He knew he had the support of (most) of the troops there. Wow. Thanks for this, and for giving me a wonderful, beautiful trip through my memories of a truly great American. I was honored to have known him, even briefly, as our paths only crossed those two times. Again, thank you. Be well.
I don't know anyone who fits your bill, but Leonard Matlovich was one of my heros growing up. He's dead now.
