The Addams Family?!!  That's really cool.  You need to explain that one to us.

Awesome family life!  That's wonderful.  Mine was more like a cross between 'The Waltons" and "The Addams family".  Not to complain.  I mess them.

I haven't the slightest idea who thought what about me and when.  I'd have to sit down and interview my parents and siblings.  I wonder if my parents and one older brother and two older sisters talked about it amongst themselves or with each other.  To this day we've never had that conversation.  I can honestly say that I was NEVER treated ill or made fun of by any family member for any perceived sexuality or femininity, although I'm sure it was apparent at a young age.  I have a great family.  Growing up we were probably a cross between the hi-jinx of the Brady Brunch (without the oozing saccharine) and the Partridge Family (without the showbiz and the hipness.)  All I can tell you is that I knew I was "different" at a very young age (4 or 5), and to me being different meant feeling free to be myself, eccentric and refreshingly unique.  My family always embraced those qualities in me in a non-gay way.  They still do.

How old were you before people decided you were LGBT?  In my case, about 4 would be right.  I know in retrospect, plus at one point my mother told me people were afraid I would turn out "different".  It was quite a while later before I figured it out.  Everyone knew, no one admitted it.  Maybe it's the same for the poor 4 year old who Dallas mentions.  Except someone did admit it, and he died for it.

The Joel Burns speech made me cry but it was a good cry! Its one of the most heartfelt speeches i have ever had the pleasure to hear.

SB,all hyperlinks right there take you right to it.;) Thank you. Hope you find it informative and enjoyable.

TFA, thanks for that advice.  I'll make sure I bring my passport if I ever go to Hawaii.  By the way, I was thinking about going there this year.  What language do they speak?  I think I saw on Fox something about Kenyan?

SEB I'll look for your article.  Thanks.

Anne I hope Dan Savage has what it takes!

Dan Savage may need to have a go at this Fisher person.

In April, Mitt Romney hired Richard Grenell, an openly gay man, to serve as his campaign's national security spokesman. Within hours, Grenell was being attacked by a Christian radio talk show host named Bryan Fischer, whoseFocal Point call-in show reaches more than 1 million listeners a day.

Nine days after Fischer began his on-air attack, Grenell resigned. He had been the only openly gay member of Romney's campaign staff.

Sure, Sentient, Lincoln's house counts, just like going to Hawaii counts as going to a foreign country.
