Great point, Chris. Without all the superstitious crap we've all been immersed in since birth, sexuality would be exactly as controversial as right- or left-handedness. (Of course those fun-loving religionists used to claim left-handedness was the work of the devil too, and forced people to change their behavior. My granny was left-handed, but her Catholic school made her write with her right hand.)
I love that video, Daniel, and the gentle way they speak. And of course sexual orientation is there even when sexuality isn´t there. When I compare with something like handedness I know how true it is.
It probably means a lot to him, Daniel. You and I both know that the coming-out process is as individual as the person doing it, and comfort levels span the spectrum of human personality. For whatever reason, he felt he was ready, and my hat's off to him.
Carl - Yes, sometimes it seems true that the love that dare not speak its name has become the love that won't shut up.

Same Sex Marriage Legalization May Have Cut Teen Suicide Attempts
Just added a coming out story, I think a happy one.
No surprise there, Ruth, about Jeff Sessions. Such a deplorable man.
A few weeks ago, something prompted me to watch a "coming out" video on YouTube (of which there are many.) That led me to spending the past few weeks perusing the coming out stories of many others. Some are sad, many have happy endings, some are funny, and some will make your heart ache with pain and bring you to tears.
It's that last category which is riddled of stories involving hate speech, bullying, disownment, suicide attempts, being told you are less than human, and that your existence doesn't matter.
To have someone like Jeff Sessions as head of the bully pulpit of justice and equality is such an anathema to the concept humanity itself. His presence does real and true damage to individuals who are now facing the same horrid situations as those in so many coming out videos.
Sorry, here's the article
