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. 

Comment by Daniel Wachenheim on June 15, 2012 at 5:55pm

Joan - I agree.  Let's honor TFA's recommendation to put a ballot measure on this fall's ballot, to change Olympia to "Capital City".  Or we could call them all "Springfield". 

TFA, I've been to the old Lincoln house in Springfield.  Does that count?
