    missleaglebeagle!  Sums it up exactly.
    I decided to be straight because I did not WANT to be gay.
    Worked well for 30 years.
    Except for all the attraction I felt for other women.
    I wanted to get married, have children, you know, be 'normal'.
    Until she walked in to my life.
    I was still fairly religious and had that guilt thing going.
    But I went for a long walk, talked to God and asked how love could be a sin?  
    Decided it wasn't and never looked back.

    Gitmo is a Concentration Camp. Not a Detention Center. Torture happens at Concentration Camps. Torture happens at Gitmo. How much further will US values fall? Where is YOUR outrage at what the United States does in OUR names?

      I was an internal homobhobe.
      My brother was gay and I hung around with many gay women.
      I had no problem with their lifestyle, it just wasn't what I wanted.
      Funny tho, when I came out to my brother he asked me what took so long?  :).
