    I was raised in a "gay household." Guess I'm a just statistic for the bigoted class. Odd that it doesn't seem to me like I've been "hurt." Sigh.

    All I have to tell the other side is that my life was richer and fuller, because I not only had a mother - I also had an "other mother." Yeah, that's right. Two moms! The horror.

    Somehow, I got raised, went to school, had friends, dealt with bigotry (though none of my real friends cared that my family was different from theirs), grew up, got a PhD and made a decent living, got married, raised two children (strong liberals both), and am - can you believe it - happy.

    The other side will never understand... And frankly I don't care. Isn't that what Nancy Pelosi said today?

    Good for her for being politic. I would have said "who gives a fuck?"

      I'm in PA too - outside of Pittsburgh... fortunate that we have a blue city nearby, but our suburbs...whew! You should meet my neighbor (actually, on second thought...maybe not...) Stay strong, brother or sister!
