    I can't imagine what it would be like if I were gay, being the child of someone who feels this way, knowing in my heart that if I told him the truth he'd probably shame me, disown me, try to force me into some fucked up pray-the-gay-away "therapy". My heart breaks for people who have to keep their sexuality a secret because their parents are twisted religious freaks. And I'm so glad my daughter knew she could be honest with me and I would love her the same as I always did.

    And people will vote for assholes like Perry even if they know it's against their best interests. Just like welfare recipients in trailer parks will vote republican. It makes no sense.
