    and you have a way with words to describe you experiences.

    FYI, as a child of straight parents, I remember that at a young age, my mom merely told me that gay meant women who love women or men who love men. Ok, I thought no big deal. And it never was to me. Never occurred to me that anyone would be against it. After all - isn't love a good thing? So take that Bill O'Reilly.

    Hell, I didn't even know what straight sex was until age 10 (which is apparently old these days - my brother figured it out around age 5 or 6).

    •  Ha! You remind me. I learned the word 'Homo' in (3+ / 0-)

      5th grade, when another kid whispered to me "You know what a Homo is? It's a boy who likes boys, or a girl who likes girls."

      Hm, I thought. Shouldn't that be everybody?

      -9.0, -8.3. The less a man knows about how sausages and laws are made, the easier it is to steal his vote and give him botulism.

      •  my cousins have 2 aunts that are 'roommates' (2+ / 0-)

        Auntie Liz and Auntie Denise. They thought nothing of it. When my cousin was about 12 she accidentally overheard me telling another cousin about my friend who is gay and she asked me what the word meant. She had no idea. Totally normal that Auntie Liz was with Auntie Denise. They've been together for probably over 20 yrs. Kids are like that. If you tell them it's okay and normal, they think it is. Which is unfortunately what the other side is doing too... tell their kids that hate is okay and normal and those kids know no different.
