    Padraig,

    That was probably the most interesting diary I've read on dKos in my short time here, but sister you have GOT IT DOWN.

    I think what are SO interesting here are the almost tangible social forces at work here.  We are witnessing, I think, a profound manifestation of the gay revolution of the past thirty years.  The social climate is perfect for this story to seriously effect the course of our culture.

    Those of us who are gay, I think, often take for granted that being gay or "gayness"  is something completely unknown, unknowable, and mysterious to many people (that deal with these characteristics in  shall we say varying manners.)  I think that's why these dots weren't connected earlier -- being gay, we've all dealt with people in the closet (probably even in ourselves) and so this story just clicks with us.  For most people, this is new and completely foreign.

    And another thank you for helping me realize it's definitely time for coffee, man that was hard to spit out. </obligatory sex pun>
