    My parents are even farther gone into homophobia than most breeders. I have had no contact with them for years.

    They would be absolutely delighted to learn that I was dead. For that reason, I never list them as contact information.

    You are attempting to shame someone who has been "othered" her entire life into speaking inclusively about the very people who first othered her. It was not my decision, as a child, that I could not belong to their world: it was theirs.

    The condition for their acceptance was for my soul to die and some other soul to replace it. I chose to keep my soul, and as a result I never belonged to any "family". They never "came around" or "got over it".

      Would you call all parents "breeders"?  How would you prefer we came into the world?  

      The '60s were simply an attempt to get the 21st Century started early....Well, what are we waiting for? There's no deadline on a dream!
