. . . and I'm gay.

I know, Big Whoop!
No big secret.

Tom helped me come out here with his adolescent innuendo in the "Please" thread.
Thanks Tom.

Okay,
Ready?
Set?
Hate me!
Who's first?

BTW I don't want a string of support posts.
That would be as silly as posts supporting me for having brown eyes, or me supporting your straightness.
It just doesn't matter.
I only bring it up for selfish reasons.
I'm not proud to be gay, neither am I ashamed.

It is something that sure is a big f-ing deal, but it shouldn't be.
I look forward to the day that gay characters do nothing for Nielson ratings.
Nobody will care.

We already know this, right? I think people will always care one way or the other, kenny - I'm not sure its possible to completely rid the world of prejudice. But hopefully, some day, it won't be nearly as big a deal as it is now.

I have been wanting to ask you a question, though. Do you want to get married? (And, no, that was not a proposal. \:D )

I'm straight and could say the same of myself. I know a banjo player who has a similar attitude about being a banjo player.

Could be worse, you could be a Republican. (There are Republicans-in-Recovery groups, in case anyone needs any help, though some folks insist it is genetic.)

Not that anyone told me, but my gaydar is well honed - hmmmmm, I wonder. Neh. Anyway, I kind of figured it out a while ago.

The amazing thing is that there have been similar "confessions" here in the past. No one had to resign from office or even, gasp, change their id.

I could swear I saw her on "City Confidential" or one of those other true crime genre shows. Perhaps it was that "Club Kids" episode of "Rosie". One page back probably. More than you will ever want to know. :p

Same person. My friend Melody's real name is Melanie, but she could't use Melanie because there already was one...You know the old song about the roller skate key or something like that.

kenny,

You are a friend and I hope I am one, too--the rest is just details and arguments and trash talk.

And kenny--I hope I am one, too.

kenny,

Dude, ain't no surprise here.

And it doesn't matter.

I am totally curious - when did you know you were gay? I am serious about this question, if it isn't prying.
