10. One of my co-workers came out about 9 months ago

He is 28. He tried form age 18 to age 28 to 'pray away the gay'. He finally realized that it will never work. He wasted ten years trying. He says he is finally free. His office mate is the worst republican in our department. His office mate insists that 'it's a choice'. His office mate is a hopeless case.

He told me that he knew at age 12, when he saw his first porn magazine. He said he found himself more interested in the men in the images than the women. He said that was the moment he realized he was gay.

He is noticeably happier since he came out. He is scared to tell his father that he is gay, because his father might shoot him if he finds out. He told me that his fathers 'solution' to everything is to 'nuke it'. Nuke Iraq, nuke Iran, Nuke Afghanistan, nuke the liberals, nuke 'the soviets.' His father is a hopeless case.

My friend has metamorphized from hardcore republican to staunchly progressive since coming out. It's pretty amazing watching it unfold.

22. That happened to a friend of mine.

She finally noticed that conservatives hate both single mothers and lesbians and that she is both. She voted for the first time last November, for Obama

32. Welcome to DU, mozan!

Glad you're here. I LOVE the second picture - that's a VERY cool dad. Wouldn't it be great if everyone was as open-minded and accepting and tolerant? We'd be a lot better off as a country, that's for SURE!

23. My thought exactly. Nothing broken.

It's about time that narrative changed. There is nothing wrong with being gay. If you cannot be happy for people in love... or just people who are happy together... then the problem is you.

30. Perfect.

The people that chase, harass and chastise those that happen to be different from them are the broken ones.

31. "It" is just a part of being human, just like everything else

 

Being gay is like everything else human, a big picture with all the colors of being human. The only thing abnormal are those than choose not to realize all that humanity encompasses. They want to make exclusion a virtue, which only reflects their limitations. Live, love, and let humans be.
