156. OMG! This is just heartbreaking.
First of all, most of my family and friends live in Sonoma County and it's a fairly progressive place. And second, I saw this situation time after time during the worst of the AIDS crisis, it kills me that it's still happening almost 30 years later. I can recount a thousand anecdotes of separated gay and lesbian couples, while their "families" who disowned them for being gay suddenly showed up at the hospital bedside and took over. It's why same-sex marriage is essential, to stop heinous acts like this from happening!

And also in the anecdotal file, these same "families" who rejected their gay children had other children who abused their spouses, dealt drugs, committed felonies, et al, yet those kids were still in the family fold. What kind of fucked-up priorities are those, anyway? You accept hate and violence from your children, but reject love.
