I'm openly bisexual, but i've been waning toward asexual.
10 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Tuesday 10/21/03 - 4:01:36 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, my brother.
10 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Tuesday 10/21/03 - 5:28:25 PM EST (GMT-5)
I have an aunt that is gay. It's a little weird, everyone in the family knows, but no one really talks about it. Also, she has had a partner for about 20 years and they're both named Judy.

Me and sis', keeping the American dream alive!
10 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Tuesday 10/21/03 - 5:34:41 PM EST (GMT-5)
Oh, hell no.
My family isn't really open to that kind of thing...
10 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Tuesday 10/21/03 - 5:37:30 PM EST (GMT-5)
Well tell them you're gay, and then when they become better people for accepting you, say you were just kidding. It's win-win, Trips.
10 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Tuesday 10/21/03 - 5:39:00 PM EST (GMT-5)
Or, they could just not accept me at all, become horribly ashamed, and shun me forever.
But I don't know, I think my dad has a pretty negative view of homosexuality, and my Grandma woudln't be much better...
10 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Tuesday 10/21/03 - 5:40:38 PM EST (GMT-5)
Do you ever talk about it with him?
10 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Tuesday 10/21/03 - 5:44:33 PM EST (GMT-5)
Well, not really, although it has come up, once or twice.
It's been really weird though, we were once driving to a far away theater, and he gave me a lecture about studying so I could get a good job, and not become like my brother.


and he said how if my bro hadn't joined the Navy, he would probably be in jail right now.
And then, he sort of went off on a tangent about how this country will let you get ass raped in jail and you come out a homo.

It was pretty weird, but the way he made it sound was like he believed all homosexuals were the same as prison rapists.

Im not really sure though, it would be highly uncharcteristic, he's usually very nice and live-and-let-live.

He won't be burning any crosses on the lawn any time soon, but if I was gay, I probably woudlnt' tell him.

10 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Tuesday 10/21/03 - 5:52:53 PM EST (GMT-5)
Oh wow, I guess he's just like an older man, and that's the way they are. Can't really do anything about it.
10 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Tuesday 10/21/03 - 5:54:09 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, but he isn't a raging fundamentalist, I think he's just a product of growing up some 50 years ago.
He really is a sweet guy, and great dad.
I hope this doesn't distort your view of him.

and no, he's not the reason im a "water down conservative"'

10 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Tuesday 10/21/03 - 5:54:22 PM EST (GMT-5)
watered*
10 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Tuesday 10/21/03 - 5:56:42 PM EST (GMT-5)
He sounds like a great dad trips. Just a typical person of his generation.
10 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Tuesday 10/21/03 - 5:58:18 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, I understand. I have a great dad, and he's that way too. He wouldn't even see an Ann Heche movie on principle!
10 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Tuesday 10/21/03 - 5:59:33 PM EST (GMT-5)
Well, he's not that bad!
It's more like he disagree's with homosexuality, rather then being "offended" by it.
And atleast he's not a racist to boot.
10 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Tuesday 10/21/03 - 5:59:56 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yup, my brother.
10 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Tuesday 10/21/03 - 6:01:26 PM EST (GMT-5)
LOL wise! My parents are pretty relaxed about a lot of things, and they have gay friends. I am very very distantly related to Ian McKellan a fact that my Grandmother was very proud of. When he 'came out' she didn't talk about him anymore!
10 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Tuesday 10/21/03 - 6:29:04 PM EST (GMT-5)
No. But I think one of our cousins are.
10 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Tuesday 10/21/03 - 8:16:16 PM EST (GMT-5)
"Oh, hell no.
My family isn't really open to that kind of thing..."

I don't think many families sit around saying how great it would be if the children said they were gay. That's why it seems so funny when so many people say it's part of your upbringing and yet so many gay children are terrified of telling anyone.

My sister is gay but I don't think it's because our family was more 'open to it' than any other family. They just got over it!

10 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Tuesday 10/21/03 - 8:16:30 PM EST (GMT-5)
My aunt.
10 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Tuesday 10/21/03 - 8:22:41 PM EST (GMT-5)
Glen, being open to something isn't the same as actively embracing it.
10 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Tuesday 10/21/03 - 8:32:37 PM EST (GMT-5)
yes that's why I cringed when I saw that you had replied. I admit I sort of blew up your comment so that I could do a pre-emptive attack on anyone that seems to think gay people only grow up in 'pro-gay' families.

Still you did seem to imply that being 'open to that sort of thing' was a partial cause. I don't think many families, until perhaps very recently, were ever open to it until it jumped up and slapped them in the face.

10 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Tuesday 10/21/03 - 8:44:02 PM EST (GMT-5)
' I cringed when I saw that you had replied"
Ouch!

And not all families are discriminating against homosexuals, by open I meant families that woudln't hold contempt for their kids for being gay

10 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Tuesday 10/28/03 - 2:07:56 AM EST (GMT-5)
Nope.
10 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Tuesday 10/28/03 - 1:11:54 PM EST (GMT-5)
My uncle and aunt are gay. My aunt/aunts came out first and then my uncle/uncles did.
