Re: BL's post, Nature vs. Nurture
i've hit a point in my life where i can honestly say 2 things on the subject
1) I don't care why i'm gay; i just am.
2) Whether the reason i'm gay is a domineering/overly affectionate mother, a quasi-absent/affection-withholding father; repeated exposure to Paul Lynde in Bewitched, Wonder Woman, Barbra's a Christmas Album, Bert and Ernie, or Sesame Street's disco 8 track (Sesame Street Fever), at an early age; too much pink Strawberry flavored Quik in my milk; or being born during a full moon, on a Saturday, on the cusp...
thanks Wonder Woman.
thanks Bert and Ernie,
thanks Disco Grover
i'm glad; being gay is, without a doubt, the single luckiest opportunity i was ever "given". it has afforded me the chance to meet the most wonderful, caring, fabulous, fun, funny, and loving people imaginable. it has helped me forge relationships that would have been denied to me had i been born any other way. while not the most important part of my personality, it is certainly an integral one.
thanks again, to all the above; though i am quite sure i could've done it without you, thanks for any help you may have given.
