There has been a tendency on this board by those who control it to demonstrate their solidarity with the gay community by their declarations that there should be no differences between us and that we should all be as one. This is most commendable.
While your level of openness and acceptance is a marvel in today's world and much appreciated, it is not unfortunately shared by all. We are asked to forget our differences and join you. But note, it is we who are asked to join you, not you being asked to join us. With miner exception, you would be most welcomed in our social milieu. Can you say the same of your milieu? I think not.
We migrate to sights as this because we know that we will not be subjected to the enourmous discrimination that is levied by the straight community, granting this minor exception.
