    Glad to see that you are not a bitter angry peron and that you play well with others.

    No it shouldn't matter to him. But most people who it doesn't matter to would not take time to answer the question.

    Maybe he thought you should know since you asked. The polls are free for the answering, no?

    It is anymous so people will be trughtfull. this way people who may not want others know that they have a gay in their family will answer too.

    Also, some people do not list themselves as gay in their profile. they can be honest here.

    "don't know" is a poll choice, is that not a fair answer?

    Your other polls on rape and other tragedies were public.

    People can disclose rape, suicide, murder etc, but it might be too embarrassing to say they have 'a gay' in their family!!!??? You can't be serious.


    :wtf2:

    YOU ARE WRONG BURNING VENUS.

    The poll on rape was anonymus. The poll on tagedies was public because it I don't find the answers to be as personal as rape is. Rape is nothing to be ashamed of, but some are not comfortable with disclosing it. Tragedies are a part of life.

    Anyone is free to not answer any poll.

    If I think that some may not answer honsestly because they may be ashamed or uncomfortable about the gay issue, or other personal issue, then I will make it anonymous.
    People are then free to answer honestly in the thread as they see fit.

    My cousin Mel is gay, I only know because he insists on telling everyone, maybe he's in denial and he's really straight :)

    Actually, yes, you would be surprised how many would admit to almost anything except "gayness" in the family.

    (P. S. I do enjoy your posts, but please be kind to those of us who have less-than-perfect vision. The smaller fonts really are difficult for me.)

    I clicked the wrong option... I'm the only semi-gay one I know of.
