Greetings, all This site has become increasingly intolerant of gay people. I have fallen victim to responding to many of the bashing threads, trying logic, passion, anger, cajoling, humor, whatever works. This used to be a site tolerant of people. Those who bash get righteously indignant when they are called on it, saying they object to this being treated as a gay site, and they should feel free to bash all they want. I thought that inflammatory bashing posts, against any group represented here, was a violation of terms, but I guess that bashing behavior is an exception. Thus, as much as I enjoy this site, and the many thoughtful interesting, funny, and wonderful people who have enriched my life, I find I can no longer participate in a site which encourages hatred against me. I am what I am. I fought being who I am for the first 2/3 of my life, so I know my sexuality is not a choice, or I would have been a married straight man with a family by now. You can think, believe, or feel what you want. I will no longer try and convince you of anything. I will keep my mouth shut. I will go away. If the few here who know me, or give half a passing thought to me, would be so kind as to PM me when the hatred has subsided, if it ever does, so that I may once again participate, I would be grateful. Until then, I wish ALL of you health, happiness, joy, and success and fulfillment in your work, your play, your lives. May you have family, and friends, and love, and joy all the days of your lives. I include those who have shown hate towards me, since you don;t really know me, and I don't really know you, I can not know where your hate comes from or why. Peace to you all.
