With this line of a question, you could start saying/implying the same thing for married folks who chose to remain childless, AW.

Did you find the depiction of lesbians in Basic Instinct unfair and derogatory?

She is posting her sexual preference, hence I asked a sexual logistics question.

Why the tension in your post?

Do you or would you, ever consider campaigning for gay marriage, gay rights etc.

Doozer can answer too, if she wants

I don't know that I would personally consider adopting a child. But I don't see anything wrong with gay couples adopting. For me, in my last relationship, she had a daughter that still considers me her step mom and I am very much a part of her life and my grandchildren's. Currently, Caron has a 16 year but our relationship is much different because the circumstances are different.

I think educating people to be tolerant of gays is certainly key to helping them overcome their fear of the unknown.

As far as feeling inferior, I don't remember the last time I felt that way. In my current job, I came out on the first day! And, I have been accepted there. Fortunately, I work in a Health Department and because of the Youth Health Education and the HIV Education we do, we do have a staff that is about 20% gay. I don't think discrimination would be tolerated there.

And I am not afraid of who I am. For instance, last night we were in Santa Monica in a straight bar and I was holding Caron's hand and being somewhat affectionate with her. I guess I am at an age where I don't really give a shit what other people think about me. And I am also very fortunate to live in a city that has a high gay population.

As for gay marriage, I don't really know that I am for it or against it. I am, however, for equal treatment for all people. Having had a "gay marriage" and a "gay divorce", it may have made my opinion of it slightly tainted. I know when we dissovled our partnership, we only needed to send a notarized copy of the paperwork to Sacramento. Now, gay couples actually have to get a lawyer to dissolve domestic partnerships. So, they are on their way to equal treatment.

Any other questions for me, the older lesbian?

Do you feel like there is a double standard, that lesbians are more easily accepted than gay men? If so, why is this?

How old are you? Maybe just a hint? And I'm curious as to when you came out and if was much harder then than it is now?
