I agree, I don't think any kid needs yet another reason to be bullied or be called different. Especially because kids themselves don't discriminate like this. When they're young, they don't see difference between black or white, gay or straight, whatever. They play with people they like and that's that. Yet when they grow up, most kids tend to copy their parents. So if the parents are close minded and not allowing the kids to find their own ways, the same trends continue. At least it gets less strong as the generations pass, so eventually even these will be eradicated. It'll take a bloody long time though.

And their peers. Peer pressure is extremely difficult to resist for teens.

That's definitely true. But I do see that most kids who are raised to be confident and comfortable with themselves are much less influenced by peer pressure than their peers whom aren't quite that confident. So I would say that part of that is influenced by their parents as well.

If they don't agree with everything that's goin on, why on earth are they flying back home on the taxpayer's cost? :shrug


Or does this mean that God didn't want them to go to their destination?

This issue is not about what is best for homosexuals, it is about what is best for children.
I'm not quite sure what is meant by this angle of the discussion. Children grow up with their sense of normal derived from what they grow up with. The 'normal' becomes abnormal when it is treated as such for a long enough time. Growing up healthy and well nurtured comes from being taken care of and loved. Some adults are great at it - they, therefore, are classed as great parents. They are all kinds of people, as we all know; some are short, some are Korean, some are gay, some are old fashioned, some live in tree communes, etc. It's us on the outside who raise the doubts, who point, who say,"2 mothers! How inappropriate!". meanwhile that kid lives in a home where the single lounge chair is always mum jenny's, they go on a holiday each year to a new place in a new state (it's a family tradition), mum Kate collects books on Asian cooking but she never cooks it (she is actually a fairly sorry cook!), they have arguments over too much computer time and not enough homework time, mum Kate is a smoker and the rest of the household really wish she'd quit but she refuses even though she knows they are right and she should, etc etc etc. All households have their normal. All households have their good and bad influences on a child and all villages outside that home have theirs too. We're the villagers for everyone else's children. What are we doing for the children of families in our village to make sure they grow with self esteem and confidence? Are we telling them, "your mums are bad parents!... The shame of having such a childhood!... You'll probably be a lesbian now, too..." or are we treating all kids the same, helping them all strive to be decent people?

Its legal in large parts of New Mexico now. A bunch of counties have legalized it...which makes things interesting for other states where this might happen. The most heavily populated ones (where Santa Fe, Albuquerque are located).

It was a mutual agreement.

We've been together 8 years and own a house together. It was always a matter of moving into an area where it's legal. So when we left NoVA and moved into DC, it was just a matter of time.

While I may not understand homosexuality, I do know what it feels like to love. I'm happy you found it and I wish you the best.
