    NaiadKnight - "Normal is a setting on the washing machine."

    Your quote just proves you're not normal:-) I knew I was right:-)

    I mean, if being married and engineers meant we were normal...! My husband is an engineer, my brother is an engineer, one of my daughter's partner is an engineer, and I'm married. Not a normal bunch in the lot!

    NaiadKnight: I was once called the white sheep in my family, as I'm the only one with a normal job of the kind that offers health insurance. I was kinda insulted. Even if it is an accurate discription of my life at the moment. I think that was my reaction to being not really normal/accepted growing up. I tried really, really hard to appear normal. But I'm getting over that. All that it causes is people to like me because I'm "nice" and really inoffensive. Which means that I know they don't like me- just the image I'm projecting. My white wool is turning the familial shade of black at a decent clip.

    Hi Panda! Checking in. After all this talk about your blog, I am beelining over there. I hope you're having a nice day. No grumpiness, no coldness, with hair parted nicely.

    I could not comment on your blog b/c the work computers told me this:

    STUPID!!!

    what I tried to say was that your blog post made me sad for you and for your mom. I feel badly that she's allowing this *thing* to build up between you. That's so wrong.

    My husband and I have never talked about it seriously, but I know how I'd react if my kids told me they were gay. I would still love them and I would accept them wholeheartedly b/c they are still my children and I want them to be happy more than I want them to follow the "societal norms". Gay people inspire me with their courage and strength to go against the grain and swim upstream day after day against societal norms.

    I'm very glad you are still around to write for us. You have many things to teach the world, I think.

    I would like to look for your books. Are they available on Amazon?

    I found them! I am thrilled that they are available for Kindle!! Can't wait to read them! (Presently I'm reading Hunger Games).

    IMHO, the only person who has any reason to be displeased at someone's gayness is his wife. Part of that comes from having the world's worst gay-dar. If it goes off, it's 100% wrong and most of the time, it doesn't. I used to watch "Queer Eye" and think that the only one who seemed like he might be gay was Carson. Frankly, it's none of my freakin' business and I think it's beyond stupid that keeping people from getting married is even a political issue that people waste their time and energy on. I wish the doors did open up to tell you that this is a big wonderful world with plenty of room for everyone and their differences, but maybe they didn't because that's not what they teach inside. Or maybe they didn't because god/God/Odin/Zeus/etc. wanted you to know you're perfect.

    Agreed about the whole marriage thing. Two people should be allowed to love each other and commit eternally to each other if they so please, regardless of race, ethnicity, religion or sexuality. And they should be able to have kids/adopt too if they so please. There are a lot worse things in the world for a child to endure than gay parents... here's one - orphanages... that's a WAY worse thing to endure than gay parents, I'm sure. Living day by day wondering if you'll EVER be adopted, if anyone will ever love you... yeah, having gay parents would suck... Sorry, off my soapbox now...
