Miz Correll, I run the risk of enraging you to a white-hot fit of pique
(but I do not do this intentionally, mind you) with the following
information. Bear in mind that our very own Sherry Zbar was similarly
angered and subsequently left the list. However, she and I remain on
amicable terms, while she retained custody of a mutual wacky sense of
humor. I am afforded visitation rights with the aforementioned humor, but
Homosexuals are homosexual because of some quirk in their up-bringing that
leaves an imperceptable, but nearly indelible mark on their mental paradigm
of social interaction. The falsehood is in stating they cannot be changed.
They *CAN*, indeed, be changed - not easily, but possible.
If you want to see some proof, go <http://www.otherside.net> (I think this
is the correct webby.......I'm getting old and losing my mind). When you
get there, look for the Anne Paulk(sp?) story.
