Ok, here goes. FIrst of all, I'm not so thin-skinned that I cannot take a
little verbal discussion or even argument. That, kind sir, is why I'm
here. I will not run away simply because we disagree. If I were more
immature maybe, but I'm a little older than that. (ok, a lot older ;o)
Now, heeeeeeeeere we go.
I read the article about Anne Paulk. Interesting. I know quite a few
gays and lesbians. A nicer bunch of folks you couldn't find. I don't
believe that through some quirk of their upbringing, all of them (and they
number over 100 that I know) (AIDS Division, remember?)all of them "turned
gay". It is my understanding that they consider themselves of two ilk.
There is one strain that was born gay and there is another strain that
decided to be gay after some heinous act, such as Ms Paulk's sexually
It also seems to me (this is COMPLETE speculation) that there are a great
number of lesbians that are now with women after an abusive straight
relationship. Maybe gay men are born and gay women are made by stupid,
assinine, aggressive, abusive men. (yes, there's a little bitterness about
We in Christian/Catholic society have members which convince themselves not
to be attracted to other members sexually. We call them nuns and priests.
I suppose I could give up sex for religion also, if I so choose. However,
I happen to enjoy men too much. ;o)
Seriously, it seems to me that perhaps Ms Paulk merely convinced herself
that her sexual preference was wrong. She didn't "convert" she conformed.
