I'm still here, although I don't come around often anymore.
I chose to answer your question because I know some people in my own life are asking the same thing about me. I've narrowed my list of friends down a bit since the whole gay marriage thing erupted, as I've become much less patient with anyone and everyone who argues that there's anything at all sinful or immoral about a person's sexuality. If you think about it, there no argument possible that isn't insulting and demeaning, and I've grown weary of being insulted and demeaned. I try to stay away from it for the most part.
In some ways I think I've got it better than a lot of people, in that it's easy for me to tell who my enemies are. When you surround yourself with only open-minded people, you find there's much less stress in your life. Sleep comes more easily.
In other ways it's not so good. I have no relationship to speak of with my dad anymore, for instance. As sexuality is discussed more and more in public these days, he's retreated more and more into a fundementalist christian fantasy world, and I simply can't do more than exchange forced pleasantries when I see him these days.
I went through all this at age 19 when I came out. It's like I'm going through it all over again, only this time I've become much more intolerant toward willful bigotry and stupidity.
You know, I never realized just how much I used to put up with racial bigotry from white friends and family. I guess I just chose to ignore it, but my experiences of the past few years have forced me to recognize it.
