There are so many people who are not open minded enough to just leave things be. Those who cast judgement upon others whose lilfestyle does not affect them have a sense of insecurity within themselves. How many times have you heard of people making remarks, comments, or outright downgrading others because of their ability to express themselves and no be ashamed of who they are?

The sad thing is that there HAS to be a Gay Ski Week. A week in the snow where they can be free to have fun, without the finger pointing, the judgement, the name calling. A week where nobody has to hide or put up a facade, pretending to be what others expect.

It's too bad that it has to be a designated week, and not alll the time when someone can be happy and free away from all of the stereotypes and stigmas. When someone can just be who they are and left alone.

Amen, sis.

I used to be like that when I was younger. Now that I look back I think nearly all guys, when younger, aren't really secure in their sexuality yet. Of course....they're all trying to be too macho to see that as we'll see very quickly as some start bashing this statement saying just how incredibly secure they are. LOL

It took a few years to get over it....but doesn't bother me in the least now. As you said, sis....I respect those that have the ability to be open about it. Enough of the gay bashing!

From my experience most people that are odd - like to point out that they are odd.
While in the Navy one of my better friends, whom I got along with quite well and didn't try to get me drunk or some other ****, was gay. The biggest thing that I noticed about him was was that he always did things that made it extremely obvious that he was different from everybody else.

While working at another place, this employee would not hesitate to announce that he was gay while at work. I've seen the same thing with other people who are "different from others" in other way, whether its being a whole lot nerdier then everybody else or whether its being Goth.

Just something peculiar that I've noticed. To borrow a line from Larry the Cable guy where he is talking about political correctness, people picketing in california saying "We're queer and we're here". I honestly don't think there would be as much of a hissy foo about their lifestyle if they didn't bother to picket or have a parade. To borrow another line from Larry the Cable guy, I got friends who like sheep but they don't have a parade about it .
