Lots of Guts!!!
Good STUFF Lancer.
Oh and by the way Tyr,
If you don't trust me because I am gay, that really is fine. I have been hated by family and others every since I first became honest about my sexuality at 15. And yeah, that was way before Elton John told anyone he was gay.
My suggestion to you is remember that just because you brought tar and feathers to the train station doesn't mean I will accept your brush.
I, and others here (looks at Lancer) have paid more dues than you will ever know behind being judged, hated, talked about, beaten up, and yes, even raped, because of who we are, or whom we were thought to be.
Respect is easy to get brother, it is like a boomarang...it always returns to you when you give it away. Teach yourself not to hate or distrust me because I am gay and I will teach myself not to judge you because you can't trust easily.
Good Luck ...G
