Eddie -

I hear you - I can't argue with what you say -

it really is a matter of personal experience.

I think there's pros and cons -

- patterns and such -

I am glad a gay man is free - of the chains of self hatred -

Anyway - ttyl

Mark

but I don't agree with you. so please you step back and give space for a different opinion.
I don't feel sorry for him. HE IS THE HEAD OF A STATE or WAS. I feel in part he is like a repentent Tom Cruise - just irritating.

It's a tragedy that our society doesn't accept us - at least in the states - not so up here.

but I think - it's a complex issue - that

to find the silver lining in is good -

very good and positive -

I just don't care that much about this ex governor.

I am calming down - I suppose if gay life were accepted - and it was just a fling that meant nothing - and he stayed married -
then it would have been an embarrassting Lewinsky like thing?

dunno


I will offer this - interesting note though:

The Netherlands Parliament - has approved that if the Crown Prince of the Netherlands is gay -

He can marry -

and there will be a Crown Prince Consort.

The line of succession has also been legislated as to how the Dutch Royal continuity would be kept.

It's so drastically different around the world.

the whole idea of gay life as a sin though is not how most G8 countries see it george nowadays- that idea went out - a long time ago.-

my god - there are 4 western countries that have gay marriage - that I can name alone.
?

in light of all this

the only one who has to be ok with McGreevy
is him

he seems fine now -

I just know - I wouldn't be ok with that -

and would have my opinion

so i just know - I can't stomach - the idea -

so good for him he is out -

I am happy out -

and it's good he is too -

I hope he stays happy.

i know these kinds of men -

I have met them -

It's a frustration that he broke it to everyone

as such. And didn't go into this like Hilary and Bill as a partnership - despite differening prefences.

but it's a matter of style i suppose.

all i can say to those who empathize with him

i think you have a beautiful soul for wanting to support him like you do


truly -

after my conversations with one famous republican politician - in one of the wealthiest cities in the world -

i really don't have faith in any of them -
(or maybe the current system or just culture)

i want to believe in him too -

he should be able to be governor and have a male husband. hands down - the content of his partner's character - is only the thing - male or female - is the point of light.

god save america.
