I've been wondering where I would stand on gay rights issues were I not gay, myself.
Okay, so such a question is rather erroneous as I am gay, and there's absolutely no way of knowing how things would be if I weren't.
So, I guess the question is: Why am I on the side I am on? Why did I ditch the belief that celibacy or straight marriage is the only option? Why have I come to believe that gay couples can make exemplary parents and should be treated equal to all other parents?
Well, it's because I turned on the lights, looked under the bed, and didn't find any monsters -- just dirty laundry in desperate need of washing... soiled clothes that I had shoved under there.
