Please remember that even if you have come to the realization that you are gay, I don't have to accept you. There will always be people who don't want you in their lives or the lives of their children. As human beings we have the right to choose who we associate with and should not be forced to accept behavior we find personally abhorant. If I don't want you in my life, I should be able to avoid you. Likewise you should be able to avoid me. This is especially true if you or I are bullied or find each other repulsive. Blacks could not turn from the white, black, arab or chinese slavers that they found to be repulsive bullies. Men, women and children were killed or beaten into submission for centuries. The argument is not the same.
