After watching that I feel so blessed. Yes I may well be one of the youngest to of come out here at RJ; I was out by 7 in the 1960s, out in the great Aussie Bush; where a guy would get beaten up for wearing white socks., as only a poofter would want to wear white socks So imagine what they did to me, a wee child who stood up for same sex love and would not back down; no matter what they did to me.
So my life has never been a lie, and nor did I ever want to be a girly boy either. So I did not have to be the best in football or such things, as I was already accepting of myself. But I did work harder as a lumber jack as a man. This was for no other reasion but to show not only was I as good but better; and I had their backs. Yes coming out at such a young age where there are grown up males who never had the balls I did as a wee child. I'm proude my life was never a lie, and I have been accepting of myself from a young age too, and thats why the hatful and brutal left here can not and do not hurt me, no matter how hard they have tried; just because I do not vote the same as them, or see myself as a victom of the real world.
I only hope that someday they will feel the inner peace and love and self acceptance I have lived with for a long time now. I do not see my sexuality defining me as a whole, or see myself as a minority either, as I live out in the real world.
I am so blessed to of had the sun of good fortune shine down on me; I feel sorry your son Sally even with allthe blessings he was to start of his life with. He still felt he had to work so hard to feel equal. Must be nothing more than a state of mind, as it's not a struggle I had, oh but I had to fight.
