TheGuyNextDoor saidWow Johnny,, that's really sad! Do they live in the same city as you?
The entire deal has been a huge hardship. I am proud of young gay men like CALVIN who come out and have a supportive family. It is family who are the most important right?
No......not anymore. I did not go to Thanksgiving today, I went for a long walk and soaked in the tub and had a bag of popcorn...lol I am not saying this for any reason other than I noticed his post and I am offering some contrast. I have a very checkered past and present with my sexuality.
I am not much in the mood for Christmas either. It seems that when you have so much hate perpetrated on you that the wind just gets kicked out of you. I used to like doing so many things. After this summer, when it all started...I just want away,
I am going to write my books and tell about it...you might find it .....I dunno...sad.
....and yes they do live here. My parent's, sisters and all...I was invited over to my aunts house today....I am so glad I did not go. When I cam home from my walk she forwarded this email to me. It made me ill. IT'S A FUCKING NIGHTMARE!!

They are all so consumed with it. They eat sleep and drink this shit. I do not enjoy being around ANY OF THEM. The millions they spent could have provided dinners for many hungry and homeless this time of year.....IT'S ALL HATE>..all of it!!
