commented on SL Letter of the Day: Show This Woman Some Love
I am so sorry for how your family's religion has poisoned them against you and your nephew, but I know that it is their loss to miss the gift of being a part of your lives. He is so lucky to have you, as is the family you have made for yourself. I hope that you come out of this down period strong and happy and able to realize that there is nothing wrong with you and never has been, and that you bear no responsibility for how hateful and broken your family is. I can't imagine ever not loving one of my children, and I am so incredibly sorry for what you and your nephew have gone and are going through. I don't know how much it matters to you to have a stranger over the internet's support and love, but I am feeling such profound love and sorrow for you right now, and SO MUCH gratitude that you exist to make a difference in the life of your nephew and the people fortunate enough to know you and smart enough to love you.

commented on If You Know Your Gay Kid Is Being Brutally Bullied At His School...
I've asked myself why the hell any of those poor kids were still in schools where they were being bullied with almost every report of a gay kid committing suicide due to bullying. I just...don't get how you could leave your kid in that kind of situation, no matter what you had to do to stop it. I don't even want to think what my 17yo's life would have been like if we'd left her in school.
