Having raised my son, who is gay, as a devout Unitarian, I can say that I'm happy he'll get to experience the infatuation/obsession (which in my marriage has lasted 20+years) plus what comes later as a couple matures together.
I'm also happy that my son will not have to spend all the time and energy that Mr. Weed must spend fighting his sexuality. I don't care how happy a picture he paints, that cannot be easy or pleasant.

Jesus, Dan, make up your fucking mind. You and other community leaders are part of why he got such a light sentence. Congratulations.

I wept watching him speak, which I've never done before. It was powerful. It's not everything but it surely is a big something.

I appreciate the support of liberal Christians, I really do. But my god, at what point do you say "I cannot identify with these people any more?"

Maybe it's living in the American south, maybe it's having grown up Catholic but I am so sick of having to deal with other people's religions. Just leave my family alone. Leave my kid alone. He's not hurting anyone but the line of people that want to hurt him is a mile long and while not all religious people are hurtful, everyone in that line is holding a holy book of some kind to justify their desired actions.

@22, Well said.

I think back on my four year old son, proudly wearing one of his tutus or dresses and it breaks my heart to think of someone "correcting" him and enrages me to think of someone actually hurting him.

Why would anyone want to tell "everyone" what kind of underwear they have on? Is that part of the kink? I'm confused.

Also, I'm concerned for OT's safety if by "everyone" he means telling the men and women he serves with. Yes, DADT is over but that's not the same as all parts of the military being safe spaces.

@202 You are confusing an unwillingness to keep acting as doormats with hostility towards Christianity.

I'm sure it's a painful process to go from an unquestioned majority to being expected to actually respect other's pov but you know what? Welcome to the real world. Most of us have learned how to get along with all sorts of folks and you can too.

This "we're the real victims" act by the majority (ie Christians) is getting very, very tired. I'm glad this video went viral because anyone with half a brain can see that the walk-out was both pre-planned and pitiful.

Keep preaching, Dan! The world needs to hear it now more than ever.

@6 wrote, "i'm willing to bet there isn't a single convincing letter in dan's inbox that says, "my spouse and i have mismatched libidos, and we're both equally committed to and happy with monogamy for the rest of our lives."

I've never written to Dan Savage, I imagine most of us happy with our relationships do not, but that describes my spouse and I.

Over the course of 25 years, we've worked it out. It's just part and parcel of being us. At first we both had sky high libidos but mine has gone down with the birth of our child and then a chronic illness.

We talk about it, we try different things, we get mad and sad and sick to death of talking about it and trying different things. But we keep going, together, just the two of us...equally committed to and happy with monogamy.

I'm in the had to DVR it crowd. I know that it's not on too late, I'm just too damn old!

Loved the show. Dan, you are fantastic to watch! You're a perfect balance of wisdom and compassion.
