Not enough like Twitter.

Excellent column with or without Vicodin. The only slip I saw was: "a healthy gay person successfully integrates his sexual and emotional needs." That should be "a healthy person ...." Separating the sex life from the love life is unhealthy for straights too.
As for religion, let me plug the Unitarian Universalist church. The one I attend is radically inclusive and doesn't give a damn what you think about God as long as you're polite about it.

Dan, WHACK's letter should have tripped your "How in hell did THAT happen?" sensor. I doubt that WHACK is clearing his history to protect other people's sensibilities. People with delicate sensibilities don't check other people's browser histories--in fact, no one checks another person's history unless they're looking for dirt. WHACK is protecting himself from his nosy wife, but not very cannily or bravely. If he had brains, he'd load in a bogus history, pure as driven snow. If he had balls, he'd leave his real history there and dare her to make an issue of it. Me, I'd load it up with divorce lawyers' websites and see what she had to say about that. If he's surfing kiddy-porn sites, she should dump him; if not, he should dump her.

Where does this obligation to tell your lovers about your sex-change operation come from? Do lovers have a right to know about everything that's happened to your bits? Do they have a right to know you've your breasts augmented, your hymen surgically removed, your vagina tightened up, your vas deferens cut? (The last, yes, if they want to have children with you.)

Or is it like the obligation to tell your lovers that one of your grandparents was African-American, because some people would be horrified to learn that they were fucking a quadroon?

If so, it's an "obligation" that never existed. There's no obligation to cater to anyone's bigotry.

@121: Nice try, but the question was not "do barren/sterile people have an obligation to tell their lovers they can't have children."
