commented on SL Letter of the Day: The Birthday Girl
LW, Dan was very gentle with you. You did a horrible thing. Even if you didn't give him herpes (herpes! not cold sores on your genitals) you still did a horrible thing. You're selfish and shortsighted and apparently unwilling to take responsibility for your actions. Yuck.

commented on SL Letter of the Day: Do Monogamous Gay Couples Exist?
It embarrasses me to think that I was once this young and opinionated. Luckily I never wrote a letter that would prove it for all time.
The LW is lucky that he wrote to Dan and got such a thoughtful response from both Dan and Jeremy. I, like so many of the other commenters, wouldn't have been so gentle.
I feel fortunate to be in a relationship with a man that I love dearly and am devoted to. I feel committed to him and his happiness and the health of our relationship. This is all a surprise to me. I'm 40 and have never been interested in monogamy or even being in a relationship. It wasn't until I met my boyfriend that I started thinking about things in the long term and learning the true benefits of forming a partnership with someone.
I feel trust and loyalty and respect and adoration for my boyfriend, all while still being attracted to other men. We're open, and I've never been happier.
It would never occur to me to tell some one how to run their relationship, and I find it offensive that some young idiot has the temerity to suggest that my relationship is superficial. But I've mellowed over the years and know that I'll get over it. I also think that in a few years this kid will pull his head out of the sand and think before he dashes of a plaintive letter. We'll all be better off for it.

The reason that the LGBT community will ultimately win is because of people like you. Despite the hardships and hatred that have been heaped on you, you have persevered and triumphed. Now you can be there to support your nephew to make his road easier. We're all lucky to have you.

Why does she have to treat it like a big shameful secret? She's "willing to keep his secret if he's honest with her"? Fuck her. No wonder he doesn't call her as much anymore. She sounds horrible.

Obama can't defend DADT one day and make an IGBP video the next.
Words are cheap. His actions show how he really feels.
