..your reasons for staying in the closet, it is your journey, not mine...
I wish others like you wouldn't have to question my recovery but for what ever reason it happens. I realize it is nothing personal but still it bothers me....
i do feel need to respond: 1) i'm not a closet case. i'm gay.
where i fail myself here is with inaction... i have this silly belief that gays in this country/community/ or on this board, actually care. people giggle when i say that i'd be fired for being gay. it is hilarious when we think about it, right?
so, consider the laughter. and that i equate the so called "gay community at large" to be selfish bastards. i mean - let's be real, thousands upon thousands of gay hiring managers have given me leads to a new job... right? lol.
and that same gay community probably considers me to be selfish too for not raising a rainbow flag and suing my boss for symbolically ending discrimination against gays, and then turning around to march on washington demanding marriage, etc. etc.
well, life doesn't work that way - in my view. i gave at the office years ago, and gave too much. there is nothing left for me to give. this time, i need to be on the receiving end. and the line is simply dead.
i've got at best 10 years left of a career, 15 years left to live and as far as i'm concerned now, its all down hill baby from here - just hang on to avoid coming up roadkill before its time. 2) i didn't question your recovery
practices. i simply stated that an airing of homophobia can lead to positive change.
