    I'm pretty sure most of North American society has reached the point where people are ticked off more by smokers, if they don't smoke, than by gay people, if they're straight. If you've ever had to breach a mob/wall of smokers as you enter an office building or shopping mall, you know what I mean.

    As a non-smoker, I wouldn't want my kid seeing teenagers or adults smoking and thinking it's cool.

The other's dad was a career military man (not that there's anything wrong with that) who treated his son like he was a recruit in basic training his entire childhood; harsh and verbally abusive. He grew up wanting to be nothing like his dad and rejected everything he saw modeled as a man. Their own stories, not mine.
    Not every gay person grows up in an abusive household. These "stories" don't represent everyone who is gay.

    I pray for alll children these days - even though I wish I was born later so I'd be more technologically savvy, I would hate to be growing up today - I find my childhood was simpler and happier than many experience today.

    No it isn't. It is a wide range of views on one side, and a handful of social conservatives on the other.

    You think because I put "Undisclosed" that I'm ashamed of my political views? No, not at all. Most people would probably call me a liberal. I put "Undisclosed" so people will look at what I actually have to say rather than just what it says below my name.
    If your a Liberal identify yourself as such. Don'tt be ashamed of it............I am a Conservative and identify myself as such and am not wishy washy about my belief in Conservatism....In fact I wear it like a badge of courage.....You have to especially when truth be told that 75% of thee people in DP are die hard libberals.

    NP, disagreement with you is not a sign some one is liberal.
