    I know a couple of transgendered people, but would not count them as friends or relatives.

    Curious that you left bisexuals off your list. An oversight maybe?

    I have several gay relatives.

    I have several gay friends.

    I do not currently know any transgendered people, but have in the past(and they where hilarious). I did kinda grow tired of seeing Ricky's boobs though. Do not have to see how the hormone treatment is working every single time you come over....

    Yes, an oversight but it was worse to leave off the option that the respondent is LBGT.

    Oh I know LOTS of bisexual women.

    You have to leave it off the list because ANYONE who says they don't know any women who are bisexual is beyond deluded. Hell, I'd argue that more women are bi than completely straight.

    For the sake of argument, bi also includes "bi-curious".

    For my part, two of my deceased uncles were gay. I also have had numerous gay friends and acquaintances over the years. One of my extended members is undergoing gender reassignment.
    Not that I'm aware of, but I live in a small Texas town where you just don't announce that kind of thing.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    I have at least one gay friend......I use to be friends with his partner but sadly he died from AIDS....I have no relatives who are gay that I know of.

    Not only do I have gay friends and have gays in my extended family ... I even have straight friends and family (in fact, even my wife is straight) ...

    I understad, but it's too bad that if there are LGBT people there, and given the poll results and percentages of the nation it's likely, they don't feel welcome to come out.

"Oh heavens! I thought you knew!" LOL She taught me to accept people as they are and without making an issue of differences. Guess it worked and I nothing changed my opinion of them after I knew.

    Their parents, as far as I know, never accepted that their sons were gay. It was never spoken of and the rest of the siblings, if any were anti-gay, never made an issue of it. No one ever boycotted a family reunion because they would attend.
    Back then sometimes most everyone knew but they didn't talk about it or only a few knew and everyone whispered about it. There wasn't much in between. Today, the gay couples show up for Thanksgiving.

    I like today's world better.

    I do too. My kids have grown up thinking, "What's the big deal?".
