She also asked me if another male coworker "attended our church" which was another phrase I had not heard in years.

Damn, there's another phrase I've never heard of regarding sexuality.  If I was ever asked, I probably answered that I attended The White Chapel Baptist Church.... :o

I really needed a handbook I guess.  Luckily, the acts came naturally.

i would be very tempted to pass along a note to her explaining your concerns in a very direct way.
she was so unprofessional in announcing your sexuality.
SHE is the one that needs some councelling! >:(

Hi Ford ... I would have been terribly offended and also a bit of feeling sorry for this woman if it had happend to me .

There are way to many good things that you shared with us about your thoughts on this matter for me to point out but it should be required reading for those people who refuse to come out when the only real reason they don't is sheer laziness and apathy . Its attitudes like hers that sends gay youth the message something is wrong with them and does more harm than most people can fathom . 

I do realize that for some people in some places what I said doesn't apply but it certainly seems to fit this individual . I feel strongly about this , its more than a pet peeve for me .     

mecch:
The notes and secrecy aside. The fake snide public put down of your sexuality suggests a self-hating bully?  Be careful around this person.

The note was pretty stupid, but the parts the I quoted are more annoying.  I think she's gonna be a shit-stirrer.  I wouldn't recommend this one as an acquaintance.
