I have not told my dad that I'm gay either, because I don't come from a touchy-feely family, and I'm not touchy-feely myself, but it was a good example to set for the rest of the crazy far-right anti-gay crowd.
????  I thought touchy-feeliy refers to family that share hugs, kisses, and says I love you fairly often. What's that got to do with announcing your sexuality.

Robby, I merged your thread into the already existing thread about Portman.

I also used your title, as it explains better what the thread is about.

HIV is certainly character-building. It's made me see all of the shallow things we cling to, like ego and vanity. Of course, I'd rather have a few more T-cells and a little less character. Randy Shilts

'I'm Not Gay. So I'm Not Going To Marry One.'
Retiring Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.) said that he won't be following Sen. Rob Portman's (R-Ohio) recent support for gay marriage.

I'm not a woman, so I'm not going to pay them fairly.

I'm not a poor, so they can go to bed hungry.

I'm not a towelhead, so they should stay out of this Christian nation.

Why isn't this guy running again?  "The other folks are voting."

At least he's not THAT dumb. Sees the demographics and rather than living in pretend land and losing an election (e.g. Republicans 2012), and certainly not willing to evolve with social mores, he's bowing out...

Ta ta.  Take the other dinosaurs with you on your way out the door.
