Ug, you have my sincere sympathies. But HOW LONG before it gets as bad in Texas and other states... unless many of us conservatives who have been silent (such as myself) because of intimidation or not wanting to be called "bigot" DO something about raising the awareness of the public? Just in the last 3 days I've learned more about what the homophile activists are doing than I've learned in the prior two years.... and I'll hasten to add that with the opening of my eyes, I've been entirely grossed out!!!!!
We all have been grossed out. But if we close our eyes it will get worse. I do what I can, contibute when I can, where I can. Keeping informed is crutial. It does get very disheartening at times.
Reading posts here on FR at least helps us feel we aren't alone in feeling that way! And gives us valuable information!
