It was years later when I learned the source of her fear and opinion of lesbians and sexuality and it knocked the wind right out of me!
When Does COMING OUT End?
S Lynn Knight

Probably the most interesting part, which leaves the reader with something to analyze and make a decision (judgement) for themselves and yet it was left out.

I look forward to hearing more of your story. As I age, I realize two things:

1) We all live different lives

2) In the past I have overly sympathized for people with abnormal conditions; that is, desires that are obstructed due to race, gender, age, religion, sexuality.

This realization begets a necessity; for me this must change. I can be empathetic without having to give up anything.

Whereas before I was joining causes and shaming others, I no longer feel that is my place. It’s nice to hear other people gain a voice, courage, etc. but I have to stop living my life for other people.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
