| ||it's okay to be gay|
Historically there have been a subset of people in the population who are gay. They can't help it. I know this because I know gay people and they've always been gay.
There are also people who have sex change operations. I do not know of any myself (there's one person I know professionally that really seems like she used to be a man, but I'm not going to just go up and ask) but I have read books from them and they express their anguish over knowing from an early age that they are of the wrong sex, and go to great pain and financial sacrifice to 'fix' the situation.
Me and Melissa were talking about how we would feel if our kid or kids turned out to be gay. We absolutely would have no problem with it. The gay people I know are really warm, kind, wonderful people and are not able to change just because one group or society tells them that they are wrong.
Being gay is not wrong. The gay people I know are not able to change. In our building in Seattle, for some reason there are a lot of gay couples and I have no problem with it at all. But being born gay and trying to go straight just because society or a group says you have to makes as much sense as forcing somebody who is straight to go gay. Trying to be something you aren't is a lonely place to be.
