I decided to respond before I read other member's replies to keep my answers as honest as possible. I'll read the thread after I post
When did you realise you were'nt straight?
Probably around the age of 10 I knew I wasn't like all the other boys. I don't think I was a femmie kid, but I wasn't into sports and all the stuff
the other guys were into.
But I was always building tree forts and tunneling under ground, and pretty much got on well with the other kids.
How old were you when you realised the difference between
straight, bi & gay?
I'm not sure I have that figured out yet, and I'm 44.
I've found that people are willing to change their sexuality depending on the conditions of their environment. It mostly comes down to what's
I'll bet that most of the totally straight guys have had some sort of sexual contact with another guy while growing up, even if it was something as
simple as wanking after school with a mate.
I don't think anyone is 100% one way or the other.
What type of religious backgroud are you from?
No formal religious training.
My family didn't go to church on a regular basis, but we spent some summers at Catholic retreats. My grandmother had a large influence on my
religious beliefs, she was the one that encouraged me to read the bible, and I thank her for that.
I would have to say that I'm agnostic today, I'll keep my options open until I have more information.
What type of moral support do/have you had?
Not sure what you mean.
I don't think I need any moral support because there's no conflict.
Are you totally out of the closet, or only with friends and/or family?
I have had a husband for over 17 years, and everybody knows it.
Have you ever faced descrimination for a job because of your sexual
But I live in Canada, and it's a non-issue in this country. I couldn't imagine an employer being worried about what you do in your bedroom as long
as you don't do it in the office.
"The Canadian government has no business in the nation's bedrooms."
Have you ever been threatened and/or attacked because of your
There was some teasing in high school, but I never got beat-up for being gay.
Do you, personally, favor/practice monogamy or polygamy?
Monogamy for the most part for 17+ years, but we have had the oportunity to walk on the wild side once in a while. But it's a mutual
How accepting have those you've told or have found out been?
I've never had an adverse reaction from someone I've told.
Also, our families have no problem with our relationship. We both come from large families with many brothers, sisters, neices, nephews, aunts and
uncles, cousins, etc..
They all accept us the same as any other couple in the family.
We have friends and neighbours that have no issues about having a gay couple next door. And people don't worry that we're going to perv on their
kids, we're just like everyone else.
On a scale of 1-10, 1 being straight 10 being flamboyant, how do you
act in general?
On a scale of 1-10 it would be zero.
You would never have any indication that I was gay unless I told you, but I don't keep it secret from anyone.
