Coming Out! Not The Only Reason Relationships Fail

“I’m just not attracted to you...We’re not compatible...Our goals are different...” all valid justifications for calling it quits in a relationship. Yet, even those with perfect hearing don’t tune into the true undertones of the subliminal messaging, until the megaphone is held up to their ear, and blaringly your spouse says...”I’m gay and I’m coming out!” Not necessarily in my "Top 10 Ways On How To 'Come Out!"

There Is No Real Answer! Really!

Not to be flippant but there’s no real answer. At least that’s my belief. As much as you want to know, “Why did you marry me and then tell me you’re gay?” there may not be ‘an answer!’ Read carefully between the lines here...there may not be an answer [singular]! Quite honestly, there’s more than likely a long list of answers, and none of them will completely satisfy your need, want, and desire to be absolved and to make them [your husband or your wife, depending on the scenario] pay.

Marriage equality, as we've pointed out before, has been one of the big winners in this year's presidential election.

Rachel Maddow Is Not An 'Angry Young Man' — And Neither Am I

It seems like a million years ago that I was an introverted, closeted lesbian, forced to spend every day in a suffocating classroom, in a rural farm community. Looking at me now, you would probably never know that I came from a primarily white, protestant, homophobic town in Southeast Michigan.
