The JC Penney Ad Featuring Two Real-Life Gay Dads
Homophobia should be tolerated as long as it’s expressed in a calm, civilized manner.
“I’d do me.”
I guess my little blog here has gotten a boost in Google rankings ’cause I’m picking up more traffic through search engine queries. Some of these searches are pretty general – “gay blog” or “gay relationships” – but others are quite specific, and I thought they deserved to be addressed in a weekly post.
So without further ado, may I present to you Week 1 of Very Specific Google Questions:

Remember that scene in When Harry Met Sally where Harry explains why men and women can’t be friends?
“The sex part always gets in the way,” he says.
Then I thought maybe this rule applied to gay men as well – a demographic known for being sex-crazed and superficial.

Without a doubt, the most common question I get is, “How do I come out?”
For closeted people, it’s more than a question – it’s a brain-eating amoeba that chews away at your hope and sanity. (And the only prescription is more cowbell – sorry, couldn’t help it.)
In my opinion, there is no right or wrong way to come out.
Sure, there are less stressful ways to come out – like telling your best friend in private as opposed to your homophobic mom finding gay porn on the computer – but in the end, your secret is out and you’re forced to deal with it.
And so you grow and you learn – two words synonymous with fear. Think about it: How can you grow up emotionally without ever feeling nervous or scared?
