Where being fat is genetic but being gay is a lifestyle choice.

I saw that online today and just laughed my ass off. So true.

I don't want to be the weird girl who runs around hugging strange lezzies in the meat department, but it's probably going to happen one of these days when I get too homesick for San Diego.

I have yet to see PDA from boys in my town (lots in the city though) but lesbian couples are pretty open here. It's a far cry from the SoCal suburb where my mom got fired when her boss saw her grocery shopping with her girlfriend.


Quoting TurtleSquish:

they are your family! And hey, if i wasn't so anti wal mart I would get my groceries there...cheaper!

Quoting GirlWSlingshot:

It's one of very few places to get groceries around here so they're aren't many options. Lol



I swear every time I see a lesbian family I want to go up and hug them for being out in the Bible belt. I'm the child of a lesbian and a gay man so in a way, the GLBT is kind of my extended family.




Quoting TurtleSquish:

holy crap that's so much different than when I was there. That's fantastic. of course, most gay people where I live won't even shop at walmart lol

Quoting GirlWSlingshot:

I love my Bible belt town where gay families openly hold hands in Walmart.

Sadly, it's harder for men to be out than women. Men tend to be bashed more, and killed more. People think lesbians are "hot" *eyeroll*

If someone came up to me and my wife and said "hey, i just wanted to say it's great that you guys are so out and in love and i want to hug you" we would totally hug them and talk about it for years.

Alright. I'm totally going to do it. Lol.

I miss my boys from back home. I'm a bit of a fruit fly so I've been going through withdrawals.

Omg that is crazy! I live in the middle but I also live a pretty liberal city.

Quoting TurtleSquish:

That's fantastic! I haven't been to the bible belt in about 6 years, but when I was there, i had servers refuse to serve me at restaruants because I'm lesbian. :) It's cool that it's getting better

Quoting TrouserMouse:

Being gay is more accepted than being fat where I am from and I live on the edge Bible  Belt...lol.

(depending on what boundaries you use)

I try and try and try....then I try to think of something serious and snot winds up everywhere.

The city I live in is very tolerant. My DD made me lol because her high school has a private bathroom for the six transgender students enrolled there and she spent her entire freshman year trying to find the bathroom. I know where it is, but I'm playing the long game.


Quoting TurtleSquish:

LOL try not to snot
