“For what it’s worth: it’s never too late… to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you’ve never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. And if you find that you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again.”

We teach little boys that they’re not supposed to cry and we teach little girls to spend their lives wondering what men are thinking of them.

Gay kids get none of that. Not one bit of it. Read the rest of this entry »

“Certainly, there are those who would argue, ‘but same-sex desires are disordered’. Without getting into an argument about that specifically (which inevitably becomes a win-lose scenario), I would simply acknowledge that there is dis-order in so much of our human experience. Yet all of the order and dis-order come together to form and shape the identity and experience of an individual – and that individual is known and loved by God.”

“The fear of male homosexuality is the fear of the loss of male dominance in our society — if everybody gets equally sexualized and equally open to having sex with everybody else then the whole system of male dominance gets called into question
