I did. She played on a stereotype. Her entire post was satire (good news...bad news)

He's GAY. Therefore, rights and laws that apply to everyone else, don't apply to him.

Thank those damn Republicans.

Seemed like an obvious joke to me. No matter how many athletes come out of the closet, it will be a long time before the macho meathead jock stereotype seems dated and not applicable.

Oh I don't know. i think by 13 you have a pretty good idea as to what your parents will freak out over.
Sometimes, you think you know how someone will react and they react differently.

I saw Cher on a talk show a while back. This is a woman who has worked with a lot of gay people in the music and film businesses. Yet she acknowledged that she wasn't immediately cool with her daughter's/(son's) gender identity issues. I found that pretty surprising.

This is true.

That my mother freaked out when I told her that Dickie was not white totally surprised me. That was not how she raised me, yet when it came down to her own child, she could not deal with it.

She's better now, but the episode has tainted our relationship.

Exactly! My good friend's mom freaked out when my friend was dating a black man. Her mom's best friend is black, and she raised her children to be color blind as well. Her mom surprised all of us!
