I think it ends a few days later than that.

<quoted text>Aww, thank you, baby! You made my morning.
A bunch of us are going up to the tiny town of Joshua Tree up in the mountains above Palm Springs this morning. It is their 5th Gay Pride festival. I find it moving and brave that a small town like that, with probably not a lot of LGBT citizens is being courageous enough to stand up in public this way and want to support them as much as we can. I'll let you know how it turned out.
Have a great weekend.
This is very kind. And yes, I see the importance.

I hope it's very fun. I also hope there is at least one moment that reminds you, "This is why I keep doing this." Those are the best of all.

Curteese, I don't know how some of you stick with this. In another thread where I responded, an obviously, obviously antigay poster *deliberately* twisted what I said in an attempt to construct an entire set of points which are ... A LIE.

Yet my original post is right on the board: Anyone alive, anyone living on this planet, can read my post and *see* that the antigay poster is lying about my intention.

I believe this country's lack of morality, the absolute destruction of any moral compass it has ever had, is a bloodbath originating with the antigay, and in which they are drowning in a blame that chokes them day, after day, after day.

This is really off topic, but I can't private message you, so on Saturday we went up to Joshua Tree. It is a tiny town, I thought it would be scary, but they have a full on art colony set up between 4 or 5 houses and several shops along the main highway.

The whole thing was set up as almost a backyard party and they had two stages for entertainment and about 5 studios. Everyone I talked to knew everyone else in town and it was fun and moving and very brave for them to be so OUT in such a tiny place. Two or three all said the same thing, they lived there for "quality of life" thinking Palm Springs too big.

I came away from there highly proud of them and even bought a stupid little art piece, which was kind of cute to help support them. I will go back.

I'm familiar enough with the regular posters that I can recognize their style of writing and tone, etc. I can spot a hating faker within the first three words on their lying posts and false names. Once or twice I have been burnt, but for the most part, that is rare and you don't have to worry or apologize at all, I can spot a false one who might try to blacken your name immediately.

Have I blocked private messages, possibly? I *did* receive them from one other person (who wasn't on the boards long, he hated it here) and we corresponded for a while elsewhere.

I love to death that you call the art piece "stupid" because it implies that you bought it SOLELY to support them -- which actually gives it value! I mean, right there, the piece has enormous symbolic value and I wonder if one might not even call it beautiful for that very reason.

I love that you felt this was valuable. This, to me, in a nutshell, encapsulates my *normal* attitude where social issues are concerned: support, love, reaching out, connection, forgiveness, etc. etc. The board here only ever sees me in a *massively* vicious state because of the antigay and because I believe they force others to fight them that way. I turn almost "sociopathic" with them; I feel nothing and in my eyes, the sole goal is to incapacitate them (legally, by legal means) and ensure equality *at literally any legal cost whatsoever*, with ZERO regard for the worthless, filth-infected ditch pigs who get in the way.

LOLOLOLOL, RIGHT THERE, the attitude comes zooming right back into my speech. But then when I hear what you did, I become a being unrecognizable in that context, who hopes that your every minute during that day strengthened your resolve, your happiness, your wholeness and your belief that goodness makes life so very worthy.

:D

Don't these people act under the self-styled belief in a "moral compass" of some sort? Which derives directly and almost solely from religion.

I can't fathom their actions. By their own belief system, THEY ARE GOING STRAIGHT TO HELL for behaving this way. If that doesn't stop them, what in the goddamn hell are they preaching their own empty, shell-shocked bullshit to others for? What hope do they have to convince anyone? When I witness how they behave, I know *not* to listen to a word they say. Period.

I want to reiterate that I am glad you had such a wonderful time at Joshua Tree. Although I rarely speak personally on these boards, I will say that my life is removed from California and so I see it in almost mythic light that is difficult to explain. It's like this distant, magical place that (on occasion) gives the entire country hope.
