The Dads (surely you remember them from previous articles) are worried that their son, Jason, will grow up with no sense of tradition. It's difficult enough parenting as a gay couple, striking new ground with every step; the child needs some sense of continuity. Not wishing to inflict their own religious stereotypes on him and being more inclined to paganism (or priapism) than to regular churchgoing, they've decided to teach him the religions of the world. Christianity seems a good place to start, since many of Dad 1's forebears were Catholic priests. "Besides," they reason, "if we start early, he'll have more time to get over it later on."

When Elizabeth Katz was 14, she had an experience that forever changed her life. "I had an experience I don't think very many people have," she says, now 18 and a first-year student at Vassar College.
"It was some sort of voice in the back of my head," she says. "I was sitting on my bed, alone in my room and the little voice said: 'Hey, know what? You're gay.' And it was just boom, everything made sense.

Before I was born, Janis Ian was making beautiful music. And with her spare, acoustic recent album "Revenge," the tradition continues. Going into the interview, I was more familiar with her humorous and poignant columns in The Advocate. For some reason, although I had picked her CDs up in stores, I never bought them.
Today's Dr Phil was about a kid who went to school in my town, Coweta, Oklahoma. They actually showed the high school. What I find really odd is that I don't remember much in the way of typical bullying...alot of name calling and stuff, but very little typical bullying.
I did not do well on my math test! Well, the first part anyway. I just didn't have time, which is weird, because I always finish her tests, but this time, not so much! Oh well, I have massive part two tomorrow, and I'll study my ass off for it! I'm getting a bit psyched for the two plays I'm going to be writing/acting in! Gah! Good ideas and fun people are good! And perhaps it'll look good on my college apps...
Speaking of that, do any of you have any sort of relation to Loyola of Chicago? I'm seriously looking there (it's the only sort of school I really like in my restrictions set by parents), and have heard really mixed reactions about it.
Yes, my dear friends
Our favorite blonde who likes to stake things with bumpy foreheads will be leaving us. After this season is the demise of the hit show Buffy the Vampire Slayer. One more tv show with homosexuality in it gone....
Are YOU Republican?
My short story: And this actually kinda happened. I had drifted off and then realize the water was over my face.
It turns out that a new development arose when I least expected it.
There is a new guy in my life. I met him last night, we talked, and we're going to give things a try.
... and the other guy is going to have to deal this time.
No, I'm not doing this just to get back at him.
I'm not even sure if I want to get back at him.
But I think things are going to be a little more interesting now.
