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.
Okay, so two months ago a guy from my real life who barely knew me told me over the internet that he liked me. Against my no dating policy at the time and my better judgment, I told him I liked him too. All was happy.
Two weeks later, after talking online and basically deciding that we would be dating when school started again, he said that it wouldn't work and that we would be better friends than boyfriends. He had no real reason for the change of heart, and I was hurt.
it's time for another round of "I'm mid-way through this paper and it's killing me!", folks!
i think i'm gonna be in a causal type relationship with this girl. more like friends that are close physically too. i'll see what happens when i see her again but that should be interesting. she doesnt want a commited realationship, and i don't really think i could either that this point. i just need someone to hold me.
theres a girl who lives across the country that has a crush on me. thats not going to happen though, for many reasons, distance being the main one. thats been stressing me out, to add on to everything else.
I made an Amazon.com Wish List
First of all, there is a new Christopher Guest movie coming out! "A Mighty Wind"! MWAHAHAHA! I'm excited and dorkishly looking forward to it! I saw the preview for it while watching "Chicago" with a neat friend I haven't seen in a while
So today I went to Best Buy to pick up my copy of Queer as Folk season two on DVD.
I know, I know, Queer as Folk is trashy now blah blah blah...
