Now wait a minute! Bonnie, I don't know you or the
sender, but I just couldn't let this go by! You are
NOT reading it correctly. What the says is that he
does not wish to have an early death, be a criminal,
or to be a homosexual. I would say that most of us can
agree with 2/3 of that statement. I personally, as a
straight man, don't wish to be gay either. Just as I
bet most gay guys don't want to straight. One's
personnal preferences in the matter does not correlate
to any lack of respect or understanding.

I too read this original post twice, and the wording
is a bit odd. I think it could be interpretted as
saying that being gay "...isn't so great", which I
agree is not the kind of Sentiment I want to see on
this sight or on any other. But let's not get out of
hand with our attacks of others. As I have been
discussing with Fred Thompson, E-mail is not always
the most through medium of communication. I think this
Board could stand to be a bit more generous in our
interpretations.
