Welcome to my site. This is a place where I'm sharing my experiences. As the site says, my orientation is gay. I am also an active Mormon, married to an amazing woman, and a father of a largish family.
I feel very little attachment to the popular uses of terms like gay, homosexual, ssa (same sex attracted), etc. In fact, I don't prefer to use any of these terms to describe people. Rather, I use them to describe an orientation. If my eyes are blue, I wouldn't say "I'm blue." Similarly, I would say "My orientation is gay," rather than "I'm gay." However, it doesn't bother me when others use the terms differently.
Please feel free to leave comments, but I do moderate them. I don't have a problem with comments with which I disagree. I do have a problem with comments that belittle others or use rude language. If you want to communicate with me without using the comments, please e-mail me: me1here1now at gmail.
My final disclaimer is that my experiences are mine. I expressly forbid anyone using my story as a measuring stick for themselves or for anybody else. If my experiences help someone, that's great. But I don't expect others to have my same experiences, stumbling blocks, successes, relationships, or anything else.
