    but I've been reading some of the comments in the diaries about Jason Collins' coming out, and how pissed off some people have been at him because he was engaged to a woman for 8 years knowing that he was gay.

    When you think about it, it's the undiscussed "collateral damage" of the "ex-gay" movement; all he was doing was trying to turn himself straight by being involved with a woman, but ultimately it (not surprising) didn't work. But it's easier and safer to call Collins an asshole than it is to lay the blame at the feet of a society and culture that says gays are evil and disgusting.

    Just random griping here...carry on.
