"Probably "sexual minority" would be the best word to use for all these different groups.  LGBTIQA or whatever is the norm is kind of cumbersome.  We are all sexual minorities in comparison to gender selected…"

Milo Morris replied to Ian Wilson's discussion expectations to conform; is this offensive? in the group Out to Build Bridges
"I don't think its offensive. I was raised to behave like a respectable black man. Adults in my family would admonish my brothers and I to not act like "those niggers in the street." Likewise, I am definitely one of those homosexuals…"

"The whole issue of men conforming to their father's archetype is much of what drives suicide of gay men.  Traditionally if you couldn't live up to your father's expectations on sexual orientation you would be really in…"

Milo Morris replied to Milo Morris's discussion Definitions in the group Out to Build Bridges

I found this on FB. Suits me to a T.

Soldier leaves legacy much larger than 'he was gay'

I'm posting this everywhere I hang online. I've been amazed by this young man ever since his story first broke in March.

Rosemount, Minnesota (CNN) -- Andrew Wilfahrt changed his gait in the weeks before going off to basic training. He walked more upright. He bulked up with weights. He spoke with a deep Robocop voice. He acted "manly."



Through the eyes of his parents, Jeff and Lori, it was all a bit…

Hi Milo! I opened my fortune cookie from last night just this morning, and it read, "Get to the nitty gritty of things in all dealings". So with that in mind, I just wanted to tell you that I really like your style.

And please don't take this the wrong way,
but I think I love you! :)

Howdy, former NFCS frequenter! It has been months or years since I was a regular there myself, but I recognize your name. I was "Baritonobasso" there. :-)

It's too bad there are so many Christians who believe we are sinners because we are gay.  Perhaps they recognize something in themselves.  I don't dispute that we are sinners, but so are str8 people.  I don't think any of us chose to be gay.  Why would we. My addiction was booze.  What's yours?  I have been off the booze for 14 years now.

wedding ring box

Hey everyone,My best friend's fiancée just asked me to build a box for their wedding rings to use in the ceremony. Has anyone here ever made something similar or have any advice? I found a design I like here http://imgur.com/a/7sPww and I have a beautiful piece of bloodwood that I want to use for the top. I've never built anything like this so I'm definitely open for input.See More
