Well Said!

I stole this from Curtis at Let Me Tell You All About It, Sweetie. Why try to reinvent the wheel.

Please tell me why so many homophobic people refer to my "life style".

I'm offended by this term.

I mean, what the hell do they think I do with my free time?

I am no different than anyone else.

I work my ass off at an unfulfilling job. I pay my bills. I pay my taxes. I do my best to keep my house in order. I try to be a good citizen. I try to be a good neighbor. I worry about the future of the planet. I recycle. I'm usually in bed by 10:00 PM. I give to charity. I help others in need. I just want to have a comforting home. I feed the cat. I visit with the elderly. I go to Mass. I work in my garden. I argue with my spouse. I support high school sports. I just want to have a few good friends who understand and appreciate me. And on the weekend, I watch a film, drink a few beers, and go to bed.

I don't have a "life style".

I have a life.

The Right has done a very good job (to give them credit) at taking control of the language. And that is a very bad thing; who controls the language has the upperhand.
It is very difficult to obtain it back, alas.
