If you don't worry about what others think then don't be taken aback when you get smacked. There's "currently politically correct" and there is common sense. They aren't the same.I am who I am. I won't be "in the closet" nor will I be politically correct in everything that I post to appease everyone. I debate, but I don't aggressively attack anyone for their beliefs. My own family has serious issues with my lifestyle. Being they aren't homosexual and don't even know anyone who is I never expected them to understand. Some people just never will as the only thing they really know on the issue is what the church and their parents and peers have taught them. Obviously for those of us who live with it, our views are going to be more tolerant. What option do we have? At least living in this country affords each of us the freedom to live the way that we wish... for the most part anyway.
And finally, life rewards actions in a cause and effect way. Your actions. Not mine or anyone elses. You have a major role in where you are right now.
