A Quote From the Closet

One of the reasons this blog exists is to speed progress so that no adult will have to hide their identity, sexual orientation, or love for other adults. Nobody should have to live in the closet out of fear of prosecution, bullying, or discrimination.

Here's quote from a woman who is in a consanguinamorous relationship with her father. She is a participant at Kindred Spirits forum.
I've never told anyone about our relationship. There are times when I wish I could be more open about it. It feels like people never get to know the real me, because I can't let them into this huge part of me.

People have been enduring this kind of isolation for so long. Why? Why should adults still have to hide? If someone can't be open with you about who they are and who they love, they can't have a real, close friendship with you. If your own family members can't tell you because you'll reject them, or even rat them out to be prosecuted, they are unfairly imprisoned emotionally.


Won't you please support your family, friends, classmates, coworkers, and neighbors who are going through the struggle for freedom and equal rights?

To prevent spam, comments will have to be approved, so your comment may not appear for several hours. Feedback is welcome, including disagreement. I only delete/reject/mark as spam: spam, vulgar or hateful attacks, repeated spouting of bigotry from the same person that does not add to the discussion, and the like. I will not reject comments based on disagreement, but if you don't think consenting adults should be free to love each other, then I do not consent to have you repeatedly spout hate on my blog without adding anything to the discourse.

If you want to write to me privately, then either contact me on Facebook, email me at fullmarriageequality at yahoo dot com, or tell me in your comment that you do NOT want it published. Otherwise, anything you write here is fair game to be used in a subsequent entry. If you want to be anonymous, that is fine.

IT IS OK TO TALK ABOUT SEX IN YOUR COMMENTS, BUT PLEASE CHOOSE YOUR WORDS CAREFULLY AS I WANT THIS BLOG TO BE AS "SAFE FOR WORK" AS POSSIBLE.
