    Having been born and raised in Kalamazoo (before moving to California), this is wonderful news. When I was growing up there, it was a conservative–albeit moderately so–community with several colleges/universities and arts (theater, dance, museums) outlets and gay bars. You could be gay and people would ask if you were a “college student”. We were labeled “An All American City” back in the 60’s. Some of the best gay parties were held on farms in the rural area. It was just in the last few years I started reading about gay bashings at Western Michigan University that I became worried (along with influx of Idaho-like survialist groups in Michigan). Good to know that the battle is more won than lost there. Yay for Kalamazoo!

    I also forgot to mention that old broad should get her facts straight (pardon the pun), but the American Psychological Association doesn’t look for gay genes; however there have been many studies that show homosexuality is more nature than nurture. And, yes, it is a civil rights issue. Like all of her ilk, she pulls her thoughts and facts out of her ample, wrinkled ass. It must be so difficult to actually have to be an adult–maybe that’s why they’re so cranky. It’s never too late to start growing up, you overweight, slovenly, pudgy hunk of straightness.
