If I have offended you in any way whatsoever, it was not intended, and I am sorry. I really do want you to feel welcome here, because you truly are welcome here.
Not everybody agrees on everything. That is a part of life. I personally am more than happy to drop the subject of lesbiandom, since it does bother you a bit. I really do want to respect your desire to have peace when it comes to your sexuality.
I'm totally cool with it, and I am certain most of the members are. You know, in any given group, there are assholes. You'll face them in every aspect of your life. Unfortunately, the subject came up, which is partly my fault, and I apologize for those that can not accept you for who you are. You should be proud, not ashamed. :o)
Again, I am sincerely sorry for your personal anguish, and I am sorry for bringing up the subject of which led to other people's degradatory comments. I hope you remain with us, and you are one of the guys, and I'm sure there are others that will vouch for it.
