I am tired of hiding. I am tired of trying to convince you all that I am something that I'm not. I need to tell my fellow eiC'ers that I am gay. I don't think I am a bad person because of that. I have no control over my sexual preference. If I could choose to be straight, I would love to be able to. I cannot choose to like women over men. This is my confession and I hope that hatred on the part of straight folks doesn't result towards me. I am just what I am and I was born that way. I have no control over it. I cannot choose to be heterosexual. If I could, I would probably do it. The truth is that a hetersoexual lifestyle is easier than a homosexual lifestyle. I hope that those of you who have accepted me as a "heterosexual" will also accept me for what I truly am, a **homosexual (correction--I had previously and accidentally written the word "heterosexual.")

I sincerely hope that the friendship that has been established between you guys and I prior to this revelation will go on unobstructed.

Sincerely yours,

Rafael David González

No offense, but I really don't give a damn! You are who you are... No one here should judge or give a damn either ;)
Edit: and I mean that in a good way FYI !

I'm sure I posted it somewhere, but you need to post in Off Topic and request it be moved by a mod or me -- who in turn should not leave a redirect.

Based on this, I didn't know if you were joking or not. I'm guessing you might want to fix the typo.

That said, either way, given you want to run the Mac OS on your iPhone, you're cool.

Who cares if he's gay, someone explain what the thread title has anything to do with this...

LOL! =) I'm not sure at this point what the thread title had to do with it all...

I have to admit that I was less than sober when I made the "reveal" I had been so longing to do. I probably couldn't have revealed/admitted everything that was lingering within had I been completely sober. I would like to humbly admit to everyone that I am grateful for the opportunity you've all provided to finally "come clean," as it was a big step for me, and I am grateful from the bottom of my heart for the positive reception that I have been given up to this point.

I would like to say that it was very difficult for me to "come clean," but you guy--my eiC family--have expressed that it was not a "big thing," and, for that, I will be eternally grateful.

I've never belonged to a more supportive forum....
What I went through with Tiberius recently, and now this show of solidarity.
This place rocks!
