I think I can say much the same, John Gorman. Growing up conservative, I should have taken on all those values.
I didn’t, because I knew what it felt like to be different and be bullied for it.
And even though I started my professional life as a military officer, I still gravitated toward people with open, liberal, accepting sensibilities.
I’m a big ole lefty because I’m small and gay.
I’m pretty darn sure about that.
