    Long time no see, Empty Closets :slight_smile: I was reading this article today and I just knew in my gut I needed to post this to EC. It might already be floating around here somewhere, but just in case it isn't, he I go...

    The article is from http://tinywarrior.livejournal.com/179683.html

    Here is a little piece I found really great, but I highly recommend you go to that link and read the entire thing. It is not very long, but an excellent read.

    "A few years later, he was playing the game of Life with his brother and declared that he was going to marry a boy. He was six. His four-year-old brother insisted that he couldn’t marry a boy. He has to marry a girl, doesn’t he, Mom? I told them that each of them could marry a boy or a girl. It doesn’t matter as long as you are happy and a good person. He happily zoomed along in his car with two little plastic blue guys in the front seat."

    Now I go back to studying for finals and doing my thing. Hope you are all doing well!

    I liked the "He happily zoomed along in his car with two little plastic blue guys in the front seat." line as well.

    What a wonderful story:slight_smile:

    It was written back in 05, so he'd be 14 now. I wonder if it turned out that he was gay...
