"Gay until proven straight." - Naomi Toby
It's time for a little reality check......thanks to my children!
We were sitting around the Shabbos table with two of our daughters, my eldest daughter who is visiting us from Israel and my youngest child who is home from camp for week before she returns to Stern College.
The topics of discussion were varied and sometimes intense, and very often they center around the "shidduch crisis" and of course, being gay and Orthodox.
It is a sad commentary of our time that so many marriages of young people are dissolving after a relatively short period of time.
Being a single-minded person, I made a comment that maybe some of these marriages are dissolving because one of the partners are gay (since I now view everything through "gay lenses").
It was at this point that my youngest daughter looked at me and said that I paint everything with the same "gay" brush.
She then stated that my motto should be "Gay until proven straight."
