British Bootboy Posted June 29, 2005 #51 Share Posted June 29, 2005 Your assumptions about our "grandparents" not knowing homosexuals are absolutely, incredibly inane. In fact, my grandfather's brother is a gay man. Marelene Dietrech was a lesbian, Rock Hudson was gay, Truman Copote, Joseph Foucault, Liberace, etc, etc, etc...these were all people our grandparents age that were homosexual. The society that was prevalent when our grandparents were growing up was a very different and much more repressed atmosphere. Our grandmothers weren't in college or given much in the way of career opportunities, either. If we happen to be of African descent, our grandparents weren't voting or drinking from the same water fountains. The people haven't changed one iota, it's the mentality of the culture that has evolved. Ok.Let's go a few more generations back. It DOES show that homosexuality can be repressed,I'm sure of it. 705399[/snapback] i did'nt say anything about grandparents!!! but i do however think its wrong, and having been in the forces alot of our history books are filled with "politically correct" lies.
