Celebrating Legal Gay Marriage in Iowa
Celebrating Legal Gay Marriage in Iowa
Robert Winn met his wife, Christine, in college. He was a fraternity boy. She was a sorority girl. Early in their relationship, he made a confession, a thorny secret he camouflaged from his closest family and friends.
The truth sputtered out awkwardly.
Sensing his nervousness, she speculated he would announce he was sick — or perhaps dying?
He told her he was bisexual.
On the surface, Robert Winn, now 40, and Christine Winn, 41, appear to be like any other blissfully married heterosexual couple. They boast nearly 18 years of monogamous marriage. He’s a well-respected physician, who works with the LGBT community in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She’s a successful hospital administrator.
The couple says they’ve grown closer over time, but like any marriage, two people can have differences — including sexual orientation. Christine Winn is straight, and she has been supportive of her husband, who is openly bisexual.

My name is Rory. I am a lesbian and at my prom in May, I won Junior Class Prom King. It was one of the proudest moments so far. It went really well. No one cared that I wore a tux, brought a female date, or beat a guy in the prom king race.
That’s so awesome!!! :D I’m so happy for you! ^^ <3 Thank you for sharing that with us :] GMH!
don’t they make a handsome couple?

Contact the ACLU and report the incident! Don’t let these things go by unnoticed.
I have just over 2 weeks before my top surgery (I can’t believe it’s so close).
To prepare for surgery, I’m going to start working on my body and mind. I’ve done a lot of research on this and here is my plan.
I’m going to try to eat a high-protein diet with high fiber and as little junk food as possible. This means absolutely no more coffee rolls from Dunkin Donuts. I’m going to drink more than 2 liters of water every day, and I’m cutting back on caffeine and sugary drinks like soda. I’m not drinking any alcohol. I’m going to avoid things with extra ginseng, garlic, gingko, kava, and valerian root. And I’m not going to take aspirin or ibuprofen, and am going to only take acetaminophen when I absolutely need to.
I’m going to take supplements with lots of Vitamin A, C, and E. It has been recommended that before surgery you also take Bromelain and Shark cartilage, but I don’t have that and am not spending the money on it.
I’m going to do 30 minutes of aerobic exercise every day, with weight-lifting when I can. I’m going to focus on my core, so my abs are strong to help compensate for the lack of use of my chest and arm muscles. I’m going to make sure I’m getting good and regular sleep, and staying as unstressed as possible.
I’m going to do relaxation and/or meditation exercises for 30 minutes daily, and afterwards envision myself after surgery, with a flat chest, recovering well and feeling good, comfortable, and happy.
I’m also going to remind myself of my intentions in surgery whenever I start to get worried about it. IE “This is going to change my life for the better - I’m going to look in the mirror and love my new chest,” etc.
PS - I don’t smoke, but if I did, I would obviously stop that immediately.
I made this question as a means for you to interpret it as you please. Are you one or the other or both? Are you attracted to one or the other or both? Which would you rather be? Your favorite femme/butches?
If I had to pick which I liked better, I’d say butch lesbians probably. Sort of androgynous ones, but in ‘boys’ clothing.
I hope this question or my answer didn’t trigger any negative responses. It was a means of expressing different types of beauty, not of trying to fit people into boxes. I just simply stated what I find attractive. Sorry if I’ve offended you! <3
The other days
EDIT: I was just informed that Andrea is genderqueer. Huh. I never knew that. I’m gonna have to find another butch lesbian to love… :] <3
For starters, my ‘favorite posts’ are still being updated while I’m looking through old posts. Also, a trans person can be in an LGBT relationship if they’re gay as well (like some people I know) :]
Unfortunately, transender folk are a minority within a minority. I cannot get nearly as much information about them as I can about just ‘homosexual’. I try though!! I have 159 posts tagged /transgender and I’ll make sure to look through some of those to add to my ‘Favorite Posts’.
Thank you for your concern and for some constructive criticism in a polite way! :D
