As I sat near the finish line with no medal around my neck, I still loved watching people complete it... and it made me want to do try it again. So don't be scared to attempt that marathon or half marathon on your bucket list because failure is only failure if you don't get out there and attempt it.
My encounter with the virulently anti-gay Benham brothers at the Values Voter Summit had me asking myself: What makes men "gay"? Of course, I don't mean what makes people actually homosexual, biologically, or what inspires them to desire gay sex. Rather, what makes men appear "gay" within popular culture and thought to be gay even by gay men themselves?
