Maybe I'm just old fashioned, but I still cant get used to this whole anything-is-acceptable view of sexuality nowadays. So here I am looking up some stuff on Google, and I run across someone's obituary, a 25 year old man; and among the loved ones he leaves behind is his husband (??!!) Maybe I'm a little slow here, but...since when do men have husbands? I had to keep reading it over and over just to make sure I was understanding it right. Couldnt help but shake my head and say "Wow"! Just another sign of our changing times.
