My real life friend and compatriot in dadblogging, known as The Didactic Pirate, has written a post that he has been thinking about for a year. Okay, I'm gonna go ahead and spoil it. He's coming out of the closet officially to the internet.
When he first told me he was gay, I thought it was a ruse. After all, he had never hit on me after all the times we had hung out. Never so much as a sidelong glance, even when I was sporting my suave 'stache during Movember.
But now he has finally convinced me that he is legitimately gay. He just has terrible taste in men. Apparently he thinks Ryan Reynolds is cute. Whatever.
The important part is that you guys all sprint over to his site, read his post, give him some internet hugs and support (he's freaking out a bit, as he does), and share his story. The more coming out stories that are celebrated, the fewer people will languish in the closet. That's my theory anyway.
Here's the link again.
I'm super proud of my friend and I hope you'll give him your support.
On DadCentric, I wrote about how I prefer comparing myself to Stalin rather than to my dad, because it makes me feel better about myself.
And on Aiming Low, I wrote about how you can furnish a child's bedroom for under $20,000! (Seriously--did you know there are twin beds that cost 5k?)
