I cannot imagine what you mean by "better late than never".
Sorry. I was just referring to your disappointment that no one had replied to this post. Nothing deeper nor more substantial than that.

As for reading your fics, the first story of yours that I had ever heard of was "Gay Bar", and from it I got the feeling that you don't exactly write the sorts of things I normally read. It isn't exactly the best first impression. I'll just leave at that.

I was particularly incensed by your reference to your gay friends.

and

incidentally, demeans the persons by making them identify themselves with the lifestyle, by making them think of themselves,` not as people, but only as gays.

I've met a lot of my friends through activism, so I tend to identify them with the cause. In general, a person's identity is made up of the roles they occupy in society. For instance, a person may think of his/herself in terms of their occupation, their place in their family (mother, sister, daughter), their race, gender, sexual orientation, and many other things besides. In different contexts, different components may be more salient for both the person and those around them.

I don't think that being GLBT would cause a person so much unhappiness, not that it always does, if society were more accepting.
