Truman Show Dropout
Just to throw in my personal 2 cents worth;
i once thought I may be gay
I hung around gays, got to know some quite well, spent time living in a gay house but never found myself really comfortable with the whole scene.
decided I was undoubtedly straight and left it at that.
joined the hubbardites a few years later.
Several years after that, found myself getting contemptuous about gays but let it ride, as it was "in the Tech."
Still happily talked to gays on an individual basis and never held it against anyone who was gay (and there were several on staff and in the SO all the time I was on staff.)
left staff and then joined Narconon, where there were plenty people who'd turned to drugs to handle the problem of being gay.
ran into the institutionalized discrimination that existed in narconon about gays, again based on Hubbard
Tried to handle a few, but only if they wanted to handle - never pushed it.
Left the Co$, left the prejudice that I'd taken on.
Can't understand why I let myself become intolerant in the first place :confused2:
Being in the cult it's easy and often necessary to adopt the group think. Many of us bought into all these aberrant points of view. After all, hu666ard knew best! I'm glad you let go of the prejudice!
