I have traveled this fair land for a number of years, and instead of relying on motels/hotels with their 4 walls, I opted for sharing a home(CL)with folks with kids, pets, etc. I usually spent several months in each place my company sent me, hence my desire for something more than those 4 walls at the end of the day.
I have shared homes with hetero couples, gay couples, lesbian couples and just about everything in between. The gay and lesbian folks were no different that the hetero couples, i.e. they were intelligent, committed to one another and their pets and kids, and worked hard at their chosen professions---nurses, business owners, army officers, doctors, hair stylist, political script writers, etc., etc. They always treated me with respect, as I did them.
Put me squarely in the 39% who oppose this slap in the face of some good Americans, who only want the right to have the right to be treated fairly. My 2cents, and opinion based on years of observing(living with) just plain folks in both hetero and same sex relationships.
