Passing by the way if you're by no good time yeah. That's kind of like like this past. Still you know we're just checking in on you know I know yeah. You had the whole. And we talked yes. And I sat down into the weird thing for me is an I don't know how it is for everybody in I don't wanna sound. Any time we talked about a subject like this I know that there's a political correctness that we got to try to adhered to but. Recycle and Stephen you don't always do that the week we admit. Upfront we're kind of idiots in their debts and insensitivity is not intentional no act. Astle right now because we're learning with every ya but I just what I wanted to say about it is. I wonder how Austin somebody coming out is actually a surprise. Because. They young nanny came out to me. Like we were working together and he just felt like it was tie game. To. Ask you like to detain and to the office and said you know can sit down I wanna talk to you wounds like. And I want you to know that I'm gay I was you know my first reaction is. Good duck the night you know he's an incredibly personal for them. Yes. It's a very trusting of him yes economy but its sights the school you realize that but also. Jackson dome light. Are you kidding me I only hope we didn't know. That's right I appreciate you tell me but I kind of just go back to work out your that I just wonder ES Eric's friend when he tells the Stanley if they're gonna be the H. Do you think your Stanley if one of my children was daddy. I'm sorry. I would know it or else I'm a completely disconnected Barack there's there's a member of all the mighty. In laws and I told you this from the first time I ever met him she was you know he's like 45 years old walk around my age. Does kids' day. In not in a battle and decides that kid. And now she's all grown up and guess what it. I don't know if he's come out everybody's not to mean we've talked about it he's like only boyfriend does love you guys have a lot. They pulled. I don't thinks he asked an onion I could be wrong I don't nobody ever had to say it is an armed don't know. Moms get ready for a huge shocker. I've just wouldn't she she should know. But the parents and I know were never blind side never brightly they day they know their children. Blige it's a big deal for their children offered to do that but this RO PP writer's friends so. So this kid he he he's confided in his training he says he wants to come out. So I asked them we don't have to but out because he. The desires aren't still OK it's not. Like Eric steel PP Ryder today is like do you hear just a much better you got to come out to anybody who forces somebody out to them. I think that's really. Or or steals or opportunity and a that's no reason they just eats the most. Not everybody and it kind. Of wonder what's weird am. See how did you get into trouble with every sends its poverty in my head right now but it's like why you have to say that. I and one day cemetery is only a mom dad. I like girls. I it was. Number or I'm left handed or. I did tonight it's not minimize it it's it's huge deal it is. But what we've why don't we made this still one announcement that I. IE eight is where it was truly trying to move past yes you know these guys are we are normal for being heterosexual and their abnormal if we're trying to move past sent him why does anybody have to come out I shoot a right to know like. You know. Serum that would I don't have to sit down would you wouldn't tick off the few things that I find exciting about relate it's just. I do mean in the privacy of my time you do you think we we I don't you write what wiser so pomp and circumstance why I don't know what. As there are more of the senate but again I guess with your family. But you're right you think your family would probably an anyway anyway I cancer I'd I'd I don't know what I'm talking about their life and you'll Pete Peters a brother the raw freedom apparently was the brother won't be accepting saw my question is. When you come out. Coming out to be accepted. And if you know that someone's not gonna you stay in or your coming up because I gotta get those are just this is me so I wanna why are you coming out.

What's what trumps what this is the time you desire to be except or the desire to be free of the secret you. I don't know you know this is this is tough and it and like we said it's incredibly personal but it if you have come out. If you had somebody come out to you he wants tips on how to come out it's like a playbook that that's been run that's kind of just like you know.

When you get to go out in space flights as who you are not how everybody wants this year.

Our first thing we don't worry is the Egypt individual thinking about coming our are and whether or not it actually treat for the person to come out. That the person that my anger and living in households that does not accept the if there is potential that the chick can actually kick out of this house. Luckily I exercise stress Pamela you know.
