I’m spending the weekend with my girlfriend and her parents who don’t know I’m gay or that she is. You don’t need to come out unless you want to, and no one can prevent you from being happy

Be strong and open up about your real self on your own time - this is your story to tell! Also happy the world is becoming a more accepting place and that you will find acceptance with each person with Whom you decide to share this information ❤️

As I’ve gotten older I’ve gotten a little gayer. I don’t know why. Maybe just accepting the 10% of myself that was always a little gay. Or maybe just hyper-sexual in general and less picky/homophobic/self-loathing than I used to be. This is irrelevant to your post, what I really meant to say was, be you! You are awesome no matter what kind of parts you like.

Congrats on the big step! Coming out at work was one of the hardest things I ever did. It went so well, but it was the right time and place for me. I don’t regret waiting because I literally would have been fired if I’d come out where I was before. Look it up everyone, it’s still completely legal in most states to fire someone for coming out and it happens all the time!

I came out in front of a group of high powered, hard to pleased executives sheerly bc I was working on a pride project and the CD asked, “is there any queer representation on the team that is comfortable identifying as such?” My breath caught in my chest and then my hand shot up. There were 2 other queer creatives behind me whom I couldn’t see, as well as one very senior account person who scares the shit out of me. I didn’t get to see any of their hands or faces, because I was turned forward but I felt them all behind me. After I did it, I felt really good. It’s the little things sometimes. Thank you for sharing, OP. Stay brave.

Anyone have a trick for being really regular? I struggle because I’m normally okay (not great) but if I have an off few days (I.e., eating too much crap / too few vegetables) I feel terrible and have trouble pooping / cramping until I can actually do it.

Overall I’m pretty healthy. Could move more but drink lots of water and eat lots of vegetables/foods with fiber. I even drink prune juice daily.

Christian men, why are there so few of you in churches? One seasoned deaconess at my church theorizes it’s because 1) Men who go astray tend not to come back for reasons of guilt, whereas women who do tend to rely on their faith/church families even more for support 2) Many churches are no longer missional. So the sense of purpose, of building something etc. is lost for men. Curious to know what you think, and if you can invite your male friends. We need husbands over here. 😅

Can someone explain to me why biglaw firms don’t “review up” and have junior/mid level associates evaluate senior associates? I understand partners have no interest in hearing the minions gripe, but wouldn’t it be valuable to know if your senior associates—seeking to enter your partnership are good managers and not complete a**holes? I’ve had so many projects mismanaged by clueless senior associates lately and it seems like juniors/mid levels bear the brunt of it, but there’s no recourse.
