Dawn13 : (16 October 2014 - 08:17 PM) Again Thanks Monica - I have a new FB account and a new e-mail where I can be free.
Dawn13 : (16 October 2014 - 05:41 PM) Thanks - Monica
MonicaPz : (16 October 2014 - 04:03 PM) The safest way to set up two FB accounts is to have two e-mail addresses (one Dawn, the other your male name), two snail mail addresses (Dawn would have a P.O. Box, your male self, street address, etc.  Keep ALL information TOTALLY DIFFERENT between the two FB accounts.
Dawn13 : (16 October 2014 - 07:14 AM) Can anyone direct me to a good set of info on how to set up a second FB account using Dawn as my site name.  Regretfully, I still have to live two lives and do not wish to have FB join the two of them.  Maybe this is impossible.
Dawn13 : (16 October 2014 - 05:59 AM) Please send me mail - plenty of room in my mailbox now!

She is a Republican. I think we need to remember that many conservatives, republicans and religious people are also standing up for LGBT rights, and we need to be careful not to stereotype any group of people.

I agree...however, I would have liked her speech so much more had she been speaking purely out of the desire to do the right thing.  Makes me wonder if she would have made that speech if she did not have someone close at heart that happens to be gay, and also having lost her husband.  I have to admit I was a bit disappointed when she mentioned these things - especially the part about her daughter.   I'm sure it is these two events that have allowed her understand how it would feel to be denied some certain right, and she did indicated that even she herself might not be a representative were it not for people fighting for equality... but to me...just feels like her daughter being gay is the drive for the representative's passion.

Kudos to her, though, for speaking up.

I look at it this way. :P .Whatever her motivation is, it's one less homophobic person in the Congress. :D  ...
Another one bites the dust!!! ;)
