Whats it all about?

  • Losing our virginity…it happens to almost all of us, no matter who we are or where we come from. How did it happen for you? Ever wondered what other people think and feel about this never-to-be-repeated experience? I am on a mission to find out. Follow my journey as I collect stories from as wide a selection of people as possible. From men and women, old and young, gay, straight, Christian, Muslim and Catholic, from the funny and the sad, to the happy and occasionally, the unbelievable. I am in search of the one story that we rarely share. Come and join my adventure.

I think, rather than try to change the lingo of the times (which is rather communistic and controlling for so many reasons), the shorter path probably lies in people being aware of semantics and their potential fallacies. Homosexuality became negative before the name Gaylord was marred. Language is culture, and you cannot change language first. It ALWAYS follows culture.

I do really like the article though. And I was not aware of Guardian's Life & Style section! It has a lot of interesting pieces!
