Friday Confession: I Lied And I’d Do It Again

I lied to a group of people for a prolonged period of time. I knew I was lying, many of them knew I was lying, and I would do it again.

It was the right thing to do. I am a liar.

In December of 2006 my friends and I told the hospital staff that I was the AIDS patient’s sister. We did so because his partner of 14 years had no legal rights without waving a sheet of paper in front of their faces every time he opened his mouth.

I am a liar. My Steven has been dead for two and a half years. For some reason I miss him terribly today.

I’d lie for him any day, but if California repeals Prop 8 you might make it easier on someone else.

  1. You’re right, it was the right thing to do. I can’t believe that we still have this discussion. As far as I’m concerned, it should no longer be an issue. We must repeal Prop 8 and anything resembling prop 8.

  2. i so wish i lived in california – i do everything i know how to support gay rights, repeal of prop 8 & DADT, etc… – but i wasn’t able to vote here in CT. i’d definitely lie, too, and be proud of it.

  4. My sister and I were just talking about how sometimes the ends justify the means. (Already signed, btw.) Sounds like you did exactly what I would do, if given the same circumstances.
