Note to liberals...

A 60-year-old woman who is not married is not necessarily a lesbian. Maybe she is, maybe she isn't, but please remember that many women have been known to live happy lives without benefit of marriage, just as many men have. And as of this writing, there are no rainbow trout signed up for the Tour de France.

Well said.

I'm 42 and never been married, am not a lesbian, and though no one has assumed I am (to my face), which I would care less about anyway, I am sick to death of getting idiotic responses to saying I'm single!

Me: "I'm happily single."

Any women: "Oh, that's too bad, someone will come along! Just wait & see!"

Me: BLARRRRFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF.

If I wanted to be married, I would be. I know how to attract a mate & keep one. I haven't, however, found one I'd like to keep, and I honestly don't spend much time trying. I like my life just fine!

See the tangent you got me on? I'm glad you addressed it. Oh, and for the record, the women that say the above phrase or something close to it run the gamut of liberal, conservative, etc. They all seem to react the same (hetero women, anyway) to the information that I'm single. It's really pretty amazing; most act as if I've just confessed to having leprosy.

I've pretty much figured that much of it is projection, most folks hate the idea of being alone, but I don't and I'm sick of others assuming I am waiting for some man to appear to make my life complete!

Chances are fairly high that a woman of her generation, never married, not yet publicly known to have a long-term relationship with a man, with a history of running for public office, is either asexual (1% or so of population can't be bothered with the sex idea) or lesbian (whether out to herself or not) or heterosexual but has strong religious objection to extramarital sex and to "submission" as an evangelical Christian/orthodox Jewish/Muslim proper stay-at-home wife. I am betting #3, heterosexual who values power more than sex, and in a strict denomination where married women simply do not aspire to power.

I posted this because, as usual, "liberal" message board posters are rushing to say Harriet Miers must be a lesbian. The idea of a heterosexual woman not marrying is as shocking today as it was in the 50's, I guess.

Miers could be a lesbian. She could be an emotional free spirit. She could have no interest whatsoever in having a partner. She could still feel she hasn't found the right man. The possibilities are many, but people still focus on "she must be a lesbian."

Thanks, Diane, for your quip "no rainbow trout in the Tour de France"! Amen, Sista. Once upon a time, Harriet Miers was on the Dallas City Council and represented the voice of big business. As such, she couldn't possibly be cool enough to be a lesbian! I rest my case.

I'm probably in the minority (which is difficult considering that I'm a white male), but I couldn't care less about Ms. Miers sex life (or lack thereof). The mere fact that BushCo endorses her is enough for me to distrust her. I realize that she's not unique in her lack of judicial experience, but shouldn't the Supreme Court be reserved for citizens who've actually demonstrated more than the ability to sign a check endorsed to the Committee to Re-Elect the President?

Nancy:

If she didn't have a high powered career, I might agree that based on her generation's views of marriage and spinsterhood. This being said, even in this day and age, women who are educated and career driven have difficulty getting dates - I'd guess it would have been even harder for her bucking the trend of women only going to college to get their Mrs & snag a better husband.
