Thanks for your comments. I don't disagree with you. One of the reasons that I use the "who shares my bed" language is because all of the primary texts that are used to support theologies that marginalize queer people have to do with physical acts of sex, not with intimate and deep love. Thus for me, using that language in intentional.
I think you might be right however that it is the encounter with queer people in loving relationships that often has the biggest impact on others. I know from first hand experience. It was my own committed relationship that helped some in my family come around to accepting me for who I am.
Thanks again for sharing,--Jared
