My career in journalism with a major newspaper chain ended one day when I was threatened to be exposed as a (homosexual) "pornographer" for writing humorous stuff in private, and fired. That was over 20 years ago. I don't think that would have happened to me today. Miami used to be a hell-hole for homos. (Think Anita Bryant.)
How times have changed. The Republican Vice President's wife has written fiction about a steamy Lesbian relationship, and his daughter is an uncloseted Lesbian with an illegitimate baby (no less). (What's with that family?)
And so on, and so forth.
