A friend of mine passed this video along to me. It is, without a shadow of a doubt, the best visualization experiment I have ever seen for straight people trying to understand what it's like to be gay. I'm keeping it in my back pocket for when people ask that question.

We want to know your opinion on this issue! While arguing about an opinion or idea is encouraged, personal attacks will not be tolerated. Please be respectful of others.

The editorial team will delete a comment that is off-topic, abusive, exceptionally incoherent, includes a slur or is soliciting and/or advertising.

This is a powerful example of "walk in my shoes." This man (who is he?) knows the key to change is in changing the heart; and you do that with feelings. If we can get straight people to feel what the L, G, B and T communities feel, they will answer the tough questions themselves. I've seen it happen again and again.
