To make it a little clearer who's saying what, indent your replies one more time than what you're responding to ("thread" your comments). To indent, add ~& to the beginning of each of your paragraphs, and to indent further, increase the number of ~s: It's also polite to sign your comments with your username (and the date, if you'd like).

High-profile political outing (KadyG)

Here's my idea(s). Feel free to run with it.

A high-profile political figure with a conservative public personae is "outed" as a Theri soon after the changes.

This was inspired by an article in Vanity Fair about Mark Foley - whose gayness was a pretty open secret in Washington, but because he stayed low-profile no one really cared about it. I'm trying to imagine what sort of reaction someone like Condaleeza Rice would get if she suddenly had to deal with the fact that her private beliefs and practices were suddenly made physical for literally the world to see. Since Condi was appointed - not elected - there would be no compelling reason for the media to dig deeply into her private life. Someone like that might feel very safe exploring their Theri leaning in private life.

I imagine the media would be speculating about whether or not someone like that could perform their job while also dealing with fur and a tail. Would it make life easier or more difficult for other Theris? Would they be open and honest about what was going on? Or would they suddenly find urgent business in North Dakota to attend to? Would someone who's conservative politically be willing to be exposed this way?

Anyway, if this grabs you have fun with it. - KadyG 12/20/06
