What is your definition of minority? I am a white male of Cajun decent.I married to a woman. I have 3 children, one is biological and the other two are are not biological they are adopted interacial children. I am an war veteran. I am a government employee with a part time job. I am not considered by the "legal terms" a minority, but how many people out there are just like me? Isn't everybody a minority?

Does gay count as a minority group?

You tell me - what do you think?

There are so many ways in which I would be considered outside of societys' norms, I don't even think about it. Don't get me wrong, I'm no rebellious/anti-establishment rebel - I just finally reached a point in my life where I decided to live for myself rather than trying to live up to what others expected of me. I'm a much happier person since.

As a gay man, I think I am. But if society would allow homosexuals to feel safe, accepted, and comfortable in being “out”, I think the gay minority would be a lot larger than it seems at the present
