amerinz_podcast_150x150Today’s show starts about 20 minutes into the discussion (I explain that first). Joining me for today’s Live Chat on were Steven in Wisconsin, LurryDean and Lord Byron of Illinois (who suggested today’s topic). We talked first about men and intimacy: Can gay men teach heterosexual men about non-sexual emotional intimacy with other men? Or, is it just a myth that gay men are better able to achieve it? Is the lack of emotional intimacy among men just a part of being male?

It was a wide-ranging discussion on a whole host of related issues. Toward the end, I ask about the Senate having approved the Hate Crimes Act.

These are turning into wide-ranging, round-table discussions—join us on for the next live podcast on The next live chat starts at 8pm Eastern North American time on Thursday, October 29 (1pm Friday, October 30 New Zealand time). You can also join other listeners in the chatroom, where you can ask questions or make comments as the show is streamed.
