Rosie O'Donnell's cruise company caves in

Rosie O'Donnell's cruise company for families with gay members, R Family Vacations, has decided that its ship won't stop at Bermuda after all--because it didn't want passengers to have to deal with protests by church groups. What a shame. The best way for people to get comfortable with us--and by "us" I mean both gay people (which includes me) and also anyone who feels different from society at large--is to actually interact with them. It's a missed opportunity, and a surprising one from someone who makes a living being upfront and outspoken.
