You know, that's an interesting observation. I didn't really notice, haven't been around so much, but...yeah, it seems true. I don't really know why either...(what Surayahamdan said sounds very plausible but I don't think we can know for sure).
OK, to get back on the topic...
This Mr. Ouyang (is he Chinese? It's pretty cool) has a nice story, and I'm glad that his life seems to have gone so well - his wife accepted it, now he's got everything on track, it makes a nice change from what you normally hear, especially in the media. I remember reading this article, I think it was on Time, about this guy from China who could only be himself when he moved away from his family...for business, I think. And when he told his wife and family things went really bad with them. So it's refreshing to hear that it can and is possible to have the whole thing go peacefully.
(Oh, and his whole point about homosexuals having to step up themselves to make the change they want - well I can understand people not wanting to come out, and for good reason, and I wouldn't blame them, but at the same time I guess there's just no denying that if everyone hid at home and waited for something to happen, nothing's going to happen)
As for that church of his...well I wouldn't put it past the government to have some people raid this one too. Just hope nothing more happens what with all the ridiculous religious conspiracy theories around.
