Welcome to the forum. And thank you for posting.
I am glad you say that you have many gay and lesbian friends. Now. I have a question: do your friends know that you tolerate
them? That's not how I think of my straight friends. The word draws to mind thoughts of 'in spite of'
I encourage you to think about the use of this word.
