And I guess I'm really ashamed to admit it, considering what a raging homophobe he is today.
There were probably earlier crushes I ignored, but my first serious crush around age 15 was Kirk Cameron.
Yep... My crush was the Bible-carrying, gay-hating, 'Stephen Hawking is an idiot and evolution is a LIE!'-spewing Mike Seaver.
But back then? I would have rather severed a limb than miss an episode of "Growing Pains!" Just the title of the show is quite suitable for the way that I was feeling at the time.
Too bad I never had the courage to admit it...
Not then, and not today 25 years later. I may be alone, but at least I'm not married & living a lie.
