I work very hard and am attending college to obtain my degree in the Human Service field. Writing makes me feel alive and gives me the opportunity to touch those whom I would not be able to otherwise. Last but not least, I have been blessed with two amazing daughters who love me completely and support my dreams. Feel free to contact me with questions, concerns or feedback.
Yes, I am one happy girl! In years past, the term gay meant happy or joyous. Today the word itself represents something quite negative.
My friends and family know me as a heterosexual female. It usually does not come up in conversation, as we have more important things to discuss. Sure, some of us single folks talk about our dating lives, but in general, it’s mostly casual.
The moment a man or woman “comes out of the closet” and changes the term of their sexuality from “straight” to “gay”, all hell breaks loose. A family divides and a one loving Grandparent now considers the outsider unwelcome.
I can understand old school. Way back when man and wife joined together to begin their journey. No birth control rules lead to one, two or eight children and they lived happily ever after. Today we have two dads, two moms, two dads/one mom living in the same household with one, possibly two children. The courts have opened their doors (for a time being) to allow homosexual couples to embrace the art of marriage.
We’ve come a long way baby, yet, we have so far to go.
When I am “straight” my sexual preference is never an issue. I could be an alcoholic or drug addict, as long as I am not a lesbian. It changes the way friends and families behave. Believe me, if I was a lesbian, I wouldn’t date half of my girlfriends. Wait, maybe I would, but that is beside the point. As a lesbian, I would hear jokes, such as, “Can we join you,” etc, from men who deem it necessary to make that type of comment.
If I were a lesbian, first of all, it would be none of your business. I wonder who gave you the right to state that I can only have a man in my bedroom. It’s not as if I question your bedroom activities. Whether you choose to sleep with a man, woman, two men or women, it’s your decision. If you are a swinger, attend parties while leaving your 3 young children with a babysitter to do your “thang”, it is still not my business.
They have two lovely children and an . Your thoughts?are married.
If homosexuality is an issue, let’s discuss two single people living together. The bible clearly states that sex outside of marriage is wrong. Well, I am a lesbian, but my single neighbors just purchased a home together. They are “living in sin” yet I am still looked down upon. Sex outside of marriage, regardless of one’s choice of partner, should be looked upon as either right or wrong, yet it isn’t.
Regardless of my sexual preference, I am still your mom, granddaughter, daughter, sister, and friend. I am the girl you know and love. I am the one you have shared laughter and tears with. I am still me. I promise not to embarrass you or force you to accept my lifestyle. Continue to love and accept me the same way you did before you heard the “big news.” After all, can’t we just…. get along???
