Sometime I am little late to the plate, so to speak.
For the whole of pretty much the whole of Pride month. I had to keep telling people that there is actual Science that says certain people are born with more gay genetics/DNA. It’s just fact…And we all know how much Conservatives love to say “Facts don’t care about your feelings”.
It’s only just occurred to me though. They are just so gosh darn insistent that it’s not something you are born with. Why is that? Why are they not happy, that if it’s something you are born with, you’d think by the time they reached adulthood, they’d know? Then I had just this most random thought. Do you think, they actually believe you can “catch gay”? Which is why they are so insistent you can’t be born gay? If they tell themselves it’s “lifestyle” and not something your born with…They’re safe?
They can’t “catch it”.
Is that why they are so worried, because they clearly have hidden feelings?
I have always called myself a mutt. I was born in Australia, both my parents are English, great grandparents, and we suspect that there is either Spanish or Indian. When I saw this video a light-bulb went off in my head. Everything that’s been going on lately, has really disturbed me.
I feel like we are trying to put ourselves and others into boxes than other before, while yet, telling others to keep an open mind? It is very much a us against them mentality. I don’t believe us vs them is helpful and it all feels very toxic. Like we are trying to segregate each other again. and Too me it’s a lot about our backgrounds and where we all come from. Except I strongly believe none of us know our TRUE backgrounds, what our cultures are. Which is why I believe each culture needs to be respected, but that it’s okay to share it with others. You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m sure that I’m not the only one ~.^
I read recently that 1 in 4 kids are not even their “fathers” child…One in 4! God knows how often that sort of thing was going on years ago as well, and we all know about the English Kings and Queens, and their affairs. Who knows where we truly come from?
My personal favourite was the English guy who said that he was 100% English and he hates Germans.
