Surprising information

I went to a meeting tonight and found out some information that is very surprising…

I recently have become friends with this couple and we try to hang around people who are accepting of everyone as we want to be accepted being gay women with a child.  T of this couple is very accepting and an advocate for equality of all types and even joined a PFLAG meeting because he wanted to know more about people who are GLBT.  I asked him at one time who he knew so that he felt he wanted to go to this meeting and joined the group and I was so impressed with his answer “I go because I know the two of you”.  I certainly was not expecting to hear the surprising information I heard tonight…

Apparently, he was not always like that.  He would tell jokes about every color and orientation you could imagine and his wife told him she was quite embarrassed of him to hear him talk like he did.  He then heard about the group that J was a part of, the Open and Affirming committee, and when T met some of the people, things changed for him.

He realized that all people deserve to be respected no matter their race, ethnicity, hair color or sexual orientation.  Who says people can’t change??

What is the LARGEST thing?

I am changing this topic up a bit… It was “What is the smallest thing”?  Well, I immediately thought about the largest thing in my life rather than the smallest.  Well, I did think about what the question actually meant… did they mean smallest thing like small item or small event, or small idea or small issue?  I’m sure it could have been any of them but the biggest thing that I am passionate about right now is EQUALITY.

It really is the same as LOVE .  There is not a lot of LOVE in the world and when people want to love, people are against it.  They don’t like how people love or who they want to love.  Some even want to have the right to vote on some people’s rights to pursue that happiness of love.  What if you needed to ask the world, not just the family of that one person, but the world for their approval?  Sounds kind of silly doesn’t it?

It IS a civil right to be able to love and marry the person you want. What if YOU had to fight for that?
