Hello my friends,
Weekends always seem to go way too fast. Isn't it strange when we are doing something fun, time seems to rush by, but when we are working or doing something not very pleasant, it drags. Here's hoping that every one's day today flew quickly by.
I've decided in honor of Gay Pride month, every time I post here, I will also post a picture of some very nice eye candy for all of us to enjoy.
I am not one to push my viewpoints down other's throats. It's just not my way. I live a (relatively) quiet life with my partner Jack. We have good friends. We love, we fight, we laugh, and we have cried. Both of us have fought hard to make this relationship work. There are times I know he wants to strangle me in my sleep when I get overly stubborn (imagine that). Just like the times I want to scream my head off when he gets the pushy Alpha thing going, but through love and YEARS of committing to one another, we have found our way through the tough times, and learned to communicate with each other. The determination we have to stay together has outlasted any petty arguments we might have.
We are lucky.
The other day we were out with Brent and Josh at the local bar. We were minding our own business, just relaxing and listening to music. While we were leaving, we had several men say very hurtful and derogatory things to us. Although, I believe we all wanted to stay and be confrontational, we didn't. We left without giving the racist people a second glance.
This of course bothered me. Jack was able to let it slide off of his shoulders more quickly than I was. I know we have come a long way with LGBT acceptance, but I am also smart enough to know that we still have a long way to go.
So my question is, do you think we did the right thing by walking away, or should we have stood our ground? What would you do if you were faced in the same situation?
Thanks for listening. I'll get off of my soapbox now...lol.
