Love is Never Wrong, Hate is Wrong

So I promised you all a bitchy post this week, I guess I better get busy and deliver one!  If you have been following along at all around here you probably know by now that I am a rabid supporter of Gay Rights, well actually I am a rabid supporter of ALL Rights and personal Freedoms, but that isn't what I am bitching about today, so we will stick with the first part for now. (Don't you just Love the monster run-on sentences that I write? I do - in case you hadn't noticed)

Anyway, I was watching a few minutes of one of this seasons new sitcoms last night (I am trying to wean myself away from the damn tv, but that is also another story), and there was a scene that really got me going so I am here to rant at all of you about it.  The show is called "The New Normal" and the main characters are a gay couple and the surrogate mother who is carrying their child.  I kinda like the show, its a little over the top, but in the bits and pieces that I have seen of the two whole episodes they have shown so far, the charachters have really grown on me.  But that is neither here nor there and has absolutely nothing to do with the point I was going to make, so lets get on with it already shall we.

So, in the show, the gay couple are out shopping at the mall and some random bigot makes a scene over the fact that one guy kissed another guy in public, in front of his kid!  This just pissed me off to no end.  I know this kind of shit happens in the real world all too often and it is damn time we put a stop to it!  So I am going to say this very loudly and very clearly: LOVE IS NEVER WRONG, HATE IS WRONG.

If you don't want to see two guys kissing in public, don't fucking look at them you pervert.  I am sorry that you might have to talk to your child, heaven forbid you should like, be a fucking parent!  Seriously, this guy said he felt sorry for any child the gay couple would have, being raised by people like "them", but the only one who deserved the sympathy was his child, to be raised in a home filled with hate will always be worse for any child than to be raised in a home filled with Love.

I would really like to think that if I was present at such an exchange that I would speak up for Love in the real world the same way I do here on the internet.  And I do try.  But, the truth be told, in that situation I probably wouldn't have spoken up to the bigot.  I am a little bitty woman, and I don't do conflict, as I have mentioned before.  I do know what I would have done though.  I would have walked right up to that couple and told them exactly what I just told you, probably loud enough for the other guy to hear it.  I can't fight against hate, I just don't have the strength for it, but I will fight for Love every chance I get.

And that is what it all boils down to for me.  I don't have any gay or lesbian friends or family members, I am not fighting for anyone I know really.  I see it more as I am fighting for EVERYONE, whether I know them or not.  In a world consumed by greed and selfishness, the one thing we all need more than anything else is more Love!  I do not understand these people who want to fill their world with hate, I refuse to even try.  If that is how you choose to live your life, fine, just stay the fuck away from me and all the rest of the decent people of the world.  Go live your miserable little life however the hell you want, but quit trying to force your misery down everyone else's throats!  I do not want it.  I do not need it.  I will not take it any more.

Namaste

  1. The group (using the term lightly)' One Million Moms' is appalled that 'The New Normal' is shown during prime time where seeing it would ruin childrens' idea of what is normal & proper. As for me, that's just one more reason to watch it (or record, as the case may be).

    1. I am Appalled that that group exists. I think they are as far from "normal & proper" as any group can get. Any "Mom" that promotes hate over Love, doesn't deserve to use the name! A Mother's job is Love.
