when did you both know you were in love with one another and it wasn’t just physical? wishing you guys all the best 🙂
,We were always jealous of the other dating growing up, but it wasn’t until our time apart in our bad marriages that I think it really sunk in. During that time we both grew up and grew wiser and we talked all the time, so when the divorces cane we knew what the best thing for us would be. 7 years has past, not one day of regret!!! And thank for support it is very very nice that in a world full of reasonless opinions that we can find such support!!!!
This is so fucked up. What’s even more disgusting is how, when they said they wanted to continue to be together, everyone in the court just laughed at them.
THIS IS REALLY REALLY TRUE.
LIKE NOT EVEN IN ROMANTIC LOVE. JUST IF I LOVE YOU AS A FRIEND OR ANYTHING THEN … Yah.
One aspect I dislike about lyrics such as ‘born this way’ and ‘I can’t change, even if I tried’ is the implication that judging gay people is in part only bad because people don’t choose their sexuality. Really though, there is clearly nothing wrong with expressing your sexuality towards the opposite or same sex regardless of any other factors such as attraction etc. You shouldn’t require justification for something that isn’t in any way negative to begin with.
Tbh I find that rediculously pedantic and ungrateful of you. It’s like you’ll never be happy and negatively pick apart even the positive things said by people who understand. There’s no need. You know what they mean and it is true. You don’t choose to be gay. By saying that you are born this way etc, does not imply that if you did choose there would be something wrong. That is another issue to a person’s true sexuality which is most personal and the bigger issue which they are focusing on. Some people probably do choose to have gay sex just for fun, but that would probably be a kind of bisexuality because it would be sex without romance or love. I don’t see how making this statement has anything to do with people like that who may exist. I mean what CAN they say which you don’t find offensive? A great big long sentence including every single individual kind of person which may or may not exist? That would be a good catchy song.
Saying I can’t change even if I tried, even if WANTED to is expressive of the insecurity people have about being gay. That is a perfectly fine thing to say.
It’s also saying ‘but I don’t want to,’ because of the ‘even if.’
I think you’re making a lot of a thought I had based on a GIF that appeared on my dashboard. I would not claim for instance that these songs are not very helpful and don’t further understanding in the present. I think is clear that they do. I am simply saying that they are a step on the path, not the destination. In ten or twenty years people will clearly be asking these questions and wondering why people had to justify being ‘born’ gay. There is an apologetic aspect to the current narrative. Who people are attracted to or have sex with should not require any explanation at any point.
I see where the gay by choice kid is going.
Sexuality is fluid and changing over ones life, i believe that a huge part of the world suppresses some of their sexuality b.c of a strong homophobic stigma. That said, I love Mary lambert and I didn’t choose my sexuality- I just choose my label. We all do.
I have to agree with you. Not everyone chooses their sexuality, but that shouldn’t be the basis on which we make law. We don’t oppress political minorities, yet they chose their views. Policing the sex lives of consenting, loving adults is wrong, and there was never a good reason for it aside from bigotry. Even for those who are bisexual, it still doesn’t mean they choose who they fall in love with.
Spike Jonze interviewing his friends on “What does love look like in the modern world?” He then relates their answers back to his movie “Her”. I can’t wait to see this movie.
This video is from ABCNews telling the story of Jaia, Jon, Ian and their little boy. Check it out.
A real polyamorous couple on national TV. There needs to be more of this. I’d like to see them interviewed again in a couple of years, it sounds like two of them are growing apart – I’d like to see how they handle it. People will, of course blame all that on their non-monogamy, but there are millions of monogamous relationships in which the partners have grown apart and broken up, so I think it’s an unfair attribution. It’s true, it’s definitely complicated, but that doesn’t mean it’s not worthwhile.
In the bigger scheme the planet will burn when the sun explodes, and the universe will continue to expand infinitely indefinately, and what was will be what isn’t, and who knows what will become?
“Star dust to star dust.”
There’s also a theory that the universe will change properties again, like is has before, and expansion will slow down, allowing the universe to contract, called “The Big Crunch”. There’s another theory that the universe’s timeline is an infinite cycle, and that after an infinite amount of time expanding, causality will reverse and it will go back to being a singularity after another infinite amount of time, and then forward again, called “The Big Bounce”. The theoretical physics of cosmology is weird…
What if the origin of religion was just a couple of slightly mysoginistic stoners joking around the campfire, and some one like over heard them, and then took it all seriously.
And they were just like “nah, nah, mannnnn… No-ooo you feel me? Fuck, where’s the blunt?” But they were so fucking buzzed they just forgot to remind the souls who bought their shit that it was a joke.
If you really want a thorough, thorough understanding of the origins of religion, from a perspective that’s not biased one way or another (the guy who wrote it is a secular Buddhist), read this.
