Small Minds of the South

Well. I guess I shouldn't be surprised. I grew up in the South and I know a lot of people there are still very old fashioned about life and what equals proper behaviour. And what doesn't.

It's severely disappointing to acknowledge that even some of my close friends from back home, people that I would give my children to, if I died, believe that same-sex marriage is wrong.

Which, of course, changed my mind about who gets my kids if I die. I don't want them growing up with such a narrow view on what makes a family, or what kind of love is "right" and "wrong".

Unless it's pedophilia or incest, I don't think there is a wrong kind of love. And really, those aren't love, those are obsession. And that's all I want to say about that, because we'll get completely off-track if we go down that road.

Boo Oklahoma, Boo Alabama

Yay Idaho! (who knew? color me shocked, I wouldn't have guessed that!)
