I know that people operate under all sorts of ignorance. I do. We all do. I'm just baffled about it all. And I want to stress that I'm mostly simply disappointed that I read what I read. I also want to repeat that at the same time we are all entitled to our opinions. I know...waffle waffle. I believe this person is wrong just as I am certain they believe I am wrong. So what do we do? Do I drop this person simply because I find this bit of ignorance intolerable or does that make me intolerable as well? Do I invade this person's space to tell them I disagree? If I do not does that make me a supporter of such ignorance? I know I am writing in code here, I just need to process these ideas and feelings.
What made me want to respond so much was/is that I think this person and a few other commentors believe there is nothing wrong in what they wrote or believe and yet to me, it was rife with hatred. The words themselves weren't violent but the context was. I'm still uncertain as to what to do. Like I said, I hate confrontation. I also have a difficult time with ignorance relating to people's choice of partners. Love is love. Loving who you love and being kind is a good thing when it comes from the heart. I feel sad that people still feel a need to make it something other than what it is.
Sigh. Why can't we really just all get along?
