I hear a lot of comments about same sex unions and marriages. I have to wonder why are we so focused on the emotional affairs of two loving individuals? Why are people fixated on keeping folks separate and in neat little compartments?
I recall as a child how uncomfortable folks were when two individuals of different races fell in love. The question was always raised in relation to "kids". People always seem concerned that other kids would make fun against kids of mix races....that fact is kids make fun of everything thing. Whether you wear glasses, are short, fat, tall, old sneakers, etc..the point is kids pick on each other.
Today.. race seems to have faded into the abyss of insignificance and replaced by gender related questions. Again I ask why?
Why are we so obsessed with the type of love two consenting individuals choose to express? Can we give it a rest and allow people to be people and share their lives with their ideal mate!
I say let go and let God/Goddess bless their union.
Marriage should be for those in love and not only for those who wish to upgrade their social status, get green cards or move from home.
