So having what I hope you all (when I say all, I mean the three of you that read this…one of you being my sister I presume?) consider to be a humorous blog about my “sad single life,” I do joke around a lot about being sad and lonely. One thing that I do oftentimes take for granted even though I AM sad and lonely, is that no one is prohibiting me by law from being with the person I want to be with or saying hurtful things to me, or in any way protesting my ability to be with someone. (N.B. no one is actually rushing to be with me, so there is also that…maybe there would be protests, who knows?).
But this weekend, all across the county PRIDE was celebrated, and I went out to celebrate with some lovely friends. Here in Los Angeles, we went out to some great bars in Weho and were having a fabulous time. Until hatred and bigotry got in the way. Someone that my friend knew, joined us, and said something far too vile to print here. And we were kicked out of the bar along with him. I apologize, not on behalf of this sad, sad person that I don’t even know that feels like saying these horrible statements is ok and laughable, but instead for the fact that people are so uneducated and that I don’t take enough PRIDE in my freedom to love who I want to.
So, to all of you out there that have love in your life of any kind…boy, girl, mom, dad, brother, sister, dog, cat, fish…appreciate it and don’t judge others for their love…unless they are humping each other in broad daylight in the middle of children. Feel free to judge that and refer to my article, P. D. Ewwwwwww!.
And now back to your regular judgementally scheduled program…
