Both Derrick and I are amazed at how cruel people can be just saying or doing what they think is funny. I am not sure if the couple was trying to be insulting, but we know a few Lesbians. They are the kind of people that we should all aspire to be. I'm sure in any group there are awful people, but at least from our limited experience, there are far worse things to be called than Lesbian. Derrick and I rarely get called Lesbians, so we appreciate knowing the proper response should it ever arise. We would also be happily married, but early on we found living in sin was so much fun, we never got around to visiting the courthouse. We might reconsider if we ever find a wedding cake that tastes good, or if we really need a new toaster and blender.
We like your sidewalk art. We like your response to bigotry. People who grow plants seem to get that nothing on this planet lives independent of everything else. We are better when we realize that, and work to make all our lives a bit easier by just being kind. Such a simple lesson that seems to be so foreign to so many. We're glad you are a gardener. We're glad you're happily married. We're glad that you can kick butt with the best of them. We're sorry you're not a Lesbian, but hey, no one is perfect.
"B" = Bisexual
Let's just say I have no problem with sexuality. I've been to Goth clubs in Chicago, NYC, DC, London, Dublin & throughout Eastern Europe. You would never believe the strange & beautiful creatures that have crossed my path.
