So...

This is going to be a little random. But, I was putting away groceries and just clicked on the T.V. and MTV was on. I was probably watching Teen Mom because I can't get enough of that shit. It was True Life: "I want to be straight."

One of the people was a black woman who was a lesbian and pretty much ended the show as a lesbian. The other was a guy whose parents and friends are super religious and do not support him being gay. So, he tries to become straight. And every conversation is just like, oh, I talked to this girl, but I don't think I am emotionally ready for that relationship. And I, being the calm, tactful person that I am, am screaming "BECAUSE YOU LIKE PENIS" at the T.V. By the end of the show, he was just sort of like, well, I guess I am going to be alone forever. 

We are legalizing gay marriage. Slowly but surely it is happening. As a country, we are becoming more and more accepting of this lifestyle. Then there are his parents who basically will have nothing to do with him if he is dating men.

I just. NO. No. No. No. You are his parents. It is your job, as a parent, to love your child. 

I just don't understand. And every person who I have encountered that feels this way has tried to explain it to me and I still just don't understand. Nor do I think I want to. 

Also, I am completely soaked in sweat from going to the grocery store. So, you know, Erratic goes to Alaska coming soon.

Amen. That is all I have to say.

It seems so much more natural to love and accept a child than to judge and alienate them, right? I am not a mother, I get that, but dude, if my cat was gay...I would be buying him little rainbow hats.

I may or may not have had a lot of Jack Margaritas.

I have already told Tater N Tot that regardless of who they are I will always love them. They're 5 inches long and I haven't met them yet, but gay or straight I will love them. Nuf said.

I am so sad that I will not be able to partake in Jack Margaritas. However, I look forward to watching you get drunky drunk, yo.

My Word Verification word is "haryperm." Top THAT shit.
