I am tired of being told that something as fundamentally important as my ability to love is not only a sick perversion, but a damaging abomination to humanity as a whole that needs to be eliminated or at least suppressed.

I'm tired of being told that my 10 year marriage to my husband is a sham comprised of immoral lust and that we are incapable of loving each other, despite the fact that he stood by me and cared for me when I was sick in bed for three years and almost died from Crohn's Disease.

Even worse, I'm tired of people telling me that they're saying this BECAUSE they love me too much to not tell me God's truth.

I can handle all that. I have a family that loves & supports me and a husband that I am blessed to share my life with.

What I can't handle is the thought that GLBT youth who aren't lucky enough to have the support I do are bombarded with these same messages day after day and end up depressed and hurting or killing themselves because of this hate. It needs to stop.

Hey! I was browsing through some folks who are members of the LJ NaNoWriMo group and thought I would say hi.

Your latest entry really yanked out my heart strings. Sometimes, I forget that 2013 is still a shitty, dangerous, intolerant, and all-around poopy place to be sometimes. (I live in an echo chamber, you see.)

My hope is that soon (or now), people will slowly but surely get better. I'd like to see some of those idiot straight bigots decide to have lots of gay sex for a year or two, then realize that it may not be a choice after all. I am ok with someone having beliefs, but that does not give ANYONE the right to shame other people because their beliefs are not mutually shared.

Anyway, this is turning out to be long-winded and I am getting tired. But I did want to share some love & let you know that the big mouths are a very loud minority. Don't let those jerks get you down. Easier said than done, I know!

Hugs!
