This is another post I’ve been trying to figure out how to write…Yeah, it’s a ramble to make a point.
I’ve said before, and they know, this blog is specifically for some friends. It has a broader goal of trying to change perceptions. Those perceptions have to change so that things will change for my friends. The logic is a tiny bit circular. *sigh* I use the friends as examples to advance both goals…
I was listening to a song by Queen “Somebody to Love”. *editorial, I love Freddy’s voice and Bryan May’s guitar. I digress* The point of the song is that the guy just wants to love and be loved. That song sticks in my head because I spent many years of MY life believing it wouldn’t happen to me. It did and I’m married to a Lady that is the Love of My Life.
No one looks at my love and judges it. No one says that we should have children. *editorial, we married late in life for the first time each. THAT clock has ticked* No one would presume to tell us that we are wrong. No one would look into our house…*sigh*
I love Z to pieces. *editorial, I’m glad I’m married and she’s gay, otherwise, I’d have to consider moving someplace cold.* *grins* *again, I digress* People do look at her and judge her. They would go into her house and say she’s wrong.
What’s the difference between what she wants and what I want? What makes wanting “somebody to love” any different if you’re gay or straight? What makes one love “legitimate” and another not? The basic desire for love and security transcends all logic. I think, after our survival needs, it is the most important thing. It gives us the courage and strength to go on far past the point where we would quit. It inspires us to write. It has created Art and Music.

Like I’ve said before, I think Z is great. She’s a “neat” person. *pardon the fogieism* I hope she does find a love. I hope that lady realizes what a great Lady they’ve found. I hope Princess Charming rides off into the sunset with her Princess. *editorial, Z will probably object to being called a “princess” grins.* Y’all will never realize how happy I’d be for both of them.
Back to the point. Why do we, outsiders, presume to look into someone’s life and judge their love. We all need “somebody to love”. How ’bout we try this new idea, Love and let Love. *bad paraphrase* Humans need love, gay humans, straight humans, married humans, single humans, young and old, we all need love. Who are we to decide someone else’s is wrong?
