Back in the day I used to sneak off to California for a long distance relationship with my girl Miss Lemons. She got the nick name because she grew these huge lemons in her backyard.
We met in San Francisco and various other cities but she was a bit nervous when I visited her home town. She told me about her friends Johnathon and Robert. They were her two best friends and she hoped that I liked them. When I got there we went to their apartment which overlooked a beautiful valley. They were lovers who lived together and were planning a life together.
She asked me what I thought. I told her I did not care. It was like the weight of the world was lifted off her shoulders. She simply wanted me to accept her friends.
I really do not care who you sleep with. I do not care who you fall in love with. It is just not on the top of my radar. If somebody is cool with me, I am cool with them. Currently there are a lot of angry words being exchanged after President Obama said he supported gay marriage.
His Republican challenger Mitt Romney immediately came out and said a man should be with a woman. I suppose both men have strong reasons to believe what they do. If two gay people want to get married I am OK with that. It does not affect me. It does not hurt me. It does not bother me.
If you are against gay marriage, I understand your position.
Who am I to tell you who to be with? That is none of my business. I just want people to be happy. There is so much misery in the world and too many people looking for love. If you find it then grab onto it.
The whole gay thing used to bother me when I was a youth. There was a gay guy named Ezelle who used to flamboyantly walk through the neighborhood wearing all kinds of outrageous costumes. He had boyfriends. We used to laugh at him. Then one day we just stopped making fun of him and most of the neighborhood accepted him. He never bothered anybody. He’d help people with chores. So why were we dissing him?
Parents disown their children because of who they date and who they want to be with. That will never happen with me. If you find love no matter the size, package of gender I support you.
