Some time ago, I came across this cartoon. As Homer says "it's funny because it's true."
I would apologize for being who I am, then keeping part of it a secret, but gosh, that is what I have been doing all my life, so it really feels natural. Plus, it keeps all those people with torches from visiting our home.
Sadly, there are those who get really angry because Halle is "just a man" and they can't deal with that. After all, nobody else around here was born a man, were they?
I do wish that some folk would remember that being screwed up and confused and hurt is what brought quite a few of us to this place. Finding any way at all to become better than we were is important. There is more than one way to do that.
This gem was dropped by Jay today, and I couldn't agree more:
"...maybe each of us does have our answer. But that doesn't mean that anyone else's answer isn't the answer, even if it isn't the same as our own. "
In my book, those who challenge us to really think are important, and I do not care if they are dogs or men or even women.
I need to be encouraged to think and dig deep into myself. Sadly, we seem to be slowly losing our best and brightest.
