I am so tired of close minded people. I just had a discussion with someone about how “don’t ask, don’t tell” was deemed unconstitutional and now people can now serve our country openly gay. I find this absolutely wonderful since who is anyone to say who can and cannot serve our country based on who we love? But this person is so, for lack of a better term, truly stupid, that the only argument they had was to say that if they found out that their roommate was gay (they go to a military academy) they would be uncomfortable and that would affect their work. I proceeded to tell them that their reasoning is completely close minded and judgmental and so are so many other people’s who think this way as well. If someone wants to serve our country and help make it a better place, why stop them because they love someone who is the same gender as they are? That is the stupidest reasoning I have ever heard in my life. I am just thankful for people who think reasonably and see my point, and who don’t care who people love, just as long as no one is trying to marry the Eiffel Tower or something (we’ll save that for another time).
Just had a wonderful evening with some wonderful ladies; my aunties, my mother and my dear friends. It was so nice seeing all of them again after so long, and I hope I get to see them very soon! Tomorrow will be a very busy day, but I look forward to it as I know there are a lot of exciting things in store (hopefully!). That’s it for now, there is much to be done tomorrow!
