I am gay

Now, after you have recovered from your mini heart attack and cleaned your screen of the coffee you just spat all over it, read on.

This is not a confession, I am not coming out!

Today’s prompt focuses on how the meaning of words have changed over the ages and I have chosen gay.

In the late 1800’s the word was used to describe a carefree or happy attitude. Today, however, it’s a different story altogether.

When we got home today, I told Luke that I am gay. His expression went from shock to disbelief and then blank. Ever the inquisitive one he then asked: “So how did you and my dad get me, WAIT WHAT!? Does that mean you are going to get a girlfriend?!”

I had to laugh and he was not impressed.

Why do we feel the need to label it when someone loves a person of the same sex though? Why can’t they just be left to love whoever they want? At least they have love. Two of my best friends are gay and I love them to bits. I have never looked at them differently because of who they love.

I wish we all could be gay.

With more gay the world would be a better place. Who would want to rape or murder if they were truly happy? Who would want to gossip or steal if they were truly happy?

So friends, here’s to a very gay weekend to all of you!

I am a free spirit born in the Free State, 20 years to late. I am Ying and Yang. I am the girl next door who prefers daisies and peace rallies, but can just as easily rock at a rally. I love all things Latin and am sure that in my previous life (if that existed) I was Spanish. The dark side of me, however, tells me that I lived in Mother Russia. I am an over thinker par excellence , in constant search of answers to all things that makes us human. What we do and, more importantly, why we do it. I hope you enjoy my rambles and would love to hear from you. If you like it here, please come back, comment and share. If not, let me not waste another second of your time. All I ask is that you respect my space, be constructive and leave negativity at the door. There is enough of that in this world we live in and yes, in my head too sometimes. Not everything here will be liked or agreed with. Some of it will be downright rude, crazy and straight forward. Not everyone will like me and what goes on in my head, but this is my life and my space. Enjoy the ride
