No one should impose their gender biases against someone who is living their lives on their own terms. Too many people are discriminated against based upon their sexuality and gender by people who project their insecurities onto others.
As a white, heterosexual man I have no right to tell anyone who they should or shouldn’t love. Too many people who look like me have nothing better to do than to run the lives of others and to tell them that they are wrong for wanting to just live and love. To my fellow old white guys…stay out of the lives of people who you have no business being in the first place.
Love is love is love is love says Lin-Manuel Miranda and that should be enough for anyone. We are headed into times when people who have fought to be able to love who they choose are going to have it tough. They don’t need anymore grief or strife.
Love thy neighbor as thyself and perhaps we should seek to understand our neighbors for who they are and not who we want them to be. Maybe that would solve a few things.
