The L Word, Commentary

The battle , the debate  of many states recognizing same sex marriages and relationships,  arouses my curiosity for understanding .   I know that a television show The L Word, is not the true depiction or interpretation, but it sure imitates life.  The show translates  a culture  of  stories that shares insight to the unfamiliar.

I never understood the world between same sex genders.  I have lived a very sheltered life.  I come from a place of unfamiliarity, the last thing I want to do is judge and criticize.  If  I do not impose my way of being on anyone then I want the same freedoms.  I want to live my life the way I choose to.  The same set of rules needs to apply to everyone.

Why should the rights as a heterosexual  married person be validated when  heterosexuals do not give integrity to the sanctity of marriage. I believe there is an ignorant population out there that feels there is darkness and an infiltrating  outbreak that it is contagious.   Homosexuality represents a perverted sexual culture for the uniformed.  When people have fear they react or act un-human like.  Things that are different, unfamiliar pose threats to individuals.  Instead of checking themselves they rather backlash at something or someone else. I had one gay male friend at one point in my life.

Religion says same sex is an abomination but what do you think went on in the Roman days, men with boys , men with men, and now the Vatican in uproar of sexual abusive priests!

I say live and let live ( as long as no one else is getting hurt) a victimless life journey!

If anyone wants to share, please feel free!!

My Personal Triumphs And Strifes With Communication

I have shared that during my childhood I became withdrawn with my family, not sharing feelings, interest,  dislikes, all the questions, experiences of life lived.  So I learned and created my own form of communication. I am not saying that I have come full circle but I have been presented with situations to improve my voice.  I still struggle here and there but It is nice to know that I’m not the only struggling communicator!  Communication has its place depending on its setting, dealing with family, relationships, friendships, children,businesses or business relations.  It is as if we were all writers and every ten years,  or before, we write our story, communicating what we have processed(changed, eliminated, added, learned) we write about new adventures or becoming more sedentary.  Life is fleeting and things can change in seconds, minutes, hours, weeks, months or years.  Every individual has his or her own story,  internal beauty, and when words are spoken or written on a page, they are meant to be understood, or shared.  If the message is not clear, then get clarification, every story has its own identity and individual importance. People want to be heard, they want their thoughts, convictions to translate what is in their heart and mind.
