Shout out to all the closeted LGBT people who have to return to unsafe family environments this season. Remember that there is nothing wrong with you and that no, you are not a hypocrite for loving the people who raised you despite the things they have done to hurt you. Above all remember that you will always have friends who support you even if your family does not.
Mae Martin is the best! :)
Please do not laminate your queers
“According to Greek mythology, humans were originally created with four arms, four legs, and a head with two faces. Fearing their power, Zeus split them into two separate beings condemning them to spend their lives in search for their other halves.”
~Plato’s The Symposium.
How many times will I reblog this? “Always.”
One of the most beautiful myths around the origin of love. I found remarkable that the Greeks thought about the original beings as male-male, male-female and female-female. That’s how superior their society was
^^ anyone know if that last bit is true?
Well, that last bit is quoted in Annie On My Mind which makes it gospel. No further questions.
( I don’t necessarily believe in soul mates. But I do think the idea that we’re made to be part of two is true. )
"We’re coming up on a year of marriage."
"Tell me your favorite thing about each other."
"Her ability to intuit my moods."
"Her living room choreography of every song that comes on the radio."
I’ve been forced to explain homosexuality to my kids (aged 3 and 4) because their uncle is gay. This incredibly difficult and traumatic experience went as follows:
Child: Why does Uncle Bob go everywhere with Pete?
Me: Because they’re in love, just like Mummy and Daddy are.
Child: Oh. Can I have a biscuit?
We’re all scarred for life. Scarred, I tell you.
"The Reconciling In Christ program continues to expand! Join us in welcoming Light of the World Lutheran Church, the first RIC setting in Dakota County, Minnesota.
"All are welcome—no exceptions!’ has been the tagline that has grounded this congregation during their time of pastoral transition. The RIC program is another way they have chosen to live out this commitment. We are grateful for their ministry in and around Farmington, Apple Valley, Lakeville and Rosemount."
So thankful to be at my internship congregation.
