On to More Productive Things

In light of some colorful behind-the-scenes comments I’m getting….

My friends are gay. I didn’t point it out specifically because it didn’t seem necessary. The point of my story was that my friends, parents of a girl who fought like hell for her life and lost the battle, were struggling and I was thinking of them. Their sexuality had no bearing on my intent. And here’s the thing: It’s not just that I don’t care. Rather, it never even crossed my mind that I should spend the time and energy to form an opinion about their relationship.

Other peoples’ sexuality and/or identified gender is absolutely none of my business, any more than my sex life is any of theirs. That’s all there is to it.

So. Rather than spewing hate because two women had a child whom they loved and cherished (the nerve!), let’s focus our energy on something more productive. Lord knows we have enough real problems in the world.
