A Message To My Little Boy …


The Musings Of An Opinionated Sod [Help Me Grow!]

I wrote this:

If my son turns to me and says he’s gay, I would hug him and tell him I loved him and that I hope he finds someone who makes him happy.

If my son told me he had found a man that made him truly happy, I would hug him and tell him I am so excited for him and can’t wait to meet him.

If my son told me he had met the man of his dreams and told me he wanted to get married, I would probably cry tears of joy and say I am proud

I mean every single word of that … and yet, despite it being 2019, the LGBTQ+ community continue to face constant harassment and exclusion.

This scares me to death because as a parent, I would never want my son to suffer for his sexual preferences. And no one should.

Now Be Fair


A few minutes ago my head exploded. Tempered debate of racism focused on recent Trump remarks suggesting four Congresswomen of colour go back to their native country. Polite reminders, all but one (Somali born representative Omar) were born in America, met begrudging acknowledgement. Then this, a comment so absurd violent brain splatter erupted without apology –

Surely this shows he greatly respects them compared to white women?”

Pardon me? Were you dropped on your head? WTF!!!!!
