Yeah I wrote a lot. :)
In other news, over the last few days some kind of theme has popped up and I’m not really sure why. I caught a very fascinating doco/biography on one of the movie channels this morning. George Michael – A Different Story – which was really interesting and there was a lot of stuff I didn’t know. And the day before, I saw an episode of Morgan Spurlock’s 30 days. The show is a little difficult to explain, but the episode I saw they took a guy who was quite prejudiced against gay people, and he lived with a gay man as a room-mate for 30 days as well as moved to a place in San Francisco which has a large population of gay and lesbian people.
Now let me state right now, I have no issue with gay people at all. Lesbians, well I had a scary experience in which two very butch ladies pushed in front of me in the queue at the chicken shop recently. It was terrifying. They both had shaved heads, and they could have crushed my skull with their pinky fingers, more than likely. They clearly wanted chicken desperately, and who was I to stand in their way? Other than that, whatever people want to do in the privacy of their own bedroom is fine by me.
And I think marriage between two people who love each other should be fine regardless of who those people are or what sex they might be. And if two people who love each other want to walk down the street holding hands or showing affection, no problem. As long as they don’t strip off and get jiggy with it, and I’d object to that whether it was a guy and a girl or two guys or two girls, because I really don’t think sex in the streets is a wise idea. There’s broken glass, and stuff. You have to be careful. I wouldn’t even go barefoot, but that’s just me. Each to their own.
What I do have an issue with is prejudiced people. And I think shows like Morgan Spurlock’s show really can have an impact on people and their prejudices. If you get a chance to see it, in particular that episode, it was worth watching.
Because George Michael kept so much of his life private (which is entirely his right, by the way, and I fully support him doing that) I did not know many things about him. I grew up in the days of Wham, and like most girls totally adored him and I have to say have a new respect for him after watching that doco. Anyway, I found it interesting. :) Just thought I’d share.
