I have a large family on my father’s side. Most of them are Catholic. I have one cousin, however, who was baptized Catholic yet left the Church and calls himself a “Bible believing Christian.”
He is among those who have expressed inaccurate points of view about homosexuality. His occasional diatribes cause me sadness. I am so sorry for him that he has been indoctrinated (some may say, “brainwashed,”) by others in his sphere to believe that homosexuality is a choice and is “practiced.”
Here are some things he has said in public statements,
We had a busy, productive, and happy weekend at the ol’ BHD/BB ranch. Saturday, I took the day off from the usual hustle and bustle of chasing lolits, and took my spouse to a car show.
How did we get there?
Lately I have been experiencing a writer’s block, as well as increasing annoyance with managing spam. Both of these issues together have made it difficult for me to get onto this blog and…
A friend of mine brought to my attention that an observation was shared on an on-line boot board about what guys were wearing at the recent Folsom Street Fair in San Francisco. The observation was, “They say that the Folsom Street Fair is the largest leather event in the world, but I’m sorry to report that only a small percentage of the crowd wore leather, and even a smaller number wore boots. It was shorts, jock straps, jeans, or nothing at all, along with thousands of sneakers, sneakers and more sneakers.”
My friend asked me what I thought about this. I have some ideas about how the demographics have changed in today’s culture among 20- and 30- year olds, compared with the culture and norms of the days when I was their age (1980s through mid 90s).
My faith is being tested again.
56 days… 56 days my spouse has been symptom-free from evidence of the toxins produced by bacteria from which he was infected by a tick bite several years ago.
A whole 56 days. If we got to 60 days…
Yep, here in North America, summer continues until 2229 EDT on 22 September, the date and minute of the autumnal equinox.
And yesterday I led the last ride of summer 2014 with my Harley club. We had a fantastic day. It was sunny and warm, with beautiful roads to ride on in my home state of Maryland.
Today I am leading a motorcycle ride for my club. It should be great weather for the last ride of the summer.
Yesterday, I actually rode the route in advance. Why?
Someone I know is an event planner. He does a very good job. I have heard many compliments about the events that he has organized, set up, decorated, and managed. He is gay. So what…. However, he fulfills many gay stereotypes from the sound of his voice to his over-the-top party planning.
He and I know each other because his grandmother is one of the LOLITs who I take grocery shopping. He learned that I married my man, and sent me a message of congratulations. I thanked him, then didn’t think a thing about it until…
Term “cooties” definition: “a children’s term for an imaginary germ or repellent quality transmitted by another person.”
I was communicating with a friend the other day, and referred to the term, “gay cooties.” I said that there are still people in this world who react to me as if I had “gay cooties,” withdraw, and keep their distance.
My friend replied to ask, “are there still neanderthals who think that way today?” He asked me to explain more.
The past few days have heralded cooler weather. Morning temperatures have been in the low 50s (11C). This is my favorite time of year to ride the Harley, though it takes a little longer to gear up. No sweat (literally). Time to leather up and ride! Where have I ridden lately?
