    Until restitution is made it rings hollow in my ears.

    Roman Catholic by birth---thoroughly confused by life.

      This type of thing is accepted because many believe that there are normal ways to live and then variations.  Many people say I am made this way, or god made me this way, so it is a variation from the normal but one that is intended.  The problem with that is it leads to questions is this really a real variation, is this something we can fix, and if it can be fixed then isn't it something that can be fixed.

      But really why does there have to be a norm, and if there has to be a norm why does it have to be what some random old people say it is.  yes, heterosexual make babies, but what does that matter.  Any couple can make a baby and any couple can love a baby.  Share the babies.  Love who you will.  Today it is a person of the same sex.  Next year it may be a person of opposite sex.  Whatever.  I know many people who play when they are young, and then make a commitment based on what they want long term.  It is life

      This guy is an example of what happens when you accept that certain things are normal.  By acknowledging that even if things can be "fixed" most of the time they shouldn't be, it makes every one life's better.  Maybe if we spent more time loving ourselves and each other there would not be so much conflict.
