Get Out of the Left Lane!

This is for anyone who drives, or who may drive in the future. It’s not specific to frequent or infrequent drivers. If you drive at all, this is for you. The only exclusions are people who do not live in America, and will never drive in America.

Let’s talk about the rules of the road. There are laws, which vary by state, but as you’re expected to know those before you get your license, I’ll skip most of them. The most important ones are: red means stop and green means go, we drive on the right, and never cross a double yellow line. While those are important, I would like to talk to you about highway lanes.

Appreciate The Little Things [Part 11]

They always say to appreciate the little things in life, but sometimes, it the little things that drive you absolutely crazy!

Parts 1-10

  • Reese’s stick to the wrapper. You know what I’m talking about. All you want is for your Reese’s cup to come out of the wrapper cleanly. But it doesn’t work. There’s always a chunk of chocolately goodness that gets ripped off and left on the wrapper. Of course, you lick it off. You wouldn’t want that piece of chocolate to go to waste; there are starving children. Honestly, why hasn’t anyone come up with a way to prevent this from happening? The chocolate on the wrapper, I mean, not the starving children. Tons of people are working on that, thankfully. Poor starving children.
  • The lock on the bathroom stall. Now, I know what you’re thinking, this could go to any number of places. It doesn’t quite reach the wall. It’s jammed. It doesn’t line up properly. It turns the wrong way. It doesn’t exist. Honestly, is it too much to ask for a lock that works? I expect this is more annoying for women than for men because there’s usually a line in the women’s room, and a lock that doesn’t work means a stall that’s not being used. JUST FIX THE LOCKS!
  • Fruit cup lids. Who designed those? Why can’t I open the fruit cup without spilling it all over everything. I know, if you peel it slowly and carefully you might not splash as much. But I shouldn’t need to be trained in disarming a bomb to open a fruit cup. I’m trying to be healthy and fruit cup manufacturers aren’t helping.
  • YouTube ads.  Anyone who spends hours on YouTube just groaned. I don’t mind ads, especially if they are helping the creators of the videos, but give me an option to skip the long ones. And don’t show me the same ad on twenty-five consecutive videos. And I should be exempt from having to watch it if it has to buffer. I didn’t want to watch the ad in the first place, I certainly don’t want to wait for it to buffer. I’m fairly certain I’ve talked about YouTube ads before, but this is infuriating.
  • Cancelling TV shows. Now, I understand that every show ends eventually. That’s fine. But give me closure. I get it, you have to end the show because no one is watching it and you could put another show on in that slot and make more money. But chances are there were a bunch of people attached to the characters and interested in the plot. Cancelling a TV show without providing any closure is ending an action movie in the middle of the big car chase. Finish out the initially scheduled season and let the few viewers come to peace with the end of the show.

That’s all for this time!  Part 12 is coming soon!

Appreciate the Little Things [Part 10]

Parts 1-9

It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these. I’ve been thinking… why is it that ranting is so much fun?

  • Revving engines – Why? Why do people do this? Are you looking for attention? Do you just enjoy being irritating? What is the purpose? It doesn’t make you seem cool. When you’re stopped at a light, and you instruct your vehicle to make obnoxious sounds to show off, or whatever, its just annoying. Think of it like this: you’re waiting in line at the bank, grocery store, or where ever it is that you find yourself in a line with strangers, and you just start shouting, and making noises. The people in the line don’t say, “Wow, look at that guy. Isn’t he cool? I wish I could make a fool of myself in public.” No, it’s more like, “Well, I’m not sure if something is wrong with this individual, or maybe they want attention? Should I call the police? This person seems a little strange.” Long story short, you’re not cool, people aren’t envious or jealous of you, they just want you to stop.
  • Nice weather during the work week – Have you ever noticed how it’s always warm and sunny while you’re stuck in the office, or classroom, and then when the weekend, or your day off comes, it rains? Why, nature, why? I feel like I’m always stuck inside for nice weather. I make plans to have a picnic, or do something fun outdoors, and its cold, overcast, and threatening rain. If someone has an in with mother nature, please forward this complaint.
  • Misspelling websites – For those of you who don’t know, if you misspell a commonly used website, you’ll likely be redirected to a porn site, or a survey that won’t allow you to leave the page. Is this really necessary? I remember when I was younger, my friends and I were trying to access nickelodeon online, and being six years old, misspelled the web address. That, ladies and gentlemen, was the first time I ever viewed porn. To be fair, websites like facebook and twitter have bought similarly spelled pages and have them redirect to the actual page now. But honestly, who puts porn on a website that children could accidentally end up on?  What is wrong with people?
  • When your spoon falls into your soup – I know this has happened to you before. You put your spoon in your bowl and it disappears into your soup. Then you have to fish around in your food to find your wet, sticky spoon. Do you go rinse it off? Do you use a napkin? Do you try to play it off like it never happened? I’m sure there’s some awkward contraption you can attach to either the spoon of the bowl to prevent this, but honestly, it’s 2015, where are the hover spoons?
  • Stickers that don’t peel off – you buy some nice new item and try to peel the sticker off but it just rips. Then you think you can out-smart it and pull from another corner, but it just rips again. Then you’re left with the center of the sticker still on the book, looking like a mess. Plus, you have sticky residue left from where the edges peeled off. You know that’s just going to collect dust and turn black and gross. I have this problem with textbooks a lot. If you buy or rent books online they come decked out in “used book” and “rental” stickers from numerous different companies. I always try to peel them off just to make the book look a little nicer. BUT IT NEVER WORKS PROPERLY. Again, it’s 2015, why haven’t these disrespectful stickers been replaced?

As many of you may know, ranting continuously will only create more stress and anger. To keep my blood pressure at a safe level, I’m going to stop for now.

Appreciate the Little Things [Part 8]

I realize that when I started this ‘series’ I posted like three in one month, and after that they became incredibly spread out. I hope to post a few of these this summer to get back on track. I have a long(ish) list of these little nuggets of rant lined up and waiting to go. I’m going to continue to post five at a time as that has given a pretty good amount in the past.

Find previous parts here : 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7!

Let’s get started!

 

  • Automated Phone Service/Customer Support. This is terrible. How many times have you called your phone company, or your credit card company, or whoever, and had to sit through their customer service message pushing buttons for an hour. Press 1 for this, press 2 for that, press 3 for this other irrelevant thing. You sit through all of these instructions only to find that your problem wasn’t mentioned. So what do you do now? press the button that corresponds to the closest thing and see if you can get somewhere in the next set of instructions? What a pain.
  • The “0” Option. Some of those customer service messages give you the option to press 0 and talk to a person if you none of the options help with your problem. However, more and more of those annoying recorded messages are getting rid of that option. You will be forced to push thousands of buttons, to no avail. As companies are dropping this option, they are adding the ability to say a keyword having to do with your problem. That seems nice, you can just say what your problem is. That’s all good if you don’t mind repeating yourself fifty times.
  • Noisy Eaters. You all know what I’m talking about. If you don’t, you’re probably the problem. Anyway, nothing bother’s me more about eating with other people, than having to listen to them smack their lips or chew loudly. Seriously, all of that noise can be silenced if you just keep your mouth closed while you chew. It’s not even difficult to do. I don;t really want to listen to you eat. It sounds disgusting and it’s quite annoying if there is conversation going on. Didn’t your parents ever teach you to chew with your mouth closed?
  • Talking Obnoxiously Loud on the Phone. Don’t do it. Just stop. If your phone rings while you’re in the grocery store, stop and think, “Do I really need to answer this right now?” Here’s a hint: The answer isn’t always ‘yes’. If it’s someone you live with, they might be asking you to get something for them. You can answer that. If it’s your boss, you should probably answer that as well. A repair man, a mechanic, someone you are doing business with, that’s all fine, answer it. But your bff who is just calling to talk, yeah, that can wait. So, if you decided you better answer this phone call in the grocery store, you don’t need to shout. You can talk quietly. Remember in grade school when the teacher always said to use your inside voice? Yeah, that still applies. Also, when appropriate, ask if it’s okay if you call them when you get home. But most importantly, BE QUIET.
  • Slow Drivers in the Fast Lane. I understand there is a speed limit and you would like to follow it, but get out of the way. Yes, I am one of those drivers who hates being stuck behind someone. I wouldn’t call myself an aggressive driver, but I do yell at other cars a lot. Anyway, If you want to drive the speed limit, or slower, stay to the right please. Some people like to cruise around 70, or 75 mph. If you are going 50 mph, you don’t understand how frustrating you are. There are multiple lanes on the highway, and one of them is called the slow lane. That’s where you belong. I don’t really mind if you want to go the speed limit in the fast lane, but if you see someone coming up behind you, get out of the way and let them pass you. For all you know, they are in a hurry and you are making them very angry. Also remember that fast drivers are not necessarily dangerous drivers.

 

Okay, that’s enough for now!  Have a great day!

Appreciate the Little Things [Part 7]

It’s been a while! I think that’s how I started the last one of these. Oh well.

Parts 1-6!

Leggo!

  • Collecting Gays. Seeing as it is Pride right now (yesterday was Capitol Pride and I believe today is LA Pride), I feel this is appropriate. Anywho, does it bother anyone else when people want to be friends with a person simply so they can say they have gay friends? Maybe they think it will make them seem more loving or open to different types of people? I don’t really get it. I can’t even count the number of times I’ve heard someone ask how to meet and befriend a gay person. Like, really? They’re people, not collectibles. If you want to get to know a gay person or learn about gay-related things, then join a GSA or similar group to show your support for the community.
  • .GIF argument. It’s most popular on tumblr but has been found other places. Some people pronounce it gif. Some people pronounce it jif. it doesn’t really matter. The creator has said the proper pronunciation is jif, but why does it matter? You know what the person is talking about even if they don’t pronounce it like you do. I know I’m one for proper pronunciation of words but, think about it, the letter G can be pronounced two different ways. Don’t believe me? think about how you say the words “Gift” and “Giraffe.” See how its different? So who really cares which way you say .GIF?
  • “Made you flinch!” Really? Do you expect me to not flinch as your fist is moving at excessive speeds toward my face? I don’t think so. The fact that I did flinch shows that my brain is functioning properly. If I didn’t flinch I might be concerned.
  • Facebook game requests. People play all kinds of different games on facebook. I play some of them myself. However, I don’t play all of the ones that you do. Stop sending me requests for games that I don’t play! But how am I supposed to know what games you don’t play? Well, there are a few ways to know. Let me clue you in. First of all, if I haven’t responded to your last fifty requests, chances are that I don’t want to play the damn game. Second, most games have a nifty little option on the screen that asks you to select friends to send requests to. This particular option allows you to filter your friends list to show you only the friends who play that game. They’re the only ones that are going to send you coins or whatever so how about you stop nagging the rest of us?
  • Coughing without covering your mouth. Seriously? Okay, you’re sick, I’m sorry, that sucks. BUT I DON’T WANT IT. Don’t spread your germs. Do you realize that when you sneeze, tiny balls of snot fly out of your nose and land on everything around you? When you cough, spit flies everywhere. Cover your shit. This is one instance where sharing is not the best option.

 

Okay, rant over! I hope you enjoyed reading my sass. I have a pretty long list at the moment so more will be coming soon!

Appreciate the Little Things [Part 6]

Parts 1-5!

It’s been a while. I’ve been slowly gathering these as time has passed. Believe it or not, it’s getting more and more difficult to find new things that bother me. I can’t let every little thing bother me. I’d probably turn into Shrek and live in a cottage on a swamp in the middle of who knows where. Of course, I would probably write about how annoying the mosquitoes are. Who knows? On with the post!

  • Tagging photos on facebook. We all have that friend, or family member, who decides to tag themselves in your pictures. I find this annoying. If you aren’t in the picture, you’re name shouldn’t be next to it. Of course, there are exceptions. If someone wasn’t in the picture that was there, or the friend that took the picture, and so on. We can all figure out who should be tagged, and who shouldn’t be. Well, most of us can. Basically, if you aren’t in the picture, or involved some how, then don’t tag yourself. If you want to save the picture, because it’s cute or whatever, then save it to your computer.
  • “Going up South.” Don’t be directionally challenged. If you live in Nebraska, you are going down to Texas, not up. There always seems to be a person Who says they are going up to DC. Sorry, but we are currently above DC. You are going down to DC. Look at a map.
  • Religious Intolerance. You know who you are. And I’m not just talking about a single religious group. I know I give Christianity a hard time. A lot. But the truth is, everyone does it. Just my giving Christianity a hard time is a perfect example of religious intolerance. People who know me in real life, know that I don’t have a problem with Christians. At all. I think its a great religion. I just happen to disagree. Please respect that. If some one believes in something, you have no right to tell them that they are wrong. Of course, I’m always up for a philosophical debate. But a debate is, in no way, meant to insult anyone. To me, religion is personal. If you like to talk about it, that’s fine. Just make sure that what you say isn’t offensive to anyone.
  • Teachers that stand in the way of the board. No one can see what you are writing, drawing, or pointing at, because your body is in the way. I had a sociology teacher last semester that would project the power point, then stand right in the way of the screen. Move. This semester, my geography teacher stands about a foot away from the map, and points to a country. No one has any idea what he’s pointing to. Move.
  • Leaving lights on. If you aren’t using it, turn it off. Maybe it’s just the nature lover in me, but what I really hate is when im looking up at the sky and I can’t see a single star because of all the unnecessary light pollution. A more direct example? My roommate turns her desk fan on all the time. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve turned it off. She usually turns it to blow on her at night. It’s become routine that I turn it off every morning when I wake up. First, its noisy. Second, its cold. Third, its not being used so it should be off.

Well, that’s five. This will be back when I find some more things that bother me. I hope you enjoyed reading!

Removing God from Schools and the Events in Connecticut

As I am sure most of you have  heard already, there was a horrible shooting at an elementary school in Connecticut this morning. We all know how sad this is and that’s not what I’m here to talk about.

Watching the news, someone, as expected, asked, “How can God let something like this happen?” I have no problem with this. That’s their religion, and that’s fine. Then, either the guy he was talking to or the same guy mentioned that it happened because we have systematically removed God from the school system.

No, Sir. We have not removed God from the school system. We have removed the prayer to God from the public school system. You may say that’s the same thing. It’s not. Students are free to pray to their God as many times as they would like during the school day. Public schools still close during the Christian Holidays. Although teachers, coaches, principals, and other faculty cannot lead students in prayer, does not mean that God has been removed from schools.

Believe it or not, keeping school-led prayer out of the public school system is also keeping some bullying out. Before Prayer was removed, non-Christian students were allowed to leave the room if they did not want to participate in the Prayer. This, for obvious reasons, singled out non-christian students, and made them targets for bullying.

On the topic of holidays, public schools close for all major Christian holidays. Unfortunately, students of other religions are still required to attend school during their religion’s holidays. Some may argue that schools will excuse students from school during their holiday. But, these students wold still miss important lessons, and have make-up assignments.

In the end, not having prayer in school just makes it easier for every to get a good education. And to say that this horrible incident was caused by removing prayer from schools makes me sick.

Back to the tragedy in Connecticut. It is heart breaking, as many news reporters have said today. I think everyone will keep these families in their thoughts over the next few weeks and especially over the holidays. I’d like to remind everyone though, to keep the survivors and their families in their thoughts as well. Although those kids made it out alive, and their parents are grateful for that, they have lost friends and community members. Not to mention, the parents of the survivors have to explain to their young children what happened at school today. How you explain to a small child something that we, as adults don’t even understand, is beyond me.

People Who Are Apparently Not On Drugs.

If any of you have been watching the news lately, you’ve seen some of the stupid shit people are doing.

First, I’m going to talk about this woman who decided she wanted to swim from Cuba to Florida. That’s 100 and some miles. Are you crazy? And in the middle of summer? There’s sharks and jellyfish out there! Not to mention Hurricanes and other storms. Did you check the weather report before you decided to put this dumb ass plan into action? Then she goes and says that no one has done it before. No shit. There’s a reason. because it’s dumb. Well anywho, she had to cut her swim short because it became too dangerous. She ended up getting hypothermia. Maybe next time, you’ll listen to me. This woman… I can’t even…

Next, let’s discuss the Baywatch  girl who thinks she’s going to find Noah’s Ark. When I heard this story, my first reaction was, “And she’s on which drug?” Apparently, she hasn’t taken anything. She’s fulfilling her third grade dream of finding the ruins of Noah’s Ark. So this brilliant woman travels to Turkey to climb the mountain where the boat ruins are supposed to be. Part of the way up the mountain, she looks back and sees how high she is. She then decides that this mission is too dangerous for her at the moment. She looses her footing and falls and gets her face all beat up. She then says in an interview, “I’m not a professional rock-climber.” I respond to my TV screen with, “Well you’re a professional fucking moron.” Seriously, don’t you think that if there were pieces of boat just laying around, some one would have found them by now? And, I’m not very familiar with Bible stories so correct me if I’m wrong, but the Ark would have been made of wood, no? Sorry sweetie, wood breaks down naturally in the environment. It’s been thousands of years, I think its gone. Not to mention, there’s about six thousand places that people claim the Ark is. The most shocking part about this woman’s story is: after her decision that its too dangerous, and sliding down the mountain on her face, she wants to go back and try again. THE AMOUNT OF EVENS THAT I CAN’T.

And something that everyone seems to be talking about:

That senator, or the guy who’s running for senate. I know very little about politics, and honestly, don’t care because I’m not old enough to vote. I’ll start caring when I’m considered enough of a citizen to be able to have a say. Anyway, He made some comment about rape ans how some rapes aren’t legitimate. Sorry, but if I don’t want to have sex with someone and that someone does it anyway, that’s rape, it doesn’t matter where I was or what I was wearing, or whatever. Rape is rape. And for the people that claim to have been raped to get an abortion: Rape victims generally show signs of a struggle. And why lie? It’s just BS.

What the fuck is wrong with people?

I just… Oh my god. No.

Is killing all the stupid people genocide or population control?

I’m sorry, that was mean. We can’t do that. I need blog inspiration.

Appreciate the Little Things [Part 5]

Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4!

I’m posting late tonight so lets get this show on the road.

  • “Fuck the Police.” No. Fuck you for thinking you’re better than everyone else. You’re really going to say that about the people who help keep this a safe place to live? If there were no police, you would probably get robbed everyday, people would be abducted, raped, and murdered, a whole more than they already are. Sorry to be so gruesome, but its true. Just because a cop pulled you over, of arrested you or whatever, doesn’t mean they are worthless pieces of crap. Yes, some of them are “bad cops,” or jerks, but most of them aren’t. You can’t hate them for enforcing the rules. This isn’t Kindergarten, grow up.
  • I hate when someone says they don’t like a band for a stupid reason. My inspiration for this comes from my brother. He told me that he didn’t like Keane (I think he actually said that they suck) because they don’t have a guitar. So? Tat just makes them different. Do you hate them because they are different? I’m not sure how many times I say this (probably a lot), but the music isn’t all about the sound. It’s about telling a story or getting a message across. Its a form of communication. The instruments and vocals just make it more pleasing for your ears. The only type of music that I don’t like because of the sound is screamo or that stuff that you cant even understand the words. It just sounds like someone is being brutally murdered. That’s not very pleasant.
  • Bikini tops. This one is for the girls because I’m pretty sure most of the guys will have the opposite opinion. Bikini tops are made for girls with small boobs. But guess what? Girls with big boobs, also want to wear bikini tops, without having to worry about their boobs falling out. Not cool. Plus, America is fat. Most people have big boobs now. And fake boobs don’t count because that shit doesn’t move anyway. I’m talking about natural boobs that are at least a C cup. There are no bikini tops made for these boobs.
  • The toilet paper roll. In a previous post, I talked about replacing to roll when you finish it. That inspired me to talk about how to replace it. When you pull the toilet paper, it should be coming from the top of the roll. If you have to scratch your nails against the wall to get a hold of the end, you’ve done it wrong. It’s not a complicated task, but more people than you know, do it wrong.
  • English vs. Metric System. Everyone in the world uses the Metric system. Except America. You can make you’re cute little comments about how we’re America and we have to be different. Stop. It’s annoying. All we do is make it difficult to communicate with people from other countries. I don’t know how many of my readers are American with friends in other countries (or are from a different country with American friends), but its irritating having to constantly translate the temperature, or inches to centimeters. You could always just learn the other system to avoid having to translate, but who wants to learn two measuring systems? I don’t. But I did. America needs to get it’s act together. Stop trying so hard to be different. While being different is perfectly fine, I encourage it, but sometimes America goes a little over board.

I just want to make it clear that I have absolutely nothing against America. It’s a wonderful place. It’s just a little too cocky sometimes.

Well, that’s it. It might be a while before we see part 6. I have one bullet left on my list. I’m out of ideas. I can’t be bothered by everything, after all. If anyone has any ideas, feel free to comment. Comment. Comment. Comment. Seriously, Comment. Anything that bothers you? Don’t lie. Something bothers you. Maybe my nagging for comments bothers you? Tell me about it. Comment. The button is right below this post. Go ahead. Comment.

LGBTQIAP….?

I’m here to talk about sexual orientations/identities, and the controversies surrounding their legitimacies. I’m going to talk about the most common orientations, and some of the less common ones. I can’t cover all of them because that would take forever, and honestly, I don’t know them all.

Heterosexuality

The sexual attraction to people of the opposite gender.

No known controversies, probably because it is accepted by the Judeo-Christian religions.

Homosexuality

The sexual attraction to people of the same gender.

Homosexuality is not accepted by major world religions and many governments do not recognize it’s legitimacy.

Bisexuality

The sexual attraction to both genders.

Bisexuals are often accused of being confused or unable to decide on homo- or heterosexuality.

Transgender

The self identification of a gender other than that of the persons biological gender, or one who identifies off of the usual gender scale.

  • Transsexual- One who identifies as the gender opposite of the one assigned at birth. Transsexuals may undergo surgery or hormonal adjustments to align their physical gender, with their mental gender.
  • Transvestite or Cross-Dresser- one who identifies as the gender assigned at birth, but dresses as the opposite gender. This does not include actors taking on a role, people dressing as the opposite gender for masquerade purposes, or those involved in transvestic fetishism (cross-dressing for fetishistic purposes).
  • Gender Queer- One who does not fit into the stereotypes of one gender or sexuality. They may or may not identify as more than one gender or orientation.
  • Androgyne- One who identifies as between genders, or does not fit cleanly into socialized gender stereo types. Androgyne identities include: pangender, ambigender, non-gender, agender, gender fluid, and intergender.
  • Drag Kings and Queens- Those who dress as the opposite gender for performance reasons whether it be acting, comedy, or grotesque.

Most controversies surrounding these identities stem from other peoples confusion. People don’t know whether to call them male or female, and usually can’t wrap their head around some changing their gender. You might recall the controversy surrounding the Miss Universe transgender contestant.

Pansexuality

Those who are sexually attracted to people of all gender identities. Most self-identifying pansexuals call themselves gender-blind. Pansexuality differs from bisexuality in that bisexuals are only attracted to two genders, male and female. Pansexuals are attracted to people of all identities.

Being a less widely known sexual orientation, there are no known controversies surrounding the orientation.

Intersex

Intersex individuals are those who do not physically and/or hormonally fit into one gender. Intersex people can be born with both male and female genital and/or reproductive organs.

Controversies in this area come from allowing the parents of the intersex child to chose what gender they want their child to be, then allowing sex-change-surgeries on the child, obviously without the child’s consent.

Asexuality

One who doesn’t feel sexually attracted to any gender identity. They do however, feel romantic attraction to a specific gender. Asexuals can be any of the orientations/identities listed above. Asexuals have no desire to have sex, but will do it for their partners pleasure, or to create a child. Asexuality differs from celibacy in that celibacy is a choice, asexuality is the lack for sexual attraction.

Controversies come from the legitimacy of the idea, and whether it should be considered a sexual orientation or identity. Opposers of asexuality as a real thing, claim that it is a stage of sexual confusion in a teenagers life. Others claim that asexuals just haven’t found the right person, haven’t experienced sex yet and don’t know what they’re missing, or that they just aren’t sure of their orientation.

Questioning

This term applies to those who are still exploring their sexuality, or are unsure of the label they fit into. It can also be used by those who do not wish to fit into an orientation or identity.

There is no know controversy over the topic because it is not an actual orientation, but an identity people take on while searching for what to identify as.

 

Conclusion

There are a lot of orientation/identities. You may not have known all of the ones listed above. Or maybe you did. The funny thing is: that’s not even all of them. What I don’t get is why anyone questions the legitimacy of any of them. Why would people identify as something that will only bring them discrimination? Even if you want to call it “just a phase” it’s still what that person identifies as. That’s something you need to respect. Just because you don’t understand it, or you don’t know what it is, doesn’t mean it isn’t real. If someone told you that they follow the Baha’i faith, would you instantly disregard it as a made up religion? If you did, you’re wrong. It’s a real religion, small, but real. Just like there is no “one, true religion” there is no one, true orientation.

Whatever your sexual orientation/identity you are, that’s okay. There’s nothing wrong with it. I don’t need to know what you identify as to tell you that its okay because every orientation is okay. Every orientation is beautiful. Every orientation is normal. You are beautiful and you are normal.
